This Week's Plan

This week's plan requires a little tweaking from my pre-set menu plan because we have a big birthday bash planned for Saturday afternoon. My oldest and youngest have birthdays within three weeks of eachother, and I thought it would be fun and easy to throw a combo party. With family and friends included, we should have 40 people attending. I will post this week about how I plan to throw an inexpensive, fun lunch party for 40 people. (Barring the swine flu, of course. Starting to feel a little achy. Paranoia??)
MONDAY - Sloppy joes (with shredded carrot snuck in), Pumpkin dinner rolls, potato chips (rare treat around here)
TUESDAY - Roasted Chicken, potatoes (not sure which way I'll prepare them yet), green veggie
WEDNESDAY - Classic Spaghetti (I'm tired of this - but my kids aren't!!), homemade oatmeal bread, peas
THURSDAY - Tuna, spinach and brown rice casserole (sounds weird, but VERY yummy), yogurt, corn
FRIDAY - Pizza, apples
SATURDAY - Popcorn and smoothies (post-party recouperation) - we don't participate in halloween, so nothing out of the ordinary for our family
SUNDAY - Pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs (I am not a morning person. But, I am a breakfast person!! So, I cook it for dinner and enjoy it while I'm wide awake.)
What do you have planned??

  1. I love breakfast too!
    You have a fun Halloween or Harvest Festival!

  2. Thank you so much from Charles, Marcus and I for sharing your grocery shopping tips.
    I just posted a highlight of several of the responses that I received.
    Just wanted you to know that I provided a link back to your blog.
    I have several friends in the same boat as us ~ asking questions and have referred them.
