The "Dad's home and Marine's here" menu!
Can I just say for a moment that it is extremely easy to follow the menu when hubby's not here? :) His whims tend to cause changes, and since he wasn't home last week, we did exactly what Mom had planned. Woo hoo!! So this week, hubby is home from his trip, and Marine son is here for a visit as well. This means that all plans are subject to change every day, but I *need* a plan, because if I don't, default = out to eat = $$$$$$ !!!!!! I've not yet figured out my husband's love of eating out, but we do it more than usual when our big boys are in town. That said, I'm listing the plan this week for lunch & dinner, but not assigning any days, except Sunday.
Sunday~ lunch: leftover roast, mushrooms, and gravy over mashed potatoes dinner: Breakfast - eggs, bacon, waffles, toast, blueberries.
The rest of the week: ~~~LUNCHES~~~ Tacos, nachos & quesadillas BLTs & chips Sliders (from the freezer), salad Chicken tenders, twice baked potatoes, salad or broccoli 4th of July cookout at the parents' house I know there will be at least 2 days of lunches out.
~~~DINNERS~~~ Grilled steak, sliced tomatoes from our garden, corn on the cob, fried okra (fresh from the garden!), onion rings Grilled chicken, fruit salad, baked potatoes Spaghetti, bread with Italian dipping sauce, tossed salad Appetizer night Leftovers And the out to eat for dinner option. Which hubby loves when Marine son is in town.
So there ya have it. Have a happy 4th of July, and get some menu inspiration at Laura's!
