need help!

ive really stagnated recently i dont appear to be going up in strength or size particularly, im doing the following routine:

workout A

bench press 3 sets
db flys 3 sets
squats 3 sets
military press 3 sets
french press 3 sets

workout b

pull up 3 sets
db row 3 sets
deadlift 3 sets
lat pull down 3 sets
db curl 3 sets

the workout is A, B, A one week and B, A, B the next etc

im aiming for reps between 5-8 on most exercises and normally go to 1 rep below failure on each set

i am eating a lot of food about 3000 calories a day, im 5 10 and about 157lbs and my weight has been creeping up slowly. ive been having spoonfuls of olive oil to make up calories with each meal if im short. 

my diet is as follows:

bowl of cereal with semi skimmed milk
protein shake with 300ml full fat milk
tbsp of olive oil

can be many things but i have the following quite frequently
2 slices wholegrain bread, 2 eggs
cup of full fat milk (approx 350ml)

mid afternoon snack
protein shake with 300ml full fat milk
1tbsp olive oil
peanut butter sandwich

lots of different main meals such as a stir fry or fajitas or roast etc
cup of full fat milk

glass of full fat milk
bowl of peanuts

before bed
protein shake with full fat milk
2 tbsp of olive oil

i will often have a chocolate bar somewhere in the day as well.

all meals are seperated by approx 2-3 hours

i dont know if im just being impatient or what it is just a bit frustrated, help is appreciated
