Mmm. Don't these cookies look good? Well, they are pretty yummy so stay tuned after I post my menu for the recipe.

I didn't do a great job of sticking to my menu last week. Hopefully this week I'll actually make the things that I've planned. Here's my menu:

Monday: Spaghetti

Tuesday: Navajo tacos

Wednesday: BBQ chicken sandwiches

Thursday: Swedish Meatballs w/IKEA gravy and potatoes

Friday: Sweet & Sour Chicken w/Rice

Saturday: 4th of July! I'm sure we'll BBQ.

Sunday: Chicken Tetrazinni
