Trying to stay on Menu. Last week we ate a lot of turkey. I was recovering from a weird cold. I baked a turkey and it fed them all for several days. This next week, everyone is required to make one meal a week to help out. More if they would like. We will see how this goes. So if there is a name next to a menu item, that is who is cooking that meal.
B- Cherry Crescent rolls
L - Sandwiches/soup
D- Chicago Deep dish pizza and salad
B - Breakfast out - Fasting blood work is being done. So going to Bob Evans afterward
L - Salmon cakes and rice
D - Fried Japanese Noodles - (Caty)
B - Waffle sandwiches
L - Cheeseburger macaroni soup - (Joey)
D - Snacks - Pizza Bagels
B - Caramel pecan rolls
L - Potato/cauliflower soup
D - Hot chicken sandwiches w/ sweet potato fries (Joey)
B - Pumpkin muffins and fruit
L - Noodle soup w/ grilled cheese
D - Butter chicken with rice
L- Chicken salad
D- Chicken parmesan w/ noodles & salad (Brayden)
B- Biscuits and gravy
L- Big Mac Salads
D- Taco rice bowls w/ side of corn & beans (Lydia)
Why I plan.....
Who isn't busy?!?! Kids schedules, schoolwork, work, WOW!! Life just does not stop!
When I create a menu, I include our schedule on it also. In fact, I type the schedule into the table that I created first. Then I know what is going on that day, and I can plan crockpot meals or even know if I need to have a make-ahead meal ready. I do not use a fancy downloadable calendar, I simply use Microsoft Word. I have a table I created on there. At the bottom, I keep a running list of menu items that either I want them to try or food that is loved by all.
Hope everyone has a great week!! See everyone next Monday!
