It's the week of Thanksgiving here in the US, so of course that helps shape the menu this week. My husband is not a huge fan of turkey, so I didn't take advantage of all the turkey specials this week. So you won't see any turkey or turkey leftovers on our meal plan this week :) (I know, weird!)
My kiddo is feeling a little under the weather today (Saturday) so our plans to join our church for a huge harvest banquet on Sunday are probably not going to happen, so that adds one more night to plan, but luckily hubby actually made a request for a dish this week, so I'll put it in there.
Sunday - Chicken Rice Casserole (by request) - I'm going to put chicken quarters on top of rice, and cover that with cheddar cheese soup, cream of mushroom, and cream of chicken
Monday - Pecan Crusted Tilapia , veggies, and salad
Tuesday - Tacos and corn
Wednesday - Baked Chicken Parmesan
Thursday - THANKSGIVING - We'll be joining the in-laws and the only thing I am bringing is a Peanut Butter Cup Pie. I also picked up sandwhich makings for later in the evening when my husband and daughter forget that they had a giant meal at 1:30 in the afternoon.
Friday - Is usually our Family Night out, we'll see how that goes after we are all together on Thursday.
Saturday - Burgers or Pizza - Whatever we can eat while watching the football games :)

I have also been reading 365 Games Smart Toddlers Play. It has a lot of fun quick games to play with your toddler, and it doesn't take a lot to read. The games are fun :)
The book that I have been reading slowly but surely is Parenting: from Surviving to Thriving by Charles Swindoll. Thus far I have enjoyed what he has to say, the only downside is the need to "marinate" each thought. I only find myself finishing a few pages at a time. It is a library book, and by the time I am done I am pretty sure the library will be calling collections on me :)

Baked Oatmeal - Peanut Butter and Chocolate for breakfast, need I say more?
Carrot Bread - Simple mix and match recipe
Banana Bread - Simple mix and match recipe
Sloppy Joes x4 - Beef, a little bit of brown sugar, a little bit of mustard, and a can of tomato soup. Super Easy!
Lasagna x2 (or possibly 4 smaller ones)
Chicken Pot Pies x2
Penne Rustica x2 (probaby 4 smaller ones)
I'm ready for some new recipes, but I haven't found any that I've been interested in (and that my husband will eat) recently. Any ideas that will get me out of my rut?? Post a comment here :)
