Menu Plan Monday Week 2

Wow! Where did the week go? In our family we call this Irish time (previously known as football know 5 minutes is really an hour, etc). Several of our children are Irish dancers and we have found that anything related to dancing or competing is notoriously off-schedule or late-running. You just have to embrace it and move forward. So ahead we go! Our meal plan for this week.....

Monday: Mac and Cheese, Salad & Bread (switched from birthday Saturday when the birthday boy decided nacho fries would be a better dinner choice)
Tuesday: Steak and Cheese Burritos with Chili and Queso
Wednesday: Pork Tenderloin and Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Onion Gravy (the bad-breath special!)
Thursday: Turkey Pot Pie Surprise (Surprise! It's turkey again!)
Friday: Family Fun Night: Pizza Movie: G-Force
Saturday: Lasagna Burgers (pictured above)
Sunday: Italian Sausage and Peppers with Parmesan Risotto

I have taken the challenge to the breakfast and lunch tables as well. As long as we have flour eggs and milk I can make almost anything....pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls. So far we have recycled some banana bread into French toast and spooned pureed strawberries we found in the freezer over it. We also made oatmeal pancakes today that made good use of the wheat germ I've been trying to sneak in to my husband's diet!

  1. The pancakes were not too bad. Julie said she would grind the oats next time so that the oat "flakes" (they remind me of fish scales) were not so noticable.
    Great flavor though. When the "scales" are gound up I am sure I will eat a bunch!


I am so happy to have you at the table! Thanks for stopping by and come back often!
