I am so late getting this up! With the big dinner party/cookie swap on saturday and the super bowl party yesterday(yay steelers!), I am so behind on the blog! First and foremost, I gotta get this meal plan up.
This week, the make ahead mashed potatoes will be the star! I’m going to make them today and we’ll continue them as our starchy side dish throughout the week. Because my military weekend is this week, I’ll have to cook everyday this week, so there will be enough leftovers for the boys to eat. Lucky for them, tiring for the Mama. Here’s what I have in mind:
Monday: Chicken and gravy poured over corn and mashed potatoes
Tuesday: Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and garlicky chopped spinach
Wednesday: Homemade potato gnocchi in a cream spinach sauce
Thursday: Homemade fish sticks(new recipe friday!) with potatoes and mixed veggies
Friday: (homemade)Pizza Day!
Saturday and Sunday: Boys are on their own! Mama’s off to serve her country!
Dessert of the week: Leftover cookies from cookie swap: greek powdered cookies, chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia cookies, sugar cookies, and quick-mix chocolate cookies
Bread of the week: hmmmm….none! Hubby’s tired of sandwiches :o)
Soup of the week: french onion soup(leftover from last week)
