Weekly Plan and Menu's 4/27 - 5/1

I started my very first carnival this past week. It's called From To-Do to Ta-Da and I made my first post on Saturday night but it can be done anytime, if you'd like to join in too. It is a look at how we did in our week. A report of progress we made, things we might need to modify and just overall accountability...

I missed only one of my menu items for the week, Chicken Fettuccini, so I'll be repeating it this week. We are leaving to do the spring round up (of cattle) at my dad's ranch this next weekend, so I only needed to plan through Friday this week as well.

Round up's are so much fun. My whole family gets together and we work cattle all day on Saturday and Sunday. We all bring really good food for the lunches, so those of us who aren't actually in the lots working cattle are in the kitchen visiting and putting the finishing touches on our food. I do a little bit of both, but there are some people who come and don't even work cattle at all, they just come to visit and watch...and eat!

Now for the plans and menu's this week. Menu items are in red.
