Weekly Menu - A Quiet Week Ahead

We had a great birthday weekend and then a little bit of a crazy week - well at least for dinner.  We seemed to be running a lot this week and that always impacts dinner time.  If I'm gone all day, I don't love the crock pot because things over cook but if I'm gone all day, I hate coming home to cook which means I have to prep the day before!  It's the never ending circle of .. DINNER!! :-)  Before kids, when I worked full time - sometimes 50+ hours a week, it's no wonder we ate out a lot!  After working all day, it was never fun to come home and make dinner!  Anyway, I'm getting distracted. HA!  This coming week is a very quiet, stay at home kind of week.  We will hit school hard as we start the 2nd semester and not make too many plans outside of what needs to be done at home.

Friday - It's Friday School time which means I'm usually tired when I get home!  I love things I can just pop in the oven and require no work on my part.  I'm going to put in a frozen lasagna for dinner along with garlic bread and green beans.

Saturday - The weekend is the perfect time for the crock pot since we tend to be home all day.  Slow Cooker Zuppa Tuscana is one of our favorites.  I'll make some "homemade" yeast rolls to go with it.

Sunday - Scalloped Potatoes and Ham in the Crock pot with Salad and green beans

Monday - This is leftover night since we eat in shifts.

Tuesday - Crock Pot Fajitas, Beans, and Chips and Salsa

Wednesday - AWANA night = Pizza (or chicken nuggets or whatever else is easy!)

Thursday - Homemade chicken nuggets, buttered noodles, and carrots

I'm hungry just writing this plan!
