Well our house was stricken with the flu...Zach and I are better, but Gene is now down. I scrubbed everything I could think of with bleach...I want those pukies to go away!

I have the menu for this week ready to roll:

Crockpot pork
with rice
and steamed green beans.

Place 2lbs meat into crockpot. Top with one can cream of mushroom soup. Some minced dried onion, black pepper and two cloves mince garlic. cook on low 6-8 hours. Serve this over rice.

BLT sandwiches
chicken and wild rice soup

Prepare sandwiches, but make sure to use good french bread and real mayo!

Shredded pork quesadillas
seasoned veggie rice
(Use leftover pork and rice to prepare this)
To make rice: Saute veggies in pan until softened(I will be using carrots, onions, garlic, and celery). Add 1/2 cup of spicy tomato or V8 type juice, add rice and cook until liquid has been absorbed.
Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Ravioli with pasta sauce
green salad
garlic bread(use leftover bread from BLTs)

Cook ravioli according to package directions. Drain and coat with heated pasta sauce.
Serve with bread and salad.

BBQ meatball sandwiches
baked beans and coleslaw

Heat prepared meatballs with BBQ sauce. Serve on buns with pickles.
Use canned baked beans and deli prepared coleslaw.

Make your own pizza night. Let everyone prepare thier own part of the pizza. Serve with leftover green salad, or raw veggies and dip.

Shrimp and pasta
with snow peas

Prepare pasta, cook shrimp in non-stick pan with butter and minced garlic..cook until shrimp is opaque. Add shrimp and steamed snow peas to pasta, toss to coat.
