This Week In Our Kitchen – Week of August 7th

Well I have about half of last week’s menu carrying over to this next week. My husband enjoyed some great east coast seafood, and I spoiled my 11-year-old with his favorite fast food places. After all, he missed out on some great eats with his dad and I; and secondly, he really did great his first week at football practice. I did make sure and tell him to not even expect getting food every night on his way home from practice after this last week.

My husband’s favorite dinner from last week was his mom’s lasagna, cheesy crescent rolls and banana pudding. But, he also really enjoyed the chicken and waffles we made on Wednesday. I will try very hard to get that recipe up for you guys some time this next week. I must admit that chicken and waffles did not sound all that great to me, but since my husband had mentioned it many times I thought we might as well give it a try, and guess what? It was really good.

Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.

Sunday: Chicken Spaghetti (I will try to get this recipe up by the end of the week.)

Monday:  Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops, Smashed Fried Potatoes and Caprese Salad (since I don’t have this salad on my blog, this is identical to what I do at our house.)

Tuesday: Baked Potato Bar, using slow cooked baked potatoes

Wednesday: Taco Salad

Thursday: Steak Baquettes with oven sweet potato fries

Friday: Beef fajitas, homemade tortillas and refried beans

Saturday: Tilapia Athenian (A mild fish pan-fried and topped with spinach, plum tomatoes and feta cheese), couscous, and Greek salad.

As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe.
