Menu Plan Feb 14-20 (and what the week holds)

Keeping it short and sweet this week, as it is late and the pillow is calling me.  Valentine's Day is coming late for us, we are celebrating on Saturday as all three of us were sick over the weekend, and did not feel much like celebrating anything.

We are going to see some of Jeff's family on Wednesday, and checking out the property our family just bought in a small town a few hours south of here. The property has a decent-sized home, and five acres so we can finally get started on our homesteading dream. The part that is really difficult is leaving our town and community. We love it here, and we know it will be nothing short of a miracle if we can find a local church body where we feel as at home as we do at our current church. More on the homestead later, but suffice it to say it will most likely be at least 2 months before we move.

Last week I totally skimped on the menu plan, and we certainly paid the price for it in prep time and sanity. This week I am getting to it late, but at least getting to it. We do still have a holdover meal from the last blogged plan (fried chicken), and a family birthday party on Sunday means that we will certainly be doing leftovers Sunday night. Wednesday it is dinner with my brother-in-law & sister-in-law, and my adorable niece and nephew.

That's the week, and here's the plan:

Monday - Jeff's amazing Burgers
Tuesday - Fried Chicken and all the trimmings
Wednesday - Dinner with Jon & Rachel
Thursday -Chicken & Mushroom Cannelloni (prepared meal we'll pick up on the road, not ideal, but we used up all our freezer meals after Joshua was born)
Friday - Crockpot chicken pot pie
Saturday - grass finished steaks (we'll pick them up at WF on the way home from down south), Baked Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli
Sunday - Family Bday Party = light dinner (leftovers)
