Weekly Menu - The One I haven't Planned

I'm. tired. of. cooking.  Uuuugggg.  I'm tired of chicken, food that doesn't taste good, and cleaning up after dinner.  For real.  With that said, we are not eating out - we are eating at home and I'm still cooking, still cleaning, and we are not starving HA!! 

One of my goals this year is to get Nathan to try one food each month. Just one.  He has a very, very limited number of items he will actually eat but he refuses to try anything.  Well, month one was a success!  He has a game on his Ipad where he "makes" food and one of those recipes was Homemade Mac and Cheese.  He begged me to make it, so we did.  Too his credit, he tried it.  At about a 1/4 of cup of it and even said he kinda liked it but . .. then he said it made his stomach hurt HA!  He has a pretty sensitive stomach so I'm thinking it might have been too rich for his little tummy BUT he tried it!!!  Whoo whoo!! 

We tried several new recipes this week and two of them were a huge success - I'll share the success' (and failures) in the coming weeks.  But now, it's time to think about this coming week.  This past week I cleaned out my recipe book - took out all of the recipes that I've made once and will never make again.  I only want the stuff we love in that book - and stuff I'll actually cook!!

So . . here's the plan:

Saturday - Amish Chicken, Buttered Noodles, and Green Beans

Sunday - Roast, Carrots, Potatoes, and Rolls - a classic Sunday Dinner

Monday - Stuffed Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, and Biscuits

Tuesday -Tacos - we haven't had them in awhile

Wednesday - Sausage and Egg McMuffins (homemade), Waffles, and Hashbrowns

Thursday - Double Orange Crunch Chicken, Fried Rice, and Crescents

Friday - I'm heading to Linden to attend a Ladies conference on Saturday so the boys and I will grab something on our way out of town.
