Nothing that will impress anyone and not on the "very" healthy side this week. Oh well....

Sunday-we had Ravioli's (yes, packaged ravioli's-think Italian Village, hubby went shopping and got what I told him was on sale lol) and the horror, jarred sauce. Not feeling like making my own this weekend.

Monday-we are having chicken nuggets (no not homemade but from a package that hubby picked up on his adventures food shopping this weekend), french fries (no not homemade this week either as I did a few weeks ago with red potatoes, salt, garlic and evoo-yum) think Ore-Ida (this time ds picked them out lol) and some type of veggie that the hubby makes

No order and just what we have:

Steak (possibly steak sandwiches or just steak and some sides), Pork Chops (marinated in some way and sides), Chicken (if hubby is cooking most likely chicken cutlets and sides), Pasta (and sauce), Lloyds Pulled Pork (yes the bad stuff from the container which the kids will eat so no battles there).

Sunday: Went to Casa Oaxaca in Adams Morgan with Geschichtsgal.  We both had Tres Moles for dinner.  Geschichtgal had hibiscus and ginger ice cream, strawberry sorbet and mango sorbet for dessert.  I had Tres Leches cake for dessert.  It was all mind blowingly delicious :)  Glad the walk from Metro to the hotel and then from the hotel to the restaurant was basically straight uphill!!   And that the walk after all that lovely food was mostly downhill :)

Tonight: Porkchops with spinach souffle and red pepper strips.

Tomorrow: Spicy Udon noodles with cucumber and red pepper in a red chile/honey/vinegar with Chicken.

Wednesday:  Braised pork shoulder "chops" (take a pork shoulder, cut it into chops, marinate it and braise) with cucumbers and cottage cheese.

Thursday: Lemon Chicken tenderloins with broccoli and a brown rice pilaf.

Friday: Salad with fake crab meat.

Can I please have the chicken w/white wine sauce recipe  and the pork and coconut peanut sauce recipe?  Both sound yum!

Dh left yesterday for a week in California, so I've got to do all the kid shuttling this week so trying to make kid favorites and meals easy to prepare ahead or things that can be eaten at different times/reheated easily.

Last night - kids got to choose from variety of leftovers.  I just had pasta with olive oil and freshly grated cheese.

Tonight - meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans

Tuesday - store bought roasted chicken, rice and edamame

Wednesday - homemade lasagna, salad

Thursday - chicken fried rice with broccoli on the side (dd asked for this so I suggested she make it for dinner - she is normally a baker, but she needs to learn how to make meals!)

Friday - probably pizza or out to eat since dh will still be OOT

I hate to be nitpicky but it's ravioli, not ravioli's.  It is an Italian word, and is already plural so no need to add the "s" on the end.  Just one of my pet peeves...

There's also no need for an apostrophe even if you don't mind getting the Italian incorrect. Unless the ravioli own something, of course.
