I didn't think that I would have any food prep this week. We had stuff left over from last week to use up and I just didn't buy a lot of extra stuff. I actually went to the store twice - once on Thursday, my normal day, and picked up enough to get us through a few days. The heat index was over 100 so the thought of loading, unloading and putting away all the groceries was too much. Instead, on Saturday morning the boys and I went to the store on a much cooler morning and finished up the weekly shopping. Well, I did have prep after all so here it is!
We are taking the boys to my parents for the week so, this coming week's menu will look a little different.
Friday - Baked Chicken Thighs, Potatoes and some veggie off the pantry shelf.
Saturday - We are eating dinner at my parents house :-)
Sunday - Corn dogs and Tater Tots :-)
Monday - Marinated Chuck Steaks, Sweet Potatoes, homemade garlic bread
Tuesday - My husband doesn't know this yet but we are going out to dinner to one of our favorite restaurants
Wednesday - Our Anniversary is Sunday but my husband has to work all weekend; he has this day off so we are going to take off and celebrate today. He doesn't know what we are doing but I do :-)
Thursday - I'm going to make some fun food for tonight. A big plate of nachos, a new cocktail shrimp recipe (yes, a recipe!), and our favorite Bacon Crescent Wraps. Sometimes it is fun to have snacks when the kids are gone :-)
I would like to make Southern Praline Pecan Cake for something sweet and then some sort of cookie - not sure what yet :-)
