This week's menu

Updated with new links...

Hello there! Hope you had a good weekend and got through your Monday without too much of a struggle. I loved our menu last week. I'm sorry I forgot to post it. My favorite day was "Pizza, popcorn, and cupcake" night! Cora turned 5, and we had a couple of her close friends over for a little birthday celebration. It was so fun!

Here's what's on our table this week...

Monday- Burgers and Tots

Tuesday- Taco Cupcakes (healthier version) aka Wonton Tacos at our casa. Make sure and adjust the ingredients to your liking. For instance, I don't buy "fat free" because that usually means there is a chemical replacing the fat. I'm not using ground turkey; rather ground elk. Our family LOVES these. I always say I need to make a double batch. Maybe I'll remember tonight.

Wednesday- The Best Sloppy Joes' Ever well, according to the author of the recipe anyway. I'll let you know how they rate at our house. Let me know if you cook them and what your crew thinks too!

Thursday- One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta I've never made this one, but it sure sounds good.

Friday- YOYO

Saturday- Black and Blue Steak Sandwich I can't wait for this one. I think it will be deeeelicious!

Sunday- Curried Chicken with Coconut Rice I'm making my kids (and Kelvin) step out of the box on this one, but I think they will thank me. (fingers crossed!)

I used a new-to-me feature on Ziplist for the recipe links this time. Hope it works for ya. I think I've mentioned here before how much I love Ziplist, but it's worth mentioning again. It's the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to saving recipes you find online, making shopping lists you can link to your smart phone and calendar, planning menus, sharing shopping lists, and on and on and on. Check it out at www.Ziplist.com. I wish I were getting paid to tell you about all the goodness that is their site, BUT I'm not. I just really like it.

Well, have a great week. I'll be back to share a couple of things tomorrow and the next day and the next (that is if everything works as planned and I don't forget or get sidetracked, which is always a possibility.) I know...crazy, huh? What's gotten in to me?

I leave you with this cuteness

These are the darling cupcakes from Cora's party...thank you, Amanda! I found the popcorn wrappers on Pinterest...fuh-ree printable, baby! Whoo Hoo! You can download them from this sweet lady's blog.

I'm Linking to the Organizing Junkie's Menu Planning Monday I always get excited when I see her menu plan pop up in my inbox. :) I usually find a couple of recipes to incorporate.


  1. I love your menu. Im making rea Drummond sloppy joes tonight. I leave out the sugar and use half ketchup half tomato sauce. After it gets mixed up in the morning, I toss it in the slow cooker. Im going to have to try the curry you posted. Pat and I love Indian food...kids not so much yet.
    Have a great day!

  2. The links didn't work for me - maybe I'd have to register and log in? The recipe titles sound delicious, and the cupcakes are adorable!

  3. Ok, thanks Jenni. I'll work on the links today. :)


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
