Menu for the week of October 17th

Thank goodness for slow(er) weeks! This week we have a much needed slow week- that is until Saturday. Saturday my husband and I are running in the inaugural Cincinnati Half Marathon. I have been training for it since Memorial Day weekend (my husband has not really trained much at all- he has run maybe five or six times- he got bored after he ran the Flying Pig Half Marathon in May). Immediately following the run we have to take J to his last soccer game of the year (we can't miss it since my husband is the coach) then we have a birthday party to go to.

Sunday- Hamburgers

Monday- Slow Cooked Curried Coconut Chicken ($5 dinners:

Tuesday-Chicken Fried pork chops- I am going to bread the pork in panko and then pan fry them

Wednesday- Beef Stroganoff ($5 dinners:

Thursday- Chicken Taco Soup- This recipe is a favorite and really easy!

1 chopped onion
2 tsp minced garlic
1 can chicken broth (if you cannot have soy be sure to check your labels!)
1 can chili beans
1 can black beans
1 can corn
2 cans diced tomatoes (if you like it spicy you can use tomatoes with green chilies)
2 chicken breasts- cooked and chopped
2 tbsp taco seasoning

In a big pot saute onion and garlic in oil until translucent. Dump all the other ingredients into the pot and cook at least until hot. Top with tortilla chips

Friday- Spaghetti- my husband and I will be carbo loading this night, on Saturday we will both be running the inaugural Cincinnati Half Marathon

Saturday- Birthday party and marathon day- leftovers or whatever we have the energy for!
