Weekly Menu

We are back to the normal grind this coming week.  So there isn't anything special and we are just enjoying the slow arrival of spring.  We had originally planned to head to my mom's for the weekend and the boys planned to stay a few extra days but then . . .Influenza A hit our house :-(  Poor little Nate got hit hard on Thursday night; when he spiked a fever and was lethargic I knew I needed to run him to the clinic to find out.  I'm glad I did!  Needless to say, our plans changed and we will be hanging out at home doing not much of anything!  

Friday - Darryl's going to bring home some pizza (we were supposed to eat pizza at my mom's!)  

Since our plans are just changing - I have not planned meals for Saturday-Wednesday yet.  I know, how disappointing HA! I won't actually go to the store until Saturday so I'll spend time today coming up with a simple menu and grocery list.  

Thursday - the kids will be at my moms so Darryl and I will totally eat out.  :-) 

For awhile I've thought about doing a recap of the menu from the week before for no other reason then for my own benefit so if you don't care - just stop reading now HA!  If you want to see how well I stuck to the plan read on!  I may not do this every week but at least for this week it's fun! 

Friday - Breakfast!  English Muffins, Eggs, Hashbrowns, Sausage and bacon.  Yum! Even though we had an unexpected dog adoption on this night; I still managed to cook dinner as planned.  

Saturday - If the weather cooperates, we will have Hamburgs on the grill (to celebrate Spring!), and Fries. The weather did not cooperate which was perfectly fine because - we had ICE CREAM for dinner HA!  Mooville had all you could eat Sundays . .. we went at 4:00 and by the time we were done, we were all stuffed so we did not eat dinner. 

Sunday - Today is a banquet at church.  We are supposed to bring a main dish and then either a side dish or dessert.  So, truth be told, I don't like taking food to things - it stresses me out.  So, last year I figured out a way to not stress - I pick up fried chicken from Meijer for my main dish and a couple packages of rolls :-)  And do you know what?  I'm not the only one that does that HA! I took chicken and cookies for the potluck.  Then Darryl picked up a Little Ceasers Pizza for dinner.  

Monday - Ham Steaks and Soup with yeast rolls Nope!  I had actually bought chicken corden blue's from the meat department at Meijer for Saturday night but we didn't use them so we had those tonight along with Amish noodles.  

Tuesday - Either chicken on the grill or Amish baked chicken, Buttered Noodles, and carrots Today was our sponsor day (a fundraiser) at a local place called Mooville.  To help earn money, I bought a Lasagna from the store to have for dinner.  We had garlic bread and salad with it too. 

Wednesday - If Darryl doesn't have practice I think we will go to Pizza Hut for a mid-week spring break treat; if he does have practice, the boys and I will have Tacos Tonight we ate out like planned but Darryl picked the KFC buffet instead of pizza hut.  

Thursday - Tonight will be whatever we didn't do on Wednesday!  Either Pizza Hut or Tacos :-) And tonight was really tacos!
