Sunday's Supper - Dinner at the Table
So here it is Sunday and I am trying to figure out what to plan for our menu for the week. It's been raining the past two days so I do not want to go grocery shopping in the rain. I want to be a good Housewife! However, I have to also deal with reality...I hate shopping in the rain!
One of the things that DH and I strive for is to always eat at the dining room table for our nightly meal. We started it when we first moved in together back in 1996. I was amazed to the fact that whenever we went to his mother's we always had dinner at the table as a family. My family back home we really never ate at the table. I can remember doing it as a child, but once I "grew" up, it was no longer a requirement. We were always so busy that sometimes being able to just eat at the same time was a treat in itself being under the same roof. Whenever DH and I began a family of our own, this was one of the things we both wanted to start as "our" family tradition. Another thing I had to get used to is that I guess in the "South" people tend to say "Supper" over "Dinner". That was something I had to get used to. LOL So whether or not you have Sunday Dinner or Sunday Supper, I hope you have a good one!
Looking on hand in our freezer and pantry we do have enough things to get us through the entire week.
Here is my current and tentative plan:
SUN: Boys Menu - Baked Chicken with baked potatoes (even loaded!), cucumbers
Moma's Meal - Sauteed Mushroom Onion blend and a Baked Potato with Dayia,
Bacos, and Earth Balance Butter, cucumber salad
MON: Spaghetti & Meatballs (Shhh....The meatballs are vegetarian, don't tell the guys!)
TUE: Taco Tuesday! (The boys get the meat version while Moma uses "Match" substitute for hers!
(Goddess that brand of meat substitutes are AWESOME!)
WED: Pork chops in the slow cooker
Moma's Meal: Salad with whatever items she has on hand.
THU: Chicken and Rice
Moma's Meal: I eat the rice and make a stir fry with peapods, bamboo shoots, mushrooms,
carrot and broccoli.
FRI: Fish sticks and Mac n Cheese for the kids
Tilapia for Mom and Dad (Fish is one of the few proteins that does not make me sick,
so i still enjoy it once a week!)
SAT: Don't know yet...Moma needs to go grocery shopping!!!
So anyways that is the plan for this week!
