Menu Monday - Third Week's The Charm!

Last week we didn't quite stick to the menu 100% again so I'm hoping that this week we will get all of our ducks in a row and things will fall into place.  Travis being sick really threw off my groove but he's feeling much better now and there's NO MORE EXCUSES!  At least, that's what I keep telling myself.  :)

Monday - Chili (save leftovers for Wednesday)

Tuesday - "West Wing Night" featuring roasted whole chicken with rosemary potatoes and veggies

Wednesday - Chili-Mac (with leftover chili from Monday)

Thursday - Go out to eat!  (kids eat free at Texican!)

Friday - Southern Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies

Saturday -Papardelle pasta with roasted tomato sauce and grilled chicken

Sunday - Travis at game, leftovers or dinner with Melnicks for Alex and boys

Bonus food options: save chicken bones for home made stock, dehydrate strawberries for macarons


  1. OK, that menu puts me to shame. It sounds so good. Mine goes something like... Monday - Chick-fil-a, Tues - hot dogs, Wed - Taco get the idea!

  2. Lol, Amy. : )

    Travis made it pretty clear while we were dating that he fully expected me to make good use of my culinary degree by cooking him delicious food all the time. And we've worked it out that when I make dinner, he does the dishes! Hehehe. Besides, almost everything I make is super easy and fast because there's no way I have time to spend all day with my stove... no matter how much I'd like to! I'm playing with the idea of starting a food blog since posting recipes could overtake this blog faster than I could blink.


  3. That's right, I want to make sure the 40k we're paying out doesn't go to waste =)
