Weekly Dinner update... week 6 of 52

Monday night... was baked potato night... and what goes better with a baked potato than salad and biscuits with strawberry jam?

Tuesday Night... Guinness Beef Stew and Irish Soda Bread...
Both of which were homemade by me!

Wednesday night... Cesar Salad and Ritz crackers with tuna... yumm!

Thursday night... I ate beans and rice... It's not pretty to look at but... it sure was delish... Whenever I eat beans and rice I feel like I should be living in a yurt in Mongolia... I know... I'm weird that way. The peeps had burritos... I think we still have about 62 flour tortillas in the freezer... so we'll pretty much be eating soft taco's once a week for the next 2 months... or more

Friday night the girl who thinks she's a bird had a bunch of her peeps over and we made stir fry together. We all sat around and talked about the Holocaust and then Charlie the Unicorn during dinner... and then one of the girls starting singing a Japanese rap song... Have I ever told you how much I LOVE teenagers?

Saturday it was fend for yourself night... It was going to be left over Chinese food night but someone ate all the chicken stir fry and fried rice for breakfast... I ate beans & rice (of course)

Sunday we had pot roast over at my parents house...
the roasted vegetables were my favorite...

Not a very exciting week dinner wise... I guess I was extremely busy clipping coupons, picking up cans and other crazy stuff. BUT... I'm having a great time... and that's what counts. Hopefully I can get around to opening a cookbook sometime soon and make something exciting.


  1. You're stir fry looks delicious. Tell me about Irish Soda bread. Does it really have soda in it?

  2. That stir fry looks like it was made by professionals!

  3. Yummy sounding stew and irish soda bread ~ I love roasted veggies too...and yes, you have been a very busy girl Mavis! Have a great week! :)

  4. Throw in a salad ... and I vote for the beer stew!

  5. OH Jeez, I wasn't hungry before I looked at your blog, now I am off to make some supper..

  6. Thyhand... it has baking soda in it... not soda soda... I'll post about the bread and stew soon :)

    JJ...Hey thanks... I think I could eat stir fry everynight.

    Camille... thanks you too :)

    Mrs. Mac... It's my favorite beef stew...very hearty. I got the idea for it when we ate it in Ireland at the Guinness Storehouse for lunch. It's Delish!

    Art...Soooo what DID YOU eat for dinner?

  7. I can't wait until you post the stew & soda bread recipe. My mouth is watering!!!


I LOVE comments BUT if you know who we are...due to the fact that we are currently enrolled in the international witness relocation program because of a moon shining incident in Dingle, Ireland involving 3 Mutton, a pair of red shoes and a road flare .... please do not reveal our personal information.... You know.... like names, places, or our favorite brand of toilet paper :) Hey, thanks!
