Weekly Menu

Hello!  Last week went pretty much like planned but due to a snow storm on Tuesday, we had to move dinner plans with friends to Thursday.  We ended up having spaghetti on Tuesday night since I hadn't taken anything out of the freezer to use for dinner.  Spaghetti is one of the boys favorite meals so it worked out well :-)

Can you believe it is March?  I feel like I just said "can you believe it is February?".  We are fighting the normal spring colds in this house but I think we are all on the mend finally.  I wouldn't mind one more good snowstorm this month before spring actually hits. Last year we went from a very mild winter right into summer during March (by that I mean from 30's to 80's overnight). I'd really like a spring with days in the 60's and nights still in the 30's.

So, that had nothing to do with our menu :-)  This weekend I'm working on giving a slight make-over to my recipe binder - I'll share photos next week (you can't wait, can you HA!).  For now, here is our menu plan:

Tuesday:  Korean Taco's, Chips and CHeese and Roasted Green Beans.  This is a recipe that got bumped from last week.  I thought my husband had a concert Sunday so my plans changed but he didn't, so plans changed again :-)

Wednesday: Apple Stuffed Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes and Carrots.  This was also on the plan for last week but didn't happened due to the change in meeting friends for dinner.

Thursday: Crock pot Pork Loin with apples, Homemade Mac and Cheese and Peas.  I've been trying to make this for weeks and want to get it done this week to see if it is a keeper :-)  I need more crock-pot recipes to use in the summer!

Friday: The kids will have Mac and Cheese for dinner; Darryl and I will order in - we haven't done this in awhile since the past few weekends that he has had off, we've had other plans.  Maybe we'll rent a movie too!

Saturday:  We have no plans today! (What??)  If the weather is nice, maybe we will introduce geocaching to the boys if not, we'll just hang out at home.  I happened to catch a Rachel Ray episode last week while Darryl and the boys were out running errands and saw this recipe for Monte Cristo Stuffed Chicken that looked really good.  I'm going to try that tonight and serve it with rice and broccoli.

Sunday: Slow Cooker Pesto Ravioli, green beans, and garlic bread.  Darryl DOES have a concert tonight so we will grab something to eat after the concert.

Monday: Stuffed Meatloaf (a family favorite) mashed potatoes, corn and biscuits.

I have a couple of different cookie recipes in the plans for this week and I think I'll make a Peach dump cake for our dessert this week.
