Menu Plan Monday

Let the sun shine! After three weeks of rain, we finally had a beautiful, sunny day today! The boys finally got to do their birthday rock climbing trip and had a great time. I went hiking with my parents, and then we went to watch the boys climb for a while. After having a rather busy, stressful week, today was just what I needed.

We are approaching the end of school (only 7 1/2 days left), so the schedule is still a little hectic. I have a computer workshop on Monday, Eric has some travel, Corey has quite a few evening meetings, and we are hosting two American Idol finals parties at our house. Here is our menu for the week. Enjoy! For more menu ideas go to

Sunday - Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (just wanted something simple after hiking and climbing)
Monday - Chicken Alfredo (made ahead), broccoli, peaches
Tuesday - American Idol Party - I'm providing the main dish - Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Wednesday - American Idol Party - main dish again - Grilled Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Hot Dogs
Thursday - Out to eat - too many evening obligations
Friday - Taco Bake, Salad, Corn
Saturday - Ultimate BBQ Chicken, Green Beans Almondine, Salad, Strawberries (we were supposed to eat this last week but ended up grilling burgers instead)

I have to say that "American Idol" has provided families with something they all love.
Have a great time at the parties.
Great menu planned!

I have been searching and searching for a good BBQ chicken recipe. NO matter what I seem to do to mine, it always comes out pretty mediocre.

I just love Tyler---my very best lasagna recipe comes from his Food 911 show. Everyone raves about it.

Thanks for sharing!

the hot dogs sounds wonderful...minus the kraut, lol
The hubs & DD would love the bacon wrapped w/cheese in the middle part though.
Thanks for sharing & glad you got some sunshine.
