Monday's Menu

Wow - I'm late getting to the computer today!  It's the first day of Spring Break and we were way too busy having fun  :o)  We spent the morning at the Springs much fun stuff!

Sunday - Brian had poker night, so we kinda faked our way through dinner.  I had cereal, and the girls had leftovers I think
Monday - Breakfast for dinner: Homemade waffles, eggs and turkey bacon
Tuesday - TACOS!!!  (a family favorite) and Mexican rice.
Wednesday - minestrone soup, bread   (i gotta use up my frozen soup - Brian hates soup in the summer and it's pretty much getting to be summer temps around here)
Thursday - Beef stir fry bowls
Friday - tortellini salad and something BBQed - we never had this last week...I'm fixing the salad for an Easter party, so I'm hoping there are leftovers :o)
Saturday - 3 cheese pepper penne  (a new recipe and our meatless meal - if it's good, Ill come back and link it)

It's Monday

So that means, time to post this weeks menu!

Can I just gush for 1 second please?  Tonight will be 8 days in a row that we have had homemade dinner as a family (all 5 of us at once)!  Thats no eating out - no take out - no fast food - no cheater meals.  In fact we havent had ANY fast food in over a week - NOT EVEN IN & OUT...which is kind of amazing.

So, What are we eating this week?
Sunday - Swedish meatballs.  although I don't make meatballs, I just cook the seasoned ground beef like tacos, make the sauce, and pour it all over rice, corn
Monday - Stromboli, salad, fresh fruit
Tuesday  (soccer)- crock pot chicken and rice soup, homemade bread, carrots and ranch
Wednesday - Chicken fettuccine, salad, crusty bread
Thursday - homemade pizza - probably individual pizzas, so the kids can play along, smoothies
Friday - breakfast for dinner.  Probably waffles, eggs and turkey bacon...with OJ of course
Saturday - tortellini Cesar salad, grilled chedderwurst, fresh fruit.  - we are going to some hot springs in Death Valley for the day, so I needed something easy

...and I love them! 

well besides for the fact that they are upside down  :oP   I checked the proof too, and I ok'd them just as they made them - my bad.  It won't matter too much for the stuff I make.  I will mostly just use them for side labels...and even if I use them in clothes I can still just do a side label instead of a tag on the back - but now I know for next time.

Aren't they pretty?!


We are actually home every day this week for dinner!  That's exciting to me.  Not excited that I have to cook all 7 nights, but excited to have a family meal every night.  We try super hard to sit down, all 5 of us for at least 1 meal of the day!

Sunday - spaghetti and meatballs, salad
Monday - cheese steak sandwiches, tots, fruit
Tuesday - tacos, Mexican rice
Wednesday - cheesy shell stuffed shells, salad, bread  (our meatless meal this week)
Thursday - orange chicken, rice, green beans
Friday - roast, potatoes, carrots  (soccer @5, so this will be in the crock pot and ready when we get home)
Saturday - BBQ something, not sure what yet though

hummm - looking over this, I just realized I have no recipes to link...they are all just either thrown together or in my head.
