I am bound and determined to get it in gear this week. My goal is to get back on the Fly Lady bandwagon, gain control of my diet/exercise program, and to commit to menu planning again.
I used to participate in Menu Planning Monday over at the Organizing Junkie. There is something about putting your weekly menu plan out there for all to see that makes you a little more committed to sticking to it each week. For your viewing pleasure, here is what is on the menu at the Dine & Dish household this week.
- Monday: Chicken Chilaquiles from Cooking Light (using leftover rotisserie chicken from Sunday)
- Tuesday: Steak with Golden Zucchini from Real Simple Magazine
- Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
- Thursday: Fajita Skillet from Simple & Delicious Magazine
- Friday: Homemade Pizza
- Saturday: Sausage and Pepper Calzones from Cooking Light Magazine
- Sunday: Beef & Veggie Stir Fry (lunch), Tilapia Piccata (dinner)
Earlier in the day yesterday, we had told the kids that in the evening we would light the outdoor fire pit and make S’Mores. It had been fairly cool all week, but of course last night it turned out to be sticky and warm, so my hubby felt like it was too warm to light the fire pit. I had a couple of disappointed kids when they heard the news that there would be no marshmallow roasting. When we came inside, I looked at all the S’mores ingredients laying out and suddenly remembered the cookbook I borrowed from my sisters house this summer. It was a Pampered Chef cookbook called Delightful Desserts. The recipe that I remembered was for oven S’mores, called S’mores Galore. I adapted the recipe to fit a 9×13 casserole dish and just played things a little by ear. As gooey as campfire s’mores with the same roasted flavor, this is one dessert that will turn disappointed tears into cheers.
