I’m doing it! My friends Hayley and Barbie had inspired me to get organized in the kitchen and get planning with my meals for the week. Since I shop at the base commissary, which is closed on Monday, I do my shopping on Tuesday. So my ‘week’ is a bit off with Monday being the last meal I plan for. But I’ll go with the flow and my menu plan will still read like everyone else’s 😉
MONDAY: White Chicken Chili (an absolute favorite around here) served with sour cream, scallions and tons of chips!
TUESDAY: Sausage and Rigatoni (in the crockpot), foccacia (I fix the dough in the bread maker and bake the bread in the oven), and butter-lettuce salad
WEDNESDAY: BBQ Pork Chops (just like my momma used to fix), red potatoes and green beans
THURSDAY: Beef Daube Provencal (a la Deb over at Sophie’s World ~ I told you I was going to try it, Deb!) and french bread (wheat since my sweetie is into unbleached flour ;))
FRIDAY: Subs! Family fun night means it has to be fun for mom, too 🙂 We use paper plates, drink Coke and NO manners are allowed at our table!
SUNDAY: Ranch dipped Chicken, broccoli and cornbread
There it is! Since we eat as a family at least 6 nights a week, momma’s gotta have something to put on the table! And like Barbie, I have a tough time cooking to please the whole crew. The girls aren’t the picky ones, it’s the boys that make a fuss over tiny bits of onion and/or tomato… we’ll see how they like the new recipes I’m trying this week!
