Finally updating- I'll be putting the menus for the past several weeks up for reference, but for now, here's how our meals for this week are shaping up.
I made (and tasted) for the first time ever, lemon squares last night. Dev came home from a date and asked me what I was making then has the nerve to say "Mom, why are you making those- little old ladies make those". I said "huh?" She looks at me like I'm nuts (I am but that is irrelevant, this was a different than normal look) "Well you know, they conjure up a mental pic of little old ladies bringing them to the church meeting or potluck".
"Uhh okay, Dev, but they looked really good and everyone is pinning them and I love lemons and I have these lemons and..."
"Sorry, mom, you're officially on the hill (HA- I won't be 50 for a couple of months, brat!- then you can say I am over the hill).
She said "lemon squares are really good mom, but really, I think old ladies are supposed to make them."
Regardless, I continued making them and holy cow those suckers are good! I couldn't stick with one recipe but took all the parts I liked from several and I'll post what we finally ended up with later because they are seriously delish (oh, and I added key lime juice too because I was a bit short of fresh lemon juice and I get antsy if I don't do something to shake things up). ;-)
And now, back to our regularly scheduled dinner menu:
Mahi mahi (girls new fave fish since Hawaii) - probably grilled, maybe with ginger/lime marinade of some sort; coleslaw; oven baked fries (choice of sweet potato or regular); fresh pineapple
Unrolled cabbage (layered casserole); mashed potatoes; corn
Potato leek soup; bacon, chive & cream cheese dinner muffins
Light & easy Chinese chicken salad or fruit & chicken dinner salad
Baked potatoes w/broccoli & cheese; salad w/choice of dressing
Breakfast for dinner: chocolate & white chocolate chip w/ macadamia nut waffles; turkey sausage links; fresh fruit
Chili - easy, no beans, w/sour cream, cheese & green onions served in a bread bowl (I'm going to experiment and see what I can come up with for some type of cornbread bowl since cornbread and chili just go together imo)
