Weekly Menu 3/7-3/13

How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had some good weather and got some quality time in with family and friends. We had my family over for dinner on Saturday and it was so much fun. I made a Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake and it was sooo good. I will blog it soon, I promise :)

 On Sunday, after church, I took my eldest daughter Gracie out for an afternoon date. We got drinks at Starbucks and since Old Navy was having such a great stock up sale, I got her a few Spring/Summer items that she was needing, and we picked out an outfit for Eden, and even I got a dress because I had a giftcard :) And then we went to Ross to wander around since the Mall was going to close soon and had such a blast wandering around looking at everything. She played with the Toys and found some things she might want for her birthday and I found two more Rachael Ray baking items…a longer baking sheet and a 9 in baking pan, and then I found this beautiful serving bowl ( I am always in need of serving platters because I don’t have any) and I took a picture and sent it to Josh and he liked it, so I picked that up too. She and I had a blast. We came home, and Josh was about to start dinner, which was Crepes and he tried out a new recipe that was incredible! We took pictures so that is on the blog horizon too.

We’re all on vacation till Wednesday. Josh goes back to work on Thursday and I think the plan is for today to go to the zoo since it’s nice out. It’s been so long since we’ve seen the sun that we want to take advantage of it.

The Menu this week…isn’t really in order…when Josh is on vacation, we kind of wing it and we have plans for his brother and sisters to come over one night to finish the Lord of the Rings trilogy. So, we might stray away from a meal that night and fix something else. It just depends. Also…Josh and I have decided to dub our Saturday nights as Sandwich Saturdays. It’s a quick, delicious, and creative way to make a meal and with sandwiches, the ideas are endless.

Josh’s Vodka Penne…sooo good!
Polynesian Chicken with Roasted Asparagus and rice
Shepard’s Pie with a salad and Garlic Bread
Lentil Loaf- ROFLW ( Roll over from Last week) with green beans
Crockpot Minestrone Soup and I’m going to attempt to make homemade rolls in my mixer. 
Monte Cristo Sandwiches and Chips
I’ll be making my own pie crust tho.
I know last week, I had said I was going to make the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. But Chocolate Wafers are hard to find and the Blueberry Cheesecake I made just ended up working out better. I had everything already on hand except for the cream cheese.  This week, I don’t have much on the list. I might make cookies, but I haven’t decided which ones yet…
Desserts and Treats
Maybe my Grandmother’s Molasses cookies??
