menu planning monday 05.11.09

Baseball season has seriously affected my menu planning and dinner preparation (which, I have found, go hand in hand).  We have eaten out way too much over the last few weeks, but I have received much help from my dear, sweet husband.  Thanks, Chef D!

So, with three weeks remaining in baseball season, here is my plan for the next week.  [Oh, and for those of you interested, Chef D and I are still working on our weightloss -- he has lost about 35 lbs and I have lost 25 lbs since the beginning of January!]

Monday: Soup and Salad [Chef D attending Men's Club dinner at church; Baseball Practice 5-6:30 pm]

Tuesday: Crockpot Rosemary-Garlic Chicken with steamed broccoli. Lemon Bars for our Bible Reading Group snack  [Guitar lessons 6-6:30 pm/Bible Reading group @ 7 pm]

Apprehension-Free Wednesday:  Sausage, peppers and onions with pinto beans ~or~ quiche with salad and dessert will be served at church prior to worship service.

Thursday: Meatball Sandwiches with crudites [Baseball Game at 7:15 pm]

FridaySpinach Pasta Toss (with added sausage) and fresh fruit with mint-balsamic tea; [Friday update:  The more I look at this pasta recipe, the less-appetizing it looks.  So, I think I will go with this Giada recipe instead Fusilli with Sausage, Artichokes and Sun-dried tomatoes -- since I have the items on hand for it!]

I will add our weekend menu plan in later in the week after conferring with Chef D on his plans.

Update:  We received a call Tuesday that this month's church supper club is scheduled for this Saturday.  So, that is where we will be!
