I have to ask....is your name Lorien? My daughter's name is Lorien and I only know of one other Lorien...who was a waitress in Indianapolis whom my husband first got the name idea from. Well, another place her name idea came from was the place Lothlorien in the book Lord of the Rings...so cool if that is what your name is...I feel bad sometimes that her name is so unique NO one else has it!

Our daughter is also named Lorien, from the Tolkein trilogy. She was one of two Lorien's in her grade school. There is also a facebook page for Lorien's

Love Tolkein's description "Lothlorien had seen the evil of the world and was not unchanged. But her central character remained unscarred." I think that's a great dream for a daughter.

Last night was sausage and onion hero- along with quesadillas for the non-meat eaters

Tonight is pizza(from Aldi's only $5 and actually huge and pretty good)
Tomorrow my Mom is taking us out to eat! Yeah MOM!
Sunday I have crab legs and I suppose rice with some cheddar biscuits.
Monday perhaps Pasta with sausage *since I have some leftover.

Then I need 2 more days until payday...... things should get interesting around Wednesday. I do also have some Tilapia in the freezer so I can use that. and I have a lot of eggs and pepperoni- so maybe a frittata of some kind- though I am light on veggies. Oh I know! I can do a potato, egg, onion cheese pepperoni one! (as long as I can dig up an onion someplace)

Wink Just found this thread...can't wait to get ideas.

I thought I was the only one to make out a weekly dinner menu... my friends/family think I'm nuts. They say it doesn't leave any room for surprises But it has helped us A LOT from eating out once I started making my list. BTW there are 7 of us.. DH, Me, DD 16 DD 14 DS 12 DS 12 and DH's Niece who is 19 I typically only make dinner 6 nights a week and the non planned day is usually take and bake pizza or casual sit down restaurant with all the family.

March 1st Weekly Plan:

Pancakes with Bacon

Grilled Burgers with deviled eggs and baked beans

Chicken breast with fresh green beans over rice

Shredded chicken breast tacos with salad

Tri-Tip with fresh grilled asparagus and loaded twice baked potatoes

Grilled pork medallion skewers with garlic bread and corn on the cob.

We also had some grilled cheese and for dessert snickerdoodle brownies.

I am home sick from work so I pulled out some vegetable beef soup from the freezer for dinner tonight. Mom will heat that up with some biscuts.
