I should know better. I do really. But for some reason I skipped making a menu the last couple of weeks. Our meals have suffered. Our nutrition has suffered. I have suffered.
Making a menu keeps me on track. It cuts down on the time I spend in the kitchen. Seeing our menu written down in black and white helps me to see what we are lacking in our diet, usually vegetables, and what we have too much off, usually carbs. ugh. I am better able to see what we are eating and what I need to do to get our nutrition where it should be.
Another plus to making a menu is I usually stick to what’s on the menu so I save myself the time of walling around the kitchen trying to come up with something to make.
I know that I am not alone with all of that. That’s why I encourage everyone to make a menu.
Now onto some yummy food pictures!
We, well, my son, cooked hamburgers over our fire pit.
I tried a new recipe from the Venison Cookery cookbook that I have. Bacon Wrapped Venison Tenderloin. My pork bacon got lost, I later found it hiding behind the eggs, so I used turkey bacon. I think it would be better with pork, though.
I seasoned the tenderloin with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, then wrapped the bacon around it. I secured it with toothpicks. I then browned it in butter.
After browning, the recipe said to cover the skillet, and let it cook, turning occasionally.
It came out great!
It looked good after slicing!
And looked great on my plate! I served it with homemade cheesy noodles and corn on the cob. Corn was on sale when I went shopping!
For the cheesy noodles, I cooked a package of egg noodles and drained them. I added some milk, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. I didn’t measure anything, lol. Surprisingly, lol, they tasted pretty good!
Sunday, we had BLT’s. Actually BLTC. Gotta have the cheese. Cheddar cheese slices to be exact. Yum!
Now that I made a menu for this week, I should have a much easier time in the kitchen this week!
