Behind Already

So here is the first in a series of hopefully not too disorganized and somewhat helpful posts for my Wednesday morning moms group.  Of course anyone else is welcome also....

This weeks menu items are as follows:
Monday:  Ham Steak,  Butternut Squash Ravioli,  green salad and freezer biscuits (w/rosemary)
     This is an easy quick weeknight meal when you run out of time for other things.  The oval ham slice just
     gets heated in a fry pan with a little brown sugar or some pineapple slices.  Quick to make ravioli topped
     with a wee bit of olive oil and garlic salt.  Biscuits made last weekend and a salad.

Tuesday:  Slow Cooker Leaky Potato Soup,  salad and bread sticks.  or these bread sticks.
     I haven't made any of these before so a fun adventure.  and I will not be making the full recipes of either        bread stick recipe.  I do not need 48 bread sticks.  At least not until I know if they are fabulous or not.

Wednesday:  Salmon Cakes,  Cole slaw and roasted Brussels sprouts.
     Make the salmon mix early in the day or night before and chill.  This makes the patties easier to form.
     Brussels in the oven at 400 with some oil and s&p.  When almost starting to burn top with a tablespoon        or 2 of balsamic vinegar.  (I love honey and ginger infused white balsamic in this).

Thursday:   Burgers on the grill,  sweet potato fries and pasta salad.  simple.  make the pasta salad early or        the day before.  or buy some at the store.

Friday:   Pruney Pork Chops,  mashed potatoes, and some sort of veg.  green probably.  This broccoli                 would be great.  This all comes together quickly, especially if you make the broccoli sauce up to a                 couple of days ahead.

Saturday:   Pizza I'm sure, since it will make some room in the freezer.  I like to make pizza at home but the        effort is greatly under appreciated, so I never do any more.  It's okay.  I'm over it.

Other Stuff I plan to make this week:
Whole Wheat bread
Playgroup granola bars

This is a bare bones post to get us started,  I will try to improve as we go along.  Some pictures would be nice too, huh.
