    Faye, first you have to tell me what's in that salad in the photo -- dressing included please. It looks so good and I think we may add it to our menu one night this week.

    Tonight is leftover chicken in a creamy mushroom - sour cream - white wine - parm and cheddar sauce. Very delicious. We are having it with leftover rice and some fresh green beans. The Princess will get the leftover green beans if thee are any.

    Ascherer, sorry your menu plans didn't work out. Mac & cheese does make everything better! So glad to see so many of you incorporating it into your menus! LOL :)

    That's about as far as I've gotten this week for the menu, but at least I know what we're having tonight and it's only 6:00 instead of 8:30!

    Tonight is bone in pork chops, fresh green beans and mac and cheese. May do some grilled pineapple to go on the chops.

    RFB - thanks for sharing the recipe!

    twinredheads - you are off to a great start with the menu this week even if you have no idea what's coming next. Hoping you find some down time soon.

    miacarre - he is going to be quite surprised when you keep going down 95 way past Myrtle!

    We're having leftover Pakistani Kima tonight. I wanted to share the recipe because it was SO good! I've not made much Indian or Pakistani food in the past, but when I read on this blog that it was her most requested recipe, I had to give it a try. It uses pretty inexpensive ingredients, and it makes a ton. Really delicious and hearty flavors and healthy (I used regular potatoes, diced up small so they cook in 25 minutes).

    London Broil in the Crockpot with potatoes and carrots. Very busy week so I have no clue about the rest of the menus. Just taking it one day at a time :)

    Faye, Thank you! I will definitely check that website, my son thinks we're going to Myrtle Beach.

    Tonight it's Meatless Monday with teriyaki tofu, lo-mein noodles, stir fry veggies (zucchini, mushrooms and onions).

    Miacarre - how fun!! He will be so surprised! I hope you have a wonderful time and a safe drive. I am sure you have checked out all the money saving sites for Disney but here's a popular one in case you have not seen it:

    ascherer - sorry your meal planning is a bust this week. Hopefully you can still enjoy your potato (or comfort mac & cheese!).
