Jan 24-30

Sunday-  Complete BBQ chicken in the crock pot
   This was a big fat Sunday night disaster!!  I couldn't remember what time I had put dinner in and I burned the food.  YUCK!  However, I truly believe it would have been delicious if I would have pulled it out sooner.  We will try this again and I'll do better to not burn the food.  This is the first time I've ever burned a crock pot meal.  Oops!!

Monday-  Chick-Fil-A 

Tuesday-  Chicken Fiesta with Black Beans
   This meal turned out GREAT!  Everyone ate it up, but we all felt it needed more spice. 

Wednesday-  Baked Ziti
    This is my new favorite dish!  Yum, Yum, Yum!!!  And it's SO easy!  The only thing that would have been better was to have garlic breadsticks.  I didn't have time to make any bread.  I made this meal in the morning and split the recipe into 2 smaller casserole dishes.  I put one in the freezer and one in the fridge.  When we got home from our evening I put the ziti in the oven and 40 minutes later dinner was served.  I can't wait to see how the frozen ziti turns out.  If it works, I'll have to make a couple batches for the freezer for after the baby comes. 

Thursday-  No real dinner...Christian had ravioli, and Dave and I just munched on whatever sounded good.

Friday-  Roast
   It was very, very usual.

Saturday-  Stromboli

 All in all, I think I did much better this week.  I stuck to the menu, just switched a few days around.  Hopefully we will have more weeks like this.  It was super easy when it came to meal time.  Plus, we love having leftovers for lunch.  There's only so many turkey sandwiches you can eat in one week.
