Menu Plan ~ July 12, 2009

Baseball is officially over.  We only have swimming & ice skating now.  Seems like a breeze to me!  LOL!  This week I only have Regan (my little sister that I watch; she is 7)…Emma (the 2 year old I watch) is on vacation.  I promised Jon, Hannah & Regan that we would do some “big” kid activities this week since we don’t have to worry about little Emma.  They are super excited.  On the agenda are multiple pool days, Magic Mountain Family Fun Center and maybe some bowling or a movie if the weather gets rainy or too cold.  I see one tired Mom by the end of the week!  LOL!  Our evenings are pretty free this week, with the exception of ice skating.  Mary, my mother-in-law, is taken care of this week for dinners, as her sister is in town staying with her. 

Sunday ~ Rotisserie Chicken (can’t beat $4.97 for a chicken!), roasted veggies & salad

Monday ~ Burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans & salad

Tuesday ~ Grilled chicken, quinoa & chickpea salad, broccoli & salad

Wednesday ~ BBQ Pulled Pork, baked potatoes, cole slaw & salad

Thursday~ Spaghetti & meat sauce, asparagus, salad & foccacia bread

Friday~ Homemade pizza, zucchini & salad

Saturday~ leftovers

Baked Goods

Raspberry-Coconut Bars (from the cookbook that I reviewed)

Betty Crocker Yellow Cake mix

Pamela’s Bread

Angela at Angela’s Kitchen is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week.  Angela chose cabbage at the ingredient of the week.  I love cabbage in all shapes & form.  Sauerkraut, fried cabbage, stuffed cabbage (especially my dear Grandma’s) & cole slaw.  I have cole slaw on the menu for Wednesday to go with BBQ pulled pork.  In the South, apparently they put cole slaw on their pulled pork sandwiches.  I hadn’t ever seen anything like that until my sister, who lives in Atlanta, told me about this last year.  I have since tried it and now love it! 

Also, don’t forget to check out Orgjunkie for lots more menu ideas.

Oh, I have 2 new articles up on the Examiner, too!  Support groups in Columbus and a Fundraiser for research for Celiac Disease.  Thanks for peeking!

    • I thought it was over! LOL! Now it really is. They lost last night, finally! LOL! I am proud of his team. They came back & really did well; they had lost most games early on this season.
