What's Cooking Week of August 13th, 2017

We did really well staying on plan with the menu last week...well, until Friday...but one night is better than the previous week.

Here's what's on the menu this week...

Sunday -- Noodles & Eggs (it's a German meal, and we love it...our American spin on it anyway).
Monday -- Saucy Mozzarella Patties
Tuesday -- Hamburgers (didn't have last Friday, so tonight it is)
Wednesday -- Pork Tacos (this will be a new recipe...crockpot makes it even better)
Thursday -- YOYO (Brian off, and Sherrie has a meeting)
Friday -- YOYO (Brian off, and not sure our plans)
Saturday -- YOYO (Saturday Youth Event, so I don't have to cook)

What's on your menu this week?  Any new favorites?

What's Cooking Week of August 6th, 2017

So, we did okay with the menu last week.  Thursday's plans were the only ones that were thwarted.  They were not fulfilled because Brian was off, and we had a very late lunch, resulting in a last minute decision for Frozen Yogurt for supper (yeah, I know...healthy choice there mom).

Here's what's on the menu for this week...

Sunday -- Chicken Fajitas
Monday -- Meatloaf
Tuesday -- Homemade Pizzas
Wednesday -- Breakfast for Dinner (this is a repeat from last week, but it's an easy choice before church)
Thursday -- Lamb Chops (hoping plans don't get thwarted again since Brian is off)
Friday -- Hamburgers
Saturday -- Frikadellen or YOYO (not sure my plans for Saturday just yet)

What's on your menu this week?  Do you find a menu keeps you accountable?  How often do you rotate your menu?  I try to go as long as I can before repeating the main dish...it's a challenge I hold with myself.  LOL!

What's Cooking Week of July 31, 2017

It's been nearly a year since I've posted on the blog.  I feel bad about that, but life has just been busy, and well, sometimes I wonder if anyone ever reads this thing.  LOL!

Anyway, with the start of another school year (we are entering our 10th year of homeschooling), it's time to buckle down and try to get back to menu planning.  I typed up a list of all of our tried and true family favorites and asked the boys to help me choose the menu for the next few weeks.  I'm hoping by involving them, they'll hold me accountable and maybe even lend a hand in the kitchen.

This time around, I'm only posting the main dish...our sides are usually the same variation, so that's not very exciting.  We tend to go between sides of salad, steamed veggies, sauteed veggies, roasted veggies, pasta, rice, French fries, tater tots, etc.  So, there's not much excitement in listing those because every meal is nearly the same with a few variations.  LOL!

Here's what on the menu this week...

Sunday -- Cod (nothing fancy...bag of frozen fish)
Monday -- Crockpot chicken tacos
Tuesday -- Stuffed shells
Wednesday -- Breakfast for Dinner
Thursday -- Steak Fajitas
Friday -- YOYO (You're on Your Own...leftovers or easy fixin's because I've got plans)
Saturday -- YOYO (I'm chaperoning at our youth Saturday event, so we'll eat whatever the host home prepares)

So, that's what we have planned this week, and I'm really hoping I stick to it.  I went grocery shopping and have all the necessary ingredients, so there's no excuse.

What's cooking at your house this week?  Check in on me and see how well we stuck to the menu.  :)
