So far my week hasn't gone at all how I planned. We just can't seem to get everyone healthy and that has been really challenging. Honestly the last thing you feel like doing when you've been sick and dealing with a sick kid all day is standing over a stove and cooking!

Thursday we had homemade pizza. We had enough left over for lunch yesterday too. For dinner I was too wiped out to do anything. I had been up almost all night, and my youngest DD is pretty sick now, so I just had DH get takeout.

Dinner tonight is homemade mac and cheese. I let DD pick and that's what she chose. I'm hoping to get back on track next week. I think I have my menu roughly planned, I'm just waiting on the grocery store ads so I can check out the sales to get a firmer idea.

So sorry to hear about the illness in your family. I hope you guys are feeling better today Getting take out was probably the best idea for you to get rest.

Just back from grocery shopping. Got stuff to make a few new recipes I found on Pinterest (how addicting is that site?!).
Saturday- pizza, snacky foods (cheese/crackers/sausage, chips/veggies/dips)and whatever else we find in there
Sunday- turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, candied sweet potatoes, rolls. Since we have to have black eyed peas, I found a recipe to try for them.http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2...-eyed-pea-dip/ It's got to be better than just eating them straight.
Monday- fish sticks, mac and cheese
Tuesday- mexican lasagna http://mogwaisoup.blogspot.com/2009/...a-lasagna.html
Wednesday- chili
Thursday- 3 cheese pasta bake http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/thre...0000001033041/
Friday-eat out

My mom took us out for lunch and to see the Chipmunks movie as our Christmas gift, so tonight will be a very light meal, probably fruit smoothies & Pb & J's. Dh & I are going to a party for just a few hours & there will be munchies there. I'll be home & in my pajamas by 10!. Hope everyone has a healthy, safe New Years!

Just thought I would share this at church tonight our pastor said something and it stuck with me. For all of you who make resolutions and always start things ( like me) focus on the finish not the start what will you finish this year?
Have a happy healthy wonderful new year!

Wow a new thread. This is my first time posting on this one. Christmas was too crazy to even think about posting. Now I'm back and trying to get on track with the planning. Tonight was Veggie Stir Fry and Rice. My plans are:

Chili and Cornbread
Black Bean Burritos in whole wheat tortillas and corn
Taco night
Hot dogs/shrimp rolls, peaches and green beans
Sweet Potato Stew and homemade biscuits
Spaghetti and garlic bread
Sandwiches, chips and pineapple
Adding Some Disney Magic To A Warrior's Year Of Wishes

Monday: Pollo Yucateco- grilled chicken breast with anaheim peppers, turkey bacon, pico de gallo, provolone cheese and a big salad.

Tuesday: Leftover night (shredded remaining pork loin or chicken), steamed veggies, salad

Wednesday: Grilled hamburger patties with sauteed onions and mushrooms, asparagus spears, salad

Thursday: Grilled chicken salad

Friday: Steak, mixed veggies, salad

Thanks alot-I do get Franks hot sauce so thats an easy one to try

Happy New Year Everyone

Tonight we're having Beef Stew with some homemade gluten free corn muffins. I am hoping that there is enough leftovers for at least lunch tomorrow.

Wednesday: Buffalo chicken (tenders or grilled?)
Thursday: left over chicken
Friday: pizza
I don't think the ziti is going to make it tomorrow night...it was so good we had it for lunch today. Since I bought sandwich rolls for the pulled pork for tonight, maybe we'll have hamburgers for dinner tomorrow night.
