Busy Week's Menu


I haven't been able to post my menus on Menu Plan Monday  for a couple of weeks.  And since it only takes me 15 seconds to get frustrated at computerese,  I may not this week either.  But at least I will type it up here and be able to look at it during the week!!

We have a crazy week again.  Monday we have a swim team party,  Tues I have one playing 3 v 3 soccer for the first, and probably only, time.   Thursday I am taking food to a new mom and going out to sushi with some good friends, (who also has a great crafting blog),  Friday we go over to some friends for a cookout, Saturday I only have kids, no hubby, and Sunday is potlunch. 

So how to do this?  Not sure.  Let's see what I can do.

Monday--cooking for elderly gentleman who has a sensitive stomach so maybe chicken and rice casserole for him (and freeze the rest for the new mom on Thursday!)  For us,  chicken quesadillas with homemade salsa from Pioneer Woman and ice cream from the ice cream truck rumored to be stopping in at the pool party.

Tuesday--Tuna croquettes, and with peas in a cream sauce.  Will be looking up a recipe for this in one of my older cookbooks.

Wednesday--- I think homemade pizza sounds good.  I loved the recipe from the June Southern Living.  I have fresh basil, fresh mozzarella, and mushrooms.  Oh YUM!

Thursday--kids can eat sandwiches,  I am going out for sushi with my husband and friends.  Will eat like a pig.

Friday--I will be taking watermelon and chips and corn and black bean salsa.  I probably need another side but want it to be finger foodish.  I will be searching.

Saturday--Thaw and reheat homemade cinnamon roll, bacon, and eggs.  Husband will be celebrating Kevin's 19th bday with  a guys movie night.  I hope to have the second installment from Netflix of Emma.  And maybe some homemade caramel popcorn.

Sunday--Not sure here.  It's potluck so probably a dessert and something else.

If you have any ideas let me know.  Preferably a no bake or crock pot recipe.  Or a salad.

Can't wait to check out some other sites.  I'll let you know if I find anything good.
