So, last week went very well....I am lovin' this menu planning! This week I did another little inventory of the kitchen to decide what we're having this week. I always find such good stuff that I forgot that I bought! Besides what I've planned here for us, I've also got a couple of extra meals to plan out for some friends who've recently had babies. I remember what a blessing it was for us when our children were born to have friends bring us meals during those first weeks, so I always try to do that for others.
Monday: Vince is taking me out--to bribe me to be in one of his videos*
Tuesday: chicken fried rice, eggrolls, teryaki noodles, stir-fry veggies
Wednesday: fellowship meal at church
Thursday: 3-cheese tortellini w/marinara sauce, salad, garlic bread
Friday: grilled salmon, mashed potatoes, veggie side dish
All-in-all a delicious week! I have some good leftovers saved up for lunches, too. The weekend will be busy and fun. My parents, sister and a friend are coming for Easter and my daughter's birthday. So there will be lots of eating involved. I have a *spectacular* birthday cake planned for the Princess. More details to follow soon concerning that. Right after Easter, Vince's parents are coming for a visit. It's their first time here, so we're planning to have some of the good local specialites (aka: barbeque chicken w/white sauce).

*Just a note: My husband is a student minister and LOVES to make videos. He does lots of youth-related ones, but lately he's also been having fun entering some of the contests that YouTube offers. So far he's won the grand prize for a Nesquik video, along with being a finalist with LG, Samsung, and Home Depot to name a few. He's very talented at what he does and he has some crazy fun with it--so be prepared if you click over to view some:)
