menu planning monday 04.27.09

Life has been a little hectic lately now that we are in the full swing of baseball season.  I don't even remember if I cooked a meal at all last week.  We ate out too much -- I know that much...too many calories!  

So, I asked Chef D (my sweet husband, for those who are new to the blog), to help me out this week.  And, he obliged:) He even did the grocery shopping tonight so that we have everything we need.  I love that man.

Monday:  Alton Brown's Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes (Chef D preparing while I take one child to baseball practice and the other to his school's art fair)

Tuesday:  Grilled pork chops with long-grain/wild rice and a tossed salad

Apprehension-Free Wednesday:  Pork roast, vegetable medley, sweet potato casserole, salad and dessert will be served at church (with pizza for the kiddos).

Thursday:  Grilled portobello mushrooms, grilled pineapple and leftover rice from Tuesday (I always make too much!)

Friday:  Scrapbooking night for me/Boy's night out for 'the boys'!
