Last week was ANOTHER sick week around here. Do I sound annoyed? Good. It gets old, as I'm sure every mother reading this knows! I didn't even blog about it because I couldn't figure out a way for it not to sound like 'we're sick...again...whine, whine, whine'. Anyway, at least we're (mostly) better. Lots and lots that I had planned for last week did not happen. Not the least of which was cooking. You'll see lots of repeats! I'll be shopping on Fridays for a while, so my meal plans will reflect that change.
Sunday lunch: Cheeseburgers, corn on the cob, broccoli cole slaw, watermelon
Dinner: Take our pizza
Monday lunch (after parade) Pasta w/chicken, tomatoes, & spinach; Multi-grain french bread, broccoli.
dinner: Shrimp Scampi w/Linguini, caesar salad. Just for a lark, I'm making some mussels on the grill too. Last week when we were at Olive Garden DS tried one and loved them. I've very, very curious if it was just a fluke. Anyway, it's a good excuse to make some mussels.
Tuesday: Chicken w/Lemon-rosemary marinade, grilled squash, Near East Long Grain & Wild Rice chicken w/roasted vegetables (this is the best packaged rice EVER!)
Wednesday: One of our favorite meals--silly as that is! Salmon Patties (recipe follows), Easy peasy chicken legs (for those who won't eat salmon patties), buttered noodles, creamed peas
Thursday: Crockpot Chinese Pork Tenderloin
Friday: Make your own pizza, using refrigerated dinner roll dough. I cry uncle at trying to figure out a yummy make your own.
