Menu Plan Monday

Our weekend ended up being pretty busy! Friday night I worked on getting items ready to sell at our local consignment sale. I am in the midst of what I like to call the Great Toy Purge 2010, so I had a lot to get ready. When I look at the pile of things to sell I can’t believe we had that much stuff in our play room. Of course, this purge should really extend to everything in the house, not just toys. But hey, it’s a start! Saturday night J told me his tummy hurt. And I, being the sympathetic mom that I am, totally thought it was an attempt to stall bedtime (hey, it’s happened many times before). I felt more than a little bad when he threw up half an hour later! He got sick several more times throughout the night, and it was so pitiful! He felt much better Sunday, thankfully – but man, what a weekend. I’m wondering if the week will be less busy than the weekend!

Speaking of the week – here’s what we’ll be eating:

Monday: I didn’t end up making the breakfast in a biscuit, so we’ll be doing that.

Tuesday: Chick Fil A or Jason’s Deli, though I’m not sure which yet. I’m also on the hunt for other places that do free kids’ meals so we can have some variety!

Wednesday: Gnocchi – when we make a batch, it makes a TON and we always freeze a large portion of it, so we’ll be having this. I’m not sure what sauce we’ll do yet, though. I read that Gorgonzola sauce is a really good pairing, so I might try that.

Thursday: Eating out – Thursday is my birthday! :)

Friday: Grilled chicken with sauteed carrots and brown rice – something nice and simple will be a great way to end the week.

Saturday: I’m not sure what we’ll have. I think we’ll be doing a game night with friends, so we’ll have to figure something out that we all like.

Have a fabulous week, everyone!

    Happy Birthday!! And may I recommend pesto to go with your gnocchi? We are trying to use up our basip harvest before the cold weather turns it into mush and pesto is great with Gnocchi…..make a double batch and you can freeze it for later!!
