Menu Planning Monday

I'm an Organizing Junkie hosts this meme every week at her blog, so I joined in. If you want to get in on the fun check out the guidelines here
As promised here is my first installment of Menu Planning Monday! This is my attempt to answer the age old question that comes into every wife's head around 4:30pm: What should I make for dinner? Here's my plan for the week.

Monday: Luckily we are invited to Ron's Oma and Opas's house for dinner tonight. Yum! Dinner always seems to taste better when it is made by someone else. I'm not sure what is on the menu, but it is bound to be delicious.

Tuesday: BBQ Farmer Sausage and Rice with Tomato salad. This simple and quick dinner is always a hit at our house. I can't go wrong when I make some delicious Remple's Farmer Sausage.

Wednesday: I am heading out for dinner to celebrate my good friend Michelle's birthday. Ron and Naomi will probably enjoy some tasty Sloppy Joes or some good old fashioned meatloaf with mashed potatoes.

Thursday: Chicken and Rice Pilaf with steamed veggies. By this time in the week it is defiantly time to add some chicken to the dinner routine. This dinner is Naomi's favorite. She loves nearly any dish that combined rice and chicken,

Friday: Katletten with Pasta Salad and raw veggies with dip. Kattletlen are small homemade meatballs that are deep fried in oil on the stove top. They are delicious but certainly should not be eaten too often. The pasta salad is simple with eggs and cut up pickles. I'm looking forward to it!

Saturday and Sunday: I find that over planning my menu for the week gets to be a little overwhelming. I usually leave the weekends open for a spontaneous get together or going out to eat.

So there you have it my plan for the week. I think that it will be good. What are you going to make for dinner this week?

Kattletlen sound really interesting! And so does the accompanying salad. Never heard of anything quite like it before. I'd love to see the recipes!

In our house we refer to food made by others as magically appearing. Almost all magically appearing food is extra delicious. Thanks for sharing your ideas. :)

Delicious recipe choices.
Happy Election Day and enjoy some time away from the computer.

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
