Menu 5/23 - 5/29

Monday, May 23, 2011

It's been a LOOOOOOOONG week at our house (a car needing thousands of dollars of repairs in the same week as our other car getting totaled will do that to you).   I'm starting this week with trepidation as we wait to hear the verdict from the insurance company on our crashed car and a second opinion on the other car needing repairs.  I'm hoping somewhere during the week to squeeze in a long nap, because my brain needs all the restorative, sanity building time it can manage!

Enough with the complaining, here's this week's menu: 

MONDAY--Mushroom, Asparagus, Walnut Pasta--with mushrooms and asparagus in it, I'm still in shock that this is one of my kids' favorite meals. 

Ice Cream in a Bag (no ice cream maker required)--My kids absolutely love this do-it-yourself ice cream for a family home evening treat

TUESDAY--Zucchini Soup-- I'm missing all the soups in our menu, so thought this one would be a good warm weather one this week
Braided Bread-- a new easy bread my family loves

WEDNESDAY--Mango Quinoa Salad with grilled chicken(new)
Freshly Squeezed Orange-Lime-Lemonade--This stuff is crazy good and so, so perfect for a hot day

THURSDAY--Chicken and Bean Baked Taquitos--it's going to be a crazy night, so this super easy/healthy meal will be just the ticket!

Whole-Grain Oatmeal Waffles (made as pancakes) with Buttermilk Caramel Syrup---We love these healthy, whole grain waffles
Grilled Hot Dogs and Burgers
Dad's Coleslaw--the yummiest way to eat some cabbage!

SATURDAY--Quiche Lorraine--a hearty breakfast for a day when all the kids' activities are canceled for Memorial Day weekend
Daddy's Special Grilling Marinade (new)

Dinner:  TBD
Dessert:  Orange Jello Cream Cake--a cool treat for a summer day (sometimes we make ours lime instead of orange)

Hey, it sounds like you caught our family's bad luck. This past week was thankfully quiet, but the one before, not so much. On Tuesday, my hubby cracked a rib at work, and the next day he was in a car accident (his fault, two other vehicles involved). Granted, I know precious little about computers and the Internet work, but this could only have happened through my following your blog. The bad luck must have traveled to you via cyberspace. So, sorry!

Ohhh, these sound so great! I like the taquitos and the mango quinoa salad with grilled chicken sounds great! Zucchini soup is something I might need to do this week...I still have about 10 large bags of frozen zucchini in my freezer from LAST year!
