Weekly Menu

Well, we had a curve ball thrown at us this past week - my husband is having some pretty severe stomach issues and was put on, first, a clear liquid diet and then slowly moved to a bland diet with very little "real" food.  He's been eating banana's, animal crackers, and baked potatoes.  I'm at a loss of what to cook most days for myself and the boys are enjoying their favorites - Mac and Cheese, Hot Dogs, and Pancakes.  So, writing a menu for this coming week is a little difficult.  I decided to focus more on what I wanted to eat and then just make Darryl what he can  eat (things like plain chicken, plain rice, baked potaoes ect)

Friday - This is normally Taco night but we'll going to skip tacos for now.  I am going scrapbooking for the evening so I'll leave Mac and Cheese for the boys :-)

Saturday - This is "mom's night off".  I'll get either McDonald's or Taco Bell for the boys and I; Darryl will get a baked potato and some applesauce

Sunday - We are heading to my parents house for the day most specifically to see my niece before she heads to Brazil to see my brother (her dad) and sister-in-law (her mom).

Monday - This is soup night!  This is easy - I'll be making some Meatball soup.  This is one of my favorite soups!  I'll add some homemade bread, which both the boys and Darryl can eat. I think Darryl can also eat the broth and orzo that is in the soup since it is a mild soup.

Tuesday - Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken sounds good to me!  (I'll cook Darryl a plain chicken thigh).  I'll add rice, which everyone can eat, and broccoli.

Wednesday - This is breakfast night so I think waffles, which everyone can eat, and sausage/bacon.

Thursday - I'm going to try something new tonight - Greek Spinach Feta Chicken Pockets.  I'll cook up a plain piece of Chicken for the big D.  I was trying to think of what to cook with this dinner that we could all eat so I think I'll do baked potatoes and  green beans  I might bake some biscuits too.

For snacks this week I'm going to make a great cheese ball recipe that I love (and Darryl doesn't HA!) I'm not sure about a sweet treat at the time of writing this . . .:-)
