Here is my menu plan for the week. We decided to go thematic and alliterative. It was fun coming up with something for every day...Thursday was a stretch, but I am looking forward to it!
Monday---Mom's treat Monday. Tex found out he will be needing surgery to remove a cyst in his jaw, so Mom took him and the other kids to IHOP for dinner. Kids eat free from 4-10! Tex had the BEST Baked Potato Soup and a Scrumptious Bacon Cheeseburger. It quite cheered him up. Our waitress was sweet, too. The kids looked at the prints of food (like cheeseburgers and syrup) on the walls and asked, "What kind of art is that?" Mom explained it was like Pop Art and we talked about Andy Warhol. See, you can even homeschool at IHOP. Isn't it amazing?
Tuesday---Taco Tuesday. By request, Mom makes our favorite tacos, served with Mexican Rice, refried beans, and plenty of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream.
Wednesday---Waffle Wednesday. Mom's special wheat waffles served with PLENTY of syrup, a cheesy omelette, and turkey bacon. Oh, and don't foget the cool, refreshing, milk. Yum.
Thursday---Thanksgiving Thursday. Mom will be getting a turkey roast (have you ever had one? It's been years for me, but we had them when I was a kid) and serving it with mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, and cranberry sauce. Fun.
Friday---Family Night Friday. I think we will order from a local place called, "Five Bucks Fresh Pizza." The $5 pizzas are just cheese, but they are very fresh, made with quality ingredients, and quite good. We will view a movie from Netflix. Not sure which one. Any suggestions?
Saturday---Spaghetti Saturday. Ragu Robusto is our current favorite sauce. Choose any of them and they are delish. Add some hamburger to the sauce, cook up some thin spaghetti, serve it with a salad and garlic bread, and you have one of our family favorite meals.
Sunday---Soup and Sandwich Sunday. Something Simple Sunday...whichever you prefer. It will be chicken and noodle soup (homemade, but frozen) and grilled cheese sandwiches, served with chunky applesauce. Only takes about ten minutes to prepare, so everyone gets a break on the Lord's day. Simple and good for your body and spirit.
