There is so much going on this week! Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday…just for starters. David and I each have a meeting one night this week, we have one together, and we are planning to attend a local production of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” later in the week. Despite all this we will be eating at home almost every night. So let’s take a look at this week’s menu:

I have a meeting at 5:30 so a quick meal when I get home is in order.
- veggie pasta sauce over fettucini
- toasted garlic bread
- Debi’s Jambalaya (recipe coming soon!)
- homemade potato salad
- green salad
- French bread
- King Cake for dessert
We have our church Ash Wednesday service at 6 and I have choir at 7. I don’t want to cook dinner at 8 or 8:30 p.m. so we are going eat very early before church. We celebrated Valentine’s Day with a mid-week trip to the city last week.
- Stuffed Bell Peppers
- roasted carrots
We are attending a political fundraiser dinner and I’ve been asked to contribute a pot of beans.
- Sweet and Spicy Shrimp
- Cheesy Grits
- Homemade Tomato Soup
- grilled cheese sandwiches
- orange slices
Mexican food after church and save half for dinner.

Woohoo! I found you! I think your Saturday night menu is one of my all time favorites – Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese! Your menu sounds great- what a busy week you have! I love your blog, and will definitely be visiting often!
Have a wonderful week!

Hi! I’m so happy you found me. 🙂 Drop in anytime.
Mardi Gras means just one thing for me: an excuse to have pancakes for dinner! Haha!
We’re doing Valentine’s Day late. We’ll order pizza or Chinese food next Monday (haven’t decided which yet).

Ha! We’ve often done pancakes on Mardi Gras, too. In fact, for many years I helped with a local organization which did a pancake supper in town. I decided to do jambalaya this time because it’s a New Orleans thing and because I’ve been wanting to share the recipe – probably tomorrow.
Enjoy your pancakes and your late Valentine’s Day celebration!
