Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of February 29, 2016

Can you believe it’s already March? Okay, technically, tomorrow is March, but it’s close enough.

Last week, I spoke about how I didn’t know how my meal planning would go since I had been sick and had to go to the doctor. Well, Monday’s dinner burnt, so I made something else. Tuesday’s dinner went as planned. Hubby got us Chick-Fil-A since I was on our couch all day Wednesday. Thursday’s dinner was changed because I still felt crud in the morning when I had to put the dinner in the slow cooker. I went back to work but didn’t feel 100% on Friday, so we had Hot Head Burrito for supper.

When I went to the doctor’s office, I was told I had a touch of bronchitis and would be stuck with my cough for a while. Boo hiss. I also had a sinus infection and blocked ear tubes (basically an ear infection). I was put on medication to help fight all these issues.

Ohio’s weather had been a roller coaster – literally. On the 13th, we had a high in the teens. Then there was a gradual warm-up. By the 20th, it was in the ’60s, almost to 70. My poor sinus cavity could not handle all that change in air pressure.

My husband knew I was feeling better on Thursday when I decided to bake something in the kitchen. However, I almost forgot to put flour, an essential ingredient in sugar cookie bars. Oops. Once I made them, the boys raved over them.

Saturday, I cleaned out my cookbook collection. I looked at what I had and pulled out a few to help with inspiration for dinner.

Without further ado, here is our menu for the week.


Apricot chicken (new recipe – trying once again) over rice, mixed veggies


Quick and easy Parmesan chicken and pasta (my aunt’s recipe), salad, garlic bread


Lenten Soup Dinner


BLT Soup (new recipe), Salad, Buttermilk Cornbread


Cashew Chicken, Fried rice with leftover mixed veggies
