A Menu in the Works

I have been working on the menu for the week. Some weeks it just falls into place. Other weeks, like this one, I am just at a loss as to which direction to go. I try to use different proteins, vary the starches, vary the cuisines. It isn't easy. I doubt my family will ever know how much thought goes into this process. If they did, maybe they wouldn't be so quick to critique what we are having. :)

I do have a recipe I can't wait to share and hope to do so tonight, so check back in.

Anyway, here is where we are right now...always subject to change, of course.

Saturday (yesterday): Braided spaghetti bread, Caesar salad, birthday cake with buttercream frosting For me personally, the whole meal was yum, yum. I am really glad it was my "calories don't count" day. :)

Sunday: Pan seared swai (trying it a new way), Almond rice pilaf, Italian bread with Gorgonzola
(also a new recipe)

Monday: Salisbury steak (new recipe), Garlic-herb mashed potatoes (new recipe), rolls, carrots and Ranch, a dessert of some sort (Child 2's choice)

Tuesday: Chick Fil A (school event that night AND it is our youngest son's birthday)

Wednesday: On Your Own night

Thursday: Pork chops ole, garlic bread

Friday: Crockpot chicken parmesan (new recipe), angel hair pasta, salad, probably a bread of some sort :)

I can't think beyond that. :)

I know it seems silly to post this each week but it does help me plan out our meals and our grocery meal. And it really does keep us from eating out as much; I remind myself we have food and a plan...there is no reason to go out when we can eat at home.

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