Week 38 Menu

I am feeling SO uninspired about this week’s menu. Nothing sounds good and I definitely don’t feel like cooking. Can you believe I’m already 31 weeks prego?!?! It is flying by so fast…I think the speed of this pregnancy is what’s making me tired! I definitely need a personal chef, and while we’re at it can you throw in a cleaning person, a stylist, a nanny…

I made this Martha Stewart Mac & Cheese recipe tonight since several of you recommended it. Delish! It made enough to feed my entire apartment complex, so half went in the freezer. Hopefully it freezes well. We shall see!

Please share your menus. And for those of you new to TWFD, I don’t care WHAT is on your menu – please share what you’re eating for dinner! Fancy, boring, easy, hard, WHATEVER. 🙂

    Hi Jane, I check out your blog daily to get ideas for our meals. Thanks for sharing your menu with us! Did you know we have something else in common besides just trying to feed our families…. I’m also 31 weeks pregnant! This is my second baby and it seems like it is taking FOREVER.
    I don’t have a menu prepared for this week… My sweet son has croup and I’ve been taking care of him and havn’t had a chance to sit down and make a menu. But, I’m thinking I will try that mac and cheese one night this week and every Sunday morning I make buttermilk pancakes and morning star sausage for breakfast. The pancakes are on my recipe blog. They are yummy and easy- Take Care, Gina

    I just found your post last week and I was so inspired, I made a similar post on my own blog! The reception I’ve received isn’t quite as welcoming as yours. I felt like most of my friends thought I was braggin on my menu so I’m not sure I’ll continue. I can just come visit yours though! So even though the week is 1/2 over, here’s my menu:

    Sunday- Frittata with sausage, mushrooms, peppers, cheese grits, biscuits and gravy

    Monday- Southwestern Turkey-Cheddar burgers w/grilled onions, mushroom risotto, oven grilled veggies

    Tuesday – Chicken pasta over romaine

    Wednesday – my wonderful mother is cooking Salmon in puff pastry

    Thursday – clean out the freezer – Chicken Enchilada casserole for me and Chicken Pot Pie

    Friday- turkey sandwiches with sliced apples and brie, roasted red pepper/tomato soup

    Saturday – take out

    (Bistro Chicken easy recipe … chicken breasts browned in a skillet, remove & cook 1/2 c chopped onions 5 min, add 1 14oz can diced tomatoes, italian seasoning, 1 can of Campbell’s french onion soup, cook that together to reduce liquid 5 min, pour sauce over chicken in a casserole dish, add swiss cheese on top & bake for 20 min!)

    Weds – chili (frozen from a weekend cooking), Jiffy corn bread

    Thurs – take out
