Week 250 Menu and a GIVEAWAY!

NOTE (10/30/13):  If you've tried to leave a comment to enter the giveaway, but it won't work, just leave me a comment on facebook and I'll enter you.  You have until 9 pm tonight to enter.  Thanks!
Happy Monday everyone!  This week is my #250th menu.  I started my blog back in 2008 and haven't missed many weeks since then unless I've been on vacation or had a baby.  

To celebrate the big #250, I thought I'd have a giveaway.  It's small, but hey, maybe you'll win.  :)  Your odds are pretty good.  The giveaway is for a years subscription to the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. 
This is one of my favorite magazines.  I have a few other magazines that I subscribe to, like Family Fun, and some parenting magazines, but sometimes they go straight into the magazine rack unread.  I always read Better Homes and Gardens then.  I love the decorating ideas and recipes. The gardening section makes me want to go crazy with plants in my yard.  I haven't yet though.

Here are the giveaway details.  To enter, just let me know in the comment section what you're making for dinner tonight (or if you don't have it planned yet, just tell me what you ate for dinner last night, even if it was a grilled cheese).  The giveaway ends soon...this Wednesday, October 30th, so enter quickly. 

For a bonus entry like my blog on facebook and let me know in a comment.  Or if you already follow me on facebook, just tell me that in a comment. 

All right.  Menu time!

Monday: sausage, pepper, potato bake

Tuesday: chicken tetrazinni

Wednesday: smothered sweet pork burritos

Thursday:  clam chowder in bread bowls, hot dog mummies for the kids

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday: easy night

Sunday: ham, potato casserole, green beans, yummy crescent rolls

What are you making this week?  Don't forget to enter the giveaway.  (Even if you already have a BHG subscription feel free to comment and tell me what you're making for dinner tonight.  I love new ideas!)


Just for fun, check out my menus from one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, four years ago, five years ago.


  1. We are having chicken tacos tonight and we had pumpkin pancakes last night.

  2. I'm making Honey-Hoisin Chicken with Rice http://mycrazydeliciousness.blogspot.com/2011/11/honey-hoisin-chicken-with-rice.html. I always make a little more sauce and add veggies to it to make it more like a stir fry.

  3. I also already like your Facebook page!

  4. I haven't been commenting very well lately, nor have I been menu-planning well. We are eating but it's always a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants dinner. I sort of feel like I can barely keep my head above water lately! When does four kids get easier?? This baby doesn't nap nearly as well as I'd like! :-P Good thing he's CUTE!

    M: We're getting pizza for my husband's birthday tonight! (And I like your Facebook page, so enter me into your giveaway -- how fun! And congrats on 250 menus; that's impressive!)

    T: special Scouting event at the church (our stake is providing dinner!) (And since it's hot dogs and I'm competing for dinner with a bunch of hungry boys, we might be getting cold cereal after the broadcast! Or maybe Taco Bell.)

    W: spinach tortellini

    Th: grilled cheese and tomato soup (something easy and relatively healthy that ALL the kids will eat before they gorge on Halloween candy)

    F: husband will be out of town, but I need something healthy for me to eat as leftovers through the weekend (I never want to cook on the weekend!). Maybe I'll make some chicken lime soup and rolls (I have a great recipe that I will post on my blog when I get the chance!)

    Sa: easy night

    Su: easy night

    Boy, this week is not shaping up to be a great cooking week ... maybe I can get some housework done instead??

  5. Your amazing pot roast recipe is what we had for dinner last night. Tonight we will be eat cinnamon rolls the size of planets :) healthy I know!

  9. We are having Sloppy Joes for dinner tonight! And I like you on Facebook. And I like you in real life! I hope I win!! (Am I excluded from this because I am family?)

  10. I am making your famous White Chicken Chili...requested by everyone but especially by Jonah. : )

  11. Tonight we had slow-cooker lasagna with salad and rolls... it turned out fine, but I believe I prefer oven cooked lasagna, even if it means having to cook the noodles first. Last night we had Rakott Krumply (a Hungarian potato-egg-sauasage bake).

  12. Tonight we made your french bread recipe to have with pasta and it turned out great! Thanks for doing your blog :-)

  13. Tonight it was scrambled eggs and bacon.
