Here is a list of what I planned on making for dinner this past week:  

1. Pulled Pork
2. Spaghetti
3. Cheesy Potatoes
4. Baked Potatoes & Broccoli
5. Tacos
6. Hot Italian Sandwiches & Homemade Fries
7. Tacos

And here is what we actually made this week:

1. Sunday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches
2. Monday: Cabbage Rolls
3. Tuesday: Cheesy Potatoes
4. Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner
5. Thursday: Taco Pie
6. Friday: Pork Tenderloin
7. Saturday: Spaghetti

Sunday: We had some pulled pork in the freezer, so I pulled that out to thaw and added some BBQ sauce to it and made BBQ sandwiches. I served this with corn on the cob and potato salad. 

Monday: My daughter requested cabbage rolls for dinner recently, so that's what I made today. I served these with steamed broccoli and seasoned rice. 

Tuesday: I pulled some ground beef from the freezer and made Cheesy Potatoes for dinner. I served this with steamed broccoli and corn and also had some bread sticks to serve. 

Wednesday: We went to town to use faster WiFi to work and stayed later than we planned. We didn't get home until 7 p.m., but I still managed to cook something and not go out to eat or pick up fast food. 

I don't normally  make breakfast for dinner, but eggs are quick enough to make, so that's what we did. I served it with toast, some leftover mixed vegetables and sliced tomatoes. It hit the spot.

Thursday: I had one pound of ground beef in the fridge to thaw and decided to make a taco pie. We had a can of crescent rolls we bought on mark down for 53¢, so I baked that, made some taco meat and baked it long enough for the cheese to melt. I served it with lettuce, tomato, and onion on top along with a dollop of sour cream. 

Friday: I took a Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin out of the freezer yesterday to thaw and made that in the Instant Pot today. I made potatoes in my other Instant Pot and made mashed potatoes with those using half and half that my daughter picked up on mark down. I served this with green beans & onions as a side dish. 

Saturday:  This day I went to pull some meat from the freezer and Italian Sausage was right up front, so that's what I pulled out. I made spaghetti and used fettuccine noodles since they were up front too. I served this with a side salad and garlic cheese bread sticks.
