Dine Without Whine - A Family 

Friendly Weekly Menu Plan
Menu Planning Monday: Too Many Hamburgers!
I have four problems. I am trying to lose five pounds by my birthday, which is now only 6 days away. Hamburgers are high in fat. I hate throwing out food. And I have two boxes of hamburger patties which must get eaten up.

Somehow all these things do not go together.

Yesterday our Bible quizzing group from church had a barbecue for all the youth involved, and I brought tons of hamburgers which didn't get eaten. But they were out of the freezer for long enough that they defrosted. So now they must be eaten. I shall have to throw a huge barbecue myself so that other people will eat them!

But that leads me to another problem. We bought a new barbecue yesterday, but it is currently sitting in a box, and must be put together. My husband has ten years of post-graduate education, but I doubt he can put a barbecue together in less than four hours. So chances of it being ready to go soon are slim.

Assuming he does get it ready, though, here are my plans for the week:

Monday: Leftovers. I love leftovers. I have chicken leftovers and some soup leftovers, and we shall eat those and be merry.

Tuesday: BARBECUED HAMBURGERS! I'm having another family over, and they're bringing a Caesar salad. I'll cut up lots of veggies, and we'll munch on that.

Wednesday: Pork roast. Sounds yummy. I love putting maple syrup and dijon mustard on the pork roast by cutting slashes in the top and letting it dribble in. Cook at 325 and it tastes really moist. Then serve with rice and veggies, and you're good to go.

Thursday: Spaghetti! It's Rebecca's turn to cook, so I'll let her make it. I'm big on teaching kids 11 and up to make dinner at least once a week.

For the rest of the weekend I'm speaking in Ottawa, and I think the family is coming with me. This is the second last big speaking engagement I have until the fall, so I almost have time to relax!

If you have extra burgers, just grill them all! Then break them up into small chunks, freeze, and use in your next batch of chili. It works great as long as you didn't make cheeseburgers out of them, and the grilling adds a little extra smoky flavor to the chili. Yummy...
