Week 401 Menu

Hello there!  Happy Wednesday!  I'm finally getting around to planning my menu for the week.  Last weekend was filled with lots of food and lots of food planning.  

Friday we fed the missionaries and three of my husband's co-workers (+ a wife).  We had a nice 
hamburger, hot dog BBQ and topped it off with fresh chocolate pudding cookies (so good!)

Saturday my daughter invited 14 of her closest friends over for a birthday party.  We kept it as un-birthdayish as we could.  The girls brought their favorite things in lieu of a gift and they all traded, so they went home with a fun present.  The girls cooked their dinner over a fire (yes, we had hot dogs two nights in a row), had a giant salad and a smores bar for dessert.

Sunday was Easter and my daughter felt very passionately about having ham and funeral potatoes.  I attempted to cut bunny ears out of my one hour rolls like I had seen on pinterest, but they looked kind of creepy and rodent like, so I patted them back down so they looked edible.  

We have lots of fun Easter traditions.  Luck for me we've never really done the Easter bunny thing (one less thing to stress about).  We color eggs and the kids always have an egg hunt (or sometimes two) on Saturday or Sunday.  I draw little pictures of things around our house and stick them in color coordinated eggs to make a little treasure hunt.  The treasure this year was some Nike clothes that I bought at the outlet in November to save for Christmas and I found them last month.  Haha!  My four year old got a little Target shovel, which he is convinced had been hidden behind the TV for a long time.  

Anyway...I need to menu plan for the rest of this week to make life easier.  

Monday:  we had leftover Easter ham and funeral potatoes and whatever else the kids wanted (quesadilla, scrambled eggs, etc.)

Tuesday:  we had orange chicken (my kids FAVORITE meal)

Wednesday:  crockpot tomatillo chicken tacos

Thursday:  grilled pesto chicken & parmesan noodles, butternut squash

Friday:  cedar-planked grilled teriyaki salmon, cous cous or quinoa, green beans

Saturday:  grilled Greek chicken and tzatsiki sauce, warm rosemary flatbread and grilled veggies

Sunday:  grilled pork chops, orzo pilaf, roasted veggies

Next Monday:  clam-less chowder and french bread

Next Tuesday:  some kind of meatball and potatoes

All righty...that's what we're having this week.  What about you?  What's on your menu?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.
