Menu Plan Monday

Whew! Last week was a busy one, but we had so much fun!! I think this week has got to be a little quieter though--I'm behind on everything, it seems.

Last week's menu went great, especially those nights out:) Mom took us to several of our favorite places: Krispy Kreme, Cracker Barrel, Osaka's (a Japanese steakhouse) and Ricatoni's (a wonderful local Italian place). We enjoyed make-your-own-pizza night again and the white chili was a hit (as was the pumpkin carving party). Halloween day was so busy that we ended up grabbing a quick bite of fast food before trick-or-treating. That was certainly not my favorite dinner, but I had to get some "real" food in the kiddos before they started stuffing in the candy!

Here's this week's line-up:

Monday: Chicken Minestrone Soup (thanks, Betsy!)
Tuesday: grilled steaks & pork chops, baked potatoes (a sweet one for me!), veggie
Wednesday: black-eyed peas & ham, macaroni & cheese*, veggie
Thursday: small group night, Mexican theme--I'm making a Mexican Lasagna* (yum!)
Friday: steak w/caramelized onions, twice baked potatoes*, salad
Saturday: leftovers--if there are any, if not, then it's spaghetti & meatballs
Sunday: roast w/carrots & potatoes* (in the crock pot)
*These are recipes that I plan to share throughout the week.

Looks yummy, and I'm looking forward to a couple of the recipes. I promise I'll try not to be a pain in the neck about them. :)

Have a great week, Lora!

Oh mac and cheese! Yum. I haven't found cheddar in Germany that really tastes like what I'm used to, so no mac and cheese at our house lately. :( I can't wait to see your recipe for it later, cheddar or no cheddar!
