Last night I ended up going out with my co-workers again. It had been a long week (we found out one the managers had been stealing and was let go).

Tonight we had planned to eat pork chops, baked sweet potatoes, and zucchini but I was called into work. One of the girls had a house fire and needed to leave right away. Since I live 5 minutes away they called me to be there for the last hour since two people are needed to close out the store. We ended up having snack items for dinner instead.

School and activities start this week, so here's to keeping to a schedule with menus along with everything else!

Today we'll be having our end of summer vacation bash and heading to Texas Roadhouse and then to Wegman's to shop for the extra stuff we'll need for school lunches.

I pick the veg or fruit on the day of based on what I could get reasonably price at the store.

Mon BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers, curly fries and applesauce
Tues No Peeking Peking Chicken (crockpot) and rice, veg
Wed Bacon, eggs, bagels, fruit
Thurs Beef roast, mashed potatoes, corn, green veg
Fri Toy Story movie night - pizza, salad, juice, dessert? (haven't decided yet)
Sat Leftovers
Sun Shrimp scampi, rice, veg (will also make Kraft Mac & cheese in case scampi has
too much garlic for DD)

I started school last Tuesday Tuesday is going to be my most challenging day. I will be in school from 1PM to 7PM. That means my hubby will have to make dinner. My plan for this week is to prepare crock pot lasagna and stick it in the fridge. He can throw the crock pot on and have dinner in 2-3 hours. Mondays I will be home by 7 so again my family will have to fend for themselves. Looks like I may have to use Sundays to prepare meals so hubby can throw them in the oven or crock pot.

The good news is I will graduate in May. My hubby just took a $6.00/hr pay cut. It looks like I might be the breadwinner for a bit. This is where my budgeting skills are really going to help us out!

I had my first pickling experience yesterday and hope to be making jam soon

We had a good weekend around here (despite my migraine on Monday). This week is busy but should be fun!

Monday - we had crockpot pulled BBQ chicken, rice a roni and cantaloupe

Tuesday - turkey smoked sausage, macaroni & cheese, sauerkraut and cantaloupe

Wednesday - Dance! Crockpot turkey meatballs with mashed potatoes (DH and DD will eat before dance, I will eat when we get home)

Thursday - spaghetti and garlic toast

Friday - Football! Probably grab subway on the way to the game and eat there. DSS told us the visiting team has sold 8000+ tickets for the game!! So we will probably eat in the stands to hold our seats for the game.

Saturday - DD 6th Birthday! We'll have dinner wherever she wants!

Sunday - DD birthday party at Chuck E Cheese

Italian Beef is a sandwich most famous in Chicago.

Quote:
An Italian beef is a sandwich of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, dripping with meat juices, on a dense, long Italian-style roll, which originated in Chicago where its history dates back at least to the 1930s.[1] The bread itself is often dipped (or double-dipped) into the juices the meat is cooked in, and the sandwich is typically topped off with Chicago-style giardiniera (called "hot") or sauteed, green Italian sweet peppers (called "sweet").
They are amazing and a taste of home (I am originally from just North of the city). We sometimes order kits from Taste of Chicago and make them here.

Pinterest is a great resource for recipes. Here is my own Italian Beef recipe:

Beef Roast (I find that a chuck tender roast works the best)
1 pkg dry italian dressing
1 pkg au jus (found with gravy mix packets)
1 jar pepperoncini peppers WITH JUICE

Simmer all of this in the crockpot on low for 8-10 hours. You may want to add some water if it dries out, you want juice to dip your sandwich in. Shred the meat and serve on hoagie or sour dough rolls. DELICIOUS!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dinner tonight:

Aloha Pork Chops (http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/recipe...ps-124104.aspx)
Broccoli Rice Au Gratin
Garden Peas

The crockpot lasagna I make all the time. I sometimes substitute grilled eggplant inbetween the layers. http://tinkmomfoodie-foodobsession.b...ck+pot+lasagna

I have a ton of other crock pot recipes on my blog too One of my other favorites is crock pot mac and cheese. I plan on making crockpot beef stew this next week too.
