D and B leave for the big 5th grade trip on Saturday, so I wanted to make some of their favorites this week. Last week was a disaster! 5 out of 7 nights were not what I planned...however, last night i made flank steak and skillet potato pancake from Melissa D. of the Food Network-awesome!! So here is our menu for the week...
Tuesday-Lemon Chicken (D's fave)
Wednesday-Wanchai Ferry meal-so easy and yummy for a night when I work
Friday-BBQ pork (b's fave)
Sat-C and I will be going out-a lot!
Have a great week.
PS-my great Aunt Ida passed away today. I did not know her very well, but always think of her smile and how much my grandmother loved her. (She was my grandfather's sister.) The Lord has taken her from this place to a much better place that we can't even imagine-tell Nana hi for me Tia Ida :)

D and I exchanged goofy cards as always. B and C got some yummy Reese's PB hearts-soo good.
We ended up with a lot of leftovers last week, so some things carried over for this week.
Saturday-we had Pasta Carbonara-bacon, egg, cheese pasta
Sunday-steaks and for dessert baked fudge from the Pioneer Woman-I'll tell ya later how they came out
Monday-Shrimp and Grits
Tuesday-Chicken Fried Rice
Wednesday-Crock pot Spaghetti
Thursday-Jambalaya-didn't get to it last week...
Have a great week and please say a prayer for my friend Cherie, she is going thru a rough time with chemo and pain and could use as much prayer as possible.

Hello. It is Saturday night-what are you doing? I am getting ready for bed and thinking about meal planning for the week ahead-BORING-I know. I do have to work tomorrow-how the heck did I not realize it was Super Bowl Sunday when I could make my schedule requests???
No party this year, but I am leaving D and the boys with lots of snacks to eat and a steak to grill.
Today B got promoted to yellow belt in jiu jitsu-he was very excited. I am going to try to get a better picture up soon, but am having issues...
Tonight we did not do leftovers as planned, but instead had Firecracker Shrimp from the Pioneer Woman-spicy and awesome!
The week ahead...
Sunday-grilled steak and snacks
Monday-Pasta Carbonara (we all love bacon and cheese)
Tuesday-Chicken and Rice
Wednesday-Thai Coconut Chicken soup and crab angels
Friday-leftovers (B has a party to go to for best friend G)
Saturday-Mexican Penne Pasta (from the freezer-made about 2 weeks ago from the Packet Queen-made enough for dinner for all of us and enough for lunch for me the next day)
Enjoy the Super Bowl!
