Menu Plan Monday 10/06 to 10/14

Okay, okay, today is not Monday.  In fact today is only Saturday, which means this is either 5 days late or 2 days early.  I choose to believe I am  not an overachiever who is getting her menu on two days early!

So the weather here in town has been starting to turn cooler.  Mornings have been in the 40s and the afternoons in the 70s.  I ♥ this sort of weather.  The leaves on our trees in the yard are even already starting to turn gold and drift to the ground.

The past week and a half has been a pretty busy one.  Both of my kids have been under the weather.  My first grader, Ashton, was the initial sicko.  He came down with a horrible cold (in his case, every cold is horrible.  He always cough so hard he vomits, which is super nice for mom aka me).  Poor kid missed two days of school and was really down and out of commission for about 4 days.  In kid time, that is practically a year.

Then of course Sydney caught what Ashton has.  I am not sure why, but us girls (me and Sydney) have always been pretty resilient when it comes to being sick.  She was down for a day and then back in the action the next.  This morning she's been coughing a little, but truly, she is still in pretty good shape.

Things are looking up this next week though as for the kiddos being healthy.  They both have regained most of their abundant energy, so things should be pretty normal this week, I hope.

Due to the sickness we've had the past week or so, menu planning has been one of the last things on my mind.  Trying to decide what to make for the next week is hard to concentrate on when little ones need your attention. 

So here is the menu plan for the next week and 2 days for my family.

Grilled Bacon and Cheese Sandwiches
Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Chicken Fajitas

French Fries
(This really is just a back-up plan.  Hubby has been talking about doing steaks, but he hasn't really made up his mind yet, so just in case he changes his mind, we have a plan)

Chili Mac Casserole
Cornbread Muffins

Ham Steaks
Mashed Potatoes


Homemade Pizza

Rosemary Honey Glazed Whole Roasted Chicken

Thai Peanut Stirfry
