Menu and Stuff

I did make a couple new things this week. But the thing is, I won't post the recipe unless I just really like them. And honestly, I didn't. They weren't horrible, but they didn't make my heart go aflutter either. So, nothing new to report. For now anyway.

Instead, I think I am going to plan out the week's menu. And hope that next week fares better in the food department. (I will say that I still like the chicken salad from my last post and have eaten it several times this week, so the week wasn't a total bust.)

Saturday: Breakfast- pumpkin muffins, dinner- Bubble Up Pizza (new recipe)
Sunday: Fall Pork Tenderloin, fingerling potatoes, rolls, and black eye peas. By the way, I looked up the calories for the pork tenderloin and the fingerling of the lower calorie meals I make! That might help since Child 3 and I are making Oreo Truffles for dessert.
Monday: Breakfast for dinner (pancakes, bacon, fruit)
Tuesday: Tacos, salsa, chips, refried beans (Child 4's meal choice for the week)
Wednesday: On Your Own night
Thursday: Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken (new recipe), wild rice, buttered rosemary rolls, veggies and Ranch dip
Friday: Lasagna Rolls (new recipe), garlic bread, salad
Saturday: Eat out (I am guessing)

Well, I have most of the week planned anyway.

And maybe I will have some good recipes to share...

So what is for dinner at your house this next week?

  1. I love how you keep trying new recipes and reporting on them. It's inspiring! I also love how you get the kids involved in the meal cooking and planning.

    For us, the coming week is very strange, since I will be chaperoning several HS students at an academic competition in the Metroplex.

    Sunday: Trying a new recipe from this year's Operation Rice Bowl, Ifisashi (with spinach, not collard greens)
    Monday: Asparagus stir fry, so Jim will have leftovers
    Tuesday: TAPPS District Meet
    Wednesday: Salad (getting home late)
    Thursday: Casamiento, also from ORB
    Friday: Leftover Casamiento

    Have a great week!
