Menu Plan Monday

Here's what we will be eating this week.

Monday: We are butchering chickens today so we will have fresh fried chicken, with new potatoes and corn on the cob from the garden.

Tuesday:  I will make wraps with leftover chicken.

Wednesday: Pork chops, rice, corn, and fresh tomatoes.

Thursday:  Italian cheese bread wedges with tomatoes on top, corn on the cob.

Friday: BLT sandwiches and raw veggies.

This weekend I think I will be having some family over so I don't have an exact menu plan but some possibilities are roast chicken, we could BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, ham with scalloped potatoes, or I could make some chilli in the slow cooker and make cornbread to go along with it.  We will continue to eat the fresh tomatoes and corn from the garden, and my mom said she would bring out the stuff to make plum knaddle.  Plum knaddle (or plum dumplings) is a favorite fall treat that we love to make when plums are in season.  My cousin posted the recipe on her blog here and there is a similar recipe here.

Well that's it for this week.  So far school it going well for the girls.  We are still working on gettting back into a routine as my brother(15) and sister(19) have been visiting a lot.  But we love having them and they do some cool stuff with the girls (like make home movies).
