Menu Plan Monday

I’m BACK!  Did you miss me?  Well, I guess I wasn’t really gone exactly, just not posting my weekly menus, but I am back today with a vengeance.  Woo hoo!  C & I both took off from our jobs the week between Christmas and New Year’s and it was so needed for both of us.  C did do quite a bit of work from home, but the main thing was that he actually got to stay home.  A full week with no alarm clock blaring in the morning, just the sound of our four-legged, fuzzy alarm clock to “gently” wake us up.  Believe me, Ellie made sure that we weren’t too lazy in the mornings. 

Last Monday, I started cleaning house and I don’t think I actually finished until Saturday.  It was nice to be able to do a few jobs each day and not have to cram it all in to one or two days.  We had a wonderful Christmas with our families, but when that last dinner was over, I went to work.  The decorations came down and this house was scrubbed top to bottom.  Whew, I was tired but so satisfied with what I accomplished. 

Wow, this post is getting a little wordy, isn’t it?  Let’s save the rest of these thoughts for Thoughtful Thursday.  Here’s the food scoop for this week:

Grilled hamburgers and oven baked fries

Cheesy Steak Sandwiches with oven fries (Hopefully this will cover 2 nights.)

Pizza Pancakes with Dipping Sauce (new)

Baked Ziti with garlic bread (new)

Pizza night
