Weekly Menu Plan–The One Where My Baby Grows Up

Sixteen years ago today was my due date when I was pregnant with Jon.  The little stinker wasn’t ready to come out yet, which is indicative of his personality.  Two days from now my “baby” will turn 16 and I am sending out a warning to all who live in Columbus – the boy is taking his driver’s test on Wednesday – clear the sidewalks! 

I have to share that no one in my immediate family passed their driver’s test the first time around.  I pray that this curse does not extend to Jon!  Both of my parents, myself and my sister all failed for one reason or another the first time around.  I did great on the maneuverability portion of my test.  During the driving portion, I went through a yellow light and it turned red, so I failed.  If I would have stopped, the car behind me would most likely have hit me, which would also have caused me to fail.  When I went to retake my test, the instructor asked me why I failed the first time around, because he saw no reason for me not to have passed.  I explained what had happened and he said he wouldn’t have failed me.  Too bad he wasn’t the instructor in the car at the time, right?

Good thing that Tuesday is “Taco Night” since that also happens to be one of Jon’s favorite meals!

Sunday – Leftovers – grilled chicken, burgers, baked beans and salad

Monday – Chicken fettucine Alfredo, steamed broccoli and salad

Tuesday – Taco Tuesday – soft tacos, black beans, corn and salad

Wednesday – Take-out – perhaps the boy can go pick it up with his sparkly new driver’s license?

Thursday – Perfect pork tenderloin, sweet potato puffs, green beans & salad

Friday – Make your own pizza and salad

Saturday – Pasta with marinutta sauce, roasted zucchini and salad
