Menu Monday

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

B- Pancakes
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!
