Menu for the week of November 15th!
Wow. Not much happened according to the plan last week since I didn't have a working oven till Wednesday! There was no routine last week with 1/2 days, parent teacher conferences, and days off...I was happy to survive all the week without missing an appointment. I also spent some great quality time with wonderful friends.
Yesterday I woke up not feeling wonderful, made it through church, and progressively felt worse as the day went on. We all have stuffy noses, mine seems to be hitting me hard. I'm going to attempt getting dinner in the crockpot this morning so I can just focus on laundry the rest of the day. I didn't get my second laundry day in last week since we had that day off, so we just hung out as a family playing on the play ground and using some of our free coupons from McDonalds that the kids got for halloween. A fair trade! ;)
I am also working on getting my shopping list together for Thanksgiving next week! I plan on hitting the grocery store this weekend. What are you making?? I'll get a post up of my plans this week! I think I have all the recipes I'm going to use. I'm going to attempt homemade cranberry sauce!
Last week I made Perfect Sesame Chicken and it was ok. I didn't fry the chicken since I rarely fry anything. I baked it for 20-25mins at 400. I reduced some of the sugar but my husband would've rather had it sweeter. I didn't have any chili paste. But it was fairly good. Next time I'm going to attempt the recipe as it.
On the menu for this week:
Monday - Italian Wedding Soup with homemade rolls (if I feel up to it today!)
Tuesday - Meatloaf and baked potatoes
Wednesday - Baked Oatmeal (recipe suggestions?) with apple slices
Thursday - Butternut squash mac and cheese, carry over from last week since I didn't make it.
Friday - Pizza and movie night
Saturday - Dinner with my parents, sister, and her husband!
Sunday - I'm going to make rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner at church.
