Menu Plan Monday - October 4th
Last week's menu went pretty well. We enjoyed the Ritz Cracker Eggplant Casserole. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of golden mushroom, only blanched the eggplant briefly and used a little more cheese and ritz crackers than the recipe called for.
This week is a little busy with plans to have company for dinner over on Saturday. My daughter has two birthday parties on Saturday - a Boo Bowling Party and a Movie Night Sleepover. I have to get gifts and finish her Brownie sash (the iron on patches sooo didn't stay on!). On Friday my son's preschool is taking a field day trip to a local farm. We get to go on a hayride, pick apples, have snacks and bring home a pumpkin. Of course I think he is most excited about riding on a school bus.
This week I'm planning the following:
Sunday - Homemade Pizza - Cheese for the Kids, Eggplant and Onion for Mom and Dad (this was AWESOME!)
Monday - Soup and Sandwich Night
Tuesday (Soccer) - Roasted Stuffed Chicken (my mother in law's stuffing recipe), Gravy, Mashed Potataoes, Broccoli (leftover chicken used for lunches and Thursday's dinner, bones used to make stock)
Wednesday (Dance) - Crockpot Swiss Steak (I will add chopped tomatoes to this recipe), Noodles, Green Beans
Thursday - Chicken, Sausage and Broccoli over Pasta, Tossed Salad
Friday - Crockpot BBQ Pork Ribs, Baked Beans, Homemade Potato Chips, Carrots and Celery with Ranch Dip
Saturday (Company for Dinner) - Still working on a menu plan for this....considering doing a hearty appetizer type buffet but I'm not sure yet.

Have a great week!
