Menu Monday

(We have been LOVING this buttermilk dressing lately--yum!)

My husband has been out of town most of this month--and let me tell you being a single Momma of 5 boys is exhausting! I have to admit that I have not been the best at sticking to my weekly menus lately. I am so happy that it is almost February and we will have a Daddy home again! Yipee! Anyway, I am in survival mode and this weeks menu is simple and quick! I am up to my eyeballs in organization projects, namely a re-vamp of my Family Command Center and job chart. My boys have been so busy with basketball and wrestling since the New Year that we have let things slide. I am ready to get back on track and have more help with keeping the house clean and tidy. I find that I am a much sweeter Mom when my house is not a wreck, you know?! Plus I think it is vital that boys learn to do housework.

I am sure their future wives will thank me someday:)

Monday--Costco rotisserie chicken, rolls, buttermilk dressing, greens, carrots and cucumber spears. Family Home Evening treat--Blue Bell ice cream cones

Tuesday--Whole Wheat Spaghetti and meatballs from the freezer with bottled sauce from the pantry, sauteed zucchini, green salad, tangerines

Wednesday--Quesidillas with chicken (leftover rotisserie) and black beans, chips and salsa, apple slices

Thursday--Tuscan lentil soup, muffins from the freezer--unless my boys end up with a Wrestling match that night and then it will be breakfast burritos in the car:)

Friday--Pizza -from the local pizzeria--served with baby spinach, carrots and cucumbers

Saturday--Leftovers, or nachos for boys--DATE NIGHT for Mom and Dad (can not wait:)

Sunday--Super Bowl FOOD--lots of fun appetizers! woo hoo!
We had some sunny days here in the South over the weekend--it was heaven:)
Hope ya'll have a happy week!
