Last week's menu plan would be classified as a FAIL.
So here's hoping that this week is better!
A dear family welcomed a new baby on Wednesday, so we will be taking them dinner this week, and ds#3 will hang out with their oldest son too.
Kids are officially out of school - teachers have a few days to wrap up - so it's time to deploy all the creative juices to keep the boy occupied. I never had this issue with his older brothers, because there were two of them, and lots of kids in the neighborhood. Now, not so many kids around, and ds#3 is the only one at home. So, get BUSY, Mom!
I'll spend more time actually planning once I'm done with work, because if I don't have a lunchtime plan, we always spend more $$$.
Sunday~ homemade sub sandwiches for lunch; Bourbon chicken (with no bourbon) with rice and green beans for dinner
Monday~ Chef salads
Tuesday~ Roast in crockpot, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad
Taking dinner to our friends tonight: beef tenderloin, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad, crescent rolls. Cookies for dessert. :)
Wednesday~ ds#3 is spending the night with a friend, so hubs & I may have a date. Or a quiet evening in.
Thursday~ Steaks on the grill, baked potatoes, salad. Yum!
Friday~ Spaghetti, our favorite standby.
Saturday~ TBA...maybe something yummy from the Farmer's Market.
