I knew I wanted something special on Tuesday (it’s my birthday) and then I had a list of recipes I’d flagged from other menus I’ve seen – so it was just a matter of pulling it all together into a single list.
Big Girl is home sick today so I think I’m going to change my original plan and make some soup for tonight’s dinner. Here’s what’s on the agenda for the week:
- Pasta Fagioli (this is major comfort food for me – my grandma used to make this)
- Grilled steaks, boiled & buttered potatoes, steamed broccoli (This is my birthday dinner)
- Stir Fry Chicken (a friend made this for us for dinner Sunday night – it was yummy) I’ll make this with whole wheat pasta and maybe add some more stir-fry veggies.
She also made this for dessert – it was sooo good. I will be making it here at home as soon as I get the ingredients. I think I can make a sugar-free version that would be just as good. If you like Reese's peanut butter cups, you need to try this. It tastes like a cold, pudding version of a peanut butter cup.
- Meatball Subs (I’ll make a variation of this recipe and let the girls help me make the meatballs. I think they will like that.)
Friday, we will be eating out and the weekend will be filled with SuperMan’s high school reunion activities.
