Wednesday Menu...on Thursday and some other stuff

What are we eating this week?

Here is the link to this weeks menu...WEEK 2

Things have been a bit crazy around here because of a new class I'm taking, Noodle had a gymnastics meet, Pumpkin is directing a one act play and is Crew Head for show choir  and my Superman had to travel to Dallas.
