Menu week of 2-22-09

Last week didn't go completely as planned. As a result we had cheesy chicken and rice casserole tonight and a meal is carried over to this week. We'll be out of town this coming weekend because we'll be celebrating Jared's dad's birthday with his family. So here is this week's menu:

Monday: Roast beef Crockpot meal

Tuesday: Homemade deli sandwiches with all the fixens

Wednesday: Homemade lasagna

Thursday: Chili

Friday: Leftovers (travel day)

Saturday & Sunday: Out of town

I'm also making sugar cookies for Jared's dad and a friend, whose birthday is also this coming weekend (well, her 1/4 birthday since she is a leap year baby). I'm also making a gluten-free birthday cake for my dad since his birthday was Valentine's day.

Have a delicious week!

I love making breakfast on Saturday mornings. Today breakfast was
cheesy egg omlets with bacon. Mmm

I also love how good the camera is on my iPhone.

Menu week of 2-16-09

Finally, a week of nothing to do! We finally finished our living room remodel, now all we need to do is buy furniture for it. I decided the next big project I want to take on is creating a workout room in the basement. I am left to do all the planning and research myself, because J wants nothing to do with it at the moment. He's not really ready to take on another big project so quickly. Anyway here is the menu for this week.

Monday: Sloppy joes and jojo fries

Tuesday: Chicken stir fry and white rice

Wednesday: Beef enchiladas and spanish rice

Thursday: Cheesy chicken and rice casserole

Friday: fettuccine alfredo and bread sticks

Saturday: Beef pot roast crockpot meal

Sunday: Eat out somewhere

Have a delicious week!

Menu week of 2-8-09

As I just got back in town this afternoon, there was no Sunday menu post. This weekend I visited the family and ate some tasty local cuisine. I met an old friend at Dakota's roadhouse for dinner on Saturday evening. We haven't talked in 7 years (which means since we were in high school) so we were able to catch up and share our gossip about our old classmates. It was a good time. I had a bacon angus cheeseburger, fries, and a sweet tea, which the waiter was kind enough to ask if I wanted vodka in. Sadly, I had to refuse because Jared wasn't there to drive me home. Sunday, we had t-bones, baked potatoes, corn, and grilled pineapple. Grilled pineapple is quite possibly the most delicious thing on the planet. This afternoon, I met my mom at Cardo's Pizza in Jackson (which is my favorite pizza ever) and she gave me a cute little Valentine's card. I brought a pepperoni pizza back up here for Jared and I for dinner. So without further delay, here is the rest of the week's menu.

Tuesday: Kielbasa and caesar pasta salad
Wednesday: Brenner; probably scrambled eggs and bacon and sausage or waffles
Thursday: Cheeseburgers and oven potatoes
Friday: Italian chicken, baked potatoes, and green beans
Saturday: per V-day tradition, we will be having chinese takeout. We started doing this about 5 years ago when we were in college.
Sunday: TBD, just not coming up with anything good right now

Cute story: the year we started the chinese food thing for Valentine's day dinner, I sent Jared an invitation to the dinner I had planned. We lived in dorms right next to each other, but I opted to mail the invite rather than just hand it to him or just slip it under his door. We had these study rooms in the hallway of my dorm, so I reserved on for 6:00 that day. The invite I sent him had a picture of the study room drawn with a clock that read 6:00. He got it in the mail and then came over at 6 and we had chinese food for dinner. It has been our thing ever since.

Well it is getting late. Good night and have a delicious week!

Week of 2-1-09 menu

Yesterday for lunch, we had Little Kahuna corned beef sandwiches from Mike Kahuna's Deli in Streetsboro. The corned beef is served on rye and has spicy mustard and swiss cheese. Mmm it is so good. They have so many tasty things that I need to try. That being said,
Monday's special is beef stroganoff.

Monday: Beef Stroganoff from Mike Kahuna's Deli
Tuesday: Crockpot Beef Roast with potatoes and carrots
Wednesday: Homemade pizza rolls & Pasta salad
Thursday: BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches
Friday: Chili
Saturday: Out of town
Sunday: Out of town

I'll be out of town from Friday evening to Monday morning. My sister is hosting a purse party on Sunday afternoon, so I'll be driving home Monday morning. Good thing there will be lots of leftovers for Jared to eat over the weekend, though I have a feeling there may be some TacoBell wrappers here when I get back.
My dad has celiac disease, so I anticipate some yummy gluten-free dishes this coming weekend. Which reminds me, I need to go to Mustard Seed Market and buy some gluten-free noodles to take to him. Maybe some gluten-free beer too ;) Superbowl tonight: pizza, chips and salsa, and cream cheese/ refried beans dip.

Have a delicious week!
