I didn't do a menu plan last week. Last Sunday I was just not in the mood for it, so I decided to wing it for a week. It wasn't too bad. I fixed what sounded good, and this went well with the crazy week that we had. We got new windows put in the house - wow, was that an undertaking! I'm glad it's done, though, because now I can actually OPEN windows in this house, which is wonderful on these warm, breezy spring days. We didn't go out, so I was fairly successful at not making a weekly plan. This week, though, I decided to make one.
Monday - Sonja's Chicken (recipe from the Living on a Dime newsletter - I have some heavy cream leftover from making ice cream and this sounds like a great way to use it up and it's a NEW recipe!), mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, homemade rolls.
Tuesday - Grilled pork chops with apricot/orange glaze (we experimented and came up with this last week and devoured it!), cheesy broccoli rigatoni (another new recipe to try), the rest of the rolls.
Wednesday - Sloppy Joes, rice, corn. The older kids have been asking for sloppy joes. I think I still have some buns in the freezer, but if not, I'll make them.
Thursday - Chicken alfredo pizza. We always have pizza on Fridays, but this Friday we can't, so we moved it to Thursday.
Friday - Family Fun night at the girls' school. We will be feasting on hot dogs and chips! (Can you say heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach.......)
Saturday - Bierocks and Pizza pockets (from a couple of weeks ago), crunch top potatoes, green beans.
That's my menu plan for the week. This week isn't as crazy, but if the weather cooperates, I'll be out in my garden a LOT. I have lots to do to get it ready, and then the planting will begin. I will definitely be busy. I'm also subbing in 1st grade tomorrow. Yes, I do believe I'm nuts...I'll post a picture of my garden soon and you will KNOW I am! :)
