Menu Plan Monday: September 1-7, 2008September 2, 2008
Comments on last week’s menu: The souped up rice was not as good as we had hoped it would be. We were looking for a way to make the rice that Trevor really likes in his favorite chicken & rice dish, but this was not it. This is the second time I’ve used Minute Rice in a recipe and haven’t liked it. I wonder if it’s the rice.
Monday — already passed. We were on our way home from an extended weekend trip. We broke one of my cardinal rules of eating on the road and bought dinner at a convenience store/gas station. It was horrible. And expensive. And horribly expensive, thus reinforcing my rule.
Tuesday — Sophia’s school is having back to school night tonight, so we are going to have spaghetti, Caesar salad, and garlic bread. I know, we just had this last week but it’s one of Dan’s favorites and the kids usually eat it pretty quickly rather than sitting at the table for a long time complaining about their meal.
Wednesday — leftover 40 Garlic clove chicken that I will mix with a Parmesan cheese sauce, pasta and crumbled bacon. Served with peas (I might just mix them in too, although it will bother the kids).
Thursday — We have a late afternoon appointment, so it will be a crock pot meal of pork chops, served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
Friday — family movie night! We will watch the much-anticipated new release of The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning and eat finger foods. If I’m feeling particularly inspired, I will make it a seafood theme meal.
Saturday — I’m going to a scrapbooking crop for most of the day, then to church for a ladies’ ice cream social.
Sunday — leftovers or snacking
