OK...so it's been FOREVER and a million years since I've done a Menu Plan Monday over at Org Junkie. But I want to get back into it so I thought I'd plan what's up for this week. It's going to be pretty simple since we're gearing up for leaving on vacation Thursday night...but here's what we're planning. Since we live with my mom we have divided the days up for cooking as so: Monday and Wednesday are mom's days to cook, Tuesday and Thursday are mine, then Friday, Saturday and Sunday we collaborate, or we might go out to eat, or go see his mom and dad, etc.
So this week's menu looks like this:
M-Italian night: Lasagna and Chicken Alfredo with garlic bread
T- Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy and a veggie
W- not sure what mom has in mind for this night
R- since I'll be busy packing and getting the last minute things ready I'm thinking a slow cooker recipe for today. Golden mushroom pork chops, with sliced potatoes and onions. Add some green beans and some peaches and it's an easy dinner.
F- we will have arrived in Washington DC. We might hit my mom's favorite restaurant in China Town for noodles.
S- Mom's birthday! My brother is planning a dinner out, possibly a restaurant called Two Amy's which is a Tuscan pizza restaurant. Apparently it's a favorite of the Biden's. Maybe we'll see them there (I hope not :P)
S- Happy Birthday America! It's the 4th of July and we'll be on the National Mall in DC enjoying the Smithsonian Folk Festival. This year it's Mexico and the Asian Pacific, so who knows what we'll end up eating! I'm sure it'll be great though!!!!
So that's our menu this week! I hope everyone has a great week! I hope this is the beginning of getting back into the habit of menu planning! Thanks Laura for hosting! To see more menu plans head over to Org Junkie.
