Back in the Saddle! Menu

We left to go out of town for a bowling tournament for ds#3 so I didn't plan any kind of menu until after we got back. Last week after we got home, we did have Pesto Penne Pasta and french bread (we never got to it the week it was planned), Spaghetti (always a good comfort meal), and Beef tenderloin, stuffed mushrooms, mashed potatoes & tossed salad. All were delish after eating on-the-road food for six days.

This week, we are settling back down into a normal routine, so here's the plan:
Sunday~ leftover tenderloin & mashed potatoes
Monday~ Sticky chicken, roasted potatoes (from our garden!), salad, cornbread
Tuesday~ BBQ pork (from the freezer) on buns, chips, veggies & dip
Wednesday~ Appetizer night!
Thursday~ Taco salad
Friday~ Frozen pizza
Saturday~ TBA

The We-Have-Survived-the-School-Year-Week-One Menu

Last week went essentially according to plan, except we didn't have Bourbon chicken (we'll have it this week) and we had the same dinner two nights in a row at hubby's request: Citrus Basil chicken, fresh corn on the cob, and new potatoes from our garden. That is a big deal, as he does not ever ask for leftovers!!!

We are going out of town at the end of the week, so I'm only planning through Thursday.

Sunday~ Bourbon chicken & rice
Monday~ Rachael Ray's Texas Chili Cheese Fries (I actually have some leftover taco meat that I will 'doll' up and then add the cheese, but this recipe is the inspiration)
Tuesday~ Club sandwiches, pita chips & hummus (this is the kind my hubby likes, but we're experimenting with several flavors right now)
Wednesday~ Chicken Pesto Pasta (I use milk instead of cream, and make pesto with the abundance of basil in our garden!)
Thursday~ Out to dinner with my dad and my sister to celebrate Father's Day with him
Friday~ traveling...
Saturday~ there...

June is bustin' out all over!!!

Last week, I did not post a thing.
It was the last week with students at school, and even crazier than the week before.
We did eat... steaks on the grill on Monday, Aussie chicken on Tuesday, sandwiches on Wednesday, leftovers on Thursday & Friday, and burgers & hotdogs on the grill for Saturday.

So this week, we have a couple of days of post-school duties, then hubby has a workshop. I'll still have some meetings, but our official school year will be over. It isn't really like work when the kids aren't there, so this will be a very relaxing week.

Sunday~ Leftovers from the grill, baked beans, stuffed mushrooms, and chips. Team party at our local minor league baseball park this evening.
Monday~ FFYS (Fend For YourSelf). Mom has a p.m. meeting with other choral directors.
Tuesday~ Bourbon chicken (which has no bourbon), rice, salad, Parmesan Thyme rolls
Wednesday~ Pork BBQ sandwiches (cook pork in crock pot), pasta salad
Thursday~ Tacos & burritos, refried beans
Friday~ our 16th wedding anniversary. No plans - Hubs is supposed to be in a workshop all week, so we may stay in.
Saturday~ NO PLANS because I don't have to plan... I can wing it if I want because I'm OUT OF SCHOOL!!! :)
