April Menu, week three

The weeks are speeding by. Last week's menu plan was pretty much a bust... crazy, unexpected events threw us all out of whack. Here's to getting back on track this week!

Sunday~ Grilled steak, chicken, & sausage (leftovers will be used in lunches this week), baked potatoes, leftover Swiss Beans

Monday~ Pasta toss with salad. Baseball game @ 7:30p.m.

Tuesday~ Sandwiches & chips... simple but filling.

Wednesday~ Weekly breakfast for dinner.

Thursday~ Tacos (meat is in the freezer)

Friday~ Snack before ballgame @ 5:30p.m. Probably out to eat at Chick-fil-A when the game is over.

Saturday~ TBA

April Menu, week two

We went back to work (and to school) this week after a marvelous spring break. None of us was ready to go, but no one asked us if we were ready!!

So our menu went mostly according to plan, except that on Wednesday, hubby decided we should go out to eat instead of eat at home. It turned out to be a good move, because some unexpected situations arose at work that required me to stay late.

Our plan for this week:
Sunday~ Spaghetti, sauteed mushrooms, garlic bread
Monday~ Pancakes, bacon, fresh strawberries (yum!!). I have a rehearsal and ds#3 has batting practice, so we'll eat afterward.
Tuesday~ Leftover burgers & dogs from the weekend cookout, chips, homemade mac'n'cheese. I have a concert and ds#3 has a game, so everyone will eat when they can. (We were given a huge bag of hamburger patties and an enormous bag of hotdogs - with all the buns to match - after the cookout! That means we've got burgers for an impromptu gathering anytime!)
Wednesday~ Tacos, 'macho' nachos
Thursday~ Chef salads, baked potatoes
Friday~ Sandwiches & chips before the game.
Saturday~ something on the grill....

Share what's cookin' in your kitchen at Laura's!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeere's April!

We have been on Spring Break this past week.
It has been WONDERFUL.
I got to spend lots of time with my guys, and with the newest addition to our extended family, my nephew, Nathan. Who, incidentally, is totally a doll.
And I am 100% objective on this.
I was also able to attend a coupon workshop by The Coupon Chick, which was fantastically informative!

Now we are back to the grind, back to ball practice & games, with the long push until June! Here's the plan for this week:

Monday~ Roast in the crockpot with mushrooms, mashed potatoes, leftover Swiss Beans (from Easter Sunday), homemade rolls. Baseball practice @ 5pm.
Tuesday~ Frozen lasagna, tossed salad, garlic bread. Baseball game @ 7:30pm.
Wednesday~ Breakfast for Dinner
Thursday~ Having a bunch of fellow choral directors over for a potluck dinner. Baseball game @ 5:30pm.
Friday~ Sandwiches & chips. Baseball game @ 7:30pm.
Saturday~ Hosting a cookout for our school's faculty & staff. Hubby will be the grillmaster!
