Here’s what’s for dinner at our house this week. You may notice that my dishes look a little more involved and possibly not budget friendly as some, but I make it work by cooking most of the items from scratch AND I love to cook! I also get paid to cook for a friend who works full time, so some of the dishes are her choices.
You might also notice that I don’t eat beef. My husband, on the other hand, does. But I’m the cook, so I get to choose. My parents spoil him plenty when they come to town.
Tuesday – Pizza (homemade dough) with sausage (save 1/2 sausage for Saturday’s meal), olives, and cheese.
Thursday – Dinner Club — a group of 4 families meet weekly for dinner. We trade houses every week and have for 8 years now! Thankfully, it’s not my week!
Friday – Asian Turkey lettuce wraps
Saturday – Hashbrown quiche with fruit and salad
Sunday – Sausage & Spinach pasta bake*
And just for those who like a complete meal plan, I’ll let you in on what’s for breakfast and lunch:
Lunches – Quesadilla’s, PB, Cream Cheese, or Grilled Cheese sandwiches (on homemade bread), Gardenburgers from Costco
Special Snacks – I LOVE to bake and have to restrain myself, but it’s fun to make a treat every once in a while. I’m planning on diving into the pumpkin to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies.
