Welcome to my weekly menu post! I also like to do a little update and throw out random things periodically in this post :-) We had a great week - the weather was pretty much perfect making it easy to get things done.
I became reacquainted with an old friend this week. Who, you ask? Well, you need to ask "what" because it is Nestle Quik (Nesquik). See, I love Chocolate milk. I try not to buy it but . . well, I love it :-) What I don't like is Hershey's Syrup in milk to make Chocolate milk so I finally gave in an decided to buy some Quik and see if it tasted ok. Wow. I forgot how good it is - it tastes "almost" just like the REAL Chocolate milk. The good news is that it is a little better health wise than Chocolate milk - less calories, fat, carbs (especially since we drink fat free milk anyway!) So yes, now I can have chocolate milk every day for breakfast :-)
It is supposed to be warm and humid this coming week so I am planning meals to try and keep the kitchen kinda cool - grilling and the crock pot :-) My kids usually love bread with things . . .I have decided yet to serve some rolls/bread or not. If I do that means I have to turn on the oven and I'm trying to avoid that in the late afternoon. The salads I plan on making first thing in the morning so the main cooking is done before the house heats up too much
Here's what we are eating this coming week
Saturday - Eating out
Sunday - Chicken Tacos, Cilantro Rice, and Chips/Salsa
Monday - Hamburgers on the grill, Pasta Salad, Fresh Pickles, and Honey Lime Fruit Salad
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Coke Chicken, Seven-layered Salad, Mixed Veggies
Wednesday - Beef Tips and Noodles in the Crock pot with noodles and left over salads
Thursday - Parmesan Chicken on a bed of greens with Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing and Grape Salad
Friday - I'm going scrapbooking so I have Chili Dogs, chips and left over salad planned (or Broccoli salad if the others are gone) for the "Boys".
