Last week was the first week since December that I did not post my menu for the week! I wasn't being a slacker. We were in San Antonio for the National Education Computing Conference. Both Corey and I were presenters at the conference. Yes, I mean Corey! My ever-so-ambitious 13-year-old son submitted his own proposal to present at an educational technology conference (the national one, of course) and got accepted. I guess that's what happens when your child is forced to go to computer trainings with his mom since the age of two. Poor guy. ;-) Anyway, we had a nice trip and our presentations went very well. A friend stayed at the house for us and took care of the dogs, which was nice for them so they didn't have to go to the kennel. Today we dropped the boy at scout camp for a week, and it's back to eMINTS training for me this week. We did have a great 4th of July cookout at our house with Eric's parents. I grilled chicken and brats, and made some fun appetizers and a great dessert.
My menu will reflect the fact that the boy is gone (yep, that means fish) and that I haven't had time to do a lot of planning. For more menu ideas, visit orgjunkie.com.
Sunday - got take out food from Yen Ching (taking advantage of the boy being gone - he hates Chinese food)
Monday - leftover Chinese (yes, I'm being lazy)
Tuesday - Fusilli with Shrimp and Spinich, Salad
Wednesday - Grilled Salmon (just marinated in viniagrette dressing), Brussels Sprouts, Salad, Peaches
Thursday - Chicken Fajita Salad, Strawberries
