Weekly Menu

Update:  I just clicked over to the link on my sidebar for Clam Chowder on Full Bellies Make Happy Kids and am changing Tuesday's menu.  Cannot wait to try this!

I wanted to join Sandra's Happy Homemaker Monday carnival, but did not have time to type it all up.  Please join her for a lot more fun than you will have here.  ;  )

Hurrah, hurrah, it's an easy week.  Two are at camp, one is working two nights this week and will eat there, and we are assigned to clean our church this week, so one night (probably Saturday) will be pizza. I would like to take this opportunity to use stuff I already have, so I will be buying some dairy products, breads, and produce, but not much else...I hope.

Monday Hot dogs, leftover potato salad and green salad, canned baked beans.  

Let me talk to you about baked beans for a minute.  I am from the northeast.  Born, raised, growing old.  I have made baked beans from scratch, and they are very good, but so are the canned varieties.  I feel the same way about pumpkin pie.  I haven't eaten a pumpkin pie that did not taste good, so sometimes I will make one from scratch, and most times not.  Also I make a very good doctored version of canned baked beans with maple syrup.  Yum.  We won't talk about the fact that I have tons of dried small white beans and a working slow cooker, and therefore every reason to make my own baked beans.  Shhh.

Tuesday Tuna Steaks, leftover rice, peas and carrots.

Wednesday Hmmm, chicken quesadillas, corn,  more leftover rice if I'm lucky

Let's talk about the word quesadillas, which blogger does not recognize.  These are its spell check options:  cedillas, Sadella's, Quintilla's, Gusella's.  Really???  You don't have quesadilla, but you have those words?  What really makes me laugh is that the last three options have a red line under them as I write this, blogger's spell check does not even recognize its own suggestions?

Moving on,

Thursday Grilled pork chops, rice-a-roni (leave me alone), green beans

Friday Fish fillets, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots

Saturday pizza!

Sunday chicken pot pies, pizza rolls (Don't judge, it will be just me and possibly my oldest son - everyone else will be away.  If it is just me I will only have a pot pie, promise.) and carrot sticks.

  1. Easy weeks for cooking are a blessing sometimes! Sit back relax and enjoy the vacation without having to plan big family type meals. Lately our family has been forced into some very limited cooking because of the heat wave we have been having in the midwest.. not a good idea to turn on the oven when its 110 degrees heat index.
