I've finally gotten up the nerve to restart my Weekly Menu Planning. So far, this school year has proven to be quite difficult as far as the Rices sitting down for a meal together. Last year, we had one night a week that nothing was going on. This year, we have none. On Mondays, Jonathan has soccer from 6:15-7:30. Tuesdays, there is Jonathan's student council and guitar until 6. Wednesday is another soccer practice for Jonathan, this time from 5-6:15. On Thursdays, we struggle with yet another one of Jonathan's soccer practices from 7:30-8:45 and Porter's football from 5:30-6:30. The weekend finally arrives and we get a breather. Saturdays and some Sundays are chock full of soccer and football. Add to this church service, youth group for Jonathan and yet another Football practice for Porter on Sunday and we're finally done!
Because of our busy schedule and that of the other families we do our MR2 dinner with, we have decided to change it from Sunday night to Friday night. Making it a bit more casual and instituting a Happy Hour/Appetizer feel. This first week will be my turn and I can't wait! In the meantime, here's what I've got cooking this week...
Monday: Shrimp and Grits Casserole; lima beans
Tuesday: Chicken packets; broccoli
Wednesday: Sloppy Joes; fries
Thursday: Fiesta Wraps; Chips with Black Bean Dip
Friday: (MR2 Happy Hour) Mini Chicken Kabobs; cheese and crackers; Mambo Margaritas
Saturday: Spinach Calzones; fruit
