Weekly Meal Plan {plus last weeks review}

So THIS post is sort of delayed... but that is because we were out of town.... again! My birthday was during the week, but we celebrated ALL WEEKEND at my parents house and then in Clemson  (who, by the way, is ranked #5 now... woo hoo!!).
Birthday Celebration  #1
Notice my "funny" hubby included some "over the hill" candles.
I know he thinks he's funny but...he turns 31 this year!

Birthday Celebration  #2 (at my parents house)
Birthday Celebration #3

We just got home this afternoon and I was in NO mood to plan out a menu, but I gave it a half-hearted shot:

We were in GA and had mom's spaghetti sauce, YUM!

MONDAY - Finally home 8 hours later!
Was a mashup of leftover ham (thanks mom), a store bought quiche (ick) and some chef boyardee for the kiddos.

Chef Salad (it was a calorie-heavy weekend, so we need a break!)

Pasta with Salmon, Mushroom, & Spinach

Dad's Favorite Spicy Garlic Shrimp

FRIDAY (downtown Trick or Treating AND....)

CLEMSON GAME!!! So.... I'm going to go with tailgate food, although I haven't decided yet.

I did ok with photographing last weeks meals... it's a process! Anyway, here are the shots I did get:

Pecan Crusted Chicken with Mushrooms & Rice

Tilapia with Spinach & Tomatoes
Always a favorite!

Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche
So funny story about the Quiche... hubby does not do "egg" for dinner. Eggs are for breakfast (weirdo!). So I, who has been dying to try this recipe, do not tell him what we are having until after he has said "hmmmm house smells good" and it is almost ready.  I tell him, "it's a quiche" (quite happy with myself). Well he goes "I DON'T LIKE QUICHE, I've never liked quiche" (and so on a so forth). I, of course, get offended (I spent all day, blah blah blah and I didn't know you didn't like quiche), and say, well you HAVE to eat a bite, then if you don't like it, you can call for sushi.

With phone in hand, he tentatively takes a bite (and I'm sitting here fuming because hubby is an inconsiderate #$%*&*#$&$@*#) and I hear ".... actually it's pretty good".

Hubby had 4 helpings. Ha!
