I was pleasantly surprised, this week, to find out that my mother and my sister will be coming to town this next weekend. As a result, we are only planning for half a week, this week. They will be in town late Thursday night, so we are planning Monday through Thursday. I have two other siblings who live in town, and between the three of us we will certainly each have a hand in providing meals between Friday night and Sunday night, but none of us have really planned all too much what this weekend will look like yet. We will probably end up doing something kind of potluck-ish.
The pork chops on previous menu plans keep getting pushed off and out of the way for other things. Not that we dislike them, but things keep coming up. Today, for example, is Father's Day, and my dear husband (who is already such an incredible father and our little Joshua is still 4 months away from joining the party) really wanted to roast one of our chickens today. He worked very hard this week at getting our meat birds out of the coop and into the freezer, so instead of pork chops we're having a delicious roast chicken, stuffed with a mix of apples, oranges, celery, garlic, honey, and a little white wine. So the pork chops are kicking off this next week, instead.
Monday - Pork Chops, Summer Squash Sautee, Multigrain Rolls
Tuesday - Breakfast for Dinner (whole wheat pancakes, eggs, bacon)
Wednesday - Chicken & Biscuits (with homemade whole wheat biscuits & leftover chicken from Sunday)
Thursday - Hot Dogs (Nitrate & MSG Free) w/whole wheat buns, steamed veggies
And that is our (short) week!
