Menu Plan Monday - September 28, 2009

This weekend has been composed of the hard-to-find blend of relaxing yet with enough going on that no one is bored. Friday evening we actually hired a couple babysitters to watch 17 children so we could go a double date with some close friends. In all the years we'd known them, we'd never gone out as couples. It was a fun twist on the elusive "date night."

Saturday I made birthday cakes and lots of granola to stock up the freezer. In the evening our homeschool group had a pitch-in picnic - a great time to visit and eat!

Sunday was the BIG BOY BIRTHDAY BASH! Lunch at the Chinese Buffet, lots of presents, and even more cake. Photos coming soon...

This week we are looking forward to a more "normal" week. We'll actually be able to get in 5 days of school! This is what we'll be enjoying for dinner:

Monday (Caleb's BD) - Homemade Pizza (lots of it, by request)

Tuesday - Chicken Spaghetti Toss

Wednesday (AWANA) - Chicken Patty Sandwiches, Popcorn

Thursday - Speedy Southwest Salad

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Italian Pineapple Chicken, Rice, Cherry Mouse

  1. Happy Belated Birthday wishes! Sounds like date night was fun.
    You have so many yummy recipes planned for this week's menu.
    I love participating in MPM. I get such inspiration from visiting.

  2. The Italian Pineapple Chicken sounds good.
