Menu Planning

It's been quite a while, but I've tried to set up a menu plan, since payday is Tuesday and we've got a few days home in the next couple weeks. Here's hoping I can feel like sticking to it, eh?

Monday (4/29): Chicken nuggets, tater tots, and corn. Not too exciting, but we're a bit low on choices currently.
Tuesday (4/30): Popcorn Parmesan Chicken. A favorite, and my daughter's request once we've got some groceries on hand. And I'll also make garlic bread, because it's son's favorite.
Wednesday (5/1): It's fend for ourselves night around here. Hubby will have friends over for their racecar build night, and they'll head out to eat together at some point in the evening. The kids and I will figure something out.
Thursday (5/2): Enchilada Casserole. We haven't had it for a long time, but I think we liked it? LOL
Friday (5/3): Breakfast for dinner. This is son's request. The highlights will be some Vanilla French Toast and bacon. Maybe I can find some yummy fruit too?
Saturday (5/4): Hubby and I have a family wedding to attend, and the kids get to spend the night with Mimi and Papa. :)
Sunday (5/5): We'll be seeing the high school's production of Addams Family earlier in the afternoon (after picking the kids up from Mimi & Papa's). Maybe a picnic style dinner? Some hot dogs with chili, baked beans, maybe some potato chips and dip?

Monday (5/6): No Peek Beef Tips. Probably with some rice and a nice green veggie.
Tuesday (5/7): There's an election in the township where I serve as an election chairperson. So I'll be at work - allll day. So my dinner is pizza, provided by the township.
Wednesday (5/8): I'm anticipating another Wednesday build night.
Thursday (5/9): Sooo excited - we have tickets to see the Wild Kratts in Ann Arbor. We won them from Raising Little Princes. Can't wait!!
Friday (5/10): Everyone here loves some chicken and dumplings in the crock pot. It's pretty much a regular in my menu rotation. It's also easy (yay crockpot!).
Saturday (5/11): Baton competition - no cooking!
Sunday (5/12): It's Mother's Day. Don't look at me for dinner plans!
