Menus for the first week of Fall
Happy First Day of Fall!!!!!! This is my very favorite time of year and I plan to post a different touch of Fall found in my home every day this week. The post for Monday will also be a "Heart Strings" post.
I'm planning my meals for this week. I have to admit that I haven't been planning my meals ahead of time and this past week I became very stressed out about it. My son had to work 4 days in a row night shift Monday through Thursday of last week. This meant that he was going to be leaving for work at 6:20 P.M. I get home from work at 5:20 P.M. CRUNCH TIME!!! I have to get organized for these days. He only works this schedule once a month, but I don't intend to be so unprepared again! We have not been buying the frozen and canned fast food he usually fills up on and he hadn't had time to go shopping for his own food since he was working all night and sleeping most of the day, so he was extremely hungry by the time I got home each day. He was so hungry in fact that he called me on my cell phone on the way home from work 2 days to see "what are we having to eat, I'm starving!".
Menus for 9/22/07 through 9/28/07:
Saturday: Clam Chowder and saltine crackers. (lunch)
Sunday: Crock pot roast with potatoes, onions and green pepper strips, Broccoli and cheese and Challah Bread. The bread kneads and rises in the bread machine and then I take it out, braid it and bake in the oven. The second picture above is a challah bread that I made last Christmas. The first picture was our Sunday dinner today. It was a pretty big roast, so there will be plenty of planned overs for later this week. I enjoy the bread machine, especially for pizza crusts and this Challah Bread.
For supper there is planned over lasagna or clam chowder. It will be "fend for yourself"
Monday: Crock Pot BBQ Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese, corn from the freezer.
Tuesday: "Planned over" roast, homemade mashed potatoes and peas, planned over corn.
Wednesday:Hotdogs with fixins, baked beans.
Thursday: Vegetable soup using left over peas and corn, ground beef, etc.
Friday: Hubby's night to cook!!! (I think it'll be pork chops)
