For those of you that don't plan a menu, I have no clue how you do it. My family would be eating takeout at least half the time and spaghetti the other half. Here is this week's plan.
Monday - We were supposed to have meatloaf tonight (figuring the teens with pulled wisdom teeth might be able to eat it) but with yesterday being John's birthday I got mixed up and forgot to defrost the beef. Soooooooo dh is picking up something at the store, I have no clue what... if the teens can't eat it or don't want to, then they can have eggs or pancakes.
Tuesday - We will have meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans. Easy foods for post-oral surgery teens.
Wednesday - We are planning to go to Chattanooga to the aquarium (MJ hasn't been since 2nd grade) and not sure if we'll be home for dinner so it's spaghetti w/meat sauce; quick,easy and another soft meal for the teens.
Thursday is New Years Eve so we eat junk - Sausage Balls, mozzarella sticks, pizza rolls, buffalo chicken tenders,
Friday (New Year's Day): We are transplanted Yankees - we do NOT eat black-eyed peas. No way, no how!!! We have our own family tradition of homemade calzones. Much tastier and full of nutrition (think protein and calcium from all the cheese).
Saturday - Scott and James are going to the PapaJohns.com Bowl in Birmingham to watch UConn whoop South Carolina. Not sure yet what the other kids and I will eat. We may get BBQ from Lawlers; just not sure.
Sunday - Dh will stir fry Kung Pao Chicken.
