Menu Plan Monday
This week Hubby is out of town, so I am keeping it simple and letting the kids decide what they want to eat for dinner. Each child gets to choose the menu for one day. Yay!
Monday: Happy Valentine's Day! We are going to the drive-in at Sonic for supper and using coupons from Daddy. It's going to be fun (and cheap!). Maybe there will be ice cream for dessert...
Tuesday: Ladybug requests tomato soup and grilled cheese for supper tonight. One of my favorites. I bought oatmeal bread on sale from the bread store and also have some Havarti cheese to add to the usual American cheese to fancy-up the sandwiches. Yum.
Wednesday: Firefly requests spaghetti with meatballs and cheesy bread for supper. We will use our favorite Ragu Robusto Parmesean and Romano sauce, add frozen meatballs, and use a box of Cheesy Texas Toast I got on sale last week to keep it simple.
Thursday: Cowboy's day to choose...he chooses Velveeta Shells and Cheese with fish sticks. It doesn't get a whole lot simpler than that. We will have applesauce on the side.
Friday: Pizza Night. We will be ordering the Big Dipper pizza with ham and watching a Debbie Reynold's movie called My Six Loves (she takes in six orphans and meets a compassionate pastor, played by Cliff Robertson) on Netflix.
Saturday: Tex chooses something a bit more labor intensive, but he is worth it. He would like chicken enchilladas and Spanish rice for supper, please...with plenty of salsa and sour cream on the side.
Sunday: Daddy gets home late tonight. Yay!! I am thinking that after a week of not-so-healthy (but easy) foods, I will fix Cobb salads for dinner. The kids love their veggies...just don't forget to add lots of Kraft Three Cheese Ranch!
Have a delicious week.
