This Week in Food :)

My menu plan is going to be very simple this week for a simple reason - my husband will only be home for dinner a couple of nights. And while I do cook for the kids (most of the time :)), I make it easy and we eat leftovers. You can guess which meals will be for when Andrew is home. :)

- Pizza, Apples, Carrots

- Mac 'n Cheese, Steamed Veggies, Applesauce

- Sweet n' Tangy Pot Roast, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Sauteed Zuchini, Spinach Salad (w/oranges, red onion, almonds & homemade vinaigrette)

- Eggs, Toast, Tangerines

- Pasta, Garlic Bread, Salad

- Egg Casserole (bacon, swiss, & spinach and sausage & cheddar), Hashbrown Casserole, muffins, coffee cake, fruit salad, juice, coffee, tea, & hot chocolate (this will be the brunch for a little more than 20 people on Sunday after Titus' baptism)

That's it. Easy, easy. The roast goes in the crockpot and the mac 'n cheese may or may not be from a box :). I am hoping to do some baking and candy making this week - butter pecan fudge, peanut clusters, and maybe some chocolate fudge and some kind of cookies - we'll see how the week goes. This week I made chex mix, muddy buddies, and sugar cookies.

Check out for more menu plans! Have a great week!

It's hard when your husband isn't home. Mine works rotating shifts, so I know the feeling well. Good luck!

Your menu sounds really good this week. And that hashbrown casserole? I am definitely going to be making that soon.
