I spent some time planning meals for this week and grocery shopping for everything over this past weekend. I've got a busy week ahead and there's just something SO nice about knowing I've got my act together in the kitchen! A lot of the recipes I'm using are from the Mom Advice blog I previously mentioned. (I *would* link up to the recipes and get all technical like that but alas, I can be rather computer challenged most of the time!)
Monday: Slow cooker ravioli/tossed salad
Tuesday: Country ham and macaroni casserole/broccoli
Wednesday: Chicken pot pie/mashed potatoes/blueberry muffins
Thursday: Italian veggie and pasta soup/breadsticks
Friday: Eat out
Don't know about your families but around here most of the time I don't really plan a Friday night supper because it seems like everyone's kinda scattered around doing their own thing.
Yesterday we tried out two recipes I *definitely* think are worth mentioning! Our Sunday dinner & dessert was AWESOME! My family grew up eating a lot of "Sunday dinner pot roast" and so did my husband's! (So I don't know if THAT'S why I don't make it except for maybe once or twice every couple of months?!) Anyhow, I used the 'To Die For' pot roast recipe from the Mom Advice blog...wowzers, it truly lives up to its name...we LOVED it...so, so, sooooooo good! (Even our 13 year old non-lovin' beef daughter ate seconds - it was THAT delicious!)
The other recipe I'd like to pass along is one for 'Apple Pie Cake' that Manuela @ The Pleasures of Homemaking posted on her blog last week. It smelled so heavenly coming out of the oven and boy, was it ever yummo! We had vanilla ice cream with it. No calorie counting around here yesterday, that's for sure :)
Hope you have a wonderful week...enjoy each day and be intentional to make some cherished memories...I know I'm going to try!
