Weekly Menu

We've had a few simple weeks without too much going and this week continues that pattern for the most part.  I'm looking forward to fall, as I do this time of year every year, not just because I enjoy fall very much but because we get to return to some of our favorite meals like Lasagna, meatloaf, and lots of soups!  For now, we need to make better use of the grill and all of the fresh veggies that are starting to show up in the farmer markets. 

Saturday - Despite our spending freeze, I'm planning for dinner to be brought home by the big D.  Pizza, Tacos, or Chinese, it doesn't matter - I just don't want to cook!

Sunday - Spaghetti and Meatballs.  This is such a simple but good Sunday after church meal.  Salad and Garlic bread will round it out. 

Monday - Darryl has PT and doesn't get home until about 7:00.  I have a meeting at 5:30 that will go to about 7:00.  So I think I will pick up McDonald's for the boys to eat at my meeting (it will take up some time for them to eat) and Darryl and I will be on our own. 

Tuesday - Time for the Grill.  I've been wanting to grill pork chops - we love them so that's what we will do!  Mac and Cheese always goes with Pork chops along with green beans and applesauce.  I might even make my own in the crock pot!

Wednesday - Shall we grill again?  Why, yes!  Steaks!  Yum!  Baked potatoes in the crock pot, corn, and Garlic Bread

Thursday - Darryl has PT again so breakfast sounds good.  I love Amish Breakfast casserole and some muffins.  I'll make frozen waffles and sausage links for the boys since neither really gets into the casserole concept yet (Everything touches and that just isn't right HA!)

Friday - Well, tacos of course!  Yum!
