Monday and menus

I am still trying to figure out where the week has gone! I think I must have slept through it.

The weekend was hectic to say the least. D went with Alex to the scout camporee at Lake Martin. that left me home *alone* with five children. As if that wasn't enough, we had to finish the school project from H-E- double hockey sticks. It was a year long project and they had checks throughout the year to make sure they weren't falling behind...but this project was far too big for fourth graders and parents were *expected* to help. Sure, with all my spare time, I have time to do my kids' homework. Fortunately, it did get done and it was 99 percent her work. Unfortunately, most of the other kids in her class had parents that probably did 75 percent of the work. I told her to be very proud of the C she's probably going to get because it's hers...and that many of the kids who get As...well, those are the parents' As.

Last night I attempted a good Sunday night dinner. And, I must say, it was delicious once I finally got it done. We had crispy curried fried chicken and it was wonderful!

This week's dinner menu is coming primarily from the latest issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. We cook so much from her recipes, i might as well start a blog reviewing the recipes LOL

We still have a lot of leftovers in the freezer after friends bringing food over! Amy brought us a huge tray of pulled pork we're trying to use up and Lynn was gracious enough to bring over parts of her cow. We don't eat beef unless it's on sale cheap, so having freshly butchered cow is a rare treat indeed!

Monday...Pork Lo Mein (leftover pulled pork, noodles, soy sauce, veggies)
Tuesday...sloppy joes, oven fries
Wednesday...Mexican Chicken rice bowls...taco seasoning on chicken, served over rice
Saturday...Biscuit Crusted egg and sausage pie (modifying recipe and will post the final results)
Sunday...Grilled round steak with peppers, potatoes and onions

  1. I'm inspired by your menu plan. I always intended to start that when I started staying home with Eli, but so far I have hardly done anything productive at all. I admire you and your will to get things done! It is all I can do to not just die of exhaustion so far.


Thanks and have a great day!
