Hey, What's For Dinner?

Here is the new menu:

Tuesday ~ Scalloped Potatoes accompanied by beets, relocated from it's previous place on Monday

Wednesday ~ Pizza with Pineapple for the kids and with olives, sauteed mushrooms and garlic for the grownups

Thursday ~ Salmon with roasted brussel sprouts and carrots (the vegetables are my kids favorite, believe it or not)

Friday ~ Thai inspired Peanut Chicken and cauliflower

Saturday ~ Possibly using a gift certificate for PF Changs that I have been carrying in my purse for at least the last 12 months (maybe longer)

Weekly Menu

I am not a breakfast person. Not really fond of eggs or bacon and sweet stuff makes me feel sluggish. I've settled, recently, on steel cut oats mixed with peanut butter. I love the chewiness of the oats and the peanut butter is just the right combination of sweet and salty. Mmmm. Lunch is either soup, salad or a half sandwich.

Here is dinner:

Monday ~ Turkey Sliders and Baked Yam Slices

Tuesday ~ Pumpkin Chili (with Tomatoes and Pumpkin from our summer garden)

Wednesday ~ Homemade Macaroni and Cheese with Green Beans

Thursday ~ BUNCO! Chicken Cacciatore

Friday ~ Date Night (It's a surprise)

Saturday ~ Burritos

Sunday ~ Soup (Yet to be determined, but thinking about Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder)

Sunday Traditions

Every Sunday, we all pile on the couch and watch America's Funniest Home Videos while eating popcorn. I love listening to my family laugh. I was also laughing at Natalia as she repeatedly said, "oh, that's not safe." I have to admit I am not opposed to using the videos to support safety. I have been known to ask the kids if they remembered what happened to someone on AFV that was doing the same thing.
