Menu Madness-less-ness

I’ve gotten back into the groove of school. I’ve been slow to add the blog aspect back- but it has been crazy.  LOTS have happened.

But first….and most important…what’s for dinner in the Dub household this week.


Sunday night-  Hubby had to ref all day and I needed to grocery shop, meal prep and wanted to get the garage cleaned up.  I gave myself an easy night…

Mexican-  I made roasted chili peppers, stuffed with chorizo and cheese for an appetizer, with build your own tostada or burrito stuff on hand.  The tostada’s were a HIT! 



Monday dinner. I opted for a Chicken and Mushroom in White Wine sauce with garlic sautéed green beans and rice for dinner.  Everything is prepped and ready to go!  Lola helped me prep all the chicken for the week.  It SOOO makes things easier.  I found the recipe on  and it is a SUPER easy – GOOD recipe!!!!  The green beans par cooked with sautéed onions and garlic and they’ll get a quick toss in a pan before serving.  Delicious and still crispy. 



Tuesday is an easy night because I am going out to dinner with some of “the guys”.  So, I’ve got Roast Beef Sammies and good bakery bread for the family…along with a RIDICULOUS amount of ice cream for them to choose from.

Wednesday night – we have a high school soccer game.  I’ll make a big pan of Chicken Parmesan, served with a side of pasta and broccoli.  Again – Lola has already pounded out the chicken for me – so all I have to do is sauté and then bake…this is a great meal to carb the boys up – they also have a game on Thursday night..

Thursday night – we’re going with a lighter fare – Cilantro Lime Shrimp with brown rice and fresh pineapple.  The cilantro did double duty from Sunday nights dinner.  Just love the aroma in the kitchen from fresh cilantro!!!

Other things being prepared for the week…Monday morning some French Toast – lots of deli sliced turkey sandwiches on a variety of bakery breads, tons of fresh oranges, apples and bananas…and of course –  I made sure there were leftovers for in between meal snacking!

Have a great week….

Oh and one more picture – the cat – Theo…because he likes to go for a walk.  YEP – the cat rides in the dang jogger stroller.
