Weekly Menu

Darryl and I had an enjoyable week as the kids were with my mom.  As is usually the case, we enjoyed some eating out.  We met in town on Tuesday and use a gift card for a nice dinner at Olive Garden; on Wednesday we met my father-in-law for dinner and he treated (a nice surprise!).  Thursday, we actually cooked at home and grilled some steaks.  We ended the week on Friday with dinner out again.  I've said it before and will say it again, if it was just the two of us, we would eat out 5 nights out of 7.  :-)  

Now, though, the holidays are over, the kids are back home and its time to actually cook again.  So, here's the plan for the coming week.  

Friday -One last night without the kids so we are eating out!

Saturday - Honey Glazed Chicken and Rice

Sunday - Meatball Stew, salad, and bread.  (I know this seems so winter but it can be made in the crock pot and will be ready after church!)  .

Monday - Pulled Pork BBQ and Spaghetti salad

Tuesday - Pancakes with blueberry syrup, Fried Eggs, bacon and Sausage

Wednesday - Darryl usually eats in town since he has practice.  Dinner is kid friendly and easy.  Shrimp Scampi for me (it comes out of a box HA!) and Spaghetti for the boys.

Thursday - Veggie Night - Fried Zucchini, Sweet Corn, Slow Cooker Green Beans, Cucumbers.  I will probably cook up a ham slice too just because we tend to like meat with dinner :-)
