Menu Plan Monday

Monday again?! I'm really not ready for this week. Last week was hard.. nothing went like it was supposed to and I'm terribly behind around here. I did manage to stick to my menu for almost the whole week and I'm really proud of myself. It took me three weeks to get to this point and now I have to embrace a new challenge. Tomorrow I will start working four hours a day and I need to figure out how to do that, and keep up on everything around here, and still find time to write. Everyone in this house is going to have to pitch in... and everyone seems to be willing right now. Zane is actually excited to take over some of the cooking. Sunday afternoon he sent me an email (he knows how to get my attention!) with his menu and grocery list for Thursday.
  • Monday - Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup, Ham or Turkey and Cheese Pannini, Salad

  • Tuesday - Turkey Meatloaf, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, Green Beans

  • Wednesday - Spiced Roast Pork, Baked Yams, Rice, Spiced Apples

  • Thursday - ZANE COOKS! Lasagne, Salad, and Homemade Ice Cream for dessert.

  • Friday - Shredded Beef and Potato Soup, Tortillas

  • Saturday - Bob Cooks

  • Sunday - To be determined later

Wow. I am very impressed. Your meal plan is AMAZING. My 10 year old is showing a little bit of interest in helping prepare dinner at the moment, but we are still at the "you can stir the pot" or "you can slice the bread - carefully!" stage. Nowhere near making an entire meal.
I hope he keeps it up, although I understand that at his age, things can go from thrilling-to-very-lame at a blink of an eye?!
Good luck with your new job!

Thanks Heidi,
Zane has always been interested in cooking. When he was four he used to beg to watch the Food Channel while he was supposed to be napping. He's mostly a typical teenager but he can be very helpful when he wants to be.
