Week 109 Menu

It’s turned into a stormy weekend.  I think some hot chocolate is in order.

This coming week is going to be FUN.  My in-laws are coming to town…and, lucky for me, that is a great thing!  I’m planning a menu, but I doubt will be sticking to it.

Lentil Soup
– Delicious bread of some sort

Spinach & Prosciutto Lasagna
– Salad

Kitchen Sink Quesadillas
– Guacamole & Chips

– Leftovers

– Eat out

– Eat out

– Breakfast for dinner…probably waffles

It’s your turn!  Please share your menu for the week!


  1. I’m seriously menu planning challenged, so I can offer nothing more than the typical spaghetti and hamburgers. Sigh…your menu looks great, though! I’d like to try both the lasagna and quesadillas you have listed. DH refuses to eat soup (sigh.), so I’ll have to find something else to try.

  22. I just found your site a few weeks ago. I really enjoy your great menu ideas and recipes! Hoping to try some soon. My girls have been sick for a week, so no hope for that right now=) Just wanted to say hello, and I enjoy your site=)

  23. I’m travelling for work for a part of this week, so there isn’t much of a meal plan… And I’m trying really hard to not think about the fact that my family will be eating hotdogs, happy meals, or dino nuggets while I’m away.

    BTW, I tagged you for a meme. I think this one is up your alley.×6.html
