Short and sweet this week, as we're leaving soon for the zoo (hoping and praying that the rain holds off).
Last week's meal plan was a big ol' FAIL for the most part. My husband has been on vacation, and we've been doing lots of fun family-type things, so I'm finding it nearly impossible to do anything productive -- and that includes cooking. Hopefully this week I'll do better!
Monday -- Soup or Casserole: French onion soup, roast beef panini. This was on the menu last week, but we ate leftovers instead, so we're having it this week. I really, really want to eat this meal.
Tuesday -- Pasta: BBQ shrimp and buttered noodles, salad, crusty bread. The BBQ is back, baby!
Wednesday -- Free Night:
Thursday -- Quick and Easy: Grilled cheese sandwiches, steak fries, pickles. Joe will probably request that I put ham on his sandwiches, but it'll just be straight-up American cheese for Andrew and me. (Why yes, sometimes I do like to eat like a three-year-old, why do you ask?)
Friday -- Burgers and Fries: Patty melts with special sauce, steak fries. I know, I know, buttered bread and melty processed cheese and fries two nights in a row -- but that's what the baby wants, and I must indulge him.
Saturday -- Regional or International:
Sunday -- Comfort Food: Spaghetti pie, salad
Weekend Breakfast: Banana nut pancakes and bacon
Baking: Chocolate truffle cookies. Also, pumpkin pie snickerdoodle bars. I didn't get to make these last weekend because we were really busy, so now I have to make them as soon as possible. I can't stop thinking about them. It's not really fall to me until I've cooked with pumpkin!
