We're back from our trip and ready to jump into our school year. I don't know about the weather where you are, but here it is HOT! so I am trying to work in a few cold items, crock pot recipes, and microwavables to avoid using the oven.
Here is my menu plan for dinners for the week:
Monday: Nachos (ie. chips covered in cheesy chili sauce with tomatoes, lettuce, and sour cream...this is a favorite and one they have been asking for). The kids can have pudding for dessert as a treat.
Tuesday: Spaghetti, garlic bread, and side salad (using Ragu Robusto Parmesean and Romano, yum!)
Wednesday: Beef Pull-apart Sandwiches made in the crockpot (simmer beef roast in french onion soup all day served on hearty sub buns) with au jus and chips and carrot/celery sticks on the side.
Thursday: Chicken Lasagna (I am cheating and using a microwavable Stouffer's...they are very good) with italian seasoned corn and a side of peaches.
Friday: Pizza and a movie night! Last week we had pizza night at my brother's house and bought two medium two topping pizzas from Dominos for $5.99 each...I think we will do the same this week. Tex ordered the pizzas online and came up with a pizza with white sauce, ham, and pineapple (ie. Hawaiian pizza) that everyone loved. I think we will get two of those this week.
Saturday: Chicken salad with apples and walnuts served beside asian inspired salad (romaine topped with mandarin oranges, nuts, and orange-sesame-ginger dressing) with a yogurt parfait on the side.
Sunday: We will get dad on the grill with burgers and hot dogs, potato packets, and corn on the cob. We will eat one of our watermelons for dessert!
