Menu Plan Monday

Before we get to this week's menu, I wanted to say sorry to Carrie for grossing her out. I swear Wankerflots are totally's just our family's goofy name for doctored up refried beans. Started years ago with Gray whining, "I don't like beans!" To which Rich answered, "But they're not beans, they're Wankerflots. Just try them." To which, of course, Gray laughed, took a small bite, and promptly declared that he didn't like Wankerflots either. Anyway, the name stuck.

This week's menu is going to be rather short...because if all goes well, we're going to be heading out Friday afternoon for a weekend jaunt to visit both Fort Ticonderoga and Saratoga. Annie and I are so excited! Anyway, even if we are home for supper on Sunday...I'm NOT cooking. (It is Mother's Day, after all!) This week's menu also has a few hold-overs from last week...because, well, no matter how much we plan around here, something gets screwed up.

*Cheesy beef and bean enchiladas/Chili Cheese Puff/Wankerflots

*Taco Soup/Corn Muffins

*Salsa Pasta (which is just spaghetti with a sauce made from salsa and ricotta cheese)/Italian bread

*Ladle-It-On (which is just shells with a sauce of crushed tomatoes, basil, and garlic)/garlic bread/salad

I also wanted to mention that we tried a new recipe yesterday...and it was quite yummy! Max and I made this for his "preschool homework". Anyway, it is the perfect recipe for little ones! It's called Mud Pie Cake. Max loves helping me bake anyway, but this whole bag shaking thing...well, he really thought that was cool!

As always, thank you Laura for so graciously hosting!

We used to call Hummus - Peanut Butter so our son would eat it. And it worked. He loved it.
Your menu looks delicious. And have a Happy Mother's Day!

That's a smart boy you have there! We try the same tactics with Jake sometimes, but you can't get anything past that boy ;-)

Looks tasty!

No, I haven't made the smothered bacon chicken yet. I had it on my menu a few months ago but never got around to it. I'll be sure to post a review once I fix it.
