Menu for the week

I know that today is Tuesday and I should have gone grocery shopping but a friend invited me to go shopping so I did that instead. :-) Tomorrow I will tackle the job of grocery shopping for the week. So here ya' go, here is my menu.

Tuesday - Leftover turkey with Gravy, cranberries, carrots, and mashed potatoes

Wednesday - Sloppy Joes and Fruit Cocktail

Thursday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, Garlic Bread and choice of salad or green beans

Friday - PIZZA and a movie night

Saturday - Marinated Steak (will search food network for a new recipe), some form of potato, and grilled asparagus

Super Bowl Sunday - Cuban Burgers, Spinach and Artichoke dip with chips, Brownies, and whatever else we decide to munch on while watching football!

Monday - Grilled Chicken with Salsa or BBQ, Roast potatoes, Corn

Should be a good week with a lot of food that the kids will eat without to much complaining! Sloppy Joes are something we eat on a pretty regular basis and something we all love! Spaghetti is also an easy family favorite!

Friday night pizza night NEVER changes. This is my one free night off of cooking! I look forward to Fridays so much! When I was a little girl my parents would put a big sheet on the living room floor, order good Chicago pizza, and then we would sit and watch The Dukes Of Hazard! I look back on those pizza nights and just remember how much I loved it! It was the one night of the week that we were aloud to have pop with dinner and that we could eat in the living room. I have such fond memories of those pizza nights and wanted to continue the tradition with my kiddos. We don't watch The Dukes of Hazard anymore but instead pick a different movie each week. We always have pizza while watching the movie and I let the kids each have one can of pop on Friday nights! It may not be good Chicago pizza but it is so relaxing and the perfect end to the week/start to the weekend!

The Dukes! On Saturday nights we used to watch Hee Haw and then later my mom made candied popcorn balls and we got to have pop and watch the Disney movie of the week. Thanks for sharing your menu, this is how I build my menus list ideas...by copying! Love LOVE your background. Pretty.

Sounds yummy :). I love the Friday pizza & movie night idea, too! Y'all don't order pizza on the first Thursday of the month for the school fundraiser though? That's what would mess us up b/c we always order then & it's the only time we order for the month. =/

Sabrina, we don't do the Dominoes fundraiser thing for the school because I am to set in my ways. :-) Not to mention, I don't really care for Dominoes. Friday nights we do frozen pizza a lot of times instead of ordering out. It's probably a 60/40 split and you know I order Jersey Joes when we do order out! :-)

I don't care for Dominos now that they've changed their recipe, yuck. But Jr always begs us to get it so that one time a month we order. The things we do for our kids! LOL And I still haven't gotten around to trying Jersey Joes! I forget about it, lol.
