Menu Plan Monday

My blog averages 40 unique visitors per day. (Double that in page loads, thanks to Grandmai refreshing hourly.) So imagine my surprise when I logged into my Statcounter summary last Wednesday and learned that several hundred people had checked out my last Menu Plan Monday!

Turns out my post was linked by several bigger parenting blogs:
Quick Serve Kids

Now the pressure's on for a pithy post! Sorry to disappoint, but this week will be an easy menu planning week. Daddy, in addition to his regular daytime gig, will be performing nightly this week. Then Friday at o'dark hundred he heads out of town for a weekend jazz festival so it's just me and the Little Heroes chowing down at dinner time.

My menu is all about Bittyman's favorite meals (that don't come with a toy):

Tater Beef Bake
Veggie Quesadillas
English Muffin Pizzas
French Toast & Sausages

(Ittyboy will eat anything that's put in front of him. Seriously. Just call the kid 'Hoover'. He did not inherit his big brother's picky eating habits. His taste du jour? Homemade guacamole!)

And of course what Daddy's-out-of-town weekend would not be complete without a trip to our favorite take-out restaurant, Pei Wei. (Daddy loathes Asian food. When he's gone we feast on crab wontons and honey seared crispy chicken.)

Hey! We're having veggie quesadillas this week, too! (they're so yum)
I hope it's a good week with you & the boys while your dh is away.
And way to go getting so many visitors! That's great! :)

I wish my son would eat anything. My youngest is so picky I have to make two dinners each night.

I posted my first Menu Monday this week. I love this idea and planned on doing it for a long time.

I created a new blog just for homey stuff. See my Monday Menu at

Hee hee! Now the pressure's on! :) Thank you for the link.

I only wish my child would eat quesadillas. My husband's from New Mexico, and between the two of us we can do some pretty amazing (and inexpensive and healthy) stuff between tortillas. Alas, she won't have it. She does put away the guacamole, though.

Like you, we eat lots of Asian while he's playing music (drums) or is out of town!
