Week 125 Menu

Aren’t these beautiful strawberry tops?  They caught my eye yesterday and I had to snap a photo.  Yes, I know I did not carefully cut the tops off, therefore wasting fruit.  No lectures please.  I was in a strawberry jam emergency at the time of the chopping, which emergency I will share the details of with you later this week!

– Hamburgers on the grill
– Corn on the cob
– Sweet Potato Fries (Trader Joe’s freezer)

– Chicken & Broccoli Penne

– Either Indian food or breakfast for dinner…depending on what we end up eating tonight, Sunday, as I’m planning this menu

– Leftovers

Kitchen-Sink Quesadillas

– Eat out

– Chicken paninis

Please share your menus!  We can’t wait to see your ideas…big and small!
