(Early) Monday Menu blog

Well I figured while I was sitting here on Saturday morning waiting for things to get moving, I'd post my menus for the next week. They're a bit abbreviated since I am leaving Thursday for my brother's wedding in Colorado.

Sunday-- dh is preparing a Mother's Day feast, so far consisting of at least steak and shrimp, not sure what else he has in mind...

Monday-- Ziti (sort of), salad, and softball practice for 6 year old. The "Ziti" is actually "Crock Pot Almost Lasagna" but dh won't let me call it Lasagna. I keep trying to defend it, saying, "that's why it is labeled 'Almost'!" He still doesn't buy it. ;o)

Tuesday-- Bread/Egg bake (I've explained this in an earlier post) with veggies and sausage

Wednesday-- leftovers

Thursday I leave; return Saturday, when we'll have frozen pizzas and salad.

Btw, tonight we're having fried catfish nuggets, baked potato fries, and dipping veggies. Need to thaw fish!

wow, I would love to know how you do those catfish nuggets. I have some in the freezer and don't know how to cook them. Great menu!

I use a batter to dip them in and this time I fried them in one of my cast iron skillets in about 1-1/2 inches of oil. They were SOOOO delicious this time-- even my horribly picky 3yo was going back 3 times for more! The trick to keeping them crispy, I finally figured out, was to drain them in a SINGLE layer on paper towel. We used to stack them as the drain plate got full, but that made them soggy.

Let me know if you'd like a batter recipe!

Thanks for the tip on the catfish nuggets!!I'm definitely pulling them out next week and making them. I have some fussy eaters here BUT they love chicken nuggets so I'm going to try what you suggested. Have a wonderful week!
