Menu: December 31 - January 6

This time, our return from a long vacation wasn't as hard because Paul decided to take the day off yesterday. :) We planned the menu together and went shopping first thing. I like this way much better. Here's what we planned:

Wednesday (today): Potato Soup
Thursday (Paul's Birthday): Hawaiian Haystacks (or Chinese Haystacks, as Paul's family calls them) and wantons
Friday: Golden Porkchops
Saturday: Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas (Chef Britta)
Sunday: Meatloaf, carrots, mashed potatoes, and homemade rolls
Monday: Yakisoba
Tuesday: Chicken quesadillas

Happy New Year, everyone! :)

Found: New Blog of YUMMINESS!

I'm not sure if that's how you spell yumminess, but it works for me. I was poking around blogs today and found a food blog belonging to a friend of mine from high school. Here's the site Don't let the name fool you! She has yummy dinners posted in addition to her frosted treats. I can't wait to try them when I have some time. I'm proud of you Jennie for sticking to your meal planning. You're a shining example to us all! Use the site well!

Menu: December 9 - December 15

I have a bunch of great recipes to share, and I'll try to get caught up in posting them over the next couple days.

Until then, here's this week's menu! It was much easier than last week, but that's because I'm only using one new recipe (and by new I mean it's not already posted here). It's been a while since I've used so many recipes I already have. :) Sorry guys!

Tuesday: Italian Crescent Bake (this is the recipe leftover from last week's menu because Paul spontaneously decided to take me on a date! :) )
Wednesday: Chicken Cutlets
Thursday: unplanned...we have a conflict of events here, one is Paul's company Christmas Party
Friday: Chili and Cornbread
Saturday: Potato Soup
Sunday: Easy Chicken Roll-Ups (FFR)
Monday: Golden Pork Chops

Menu: December 3 - December 8

What a wake up call it is to come home from an almost two-week vacation and have to plan a menu once again! This was hard! I discovered a cookbook of Paul's that I've never looked at before, so a lot of this week's meals come from there. We'll see how it goes!

Wednesday: Chili Chicken Tacos (Chef Britta)
Thursday: Hamburger Stroganoff
Friday: Suzy's Italian Chicken
Saturday: BBQ Beef Bowls
Sunday: Italian Crescent Bake
Monday: Easy Vegetarian Lasagna
