Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Picking up parents at airport over the dinner hour- Pulled pork in the crock pot, freezer mashed potatoes in the oven, can of green beans- Scott should be able to pull dinner together in 5 minutes after getting home!

Monday: Scott's out with friends. Breakfast for Dinner- Egg sandwiches or puff puff pancakes- Kids choice, fruit

Tuesday: I'm working. Scott cooks. Turkey Casserole (with leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday and Turkey from the freezer, green beans

Wednesday: Scott's Request- Two Sauce Lasagna Bowls, garlic breadsticks, salad

Thursday: Scott cooks. Pork Chops in creamy mushroom sauce, rice, peas ( I realized that I didn't have pork chops in the freezer as I first thought so this was skipped and we pulled out some chicken breasts, marinated with a mexican marinade packet that I had in the cupboard and served with cilantro rice and vegies)

Friday: Pizza Night, salad

Saturday: Drew's request- Buffalo Chicken sandwiches- sweet potato fries- salad

Jake starts Track this week- so I am sure there will be no leftovers! ( and there really wasn't much!)

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Easter Brunch at my parent's, Easter Dinner at my sis-in-law's... I am in charge of dessert for both- planning on these lovely bite size treats: White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Bites, Twix Cheesecake Bites, Cadbury Cream Cookie Cups, and Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs- Dipped in White Chocolate! I love the bite size treats- no extra dishes needed! Who wants to do more dishes after eating dinner?
Updates: Cheesecake bites rocked! and the homemade eggs where just as good as the storebought- actually better because they were prettier! Cookie cups were way too sweet- they tasted like the eggs, but just too sweet too eat a whole one- probably could try again using a mini muffin tin!
Monday: Breakfast for Dinner: Eggs, Hashbrowns, Bacon, Fruit

Tuesday: Mahi Mahi with Zesty Basil Butter, Rice, asparagus

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Lasagna (from the freezer), garlic bread,salad

Thursday:Scott cooks. Oven Baked Chili dogs, fries, fruit salad

Friday: Pizza Night, salad

Saturday: Beef Pho

wednesday: Scott "cooks" (really he just has to add the noodles). Turkey noodle soup, rolls

thursday: Scott cooks. taco salad, fruit

friday: TBD- I know Scott would love to have some chicken with boursin sauce, but I think I will be potatoed out for the week so maybe a stir fry?

saturday: friday night pizza night (scott's off on sunday for easter so I don't have to worry about leftovers for his work meal.....)
