Weekly Menu - When March becomes April

Here's a little known secret about our family .  .. we love to eat out.  Ok, maybe that is a well known secret!  We enjoyed eating out on some family adventures this past weekend - it sure makes my life easier!  HA  But we still must eat at home most of the time ;-)  I'm working hard to stick to our grocery budget which means a little switch up this week in my preplanned monthly menu but that's ok, I'm flexible :-) Speaking of that menu (which I love), this will be the last month of the "Winter" menu.  In May, I'll switch out many of the dinner options for things that are grilled or don't cook in the oven for any length of time.  Things like Lasagna, Enchiladas, and Meatloaf will go away until fall!   

Saturday - Today we'll be heading to AWANA Olympics and going out to lunch with the grandparents.  So for dinner, we'll do something simple like Pizza - Probably homemade.

Sunday - Darryl is working today so the boys and I will grab lunch after church.  Dinner will be another simple meal.  Soup and Sandwiches - Broccoli Cheese soup with little ham sammies YUM!

Monday - Lemon BBQ mini Meatloaves, mashed potatoes, Carrots, and Rolls

Tuesday - Applebees :-)  (Kids eat for $0.99)

Wednesday - Pancakes and Sausage

Thursday - So, I have a turkey (or 2) to cook.  So, today I'll do just that - cook a turkey.  We'll have baked regular and sweet potato (Darryl prefer's sweet potatoes!), and green bean casserole along with some biscuits.  (All the leftover turkey will go in the freezer to use in future meals!)

Friday - Tacos - of course :-)
