Menu Plan Monday - April 14th!

First of all, a huge happy birthday to my little boy. He's 11 years old today and a real joy. Here's a pic from back in Miami - obvious by the fact that there is grass!! Happy birthday, Daniel!!

Now, onto the menus. I want to say upfront that I am in the process of re-working my 8 Week Menu Plan, as well as my Daily Cleaning Schedule. Being in both a new country (where some ingredients are not readily available) and in a new home have necessitated some changes. Look for these updated plans in the next week or two.

Here's what we will be having this week!

Monday - Tonight we are going out for dinner to celebrate Daniel's birthday. He's chosen to go to Bennigan's. Yep, there's a Bennigan's in Qatar!

Tuesday - Chicken Parmesan, steamed vegetables, Caesar salad and garlic bread (didn't get to make this last week as I couldn't find shredded Parmesan cheese - as it is I settled for a mozzarella/parm blend that I hope works)

Wednesday - Baja Beef and Beans with Tex-Mex Rice

Thursday - Crockpot Chicken over rice (simply chicken breasts with cream of chicken soup and onion soup mix in the crockpot)

Friday - Homemade Pizza

Saturday - Lentils and Rice

Sunday - Shepherd's Pie

If your menu planning could use a little boost, be sure to drop by The Organizing Junkie to find hundreds of menu plans. We could all use some new ideas, right??

Happy Birthday Daniel!! I hope you enjoy your birthday dinner. Laurie--I hope this posting works--having a bit of trouble here. Anyway, coming from the Cuban-American princess that I am, may I suggest that you find out about the cost of hiring a housekeeper to just help you with the big stuff as you are setting up the house? Then you can maintain it yourself. Don't know about the service economy there. Anyway, I've got to get ready for work now. Love you and miss you. JOsie
