Menu Plan Monday
Boy, a menu plan certainly does make my day-planning easier.
MONDAY (10/14): We still have a few more weeks of swimming followed-by Chinese carry-out. And now it's even more justified, as Jack has asked to have mommy in the pool with him each week. Mommy is less than thrilled. Just three weeks left, and I do it to see him having fun.
TUESDAY (10/15): Kielbasa and shells & cheese. Maggie's been feeling a little run down for nearly a week. Hopefully one of her favorites will help her eat-up and stay strong against the germies.
WEDNESDAY (10/16): I've been dying to use my new Dove Chocolate Discoveries Red Wine Cooking Sauce. I may do a bit more research in the next day and a half, but I'm thinking a good cut of beef from our freezer plus half a jar or so of the sauce in the crockpot all day on low....
THURSDAY (10/17): We haven't had any OMG Taco Bake in a while...
FRIDAY (10/18): City Chicken, with rice and a fresh veggie. Unless we end up going to the Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo this night??
SATURDAY (10/19): We're definitely looking for quick and easy, as we have the Spooktacular Stroll at a local nature center this evening. The kids always love spaghetti (meat sauce for Jack, more noodles for Maggie...).
SUNDAY (10/20): While I'm not a big fan of bone-in steaks, I think we have a few of those still in the freezer. Probably a good day to grill em up!
MONDAY (10/21): The end is in sight! Just one more Monday after this one that is scheduled for swimming and carry-out dinner.
TUESDAY (10/22): Tacos. Hopefully I can make the time to go pick up some Rio Wraps sauce.
WEDNESDAY (10/23): We really enjoyed the Popcorn Chicken Parmesan one of my Facebook friends suggested previously. Even the leftovers got eaten! Let's try that again.
THURSDAY (10/24): Busy night! Tonight is the Spooky Spectacular at Maggie's school, or she may opt to go with mommy to vendor bingo (we haven't won anything lately - I think it's our turn!). Dinner is leftovers or whatever you can find.
FRIDAY (10/25): Mommy's got chocolate work one way or another. Either I've got a tasting party scheduled, or if that doesn't pan out (remember, I'm writing this almost two weeks in advance), I've offered to step in at a fundraiser.
SATURDAY (10/26): This is the weekend before daddy leaves for another race. His availability will be pretty much non-existent for the next week or so. Maybe we can do make-your-own pizzas tonight? Maggie and I have fun with it, and Jack always loves pizza.
SUNDAY (10/27): We haven't had Enchilada Casserole in the crock pot since the first time I made it. And there's usually some extra, since there may be an extra person or two in our garage working on the race car.
