Menu Plan Monday - 9/20/10

Menu Plan Monday -  Another week?  I'll try to write this quick while the baby (the one that's turning two next month) is still napping. 

Spaghetti and Meatballs
Monday - Spaghetti and Meatballs (leftovers from Sunday)

Tuesday - Not sure yet.  Miss D has her first Nutcracker rehearsal that night after dance class, so it'll be a quick bite out, I think.  Maybe Amici's?

Wednesday - Erev Sukkot - Lemon Thyme Chicken on the grill and carrot/rutabega puree.  Hoping to make either Sticky Toffee pudding (mini ones) or Gingerbread cake.  I'm hoping that we can tame the wasp situation in the backyard, so that we can eat outside.  Also, need to make ice cream custard to chill for homemade ice cream.

Shredded BBQ Beef Sandwiches
Thursday - Mom coming for a visit.  Airport run and soccer night.  Getting out both crock-pots.  One for BBQ Shredded Beef sandwiches and the other for baked sweet potatoes.  I tried the crock-pot for regular potatoes the other week and it was so amazing, I have to try it with sweet potatoes.  Also, need to make the vanilla ice cream for Friday night.  So, either Thusday morning or Friday (at the latest), so it can harden and ripen in the freezer.

Friday - Grilled pizza, something easy that we can make early.  Ice Cream Social at Miss D's school.
