Hello everyone! Welcome to a new week :)
So I pretty much goofed on last week’s menu. That will teach me for not consulting with the weather network before planning my menu won’t it. It turned out to be a really hot week for us here which in all fairness rarely happens so I wasn’t expecting it. Needless to say I didn’t really feel like turning my oven on at all so I had to play the menu shuffle game a little bit to re-adjust or adapt things for the stove top or grill. It all worked out in the end though but you’ll notice this week that I’ve gotten much smarter and am including many lighter dishes that are quicker to make and don’t require me to heat up the house during our big heat wave…ha ha…it’s still probably considered cold to what many of you are experiencing :)
One of the meals I did still make was the Cheesy Chicken Vermicelli. Super easy to whip together and my hubbie gave it a 9 out of 10 which is a pretty good rating coming from him.
Also my cookie of the week last week was courtesy of Toni (from her most excellent blog The Happy Housewife) and they were yummy yummy! Check out her recipe for Chocolate Chip Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies!
Reminder: The Kid Kaddy giveaway ends today!
So here’s what’s on our menu this week:
Monday: 5-Minute Southwest Layered Salad served with baguette (one of my favorite salad recipes!)
Tuesday: Cold Chicken Satay Noodles (I’ll cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker to use)
Wednesday: Crockpot Italian Meatballs for sub sandwiches
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Thai Pork with Savoy Cabbage
Saturday: Zesty Corn Quesadillas served with Mandarin Spinach Salad
Simple Supper Sunday (which is a really nice way of saying fend for yourself :) )

I’ve been working with Mr. Linky today and have switched to their new server. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well!
