Menu for the Week. I Think.

Sorry I didn't post much last week. Life was a little busy with parent/teacher conferences and Valentine's Day, so I didn't try out a lot of new recipes. I don't know that I will this week either but I should have a recipe or two to share along the way.

Here is my proposed menu for the week. This really holds me accountable and helps me to have a plan...

Saturday (last night): dinner with extended family
Sunday: On Your Own (we ate out for lunch). I did make chicken salad for myself. I will probably share that recipe in a day or two.
Monday: Skillet Pork Chops with white rice, carrots/Ranch, and bread
Tuesday: probably fast food. I don't like doing that often but one of our kiddos has her last volleyball game and we are having an end of the season gathering at a local fast food joint.
Wednesday: On Your Own night
Thursday: Almond Chicken casserole (new recipe, pushed back from last week due to scheduling conflicts)
Friday: Popcorn and shakes (Hubby and the two girls will be at a Daddy/Daughter dance, so it will just be me and the boys)
Saturday: Crockpot tostadas, salsa, chips

I am also going to try a few new things. A gluten free meal (for a friend), some "light" Ranch (a version of it), and a new dessert. I will let you know how it goes.

So what is for dinner at your house?


  1. We have just recently started planning our meals. It helps a lot since Paul works late some nights, so we try to have leftovers for those days so he can bring it to work and I don't have to get home late and cook (which I hate). Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I thought I had posted this, but I guess not. :) Thinking back a week:

    Sunday: Salad and baked potatoes
    Monday: Snow pea stir fry with brown rice(we are addicted to this)
    Tuesday: Leftover stir fry
    Wednesday: Ash Wednesday
    Thursday: Salad
    Friday: Tomato bisque soup with baguette
    Saturday: Bean and veggie burritos
