What's on your menu?

Thursday

Creamy garlic tofu and mushrooms (using Philly Savory Garlic Cooking Cream free from HT super doubles through 5/3 with $1.50/1 coupon) – I am making up this tofu recipe so we’ll see how it goes. I am going to cook it on the skillet and serve it over brown rice. I will probably throw in some fresh spinach as well….yum!

Friday

Pizza night ($2.99 Lowes Foods rising crust pizza using 3 week store coupon found in this week’s ad)

Graduation party for my cousin who is graduating from UNC – Congratulations Ashleigh! Not sure what we are having for dinner but I don’t have to cook or wash dishes so it will be FABULOUS no matter what it is!

Sunday – Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!

I prefer not to cook on Mother’s Day so hubby and kids are going to surprise me with dinner (I can’t wait to see what they come up with!).
