I just wanted to take a few moments out to let you know what we’re having for dinner this week. I usually try to put this out on Friday or Saturday, but it was a work Friday and a very busy Saturday, so I’m getting to it today.
Did you remember to change your clocks for Day Light Savings time? I remember to change the clock in the bedroom so that I could get to church yesterday morning, but forgot the rest of the clocks. Let’s just say we had dinner at 6:30 last night and I thought until the end of dinner that I was doing good with my time.
Here’s what’s for dinner…
Sunday – We had…Chicken Stroganoff, Spinach, Candied Yams (that I found leftover in the freezer from a previous dinner), and homemade biscuits
Monday – Chicken and Wild Rice Soup and Boston Brown Bread (Babydoll loves this bread and she has a dentist appointment today that she was terrified when I told her about it so I want to end her day on a happier note.)
Tuesday – Fried Shrimp and Sweet Potato Tator Tots (this is assuming I make up the Tator Tots today, but I started back at the gym today, meaning I lost an hour, and I still have three loads of laundry and the bathrooms to clean – already vacuumed the downstairs. Does anyone else hate cleaning bathrooms as much as I do?)
Wednesday – Turkey Burgers with Potato Pancakes (I think I’m noticing a potato theme this week and that was not my intention at all).
Thursday – Chicken & Waffles and some type of green vegetable. I originally had spinach down as the side, but I cooked it yesterday, so now I’m thinking broccoli or asparagus. Stan is not a fan, but Babydoll loves it, especially with lemon pepper and lemon juice squeezed on it, and it’s on sale this week; I can pick some up before I pick her up from school.
Friday – Fish Fry Friday…enough said.
Saturday – Last Saturday, I volunteered to work at the church and was gone most of the day. This Saturday, I have a book club meeting and cannot say what I will do; it may be an every-man-for-himself day.
For dessert this week I decided to make brownies – two types one without nuts and no frosting for Babydoll and the second with walnuts and a peanut butter chocolate icing. I bought some Salted Caramel Blue Bell Ice Cream to go along with it.
That’s our menu this week, as you can see besides the potatoes everywhere; we are having a lot of poultry this week. I asked Stan if he thought we could have a menu entirely of chicken…he said let’s do it. I settled for mostly poultry with a few seafood items mixed in just so it wouldn’t become too boring. Maybe I’ll do a whole week of it at another time to see how it goes. What are you having this week?
