Menu Plan Monday. . .or Wednesday?

Okay, Helen, this one is for you! It's been a busy week! We are still eating! You might not have quite as many ideas of things to make, but we are still eating. . . JK! thanks for checking in on me!

Monday- Potato Soup, mesquite sausages (Thanks Oma!)
Tuesday- French Fries and Fish Sticks (homemade)
Wednesday-Grilled cheese and whatever else they have at the Fire Hall Open House (hot dogs, pizza, timbits, etc!)
Thursday- leftovers
Friday-BBq meatballs, rice or mashed potatoes and carrots
Saturday--Fudge Brownies
Sunday--bacon, crepes

My hubby wanted fudge-kind-of-brownies. I pulled out this recipe after searching and searching. He said this was not what he was thinking of. I said I was right, and I would prove it to him. So I made them. He said I was right--they were exactly what he was thinking of. (And he wasn't just saying this to make me happy!) Oh the personal glory!

These are from the back of a Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate Box
