Menu Plan Monday

Sorry about last week, I really am. We did end up eating something for dinner every day, but I just really lacked the energy to create or commit to a plan. A highlight of the week (for the kids, anyway) was the pizza party we had for Judah's birthday--homemade pizza (I made the sauce and the dough, but not the mozzarella or sausage. So, only kind of homemade), pop, and homemade "Hostess" cupcakes. The kids couldn't believe their good fortune--pop? With dinner???? And no veggies?!?! Giddiness ensued.

One night we had crock-pot pork ribs. A couple days later, we had shredded pork sandwiches. Also, we had Shepherd's Pie, per Abe's request. So if this week's menu doesn't do it for you, those are some other suggestions from my un-chronicled week.

Up this week:

Brats with caramelized sweet onions
Asian Broccoli Slaw

Shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches w/pickles and cheddar
Green beans

Chicken and Sugar Snap Pea Stir-fry
Steamed Rice

Steak Salad with field greens, toasted almonds, sliced strawberries, and feta cheese

Baked Potato Soup
Leftover Salad


Campanelle Pasta (a new short-cut that looked fun)
with slow-cooker Marinara Sauce
