Weekly Menu

Last weeks menu went pretty well.  I did forget that Darryl planned to go back to practice starting last week so Wednesday nights dinner changed.  The good thing is that I wanted to make a big pan of Lasagna so I could make my own freezer lunches - this gave me a great opportunity to make it since he wouldn't be home to drool over it :-)  So, leftover Thursday was Ham for Darryl, Lasagna for me, and some Mac and Cheese for the boys.  Here is what is on the plan for the coming week.

Friday - Valentine's Day!  Spaghetti with my "famous" homemade sauce (instead of the jar stuff).  I made a big double batch so I could freeze some to use for Sunday evenings and Leftover night as needed. Then we had french bread and Salad.

Saturday - I have two options right now. 1)We will take the boys out to their favorite Chinese buffet if Darryl thinks he can handle eating there.  2)The boys will have something at home and we'll order in.  I'll leave it up to the big "D"

Sunday - Right now, my plan is for this to be my "Day out" so, if that is the case, I'll bring the boys back home after Church and leave them Spaghetti and bread while I head into the City for the day to do some shopping, eat lunch at one of my favorites and just get away for the day.  IF that changes before Sunday, I will do a pork roast in the oven with green beans, Mashed potatoes, and . . .you guessed it, rolls :-)

Monday - Ham Fried Rice and Egg Drop Soup (Mac and Cheese for the boys).  This is a carry over from last week.

Tuesday - Teriyaki Chicken Legs, Savory Rice, Corn and Rolls

Wednesday - Roasted Pork Loin, Thai Noodles, Broccoli and French Bread.  (I don't think Darryl will have practice tonight . . . . )

Thursday - Leftovers!!!!

What I'm NOT Reading (oops!)

So, for the second week in a row, I have nothing to write about when it comes to my list of books to read.  I'd love to say it's because I've been busy saving the world but, no, that is not the case.  What is causing the problem?  Well, I will confess that I've become "addicted" to a game on my computer that is actually Nate's . . .it is a silly little Nemo game where he has to grow a reef by "planting" all kinds of fun things and "earning" algea and for some reason it has sucked me in!  In fact, it is the first game I've played where I have almost spent money to buy pearls so that I can complete some tasks.  No, I am holding strong on my mantra of never spending money on a game but I have gotten all of the free ones I can get for the time being so . . .some tasks will remain undone.

I need to get back into a daily to do list, which I have let slide due to the house being so cramped and crowded lately with kids and their stuff  . . .and the Olympics.

Speaking of the Olympics, I was saddened last night when Shaun White did not place for a medal.  It felt like an end of an era but I was more than impressed with his integrity, how he whole heartily congratulated the winner who said later how Shaun was HIS role model. 

With that said, I'm off to write a grocery list.  My husband is unexpectedly home today so I think my Thursday night grocery run might happen during nap time today instead!
