Meng Menu

I was racing to get grocery shopping done yesterday. I squeezed it in between church and meeting with a friend for coffee at 2:30. As much of a chore menu planning, coupon “clicking,” and shopping for two weeks is, IT IS DONE for two weeks. Such a relief. 
I spent around $250 this week (Budget: $300) which included 3 toothbrushes, shampoo and conditioner for me, and paper towels. Not bad, not bad. 
Sunday: Sesame Chicken Pot stickers, rice w/ veggies (New recipe on the pot stickers. Fun but labor intensive! Plus, holy cow, I know now why they call them pot STICKERS…)
Monday: Hot dogs, chips, apple and orange slices
Tuesday: Slow cooked pulled pork sandwiches, baked fries, carrots and celery
Wednesday: Grilled pork chops, baked beans, salad
Thursday: Roast beef, mashed potatoes, green beans
Friday: Out to eat

Saturday: Roast beef sandwiches, chips, fruit salad
Sunday: Sloppy joes, baked fries, Green beans
Monday: Pulled pork sandwiches, chips, carrots and celery
Tuesday:  Grilled pork chops, roasted red potatoes, salad
Wednesday: Parmesan chicken, parmesan rice, broccoli
Thursday: Spaghetti, salad
Friday: Out to eat
Saturday: Chicken w/mustard cream sauce, rice, broccoli 

If you read our menus frequently, you might see some repeat dinnersum, sloppy joes? That is because Sloppy Joes are Aaron’s favorite meal. Yep. Low maintenance, that man. He could eat them every day. That, and hot dogs, which Micah says is his favorite meal. I, on the other hand, love to try new meals and have a bit more of a “foodie” palate. So…I try to keep my men happy while also preparing recipes I like too. 

How do you keep your family happy at dinner time?
