Menu Plan Monday: 3/22-3/28/10

Last week, I was feeling really motivated and eager to get some things done around the house. It was a busy week for us, but I still managed to do a lot, include working out in our garden Saturday afternoon. A glance at this week's calendar indicates another busy week. You know, we only have 2 kids. What would it be like if we had 3 or 4?

Here's what's on the menu for this week. I'll post the recipes during the week, so check back often. :)

Monday--Sweet 'n Sour Pork Chops, Rice Threads, Peas & Carrots
Mondays are our weekly "Family Home Evening" or FHE nights. We have a special lesson and activity, sing songs, make a dessert. Each member of the family has a responsibility (titles we call songer--picks out the songs, snacker--picks out the snack, prayer--says the prayers, reader--reads from the scriptures). For our activity, instead of sending out Easter cards, I'll have the kids color an Easter picture and we'll send those out to their grandparents & great-grandparents.

Tuesday--Don't Know the Name But It's Delicious
I have to leave soon after work to go to a meeting at church and I won't get home until late in the evening. Hubs gets to prepare supper and play "meals on wheels," delivering my food to me as I leave work. I've tried planning side dishes for the Tuesday night meal because this is typically his cooking night anyways, but he always ends up making something else. So rather than waste my time, I'll let him decide what to have with this meal since that's what he'll end up doing anyways.

Wednesday--Oven Barbecue Chicken, Baked Beans, Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday--Preschool Spirit Night @ Chick-Fil-A

Friday--Hubs & the kids are on their own
Girls' night out! This is my monthly scrapbooking night.

Saturday--Adobong Baboy (Pork Cooked in a Pickling Style), Green Beans, Cantaloupe
My freezer meal cooking day! It seems like my last cooking day was so long ago, but it was just last month. I've just been preparing for this one for what feels like forever. If you missed my freezer menu for March, you can click here to view it.

Breakfast: Oatmeal Pancakes
Dinner: Mu Shu Pork, Rice, Oranges

  1. So funny that you don't know the name for that recipe. I would've made one up and taken credit... like DeAna's Delish Dish.

    Have a yummy week.

    p.s. Check out the giveaway on my blog this week.

  2. Haha, I can't take credit for the recipe with no name. It's my aunt's recipe, and when she gave it to me, literally, that's what she called it--Don't Know the Name But It's Delicious. It kind of stuck. :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
