Week 259 & 260 Menu

Hi friends!  How was your New Year's?  I haven't made it onto the computer much this week.  I've checked my email on my tablet, but it's been too busy to sit down at the desktop computer.  I've been thinking of things to post about all week, but blogging took a back seat.

Hopefully this week I'll blog a little more.  First I have to find the bottom of the huge clean laundry pile and clean my house.  

Since every blog post is better with a picture, here's one of our Christmas dinner. 
See those crystal glasses?  We got them for our wedding 12 years ago and I'd never used them before this past Thanksgiving.  I don't know what I've been waiting for, but I figured that we might as well use them.  We only have four glasses and have six people in our family, but oh well. 

Last week we took a little trip to Colorado Springs to visit some cousins.  It was a nice little break, but it was long enough to realize how NOT fun it is to travel with a one year old.  My little baby guy cried a lot during the drive, woke up several times at night, and didn't really want to be away from me during the day.  It was nice to come home and have him take great naps and sleep all night.  It was fun to be with family though.  It's great that my sister-in-law, Annelisa, is a fabulous cook! 

I meant to post my menu last week, so I'll do it now...

Monday: sandwiches

Tuesday: New Year's Eve appetizers and treats

Wednesday: my sis-in-law made yummy broccoli cheese soup and I made french bread

Thursday:  pizza

Friday:  tacos

Saturday: Italian chicken sausage with pasta and veggies

Sunday:  Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, green salad w/homemade ranch dressing, fruit, broccoli, one hour rolls

Now menu time for this week.

Monday: BBQ Asian Chicken w/whole wheat couscous

Tuesday:  chicken tortilla soup

Wednesday: baked potato soup

Thursday: honey lime chicken enchiladas

Friday: chicken pot pie

Saturday: easy night

Sunday:  lasagna, breadsticks, salad

What are you making this week?  Or if you haven't menu planned yet, what did you eat last week?

Have a great week!

Just for fun, check out my menus from:


  1. How were your melting potatoes? We ended up serving ours from a slow cooker which changed them a bit, but we still thought they were tasty.

  2. Hey Jenny,
