My Finds Monday #3 - The "What's for Dinner" Edition
Spring is here . . . the weather is warmer and things are getting crazier. Sunday was ABSOLUTELY beautiful outside and I got almost nothing on my to-do list done. I did get to the grocery store, though, which means that I have everything that I need for this week's menu!
I've decided to also link up on I'm an Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday!
So here are the recipes I found on the internet to make this week . . . my menu for a CRAZY BUSY week! Wish me luck!
Monday - Baked Fried Chicken . . . it looks REALLY yummy! I'm also planning on some garlic bread and Caesar salad, too!
Tuesday - Chili . . . this is actually Jerry's turn to cook and the pressure is on this week! He is going to whip up a batch of his "famous to us" Chili. I don't really have a recipe to share with you but I will try to get him to put it together (think I could talk him into a guest post?!?!?!)
Wednesday - Beef Stroganoff . . . oddly enough, my kids LOVE Beef Stroganoff! They will be excited about this one! Plus, I get to stick it in the slow cooker so it will cook while I'm working all day and will be ready for me to eat before I head back out for work in the evening. (It's Art Show time at our preschool!)
Thursday - Eat at Nana's or have some leftovers. I have to work on Thursday (all day and again that evening) and the kids will be at my MIL's house . . . again. Being the saint that she is (no, I'm not exaggerating) she will probably feed the kids and have something for me if I stop in before heading out again, too!
Friday - Tuna Cornbread Cakes . . . Yes, I know Lent is over but we still have a crap load (it's a real unit of measurement, right?) of tuna left so I figured we would give this recipe a shot. I even bought the stuff for the Lemon Aioli!
Saturday - There is a chance . . . that we may be going OUT to eat on Saturday. Rumor has it that my Mom and Dad want to take EVERYONE (basically me, Jerry, my sister and the 5 kids) out for pizza at our favorite pizza place! Mmmmm....
Sunday - Chicken and Barley Stew . . . this is a quick recipe that I'm planning on just throwing together while I cook for the week on Sunday. I'm going to try to do a 5 day cooking day on Sunday with my sister. I'll keep you posted on how it goes! :)
There you have it - what's for dinner this week on My Finds Monday!
Let me know if you plan on or try any of the recipes! I'd love to hear what you thought, too!
