Menu Plan Monday: August 8th


We are starting the week out hoping that Chicos appointment goes better than the last one.  I promise to explain what exactly is going on with him at some point this week. Im still not quite ready to process it myself. If you have some prayers, we would appreciate them.

The weekend was great though!  My sister and her fiance stayed over on Friday. I celebrated my birthday by cooking and eating and playing cards till the wee hours of the morning. Woke up Saturday to delicious blueberry pancakes.  The boys spent the night at Grandmas and we went crazy and did grocery shopping a day early. Then we got sushi for David, sashimi for me and went home and watched TV until our eyes wouldn't stay open any longer. Wild, I know! I guess I really am getting older.

So my menu was done early though. I asked for suggestions but no one had any, so I just picked the first few recipes that came to mind. Of course afterwards David pointed out that 3 our of 5 recipes were his least favorite meals. Sorry Honey! ;You should have given me some suggestions then. I kid, he might grumble a bit, but he eats everything I put on his plate without a big fuss. There was that one time I made a "cowboy casserole" He told me it was toddler food and to never make that again! So its going to be a pretty chill week in the kitchen. Monday and Tuesday are big dishes so there are always plenty of leftovers. Thursday and Friday are just pure comfort food. I have not made a roast in forever. Mostly because I love them in the crockpot and if you know David, you know he despises all things cooked in a crock. Hes lucky I love him as much as I do. Life is just easier with a slow cooker. 

Here is this weeks menu.

Monday:  Mushroom Chicken

Tuesday:  Southwest Wraps

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Oven Fried Pork Chops

Friday:  Mississippi Roast

Whats one of your comfort foods?   Mushroom Chicken would be one for me. Probably because I have been making it since I was in highschool. And because its one of the few meals we have white rice with. Another would be the Hamburger Macaroni I posted yesterday. Another long time love of mine. And now my stomach is growling. Ugh! Is it dinner time yet?
