Sometimes, I would like to hide under the cabinet and think no one could see me!
But, since I have to plan meals each week, I suppose I should get with the program!
Monday - Turkey breast, dressing, gravy,
green beans, turnip greens, sweet potato casserole, vegetable casserole, rolls, and cake pops, ice cream
It's our anniversary so I thought a nice meal might be in order. I can pull out my good china and set a pretty table. It's our 18th anniversary. According to the sources on the internet, porcelain or garnets are the appropriate gifts. Dennis gave me a new toaster oven! I gave him a car wash. Can you tell we are practical people when it comes to gifts?
Tuesday - Spaghetti with meat balls, garlic bread, corn on the cob
This is Dennis' favorite meal. I like it because it is not a hard meal to fix. D is not a big fan of meatballs. He likes his spaghetti with just sauce.
Wednesday - BBQ chicken, broccoli, creamed potatoes
We all like BBQ chicken. It's not a hard meal, just time intensive. I get home at 4 PM and Dennis likes to eat promptly at 5:30 PM. That does not give me a lot to time for meals that take a long time to cook.
Thursday - Beef stew with vegetables, cornbread,
I will need to pick up some potatoes and celery for this meal. The beef stew will cook in the crockpot while I am at work (those are my favorite recipes!)
Friday - salmon patties, green beans, hash brown casserole, brownies
Although Lent is over, we still like to have fish every Friday night throughout the year. I have to admit that it is not easy for me to have fish every Friday. But, since my husband thinks we should do this, we will. I try not to complain...too much!
Saturday - homemade chicken filet sandwiches with tomatoes, cheese, and spinach
This is an easy meal to have on Saturdays. We usually eat out on Saturday nights after Mass so this is a light meal.
Sunday - hamburgers (with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese), chips, pasta salad
Hamburgers are always a good quick meal on Sunday.
I really should explore some new meals. I get in the same rut with having the same meals over and over. Anyone have a suggestion on how to deal with that problem?
