Menu planning and grocery shopping are going way to well lately so I'm excepting to get bored with it all soon HA! That's what usually happens and then I change things up for a bit. I figure that summer is coming an that always changes things so maybe I can hold out and keep things this way for a bit.
Here's the plan for the coming week:
Friday - My mom is here :-) So she and the boys are going to have a date and Darryl and I are meeting for a dinner date.
Saturday - I'm going scrapbooking for the day. My mom will be here and she is making Homemade Bean Soup - something she and Darryl both like but I do not!!
Sunday - It's Superbowl! We are getting treated to lunch by my mom - which is so nice because otherwise I feel like I cook all day on Superbowl Sunday. Instead, we can enjoy a nice easy lunch and then come home and enjoy our Superbowl food around dinner time. The plan is to have Chili for Chili Dogs and Sloppy Joes - which can be eaten on its own or on a hot dog instead. I have a couple new recipes I want to try - one is for a Taco Pizza - it's the same concept as a Veggie Pizza but with taco meat instead. Also a hot broccoli cheese dip. The other things will be cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, fruit and dip and then Peanut Butter Goodies and Floats for Dessert. It sounds like a lot more than it is PLUS I'm planning leftovers for dinner on Monday. (And the Chili was for dinner on Thursday so it is actually already leftovers!
Now, for the rest of the week I have an "either/or" plan and it goes like this:
On Monday, we'll either have Leftovers or Quiche
On Tuesday we'll either have Quiche or Pork Chops and Fried Rice
On Wednesday - the boys and I eat out before AWANA
On Thursday, we'll have either Pork Chops and Rice, Leftovers, OR Meatball Soup and Bread
Anytime we have a "big" event (Like Superbowl) I try to shop the Fridge/Freezer for the rest of the week and I have 95% of the items needed to make any of my either/or meals.
Also, I find it hard to believe that January flew by. Maybe it was the warm weather followed by dark, rainy days . . .but here it is the beginning of February already.
