Menu 8/30/2010

I promise I'll start posting in between menus. :)

I'm trying two new recipes this week. since I'm leaving out of town on Thursdays (without the husband or children) I may be feeling a little guilty and want to make some great food for them.
So here we go:

Monday - Apricot Chicken Sandwiches
Tuesday - Gazpacho - I've been eager to try this
Wednesday - Black bean Quesadillas
Thursday - Chili
Friday - I'm sure Chad will be found at Taco Bell, Chipotle, or Costa Vida with two other husbands that dont know what to do for dinner
Saturday - not sure yet :) Maybe I'll actually do the homemade pizza this time!
Sunday - Pork Roast

Ok - so I am going to become cliche and post my weekly menu, BUT there is a reason. I have been doing weekly menus for a few weeks now (thank you very much - no applause needed) and I need a way to remember what I have done without having papers everywhere.... enter blog.
So if it is helpful for you then great - but I'm really doing it for me.
Also, I have decided that I am going to try one new recipe a week. Just to keep myself adventurous, and if it succeeds with the family, it can be entered into my revolving menu plan. This will most likely be on Monday nights because I usually do my grocery shopping on Mondays. sound good? Here we go:

Monday: Chicken with Olives
Tuesday: Steak fajitas
Wednesday: BLT's
Thursday: chicken tortilla soup
Friday: sloppy joes
Saturday: homemade pizza
Sunday: havent decided yet. Anyone want to invite us for dinner? :)

Quilt top

Step 10 completed out of 50 - my top is finished. It took some time to map it all out and peice it together, but I really enjoyed doing it. So much in fact that I think I am going to make two more so all of my kids have a quilt from me. They probably wont be zig zag next time though.
