Menu - April 26 - May2

Today's post is a little later than I wanted it to be... my son fell and cut his lip. He has quite a beautiful fat lip (it was/is so sad!)
Last week I decided to try a few Chinese recipes that I've always wanted to make. I bought the ingredients I needed and so we had Chinese food from Thursday to Sunday. I've decided that it takes some work to make Chinese food if you don't have a food processor and finely chop 5 cups of cabbage by hand!
I'm continuing my trial of putting a three letter code after each entry to let you all know if I have step by step (SBS) photo directions or if I have final photos only (FPO).  

Here is last week's menu:

Monday: Tuna 'burgers' SBS- My husband actually liked these! (He doesn't really like fish or any seafood for that matter...)

Tuesday: Broccoli Roll - FPO

Wednesday: Ate out - we did fast food because we were both pretty hungry - I got a jr. bacon cheeseburger, baked potato (sour cream & chive), and a side salad with a water to drink. I would have gotten a large salad but the two that did not have fried chicken both had blue cheese which I'm admitting I really do not enjoy the taste.

Thursday: Vegetarian Spring Rolls - FPO

Friday: Mongolian Barbecue (FPO) and Chinese Dumplings (SBS)

Saturday: Chinese Dumplings (SBS) and Sauteed Veggies over rice (I did not realize how many dumplings the recipe made... we will be having these for lunch for a couple of days!)

Sunday: Chinese Dumplings (SBS) and Steamed Asparagus with rice (My mom and I picked asparagus earlier in the afternoon for this dinner - fresh picked asparagus is wonderful!)

Let me know what you had for dinner last week and be sure to vote for which recipe you want to see on Thursday!


  1. I just found your blog. Looks great!
    Can you explain the sbs thing. Is there somewhere to go to see the step by step instructions? Sorry if I totally missed it LOL!

  2. I'm glad you found me! The SBS thing... Each week I post my menu and in the left column hold a poll to see which recipe all those who read the blog want me to post. I've just started labeling them SBS - which means I have step by step photos that I can post if that recipe wins or FPO (Final Photos Only) - I only have photos of the finished product. I hope that makes it more clear.

  3. Looks delicious! I love your menu plan for the week. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. Oh ok. I think I get it. :) Your recipes all look so yummy!
