menu planning monday 05.18.2009

This is the last week of school for my boys, so we have several end-of-the-school-year events to attend as well as more baseball practices and games.  Last week's menu planning definitely helped get throught the week with reduced stress and kept us from the inclination to eat fast-food or pick up burgers at the ball park concession stand. 

I am in the process of trying to use up some items that have been in the freezer and pantry for awhile.  This weeks usage: hamburger patties, frozen fries, frozen scallops, frozen steak, boxed linguini mix, yellow cake mix, and cheese biscuit mix.

Chef D and I had another successful week of weight loss:  he lost 4 lbs and I lost 2 lbs! 

Monday: Hamburgers and french fries [baseball practice 5-6:30 pm]

Tuesday: Bacon wrapped scallops with linguini alfredo;  blueberry mini-dump cakes for bible group dessert [guitar lessons at 6 pm; bible reading group at 7 pm]

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: Ham, green bean casserole, potatoes with onions, salad and dessert will be served at church prior to the prayer service.

Thursday: Spaghetti with meatballs [baseball game at 6 pm]

Friday: Grilled steak with baked potato, tossed salad and cheese biscuits
