This Week In Our Kitchen – Week of August 21st

I have read posts about so many people’s summers ending and all I can say is … thank goodness for home schooling. We are doing a few subjects, but we haven’t embraced complete schooling yet, so it still seems like summer break. I have also taken a break from cooking for clients for the month of August, which is the longest time I’ve had off since I began in June of 2008, except maternity leave; so I have really been having a great August.

My husband had quite a few dishes he enjoyed this week, but I think his favorite was the Pepsi BBQ Chicken, Potato Cakes and garden salad with blue cheese dressing. I predict this next week he won’t even be able to choose because there are quite a few favorites on the menu.

I also wanted to let you guys know my latest Real Life Matters article will be posted Monday on the on-line women’s magazine, Destiny In Bloom. I hope you guys take a moment to go out and read my article, as well as the other wonderful articles published there.

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

Sunday: Not-So-Fancy Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, garden salad, and bread (This is spaghetti the way my husband and I had growing up – spaghetti, Prego spaghetti sauce, and ground beef.)

Monday:  Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken Sausage, Artichokes, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes, garlic bread and garden salad

Tuesday: Cilantro Pesto Chicken, Cilantro Lime Rice and Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butters

Wednesday: Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Tzaziki Sauce and oven fries. (This is a new recipe. Once I have tried it and tweaked it, I will post it.)

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Hubby’s Ghoulash and buttered bread. (Requested by my son for his birthday, since I nixed the request for Wing Stop.)

Saturday: Homemade individual pizzas (Once again a request of my son. He wants these in order to feed the 5 – 7 boys that will be spending the night at my house. I will be getting the pizza dough balls from our local pizza parlor. He wants these to be grilled, which we have never done.)

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.

Feel free to leave your ideas, too. Happy Cooking!

  1. Your menu sounds very good. I wish I had a weekly menu but since it is just Mr. Sweet and myself, we pretty much just fly by the seat of our pants. :))

    • I will stop by and check it out. I think I have always done menus in some form or fashion since I got married. A lot of it comes from the fact I love to read cookbooks and try new things. Thanks for stopping by.
