Menu Plan Monday




What a weekend we have had! Ice storms, stomach flu, runny noses, coughing, more snow to shovel, fevers, several power outages and did I mention lots of coughing, occasional moans from the two adults, several games of Clue and Sorry and lots of this was accomplished.

With all that, I think secretly aside from not feeling well, we all wish we could stay in this place a little longer. The kids wanted the power to stay off so that we could continue to play and read by oil lamp and candles. The days are long and uninterrupted by schedules and we are enjoying being together.

Amazingly, it is Monday and I have a plan for the week of what to prepare for my family. Last week, I was planning to make the Swiss Chicken Bake and I had mistakenly taken out a bag of chicken wings from the freezer instead of chicken breasts, so we had barbeque wings. So, I am going to try the recipe this week.

Monday: Swiss Chicken Bake and salad

Tuesday edited: We have been invited out yippee!
Tacos will have to wait :)

Wednesday Potato Soup with baked bread

Thursday Chuck Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Steamed Veggies

Friday Pizza Night

Saturday Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken, garlic bread and salad

Sunday Chili and Corn Bread

I love how you put a positive "spin" on everything your family has had going on. Oh, my! I really hope you're feeling better. Your menu sounds great! Have a blessed (and better!) week, friend.

The being sick doesn't sound fun but the games and reading by oil lamp sound like it just might have been a good time. Sorta like a "little house on the prairie" kind of thing happening.

Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Your menu sounds good!

Jennifer said...

Wow--I think I'm inviting myself over this week. It all sounds good.

I hope everyone is feeling much better soon. Wintertime seems to bring along colds and flu. Ugh!

it was really nice of God to slow us all down and focus on the joy of being together, although i am really going to miss the bible study tomorrow. it is great...

Our kids didn't want the electricity on either.
I love (there's that word again) seeing what you are serving up at the table. We enjoy our time around the table, too. With my job so crazy, I am looking for some good crockpot recipes. I would love to see some if you have any family pleasers.

I sure hope your family is on the mend now!
And that Fettuccine Alfredo and Swiss Chicken bake sound delicious! I usually open a box of pasta-roni, -LOL- but I'd love to start making more meals from scratch!
Blessings!
