Menu Planning - Week of 9/26/11

Happy Happy Monday to you all! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was pretty lazy... spent lounging around the house making space on the dvr for all of the new fall shows, doing a bit (just a bit) of cleaning, and watching the UFC fight on Saturday, and some football on Sunday. No Bengals game though, unfortunately. I'm really hating these blackouts! We lost anyways but it just doesn't feel the same not being able to watch their game, lose or not! Coming from the lips of a true Bengals fan :) And did any of you fellow UFC fans really think that Rampage had a chance at beating Bones Jones? I sure didn't! Jones is a beast.

But enough about sports. Sorry if you have no idea what I'm talking about. We'll move on to food, something you're more familiar with, I'm sure! I've had a date night scheduled for I don't know how long, and no we don't take that many date nights! We haven't taken any of the ones I've scheduled for, and alas, we must go this week because my deal at Quaker Steak expires at the end of this month! Way to procrastinate :) Oh well, at least I have a reasonable excuse why we have to have date night this week! Anyhoo... on to the menu plan!


Monday 9/26/11:  Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas with rotini

Tuesday 9/27/11:  Stuffed Smoked Pork Chops with frozen veggies

Wednesday 9/28/11:  date night at Quaker Steak and Lube... need to use my *groupon!

Thursday 9/29/11:  30th anniversary Mexican-themed party at work... I can't wait for all of those Mexican goodies on the menu that day!

Friday 9/30/11:  Pork Fried Rice

Saturday 10/1/11:  out to eat for my Mama's birthday :)

Sunday 10/2/11:   Skillet Lasagna with ciabatta bread

 

*I get tons of deals from many different sites, like Groupon, Livingsocial, Cincysavers, etc etc. I tend to just refer to all of my restaurant deals as "Groupons" even though some came from different sites. Just a little FYI. If you see "Groupon", just think "coupon". K? K! Glad we cleared that up ;)

Here's to another great week, and to the end of September. My, how time flies! I must find time to put up my fall and Halloween decorations before it's too late! It'll be Christmas before we know it. I dunno whether to smile or cry a little.

Peace, and bacon grease!

Jon Bones Jones is a local kid, and he and his brothers are all great guys as well as talented athletes.

Sorry about your Bengals, but I'm grinning ear to ear about my Bills. This week when they play each other, I'll have to raise a drink for a virtual clink with you.

Happy Birthday to your Mama! Sounds like a fun week of activity planned.
