Weekly Menu

I'm discovering that Monday Night Leftovers are a very important staple in this household.  Nate and I eat at about 4:45, before Tae Kwon Do.  Darryl and Josh eat at about 6:00, since Darryl gets home just as I'm leaving.  It's so much easier to say "there are leftovers in the fridge" then to try and have a meal ready!  This "season", Tuesdays and Thursdays are great nights for cooking a nice dinner.  We don't usually have things going on those evenings.  It's nice to actually be able to plan meals.  (Even when they don't always happen!)

Friday - Fridays are fun days with Friday School but they are also tiring.  If I don't plan dinner carefully (meaning not a lot of work!) I don't want to cook and we spend money eating out!  Tonight will actually be leftovers from this past Tuesday - Pulled Pork BBQ and Baked Potatoes (that cook in the crock pot all day!)

Saturday - Since I've been doing my grocery shopping on Saturday's recently, I also have to plan Saturday night dinner or, again, it's easy to not want to cook after shopping!  Shrimp Alfredo and garlic bread!

Sunday - I love having dinner in the oven and ready to eat after church.  The house smells yummy and having that "comfort food" meal is just such a nice thing.  So, this week, a small ham, Cheesy Potatoes (in the crock, cooking while we are at church), and green beans.

Monday - Leftovers :-)

Tuesday - I love Breakfast for dinner sometimes.  Amish Breakfast Casserole is a family favorite.  Overnight Coffee Cake, Asparagus, and Strawberries.

Wednesday - Frozen Pizza - It's AWANA Night.

Thursday - We are out on a Field Trip all day today.  I'm going to throw a pork loin in the crock pot today to cook all day while we are gone.  Mashed Potatoes, Corn and Crescent rolls will round this meal out!
