Food for Thought

Ok, I know I was going to try and put my menus up every Sunday, but this weekend got away from me!  Don's element planned a family day at one of the local water parks (there are at least 3 water parks on Guam, which seems like a lot for how small this island is).  We spent Sunday at the Onward Beach Resort water park.  It was a really nice day!  It only rained twice, but when you're already wet from spending hour upon hour in the Lazy River who cares?  By the time we got home tired, sun kissed (in Don's case, sun crisped), and in no mood to cook, much less to think about the menu (or shopping list) to be compiled for the week ahead, I let it slide.

And then, I put it off again because I had the rare, but seriously much needed, chance to leave the boys at home and escape get out of the house for a few hours with a friend.  I apologize for the delay, but without further ado.. here's the menu (I know you're chomping at the bit)....

Sunday- Cook's Day Off
Monday- Crepes Florentine*
Tuesday- Michael Boys' Meatloaf*
Wednesday- Leftovers
Thursday- Salsa Chicken and rice

These are original recipes, a la me.  Yes KJ and KPH, I am actually WRITING recipes down.  I'll share them next week.

Oh, guess what??  Doing this menu thing continues to pay off, I am doing GREAT with the grocery budget this month!  It helps that it's a short month, but I have almost a quarter of the budget left.

I'm proud of you for writing recipes down. I am still bitter about never being able to re-create that fabulous seafood casserole you made. You would be proud of me - I have become quite the recipe alterer (I'm sure that's not a word, but you get my drift). I have even been tweaking the heck out of some bread recipes.
