Weekly Menu

Last weeks plan went nothing like, well, planned.  It was all for good though.  My parents came over this past Saturday to bring me some furniture (my piano!!).  As they were getting ready to leave Josh asked (for about the 10th time) if they could go home with Papa and Nana.  I told him it was up to Nana and only if she didn't have plans otherwise he would have to wait.  Well, of course Nana said yes HA!  If you have followed this blog for any length of time you know that when my kids go away, I don't cook!  We are still being super conservative with money so we knew that we had to keep it on the down and cheap :-)  Sunday afternoon, after church, we went to the Chinese Buffet.  It's always nice when just the two of us get to go because it is easy . . and cheap :-)  We can eat there for less then it costs to eat at a Fast Food Joint :-)  Then, we decided our one "date night" dinner we would go to Outback.  We have eaten there twice in the last 4 months and really liked it.  Monday night, it was not that great.  My steak was terrible.  Because of that, though, my meal was comped so our dinner, which included two salads and two meals came to under $20.00!!!  Finally, Tuesday was Darryl's first day back to work; he has been craving Jet's Pizza and we have been waiting for him to go back to work so we could get one (since he has to get it before heading home) so yes, we had pizza!  Anyway, that means that this weeks menu will look very familiar!

Saturday - We will have some family time today.  We have options - an event called Art Prize begins this week so maybe we will head into see some art or we will head out to some fun park or even some little fair.  What we eat will be determined by what we do :-)

Sunday - Roast, Carrots, Noodles and Rolls YUM!

Monday - I have a hair appointment so we'll just have Hot Dogs and Chips.  That way Darryl can feed the boys and I can eat when I get home.

Tuesday - BBQ Chicken on the grill, Baked Potatoes, Corn and Rolls

Wednesday -  Meatball Soup and Bread

Thursday - Soccer :-)  (We are coming to the end!) We'll get fast food - this is something the boys really enjoy being able to do - go out to eat after they play

Friday - Tacos!!!!!
