The 8 year old went to spend the weekend with his grandparents last minute, so my husband and I took advantage of a free evening and took in Skyfall on opening night as well as tried out a new Cajun restaurant in town. Can I just say Daniel Craig is the best James Bond since Sean Connery?
And the new Cajun restaurant is a keeper. I wish I'd taken pictures of the food. My husband got the crawfish etouffee. And I got a fried shrimp platter. Both were so good we could have eaten another whole helping each. We were told the seafood is shipped in straight from Louisiana and the owner/chef grew up in the 9th Ward in New Orleans. She moved here after Hurricane Katrina. I can't wait to go back and try her Po-Boy!
Sunday - Potato Soup, Salad, Bread
This is what we didn't make in lieu of going out to eat.
Monday - Chicken Spaghetti, Green Beans
Still working on using up shredded chicken. I also need to make a pot of black beans Monday to take to teacher appreciate day at the 8 year old's school. Our PTA does a luncheon for the teachers and staff once a month.
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Last week I bought a 5 pound pork roast on sale for $2.30 a pound!!! I've cut it into smaller portions for our family and will be using it in different ways over the next few weeks.
Wednesday - Beef and Bean Taquitos, Roasted Tomatilo Salsa, Cilantro Lime Rice
My husband and I loved these taquitos when I made them a few months ago. I hope the 8 year old does too.
Thursday - Chicken Crescent Rolls, Salad
One of the 8 year old's favorites. He gets so excited when he sees these on the table.
Friday - Creamy Tomato Soup, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Salad
This comes out to be a pretty cheap comfort food meal. My husband doesn't especially care for the tortellini in it, so I'll use penne or macaroni instead.
Saturday - Out
It's supposed to be a busy day and I'm thinking cooking will be the last thing I'll want to do.
