Menu Friday

Happy Friday! So, so glad the weekend is here. 

We have another fun-filled weekend of house stuff to do, so I won't bore you with the details. 

Here's what we ate this week:

It poured, so we ordered Piggie Pies Pizza and had some vino. 


Slow-Cooker Cube Steak + English Peas and Crescent Rolls 

This was probably the ugliest dish I've ever made {hence why I'm showing you the ingredient-ses and not the meal}, but it was so tasty. And easy, to boot. The longer you keep this bad boy in the Crock Pot, the more tender the meat becomes; I think ours was in there for about 11 hours -- ha!

I always like to make quick and easy meals on a Monday, because I always think Mondays are lame enough as-is, without having to come home and slave over a hot stove. 


Again, another very easy and yummy meal. It makes a lot, so be prepared. 


I took a note from "It's Complicated" and made Croque Monsieur for the first time, and we weren't disappointed! 

It's definitely not a pretty sandwich {I'm sensing a theme here}, but it sure is tasty and relatively easy. The hint of nutmeg and Dijon mustard take this sandwich over the edge, and honestly, you take your first bite and go, "What's in this?" 

The risotto is a quick, yummy side dish that was perfect with this sandwich. Sure, I could have done chips or something, but if I'm going to do what is basically a hot ham and cheese sandwich, I really want something else a little heartier on the side. 

Leftovers. Brandon had his Fantasy Football "draft" {lame} and I snuggled up with Oliver on the couch to watch my DVR'd "Real Housewives of NYC." 

Tonight, we're having a night in and I'm making The Pioneer Woman's Fettuccine Alfredo {and adding chicken, of course} and a Caesar salad. 

Brandon ordered "Friends with Kids" from Netflix, and I'm stopping to get a bottle of wine on my way home from work. 

Happy Weekending!
