Menu Planning - Week 2

Did I just commit to planning our menus?  Funny how planning to plan is now an activity on my momAgenda.  Awesome.

So this week is nutty - with lots going on and very limited time at home (not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing - less cooking for me - but getting home late with the kids is never a good thing...)  At any rate - going forward:

Saturday - (past tense) - Oktoberfest at Incarnation Lutheran

Sunday - Pumpkin Pasta, Fall Salad (because we didn't eat it last week - took a spur of the minute trip up to the NC orchards and didn't make - thank goodness I had the brains to freeze the sausage and everything else was either in the pantry or had a long expiration date)

Monday - Crazy kid activity night - dinner out at Tios

Tuesday - Grandparents Day and Early Release for Anna and James
- pick up kids at the BL Fireman Spaghetti dinner fundraiser

Wednesday - Church Programs and Dinner

Thursday -  Butterfly Pasta (Jack's never ending request)
*Modification of Kathy's Broccoli Pasta:
1 lb. bow-tie pasta (or as Jack says butterfly)
1 lb. turkey Italian sausage
1 head broccoli (cut into small pieces)
Parmesan cheese

Brown sausage in non-stick skillet and set aside.  Boil pasta according to package directions for al dente.  5 minutes prior to end of cooking time, toss in broccoli and cook until bright green and tender and pasta is al dente.  Drain.  Return to pasta pot, add sausage, stir to combine.  Toss with grated cheese.  

Friday - Family Trip to the State Fair

Maybe next week I'll actually cook.

Could happen - you just never know.
