Menu Plan Sunday 9/20

Recap: The roast/potatoes/carrots were awesome, as usual! It's a no-fail recipe.

This is what they looked like at 8am: This is what it looked like at 4pm: I don't peel my carrots ever since I heard Rachel Ray say I didn't have to! It was so freeing for me since I'm a rule

Finished product:We didn't get to Thursday's Bar-B-Q Chicken because the church sent lasagna home with us & Nick didn't eat it Wed. My boys loved it we actually had it Wed. & Thurs! Friday we had a fantastic time on Girls Night Out, Red Lobster & Love Happens. Deanna & I split two appetizers, Lobster pizza & Lobster Artichoke Cheese dip/chips. They were both yummy & our checks were less than $11/each INCLUDING TIP!! Although I added to my tip because Chris is a great waiter. (Yes, I know the waiter by name now, spent last two weekends getting to know him.) Saturday we had various leftovers, trying to make room in fridge.

This week

Sunday: For lunch I had a BLT (my FAVE sandwich) but my boys had their fave, Daddy's spaghetti! For dinner I think we'll hit Wendy's...been a while..

Monday: Leftovers since Nick's at school

Tuesday: Bar-B-Q Ribs on grill w/corn on the cob & Salad

Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie @ church

Thursday: Grilled Pork Chops (sprinkled w/dry steak seasoning), Mac-n-cheese, Green Beans (sprinkled lightly w/onion powder, garlic salt & Parkay spray then microwaved in my Pampered Chef steamer), Pear halves (w/a dollop of mayo, sprinkle of shredded cheese, half cherry on top) I grew up on these pear halves! They make a beautiful display & are either loved or hated. We have 3 that LOVE & 3 that won't even try them, bah humbug! Let me know what your family thinks! You're not going to believe this (OK, maybe you will) but I googled & found this picture! I'll try to remember to take my own too:

Friday: Steak kabobs w/onions/potatoes/pineapple, sliced green peppers, tomatoes & cucumbers

Saturday: Crock Pot Coney Dogs Just seems perfect for a football day! Will have to make some plain ones for the boys..

Happy Cooking!!
