At least I'm not missing out too much on getting yard work done today as it's raining out, so I am not too motivated to go out and get my yard tools wet chopping up bushes. The way this is going, I think I might try really hard to get up a couple of hours before the kids (5:00 am or so) every day during summer break and just go and hit the yard for at least an hour since my husband will be home sleeping (theoretically) and I won't have to worry about the kids too much and since we have 24 hours of daylight coming up really soon here I will be able to get a lot done if I can do it. IF being the operative word with my son's sleep habits, but it's definitely worth a shot.
When it comes to the menu plan this week...the only thing that shouted out to me when I was looking at recipes online this week was salads and sweets *laugh*. I am watching my lettuce in the garden like a hawk and have been eating salads on and off for lunch, so I'm THINKING I might need some nutrients from those items. I haven't even made a starch to go with dinner the last few nights (much to my daughter's ire) as I really just didn't want to eat one.
So, here we go. The menu plan for this week!
Menu Plan for Week of 5/16/16
Monday: Fried chicken, coleslaw (this was WAY too sweet. My husband didn't even want to eat it. I'm going to mix some mustard in with the leftovers and see if it improves the problem).
Tuesday: BBQ ribs, leftover coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy
Wednesday: Rosemary Mustard Chicken, Salad, Rice
Thursday: Chicken Queso Casserole, tortillas or garlic toast (depending on family preference), salad.
Friday: Sausage and Biscuits Breakfast Casserole
Saturday: Noodle Bowl Night
Sunday: Baked Chicken with Spiced Cranberry Sauce, stuffing, green beans.
Desserts: Cranberry Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce, Coconut Pudding (Thursday)
And there you have it folks. My menu plan for the week. You having anything interesting this week?
