Menu Plan Monday

Can we be done with this snow already? We are supposed to be getting 3-5" tonight. There was no school today, because of the holiday, and depending on how the timing works out for the snowfall tonight, it seems likely that there could be a delay or closure tomorrow. Despite the weather, we seem to have a rather busy schedule the first half of the week with swim lessons, baseball practice (indoor, obviously), work out classes, church youth groups and meetings filling our evenings. As such, there are a lot of quick to table meals on the menu the first half of the week, with the longer prep meals coming at the end of the week.

My son has taken a lot of interest in cooking, he is a big fan of the cooking competition shows. So, a few weeks back, when I was traveling, he made English Muffin Pizzas (not sure where he saw this, but it was his idea). They are included on this week's menu, as was a Chopped Kids Edition where they decided to get creative with the prosciutto and cheese that we had left from dinner earlier in the week. My son went with what he called hash - chopped prosciutto warmed and topped with cheese and crushed crackers and an over medium egg on top. My daughter (who I did most of the cooking for - she stirred the prosciutto while it was cooking) went with prosciutto and cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla with scrambled eggs on the side.

As we are now back in school, the kids either pack or buy the hot lunch at school. My husband and I rely on leftovers, frozen meals and lunch meetings for lunch.

English muffin pizzas are the best and so much fun to make with kids...we like to make pizzas on Italian bread too.
