The first week of summer vacation is finally here! We are having a relaxing week with not many plans. I like to start out summer vacation slow and give the kids some time to unwind from the school year. We do have the girls’ dance rehearsals and recitals this week and the first of several high school band mini-camps this summer for Kiki. This is the first year that the girls have 2 different shows for the recital so that will be a busy day and we’ll be eating out. For the rest of the week, I’m preparing a fairly typical menu for us, however, this summer I’d like to experiment with some new recipes. I’ll be scouring my Pinterest Board and adding some new selections to our dinner menu and hopefully we’ll find a few that the family will want to add to our rotation.
Here’s what we are planning for this first week of vacation:
Monday- Thin spaghetti with spicy tomato & basil sauce served with a side of oven roasted broccoli and Pillsbury crescent rolls
Tuesday- “Mommy’s” Chicken (breaded & fried chicken cutlets) with a Spinach/Kale salad
Wednesday- Grilled Steak (hot dogs for the kids), oven baked french fries and Broccoli salad
Thursday- Leftover Night
Friday- Pizza Night – Frozen pizza, the kids’ fave is Freschetta Oven Baked 5 Cheese
Saturday-Mema’s Salmon- my mother-in-law’s recipe with a side of mashed potatoes and Spinach salad
Sunday- Recital Day -Dinner out tonight
What will you be eating this week?
