Menu Planning Monday

What a crazy week we had. We ate way to much on Memorial Day with some of our family visiting. My dad, husband, son and I got to go golfing Monday morning. I probably haven't golfed in 10 years, but it was so fun. I even birdied the final hole. Very exciting. We also took the family to see Kung Foo Panda II. Pretty funny!

Tuesday, our son went through the temple in preparation for his mission. That was definitely my happiest day so far as a parent. After we tried out a new restaurant called "La Parilla Suiza". It touts the food of Mexico City, which is where my son will be serving our church for 2 years. Super yummy!

Wednesday was my birthday. 21 again (x 2). I had lunch and dinner out with my honey. Lucky girl.

Thursday our 3 older kids left on a pioneer trek.

My point to all this is that I did not cook a meal until Sunday when we celebrated my sons 19th birthday. He wanted anything that we could have mashed potatoes and gravy with, so we had pork roast. It is my go to crock pot meal because I cannot eat beef. My kids barely know what beef looks like except for the occasional steak that gets grilled.

This week will be slightly better except for the fact that my husband and I are taking a little trip. I will write about it next week. I am planning meals for the kids, but what happens when mom and dad are away is sometimes kept secret.

Monday: pulled pork sandwiches (from leftover pork roast)
Tuesday: ground turkey quesadillas
Wednesday:skillet chicken parmesan
Thursday:take out before we head to the airport
Friday: spinach ravioli (from costco)
Saturday: pizza night
Sunday: kiddos looking for family to feed them. (We will be home late)
