Last night I served shrimp sauteed in butter and garlic over angelhair pasta with orange and red sauteed peppers. It was really, really eh. I was disappointed. I'm going to stick to (gasp!) regular white pasta I think...the difference in taste, and more so the texture, of whole wheat or "smart" pasta just isn't worth it IMO.

Tonight my boyfriend is cooking pork shoulder cooked in the crockpot with sauerkraut and chopped cabbage. Sounds interesting, and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Tomorrow will be baked chicken legs, noodles with poppy seeds and butter, and some kind of mixed frozen veggies.

Thursday--not sure yet.

Friday will be crock pot BBQ ribs (mmm), cheesy rice and corn on the cob. This is a special meal for ds--his fave--to celebrate the last day of school.

Saturday we're going out to eat to celebrate fathers day for my boyfriend and his sons.

We are having 15 bean soup with white rice, sauteed spicy turnip greens, fresh corn on cob and cornbread.

It was supposed to be white beans, but I forgot we have no white beans. So, we will have the 15 bean mix.

It'll be a hot one this weekend so I did all my food prep yesterday: Spanish Pork Stew in the crock pot with warm tortillas and a salad tonight, then marinated lamb chops on the grill with cous cous tomorrow and marinated pork chops with cole slaw and baked beans on Sunday.

Thanks!

Saturday we ended up with the chicken ceasar salad, the kids had ham and pineapple kabobs. Last night we had pasta salad.

Tonight, I'm not sure yet. My oldest is having some dental work done so I know mashed potatoes will on the menu, but I'm not sure what else.

Us, too. Nik is still miserable with an ear infection.

Tonight we're having ham and bean soup with a salad.
Tomorrow is caesar salad and bruschetta, with cherry pie for dessert.
Wednesday is soccer night and is usually sandwiches in the car on the way or fast food.
Thursday is paella, with flan for dessert. Maybe I'll do sangria for the adults.
Friday ~ I don't know yet if we have plans for the 4th. If not, we may stay home and grill steaks and baked potatoes, and serve a salad along with it.

I don't usually make two different desserts in one week, but I'm in the mood for sweet stuff and after two weeks of sick kids......I'm indulging!

tonight will be homemade pizza with a salad. This is a weekly one in our house. I am also using more of my sneaky chef sauce for the pizza.
