menu planning monday 12.15.08

I feel like I barely cooked at all last week, with all the holiday gatherings on the schedule.  I am happy to report that this week looks more like a regular week.  

Monday:  This will be a busy day, including picking up my daughter from college and bringing her home for the holidays.  In her honor, we will have one of her favorites, Chicken Noodle Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

Tuesday:  Crockpot Honey Mustard Shortribs with mashed potatoes and tossed salad (probably the crockpot berry cobbler dessert that is on the shortribs link, too!)

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: Dinner at church will be roast beef, mashed potatoes, peas, salad and dessert.

Thursday: Barb's Crockpot Fajitas (I'll use boneless chicken thighs) with Tijuana Kitchen Rice (we loved this the first time I made it)

Friday:  Kid's Choice Night of hamburger, tater tots, and cole slaw.

Sous-Chef Saturday:  I'll pitch in to help Chef D after I get home from taking Lauren for our annual Christmas Mother-Daughter outing at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.

Hospitality Sunday: Chef D's Chili (we didn't do this last week as planned, so we will try one more time).

Thank you for checking out my menu this week!  Don't forget to look at all the great menu ideas at OrgJunkie:)
