weekly menu:: week 39

humming right along as we start the 4th week of school.  everyone seems like they've adjusted to the new schedule, even me.
over the weekend we had dinner with some friends and then went to our school for family movie night.  this is one of my favorite events of the year.  families come, set up blankets and chairs and watch a movie on the grass.  saturday night the feature was "tangled".   it's a great way to enjoy a movie under the stars.
sunday jordan had another swim meet.  he's been improving so much this season thanks to consistent coaching and more interest on his part.  he swam all four strokes and the freestyle leg of the team medley relay.  he ended up with 3 medals and took 14 seconds off his butterfly stroke! he's looking better and better every week.  

nothing too exciting this week other than the staff luncheon that we are hosting on friday for the teachers and staff at our school.  we have a little surprise in store and i can't wait to see how it works out.

ready for the menu?
macaroni and cheese from last week

making this week:
monday: autumn chopped salad with chicken
tuesday: grilled shrimp with lemon basil pasta (hoping to lighten up this recipe)
wednesday: enchilada casserole, salad
thursday: apricot glazed salmon, roasted potatoes, green beans
friday: chicken mole and rice - going to my brother's house to celebrate his birthday
saturday:  hoping my sister-in-law will share some mole to make enmoladas (enchiladas with mole sauce)
sunday: eat out

baking this week:
i wanted to make banana bread this week, but the kids ate all the bananas.  the good thing is that i have a huge zucchini in the fridge so chocolate chip zucchini bread it is.

hope your week is delicious!
