What's on the Menu this week

Easter is over and we are all battling colds here.  Fevers, sniffles, coughing  UUGGHHHH.  What a way to start our spring break from school.  I am hoping to take the kids into the city this week to see the Amercan Museum of Natural History and maybe take them bowling or something.  Here is what we are likely to eat this week if I ever get to the foodstore to get what we need

Only until about a year ago I started menu planning.  It truely does save time and money and I think my family enjoys looking at the fridge to see what we are eating for the week (including my brother who is temporarily living with us).  He happened to notice yesterday that I didn't put the menu on the fridge and was asking for it.  He said he likes to see what I am making to know whether or not he will eat dinner with us.  If you don't like what we are having STARVE!! (or eat  But at least I know someone is paying attention to that menu I post

Monday:  We ate at the Diner since we were feeling under the weather and I wanted soup

Tuesday:  Chicken Chili with white rice

Wednesday:  London Broil on the grill, rice a roni, and green beans

Thursday:  Quesadillas (from leftover london broil) yellow rice and beans

Friday:  Homeade pizza (we are soooo spoiled!)

Saturday:  Our friends are coming for dinner .....Salad,  Sausage & peppers, Ziti, grilled eggplant & portabella mushrooms (my friend is a Vegan), and garlic bread

Sunday:  Leftovers

Weekly Menu Plan & my ramblings

So we are finally settled into our new temporary home.  It feels like we been here forever!  I hate the fact of not owning my home anymore and having to rely on the Landlord for repairs.  So far I had to call him for the clothes dryer that came with this house.  The first time I tried to dry clothes took over 3 hours to dry.  He came and checked and it turned out it really wasn't heating up. So he ordered me a new one within 24hrs.  BUUUUUTTT  it was a dirt cheap dryer.  Non energy effiecient and still takes the clothes about an hour and half to dry.  Then I noticed stains on the dining room ceiling (possible leak from upstaris bathroom) He came and his quick fix was to put silicone in between the loose tiles on the floor.  Apparently Little Lucy must be drip drying on the outside of the tub soaking the floor.  But the tiles were loose when we got here.  Today I had to call him because the oven stopped working!   Uggghh   We only been here a month.

Anyway here is what we are likely to eat this week

Sunday:  Roasted pork loin on the grill, mashed potatoes, sauteed carrots

Monday:     Leftovers

Tuesday:      Beef short ribs, mashed potatoes, broccoli

wednesday:   Fried chicken, orzo,  green beans

Thursday:  meatloaf, jacque peppin potatoes, broccoli

Friday:    Pizza

Saturday:  Meatballs & spaghetti, garlic bread

Sunday:  Easter dinner at Aunt Esa's house
