Weekly Menu - Thursday is the new day!

As I mentioned last Saturday, I'm moving my weekly menu post to Thursday since that is now my shopping day.  I know, you are beyond excited, aren't you?  :-)

The past few days, I used up some things we had on hand - Tacos on Monday, Chicken and Dumplings on Tuesday, Mac and Cheese on Wednesday.  Super easy and cut down on the grocery bill too.  Now it is time to get back into the groove though !

Thursday - Chicken Noodle Soup and Homemade bread.  Anytime I make Chicken and Dumplings, I turn the "leftovers" into chicken noodle soup.  I really dislike cooking on grocery days so this is perfect - it is already done!

Friday - Tonight is the Good Friday Service with several churches in the area so to keep dinner easy, we are going to have a freezer meal - it is actually the leftover Chicken Taco's from a few weeks ago that I froze.  We'll add chips and salsa and maybe some rice if I feel like cooking it :-)

Saturday - I'm thinking the kids will have Mac and Cheese and Darryl and I will order in for a date night :-)

Sunday - EASTER! Our church hosts a breakfast in the morning - I'm going to make the Cherry Turnovers I posted on Friday.  For our Easter Dinner the plan is:  Maple Glazed ham, Cheesy Au-Gratin Potatoes, Classic Green Beans, Deviled Eggs and Rolls.  For Dessert will be Colorado Creme and Bunny Cupcakes.  I think we will have a Tid-Bit tray when we get home from church with Cheese, Crackers, Pickles, Salami and Grapes to hold us over for a couple of hours until I can get dinner cooked. 

Monday - I need to use up some Pasta Shells so I think we'll have stuffed shells and french bread..

Tuesday - To use up Ham From Easter we'll have Ham and Scalloped Potatoes, Garlic Bread and Asparagus

Wednesday - Either left overs or maybe a pizza :-)
