Menu Plan Monday

What a great weekend! My son didn't have school on Friday, so we took advantage of the opportunity and headed to Kalahari Indoor Waterpark right after school on Thursday and stayed through Friday mid-afternoon. It was nice to get away and have a good time. We ate out way too much, but really , what is your option when you are on vacation with no kitchen? Fazoli's, Dunkin Donuts and Steak 'n Shake were the dining locations of choice for the mini-vacation. We lucked into arriving at Steak 'n Shake for their Happy Hour and enjoyed half-price milk shakes. It was a yummy vacation, although, now I feel like I need to workout twice as long to make up for the additional calories that I consumed.

Saturday was my daughter's last soccer game. It was a good game and we wrapped up just before the rains came. With a rainy day at hand, we did some cleaning around the house and then finished the day with some movies.

Sunday was my Werther's Original Baking Caramels MommyParty. It was a delicious party, complete with caramel apple tarts, caramel brownies and caramel hot cocoa. Yum!

This week is a little quieter, now that we are down to just the playoffs for baseball. It makes it easier from a dinner planning perspective.



Chicken Cheesesteaks (and Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteaks)

Sloppy Joes and French Fries

Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes

Tilapia Vera Cruz

Chicken and Dumplings

During the week, breakfast is usually a bowl of cereal or oatmeal. Lunches are either the hot lunch from school or packed lunches for the kids. My husband and I have leftovers, frozen meals or sandwiches.
