Isn't the new "fall banner" from Organized Junkie just too cute???! It makes me feel autumnal... even though here, we don't really get an official SEASON of fall... it's more like a few days of cooler temps and then more HOT, and then BOOM! It's winter. Anyway, it's time to plan another menu, so here goes.
Sunday~ another roast in the crock pot, with pearl onions and mushrooms, served over mashed potatoes, and a green salad on the side.
Monday~ I have learned that Mondays require the crock pot. Or else my husband will look at me and say, "You're too tired to cook" (which is true) and then "Let's go out to dinner" (and I cave). So this Monday, it's Brown Sugar Chicken, which is like a teriyaki style chicken. We'll have rice and steamed broccoli to go with.
Tuesday~ Pasta carbonara, tossed salad, breadsticks (my recipe is loosely based on Robin Miller's, but I don't make it as saucy, and I usually add a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese because I love it!)
Wednesday~ Soup & sandwiches (we're having those 'fake fall' temperatures that make me think I might actually see some changing leaves...)
Thursday~ Pizza and cheese sticks from the freezer.
Friday~ supposed to be a jewelry party originally planned for August, but we never made it. So if no one gets sick and the river don't rise... we'll have a houseful of ladies eating lady-style finger foods and the boys will probably run away and fend for themselves. With burgers & fries or something.
Saturday~ probably either leftovers or something on the grill.
