Menu Plan Monday 03.24.14

It's another new week, so that means another new menu plan. It is a hard week to plan for because we are having company this week, and Saturday is youngest's birthday party. Belated, thanks to all the snow. GRRR! So not only do I have to plan for us, but for the busy nights we will be out running. Oh well, the planning must go on. Monday: Tonight's meal is crockpot creamed chicken. My youngest actually eats it, so I am not complaining! I will hopefully have a recipe for it to post next week. Tuesday: French toast and turkey bacon. I also have strawberries, blueberries, and apples to use as toppings. Wednesday: Velveeta … [Read more...]

What’s For Dinner This Week 03.17.14

It's another new week, so that means another new menu plan. It was a hard week to plan for because we are just sick of the same old things. I guess that happens when you have a family that doesn't like to try new things. Or only likes a few things. And it's not just the kids, my husband is the same way. Oh well, the planning must go on. So this week I went for a few of our favorites. The kids even like everything on this menu. Monday: Tonight's meal is chicken and mushrooms. Minus the mushrooms. Yeah, that makes total sense, doesn't it? But don't tell the family, I do sneak them in! Tuesday: Another favorite meal. Barbeque … [Read more...]

My menu plan for this week. Fast and easy is on the menu

Menu Plan Monday 03.10.14

It is the start of a new week. Of course, a new week means a whole new set of busy days. Now that time change is here, it is light longer at night. For some reason, I find it much easier to cook. Even though hubby still comes home later, there is something so satisfying about eating supper while the sun is still up. Today is Nana's birthday, so supper will be quick, as we are going to visit her. In fact, I am not sure if we will even get to eat supper together tomorrow. And the rest of the week is pretty busy as well. So, this is going to be a short post, with quick and simple menu ideas. Today: Since the chances of hubby making it … [Read more...]

What Is Cooking This Week: Menu Plan Monday

It's been another one of those week's again with one thing after another. Work has been busy, the kitchen has been a mess. So what is cooking this week? Seems like the theme is chicken. But no problem here, chicken is always something we can eat. This past weekend, we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. I don't normally like talking negative about a place, but the food was really lousy. The service wasn't too great, either. Since they are newly opened in our area, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I really couldn't. So, I figured I better concentrate on my own kitchen this week.

It’s Beginning To Look Like Christmas: Menu Plan Monday

As always, it is Monday, which means Menu Plan Monday. It is another hard week to menu plan because everyone is in different places each day this week.

Menu Plan Monday: Week of October 13th

There is only phrase containing three words that strikes absolute fear in my heart.  And it happens again each week.  What is it, you ask?  I bet you know, because you have probably been asked it every week too.  Ready for it? What's for dinner?  Huh, that's it?  Bet you were probably thinking of all kinds of scary phrases in your head, right?  Nope, that's it.  What's for dinner.  Three words that can erase my brain completely, and reduce me to tears.  Well, maybe it is not that dramatic, but still, you get the point.  We have been so busy with baseball that I haven't had time to sit down and plan a weekly menu, or even cook that much. … [Read more...]
