What's for Dinner?
Here's what we ate last week. I always share LAST week's menu so I have time to take picture, load them up, edit them, etc.; alas, this week was not meant for me to have time for much of anything! How does a week get so crammed with stuff so quick? Most of it was good busy though--trips to the doctor for well-baby check ups, playing with kids, etc. Extra fun though? Furniture shopping! Years ago when our couches were so old and ugly, I bought some nice couch covers for them (soooo worth it!), but now that the covers are thread-bare, it's time to invest in a new set. I think we found "THE SET," so happy birthday to me! (A few weeks early, but no matter).
Also, for date night this week, my husband and I finally watched that Liam Neeson film Taken. Sheesh, about scare you to death! Especially as a parent to two girls.
ANYWAY, here's the menu. I hope it can serve as some inspiration for you. :)
Hot Tuna Sandwhiches with relish tray (We use a Southern recipe from my husband's Grandma--this one is pretty close.)
Roast Chicken with Roasted Parsnips and Yams
Chicken Salad Sandwiches (added grapes to mine) (All these sandwhiches! What can I say, I was in the mood for easy, light meals!) (used leftover chick from Tues)
Chicken Noodle Soup (My hubby informed me that by this time in the week he was getting a bit tired of chicken....) (used leftover chick from Tues)
Quickie Marinara with Penne and broccoli
Navajo Tacos (fry bread/scones topped with vegetarian chili and taco fixin's)
French Onion Beef Short Ribs with side salads (green beans for the kiddos--my oldest, who is 3, still informs me that her "teeth are not big enough yet to eat lettuce." She eats all her other veggies great, so whatever...) :)
Happy menu planning,
