Menus and Baseball... oh how I love thee!

Well, Opening Day for our baseball season was Saturday. This means almost-daily practice and at least 2 games (sometimes 3) every week.

Here's our plan:
Sunday~ Spaghetti and french bread, at hubby's request
Monday~ BBQ pork sandwiches which did not get eaten last Wednesday (we had breakfast instead). Ball practice @ 5pm. My new nephew makes his entrance today!!!
Tuesday~ Chicken w/ mushroom gravy, egg noodles, broccoli w/ cheese sauce. Game @ 5:30pm.
Wednesday~ Frozen lasagna, tossed salad, rolls. No baseball.
Thursday~ Leftovers. Game @ 5:30pm.
Friday~ WHEW.... Spring Break begins. OUT TO EAT. No practice scheduled, but we'll probably have it...
Saturday~ something on the grill if the weather is nice.

What's on your plan?

March Menu... 3rd time's a charm.

Last week was considerably better as far as following the menu.
It was considerably wackier as far as work goes.
Which makes it all the more important to have a plan to follow.

We ate pretty much everything that was scheduled, just swapped a couple of nights around.
This week?
Another insanely busy week... but having a plan does help. So here it is.

Monday~ Leftovers (hubby has class and son #3 has ball practice)
Tuesday~ Girls' Night Out; Boys will Fend For Themselves. (My sister is pregnant with nephew #2, and is due any day. So we are having a 'last hurrah' before he comes.)
Wednesday~ BBQ Pork Sandwiches, twice-baked potatoes, and some sort of chocolatey-minty dessert thing.
Thursday~ Out to eat at Chick-fil-A. Son #3 has ball practice; I have Choral district festival all day, and Marine Son #1 will be coming in from out of town. I cannot think about cooking.
Friday~ Breakfast or pizza.
Saturday~ OPENING DAY at the ball park... ball park junkish food all day.... it only happens once a year. (That's what I tell myself...)

March Menu, Take Two

Well, last week's menu....did not happen so much. I mean, we ate leftovers on Monday and spaghetti & meatballs on Tuesday as planned, but after that, things pretty much went downhill.

Hubby has been sick... for about two months, with a lingering case of bronchitis which doesn't seem to want to go away. So he has not had much of an appetite.

Baseball practice. Enough said. No further explanation necessary.

So, here's hoping that this week will work better. The kids have standardized testing all week long, so we'll be light on practices and heavy on routine so that our guy can be at his best.

Sunday~ Leftover Marinated Flank Steak, rice, salad
Monday~ Teriyaki chicken (very similar to this), leftover rice, broccoli, crescent rolls
Tuesday~ Pasta fagioli in the crock pot, homemade rolls (it's supposed to rain so this should be a good end to the day)
Wednesday~ Pancakes & bacon (didn't get to this last week)
Thursday~ Tacos
Friday~ Mac'n'cheese (loosely based on this recipe, but I add bacon), salad
Saturday~ TBA
