Menu Plan most of October 2011
For the record, Ranger Cookies still work if you forget to add the Rice Krispies. (I was wondering why the dough seemed a little different this time.)
When he and his girlfriend showed up, there was much rummaging in the refrigerator for lunch. That's when they got a look at the calendar on the front of the fridge. It's where I've been keeping my menu plan.
"Maybe we could eat our dinners here every night," Big Brother's girlfriend sighed. Best compliment EVER!
There's nothing like Dorm Food to make your kids appreciate Mom's Home Cooking.
Beginning of the month menu plan is here.

Tues 11: Chicken enchiladas
Wed 12: Chicken & noodle skillet
Thurs 13: Spaghetti
Fri 14: Pizza
Sat 15: Fajitas (thanks, Father Leo!)

Tues 18: Chicken Swiss Melt
Wed 19: Taco Skillet
Thurs 20: Spaghetti

The plan for Halloween is still up in the air. A lot depends on what time trick-or-treat is going to start.
