Menu Monday

I missed last week - things were crazy around here!  Anny had a phone interview on Tuesday, but I was at a work meeting so a friend came over to play with Abby then they went out to dinner.  The rest of the week we stuck to the plan, though.

Yesterday we went to a fun party based around frozen dinners.  Will do a whole blog post about that because it earned it, and will include a recipe for a slow cooker stew that was requested on Facebook!

So, this week there is a special Daddy/Daughter night at Chick-Fil-A in Columbia, so I'll be taking Abby there.  We got the last spot, so it's pretty popular and I am open to seeing what they do with it!  Also a change this week is that we let Abby pick up okra at the Farmer's Market on Saturday.  She was excited to see something new, and we are trying to try new things this year, so we got enough for a side for dinner.  Will probably do that with the brisket.

Here is our plan this week:

Sunday: Out with the big family - 11 of us at the table!
Monday: Frozen Stroganoff on Egg Noodles
Tuesday: Daddy/Daughter dinner/Anny out with a friend
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Brisket (recipe over at Sarahlynn's Blog)
Thursday: Family Dinner
Friday: Pancakes
Saturday: Kabobs

In looking at our freezer yesterday morning in preparation for the Frozen Meal Party I noticed that we have things in there that we have had for a while and really need to eat, so our plan next week should include the use of frozen crab meat! 

What are you eating?  What is in your freezer that you have been avoiding or forgetting about?  What are you going to do with it?


  1. Rob, I like that you plan out dinner in advance. It makes <a href=">family dinners</a> easier to manage when you know before 5 pm what you're going to have.
    Tonight we're having turkey burgers with roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts.
