It’s a celebration week for our family, but also really busy.

Monday: Leftovers (nothing to really celebrate about that, but two of the family will be gone for dinner, so leftovers it is.)

Tuesday: Lentil Tamale Bake & Corn

Wednesday: Pretzel Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, & Green Beans (My oldest turns 18 on Friday and this is one of her favorites, so we’re having it on Wednesday because everyone will be home at a normal time.)

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Lettuce wraps, pot stickers, crab rangoon dip, & fresh veggies (This is my daughter’s 2nd choice, and it’s easier for me to put together and keep fresh waiting for everyone to get home from work and guests from out of town.)

Saturday: Tacos, fried rice & fresh veggies (we’re going to have a lot of out of town company that day, so tacos are a great way to feed a crowd.)

I have a couple of sickies this week. So we’re starting off the week with homemade soups. The rest of the week is planned, but negotiable because I’m not sure what they will be up to eating then.

But here’s the plan as of now.

Monday: Loaded Baked Potato Chowder (My 5 year old’s favorite soup, right now.)

Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Greek Chicken Pot Pie

Friday: Orange Chicken Lo Mein
