Menu Plan Monday 11/9/09

It has been a while since I have written out our weekly menu plan! Here's my list of dinner ideas for this week:

~ Oven-baked chicken thighs with parmesan risotto (adults), roasted garlic mashed potatoes (kids), and veggies (asparagus for the adults, peas for the kids).

~ Coca-cola pork roast in the crockpot with boiled red potatoes and corn.

~ Lazy Mom's goulash over rice.

~ Hot turkey sandwiches (open faced, thick-sliced turkey sandwiches) with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and green beans.

~ Pinto beans and shredded pork.

Happy Halloween!

Nicholas was Zurg (from Toy Story).
Cecilia was a homemade bee (melt your heart moment, while I was making her costume she hugged me and said "you're the bestest mom ever, making me a costume instead of just buying it)... she wanted to be a bee because "I want to get back at all those stupid bees that sting me". Love that seven year old's logic. (Antenna and wings from the 99c store)
Abigail was a witch - she used last year's costume again, we just added a pair of witch costume pants underneath to make it a little longer.
Sabrina was a "vampire fairy".
Nathanial was the "candy cop" and spent the evening handing out candy to all of the trick or treaters... after setting up speakers, a strobe light, a black light, and a fog machine. Our house was a hit.
