Menu Plan: 6/19 – Father’s Day & More

I always think of my poor sister every year when this week rolls around… it brings Father’s Day, my birthday, our parents’ anniversary, and our brother’s anniversary.  Added to that, it seems like graduations and weddings are common right around this time.  That’s a whole lot to keep track of!    It’s chaos around here this week with school STILL in session, a new karate class starting up and the overlap of baseball and swimming lessons.  I have some end-of-the-year parties and meetings to attend and holidays to celebrate.  Oh yeah- and I’ll be drawing a winner for this fantabulous giveaway!


So, with all that in mind, here’s what we’ll be serving up this busy-bee week.

B-Cereal, Yogurt, Juice
L-Biscuits & Sausage Gravy (I detest this meal, but the rest of the family loves it… and, well, it’s Father’s Day. :))
D-Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s– never fear!   My hubby is still getting the ever-popular Seafood Crepes that he requested long ago.


B-Rice Chex, Apples, Milk for the kids  (Me?  I’m having black coffee and Count Chocula.  Go ahead and judge me.  It’s my birthday and a chaotically busy day.  I want simple and sugar.  Haven’t had that cereal for probably 20 years, so we’ll see if it even tastes good. ;))
L-Turkey & Swiss Cheese Lettuce Wraps, Pretzels, Water
D-Scrambled Eggs w/ Cheese, Cinnamon Rolls (Wanna come for supper, Amy? ;))

B-Banana Walnut Oatmeal, Milk
L-Egg Sandwiches, Oranges, Water
D-Dinner at my grandma’s assisted living facility; the kids and I will head up there after their field day at school.


B-Eggs & Toast, Apples, Milk
L-Buttered Noodles w/ Peas, Water


B-PB Raisin Toast, Milk
L-Buttered Noodles w/ Peas, Water
D-Grilled Cheese, Tangelo Slices (Do you all like tangelos?  We think they’re delish!), Water (all to-go… baseball practice)


B-Smoothies, Toast
L-Cheesy Beans & Rice, Water (Several of you have asked for this recipe, but I’ve been hesitant to post it because it’s really not much of a “recipe”… do you still want me to post the general method I use here?)
D-Salsa Cheddar Pizza (My kids LOVE this combo… and it’s so simple.)
B-Egg in a Hole, Juice
L-Stuffed Breadsticks, Apples, Milk
D-Beefy Mac & Cheese, Mixed Veggies, Salad

  • I canNOT believe you are STILL in school! We’ve been out for a month!

    And yes, of course I’ll take some cinnamon rolls.

    Enjoy that Count Chocula!

    • Isn’t it ridiculous about the school? And I’d almost guarantee we go back before you… I know we started before you in the fall (well, summer really.) Feels like the kids hardly get break! It’s the eggs with cheese I’d hoped to lure you with… ;)

  • Happy Birthday! and I am so sorry they’ve changed the formula. Count Chocula is not the magical wonder it once was and it’s not because you’ve aged…it’s because it’s just not a good anymore. :(

    Just wanted to let you know I tried your battered chicken sandwiches for my husband for his Father’s Day dinner and he loved them! We even had leftovers to bring to lunch today. He had to work for his dinner though since I’m pregnant and dealing with a lot of round ligament pain, so he was there in the kitchen cooking too! It was a hit in our family! Do you have any suggestions on how to keep the breading on better? When I cut up the chicken for my 2 yr old all the breading came off.

    • Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Now… regarding the coating coming off. I know what you mean, because I can see it separate when I cut a sandwich in half for my girls. It might help to coat the chicken cutlet in just plain flour BEFORE the batter. It might adhere better that way. If you think your 2yo could handle biting off strips, that would be my other suggestion. I think it would probably stay on decently well as long as there were always “edges” involved. Does that make sense? :)
