Some pumpkin spice egg nog for dessert. Yum.

This weeks menu:

Salmon and creamed spinach. I haven't yet decided between brown rice and whole grain pasta.

Roast chicken w/ steamed broccoli and brown rice

quiche w/ leftover chicken

pumpkin soup w/ homemade rye/wheat rolls

homemade pizza

We'll be away for the weekend, so I hope my mom has planned something delicious for us.

Just did our meal plan for the week and went shopping - I'm saving the chili for the weekend and doing this instead:

Tonight - Chicken Philly cheesesteaks (chicken, red & yellow pepper, onion and provolone on a whole wheat hoagie roll) with sweet potato fries & salad.

Tues - Calezones with homemade sauce & wheat dough. I'm filling mine with veggies, ds and dh will also use turkey sausage and pepperoni.

Wed - Butternut squash soup with grilled sandwiches & salad.

Thurs - Meatball subs (turkey meatballs in homemade sauce w/ mozarella on whole wheat hogie) with salad.

I've got all kinds of good salad veggies this week and will be making my own dressings, I'm really looking forward to that!

I've also going to make some sort of apple dumpings, off to search for a recipe now!

Tonight is pasta. DH will have a seafood sauce and the kids and I will have chicken. I;ve got xome broccoli to go with it.

Later in the week we'll have roast chicken with roast veg and I'll make stock.

Last week we decided to start "soup fridays" I like to mark the end of the week so the plan is the kids and I will make bread rolls in the afternoon and we'll have them with homemade soup for tea. This weeks soup of the week will be chicken with the leftovers of the roast.

Last night we had a pre-cooked chicken from the grocery store with a couple of sides. Tonight we are having chicken and bean burritos, although it's up in the air whether they'll be homemade or from Chipotle. DH and I are both feeling pretty lazy this week.

Well, I kinda forgot about this thread. Oops.

Last night I made a wonderful lasagna (best one yet!) and a mix of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, and then also some sweet corn and yeast rolls. Delicious.

Tonight we ate with my parents. My mom made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, purple hull peas, and corn on the cob. It was really good.

Tomorrow night we'll be eating out because of DD's dance/gymnastics classes.

We had a really gross supper tonight that none of us hardly touched. It was mustard onion chicken (I won't even detail it), green beans, and Parmesan pasta. Well, okay, the pasta and green beans were fine, but the chicken was just bad. I'm really mad that I wasted four whole chicken breasts on that.

Chicken curry
Some sort of fish thingy
Some sort of vegetarian thingy, possibly falafel.
Pizza
Girls night out, so it's up to DH. And that usually means that he and the kids will have McDonalds

Tonight was Bacon, Caramelized Onion, Potato, and Corn Chowder. We were bad and didn't have a veggie or anything else with it.

Tomorrow is French Dip Sandwiches (made in the crockpot), garlicky home fries, roasted kale.

Wednesday is Pork Roast with Apples, Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes), and Brussels sprouts.

Thursday is chicken in a curry simmer sauce, rice, sweet potato fries and broccoli.

Friday we'll be a Halloween party where I think we're having pizza.

Saturday we'll be at a funeral.
