Weekly Menu

So, I took a few weeks off from the blog.  Our school program really was eating up all of my time and, well, I just haven't been creative in any form or fashion.  I'm hoping to get back into it even if just a few days a week.  It's hard to believe it is already the end of October - we wrapped up a birthday and have holidays and another birthday to look forward to in the next two months.  I've been without a lot of inspiration lately for cooking, again driven by school eating up most of the minutes of my day, but I'm trying to get that inspiration back.  We are in a rut for lunches partly because my boys have specific foods they love but I've noticed that we are eating those for both lunch and dinner throughout the week so it is time to get creative again and encourage my kids - one picky eater and one not picky eater - to try new foods.  I picked out some recipes from my "recipes I've made and would make again" folder in Pinterest so lets see if they are as good the second time around!

Saturday - Today is "Celebrate Josh" day for his birthday.  He gets to pick our resturant for dinner.  I'm expecting Smashburger, Pizza Ranch, or Jets Pizza ;-)

Sunday - I have a Choir Concert day so dinner is easy for Darryl - Mac and Cheese, Chips and Sandwiches

Monday - The boys have gymnastics so dinner is later than normal and also needs to be ready to go on the table when we walk back in the door.  Sunday Swiss Steak will be ready to come out of the oven!  Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, Corn and Rolls!

Tuesday - Amish Baked Chicken, Amish Noodles and Beans

Wednesday - Chicken Carbonara, Salad, and Garlic Bread

Thursday - Pork Chops, Mac and Cheese, Applesauce and Biscuits

Friday - Fish Tacos, Chips and salsa, Rice and beans
