Menu Plan Monday: May 2

I'm getting off to a slow start this week, but a pressing deadline has come and gone and I'm ready to get back into my routine.

This week's menu has a little carried over from last week's because of some sudden changes of plans. The boys were invited to go to a pizza/play restaurant with a neighbor for his birthday, so Billy and I ate light instead of cooking. Then I was busy with mopping and vacuuming the next day and didn't feel like cooking. Oh, and Billy and I had a quick project to finish up that we had forgotten about the night before - when the boys were gone...

Pepperoni Pasta
garden salad

(This is the recipe Jacob found in a kids' cookbook. We made it, but I tweaked it with my own sauce recipe and a few ingredient substitutions. It was surprisingly good, especially considering I'm not a fan of pepperoni. Yeah, I know I'm Italian...)

pancake night
(regular for Billy, blueberry for me, and chocolate chocolate chip for the boys)


Thursday - Cinco de Mayo
Black Bean Quesadillas
chips with guacamole and salsa

Southwestern Cornbread Salad

Tony Chachere's Dirty Rice

Sunday - Mother's Day

LOL! With pancakes it's easy. Just make the batter and cook Billy's. Pour mine in the skillet and add some thawed blueberries. To the rest of the batter, just stir in some cocoa powder and add a few chocolate chips while they're cooking. It's not so hard; otherwise I wouldn't do it. :o)
