Last week I was right on schedule, but this week has proven to be a little more tricky.

Monday night we wanted to treat a friend to dinner.
Tuesday a friend invited us to lunch and no one was really hungry for dinner so we did what I like to call "Fend for yourself" night.
Wednesday was chicken fried steak, mashed, gravy and sauteed green beans and asparagus.
Thursday (tonight) I'm making what I call Mexisagna in the crock pot.
Friday will be Build Your Own Pizza night (which usually turns out to be tell mom what you want and she'll make it for you).
Saturday is another crock pot day, it'll be some kind of chicken and cream cheese and whatnot concoction I'll make up that day.
Sunday will be (Turkey)BLTs with oven baked fries.

Not great, but not too bad.

Busy week this week too! So far we've had:

Chicken and mole pulled sandwiches with pinto beans
ate out on a Groupon last night
Asian bbq salmon and green bean foil packets on the grill
I have some kielbasa we may make with noodles
my famous Indian style cold chicken sandwiches may be in our future

Our wedding anniversary is next week but my hubby has to work. We may go out for dinner on a Groupon this week of course.

Do you have a recipe for the bolded? Sounds like something mom and I would love and I am always looking for new salmon recipes (I eat it weekly).

Hi,
The bbq salmon recipe is something we always use. The marinade recipe is here and so is a recipe for salmon burgers. http://tinkmomfoodie-foodobsession.b...arch?q=salmon+
The only difference is we made little foil pouches. You can either do one per person with the fish on the bottom and the veggies on top, or make a big foil packet and cook everthing together. I brush the marinade over the fish first and then the veggies second. This time we used fresh green beans. Make sure you have enough foil so you can pull up and seal the sides. They cook for about 10-12 minutes on the grill. Check the fish for doneness. It should feel firm but springy.

If you don't have Hosin sauce you can substitute any regular BBQ sauce of your choice.

I also like to top with some more sesame seeds.

We were having steak tonight.. easy to throw together supper and little clean up.
I forgot to take the steak out of the freezer last night. Darn. They are so thick they would never be ready in time so I'll take them out to thaw today and marinate tomorrow.
So tonight.. Spaghetti Pie/ Salad

Saturday... Steak (fish for dd), potato packets in foil on the bbq, and asparagus

Sunday.. Something simple. Driving two hours to take my grandma out for Brunch so maybe I will throw something in the crockpot for when we get home.

*Decided on crockpot potato/corn chowder. I saw someone else mention it in a post and found a recipe I have everything on hand for so Sunday will be a good time to try it.

Last night was broiled bbq chicken cutlets and the first corn of the season

Tonight is pasta cordon bleu : mini ziti, bottled alfredo sauce, chicken breast (trimmings from shaping cutlets and a whole one), cubed ham (left from last week and popped in the freezer) and extra cheese

Tomorrow (Sat) is a "Forage Day" We're planning to go out for breakfunch, run errands and maybe pick up some fish for the garden pond. Dinner will be what ever we want, whenever we want.

Sunday morning is grocery day, and I'll see what looks good and is on sale

Last night we ended up out for Chinese food. It was payday and I had a long day at work.

Tonight we will do the turkey burgers with sweet potato fries and applesauce
