Menu Plan Monday - May 3, 2010

Most of last week went according to plan, but Jacob got sick (again!) Friday night, so the weekend changed. Apparently he has the same thing he had last time - sudden high fever that comes down quickly with Motrin (thus a virus), which spikes again after the meds have worn off. He had minor coughing before this started, but it's gotten more frequent, especially at night. Again. It's not to the stage where it sounds "wet", but I'm sure that's coming. If he follows suit like last time, today should be his last day of fever... Then Caleb will probably come down with it tomorrow...

Jacob was able to attend the AWANA Awards Program at church. Billy sat in the back with him so he wouldn't spread his germs to all his friends. He went up to get his award, but hung back from the rest of the group, then went back to his seat. His junior leader came back to shake his hand, but Jacob wouldn't do it. We had to explain that he was sick and we had told him not to touch anyone. He was good about remembering!

Instead of the AWANA picnic, we picked up supper from Taco Bell and brought it home to eat. At least the boys didn't have to eat sandwiches on their special night.

Last week I made a loaf of Cranberry Walnut Bread so I'll be having Jacked-Up Turkey Sandwiches for lunch every day. Woohoo!!!

On to this week's menu.


Somehow we didn't eat all the leftovers from last week. I think we had more than we realized. We'll finish those off tonight so nothing will go to waste.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Spaghetti & Meatballs
Green Beans
Homemade Italian Bread

Panko-Breaded Baked Chicken Nuggets (w/ KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce for dipping)
Chuck Wagon Corn (frozen package)
Bush's Southern Pit Barbecue Grillin' Beans (I had bought these to take to the picnic...)


??? A friend of ours is graduating from DTS and will be having an open house celebration that afternoon - a come-and-go affair. If we've decided to stay in town, we'll drop in there and maybe grab a bite to eat out.

Sunday - Mother's Day!
OUT! (Whether we're visiting family or in town...)

Hmmmm... I think we need a breakfast supper next week. It's been a while since the last one.
