Menu Plan for Week of 10/17/2011


Well we have nearly survived Fall Break here at the Geroux household-We did nothing fun and did not travel as I still had school and Jas still had work. For those not in the Phoenix area, our public schools take a week (or 2 depending on your school district) off each October as fall break- sort of the evil cousin of spring break if you will. My boys get a week and 1 day off as our district puts a teacher in-service/planning day on the Monday following Fall break so as to extend the vacation. So one more full day off then back into the swing of things- only to then get 2 half days for parent teacher conferences on Wednesday and Thursday…At any rate- meal planning has been something I have been inconsistent with (to say the least) the last few months- mostly because I have not been posting my plans on here. So thought I would try to get back into the habit of posting my plans to see if it holds me a bit more accountable.

So without further hoopla here is what we will be having for dinners this week and lunch and dinner next weekend (Jas and I do left overs or soup/ sammies for lunches during the week and the boys always take lunch to school so I just post our weekly dinners):

Monday- Dinner with mom and dad at Old Spaghetti Factory- Jason’s parents heard of a deal going on over at the Old Spaghetti Factory and invited us to join them and this was the only night it worked with everyone’s schedules ;-)

Tuesday- Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops

with Green Beans and smashed potatoes

Wednesday- Pumpkin Patch Stuffed Shells

Thursday-Chicken Bombay

Friday- Phi Theta Kappa Induction Dinner for Jessie at CGCC ;-) Yup, I am a GEEK- I am taking full advantage of my good grades and went ahead and paid dues and accepted my invitation to join the Alpha Sigma Nu Honor Society ;-) They are inducting new members this Friday with a special dinner so it will be a quasi date night for Jas and me ;-)

Saturday- This is a BUSY day for all of us as Jas and Connor have Space Derby with the Cub scouts and Ty and I have Make a Difference Day at the boys school- I am HOPING we will be able to stick to the meal plan—

Lunch-Grilled Ham and Cheese and tomato soup

Dinner-Tuna Pasta Bake

Sunday- We will be heading to the west valley to visit Jason’s sister and fam as well make some fall memories out at Tolmochoff Farms I am hoping we can bring in a picnic lunch

Lunch- Picnic at Tolmochoff Farms (sandwiches, fruit, chips)

Slow Cooker French Onion Pot Roast

Smashed potatoes


So that’s it for us– how about you??
