Weekly Menu - The One with Easter and No Kids

I feel like this week and just flown by and I'm ont sure what we ate.  This week we had sick people in the house.  Both Darryl and Nate got hit with the cough, cold thing going around and even all of the sliced up onions all around the house didn't clear it up as fast as we'd like but I think they are both finally on the mend. 

I still have been going to the store on Tuesday but this next week should help get things back on track.  Here's the plan for the coming week!

Saturday - Darryl's working today since he missed a few days this past week due to illness.  The boys and I are going to hit up a couple of Easter Egg Hunts (including one with lunch!) and then I'll be cooking food up for Sunday so I plan on having Darryl bring something home or we'll meet him in town for something.

Sunday - Easter!  A few years ago I said I would never cook on Easter Sunday again because I literally spent the entire day in the kitchen.  Plus, Easter Sunday mornings are long between breakfast at church, Darryl and I both involved in the service and a longer service than normal.  (Sometimes I feel like we lose what Easter really is about and instead are just busy!) but, I decided to try it again.  Everything will be made and just need to be cooked.  So, Ham, Cheesy Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Broccoli Salad, Jell-O Salad, and Rolls.  I figured that the potatoes and beans can cook while the boys open their Easter Baskets. 

Monday - The Kids are gone for a visit to Papa and Nana's.  Darryl and I can eat at Applebee's for $15.00 (thanks to half price burgers) so that's what we do!!!

Tuesday - Either Darryl will bring something home or we'll eat out. 

Wednesday - Darryl has rejoined the music group he played in for years (but had to take time off due to his back) so I'm thinking about meeting him in town for dinner. 

Thursday - Last night without kids so of course I'm not cooking HA!

Friday - The kids come home today so I'm going to plan Tacos - easy peasy.
