Weekly Menu - Happy Valentine's Day Style!

I feel like this year is already flying.  It usually seems to take much longer for Valentine's Day to arrive and yet here it is.  Crazy.  I feel like I already need to start thinking about Christmas planning because it will be here before we know it HA!  Not really, but time sure is moving quickly.  We actually got snow this past weekend which was nice.  I was beginning to think we were going to move right into spring!!  I don't need what we had last winter with the bitter, bitter cold but I do enjoy some snow! I've done some searching on Pinterest (dangerous, I know HA!) I decided to look up good (looking) recipes for the different "categories" like pork, chicken, beef, etc. and try some new things.  I feel like we are in a rut!

So, here's the plan for the coming week.

Friday - It's Valentine's Day so we will have our traditional Spaghetti and Meatballs, Garlic Bread, and Salad along with Chocolate Covered Strawberries for dessert.

Saturday - Last week we had dinner at my mom's, maybe she will invite us again? LOL  For Real.  My kids say she is a better cook then I am which is just weird since she doesn't cook that often.  They don't eat her food either so I'm not quite sure what's up with that.  She has invited us over again and I'm so happy :-)

Sunday - We have a family February birthday party with Darryl's family.  I'm taking 7 layer salad, Chicken Salad Croissants and chips.  There will also be Gumbo (which I don't like HA) and stuff for regular sandwiches, which are also not my favorite so I'm making sure to take stuff I like!

Monday - Mac and Cheese and Corn Dogs - it's TKD night (Maybe this is why my kids think I can't cook  . . .)

Tuesday - I have a "Moms Night Out" dinner with our co-op so the boys are on their own.  Not really, I'll leave Taco Stuff for them :-)

Wednesday - AWANA Night!  Pizza!

Thursday - Baked Paramsan Crusted Pork Chops, Mac and Cheese, Homemade Applesauce, and Green beans
