When it came to last week's menu I did actually pretty well following it (woohoo). The only thing that differed from the original menu was that Saturday and Monday we ended up having left overs both days to use up some of the leftover tacos and things in the fridge, so I ended up not having to make a "new" dinner those couple of nights.
I also baked up a storm this last week. I made cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting (for my husband to take to work to replace his beloved morning miniature cinnamon roll he was buying from Cinnabon), bread (used 1/2 of the bread recipe for the cinnamon rolls and made one loaf of bread), cake for strawberry shortcake and chocolate frosted cake (for the son as that's the only way he'll eat cake) and home made soft pretzels (the leftovers after dinner last night seen up top). The pretzels were for last night's dinner, which was a treat for my husband. I don't make them often because making pretzels take multiple pans and dishes to make (small kitchen makes this a bit of a process), take a lot of time and effort and I always find myself kind of "eh, these are okay" after making them *laugh*. I'd planned the dinner with sausages and pretzels since October...you know...Octoberfest. Yup, shows how on the ball I am on menu plans sometimes *laugh*.
So onto this week's menu!
