This is an odd week for us, the kids left this morning for St. Louis to visit their great-grandparents. I asked Mike this morning what he wanted on the menu, his response was “let’s just eat out every night!” I was on-board with that until he found a belated birthday present he wanted (and I had not budgeted for). I gave him his choice, the toy or dinner out every night. Of course he chose the toy. Ugh – I guess I won’t get away from menu planning after all.
Last week I played around with a pineapple upside down cupcake using a box cake mix. How easy is that? Be sure and check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.
Salad (spinach, cold chicken, glazed pecans, Craisins, bleu cheese crumbles with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing)
Pizza on the Grill
Fend for yourself (I have a meeting one night)
Dinner with friends
Since the kids won’t be around dinner will be pretty casual. We’re keeping it pretty simple so we’ll probably just eat when we feel like it versus trying to eat at a specific time. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we’ll be able to take some evening rides on the bike.
What’s on your menu for the week?
