Weekly Menu - a day late

I missed a week.  I tend to do that every once in awhile so when I planned the menu last week I had appointments in the wrong week and forgot about other things so we did not follow the planned menu well at all!  I'm back on track this week so I think we'll be a little better off!

Saturday - We are going to my in-laws for the day and she has instructed us to not bring anything :-)  I'm sure it will be a great day and I always like it when I don't have to cook!

Sunday - This is our first real football Sunday so I've planned some football food.  I wanted things that we could eat after church and then snack on throughout the day.  I'm going to cook a big pot of Chili (which is nice for leftovers and then to freeze for another meal in a few weeks).  The snacks on my mind as of this writing are:  Strawberries/Pineapple with our favorite fruit dip, Holiday Bacon Appetizers (this are great because I can freeze the left overs and take them out in a few weeks to enjoy during a game), Cheesy Bacon Bites (a family favorite that I will cook up later in the day), Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip (this is still on my "maybe" list), Little Smokies (yum, yum YUM!), and maybe I'll make two cheeseballs (but cut the recipes in half for each of them) Now, don't freak out by the list.  Ultimately, I'll probably only end up putting 1-3 of these items on the list but I haven't narrowed it down yet.

Monday - Today is my husband's x-ray AND MRI (not last week!) so we will go into town as a family, maybe do some free fun (Like the big bacon and egg play land at the mall) and get some dinner before his appointment.

Tuesday - Tonight is Pan Fried Pork Chops, Salad, Savory Rice, and Rolls

Wednesday - Philly Cheesesteaks, Broccoli Salad, Coleslaw and Jell-O Salad.

Thursday - My plan is to make a big pot of Sloppy Joes.  The boy's soccer game is later this session so I think we'll try to eat before hand.  The sloppy joes freeze great too so we can use them in the future.  We'll also have left over salads from Wednesday.

Friday - Tacos!  I'm hungry for Fish Tacos again so that is the direction we'll go.  Plus, we should have some left over coleslaw from Wednesday to use as the topping !
