Menu ~YUM~ and cookie recipes needed!

Here is a late menu for the week (which actually started yesterday). I am having back problems so my post will be short today. I've got a lot on my mind and would love to sit down and write all about what God has been showing me (I think my blog is in need of a God post!!). Maybe later tonight if my back is doing ok. It just seems to make it worse when I sit here at the computer! Here is the menu:

Minestrone Soup (Crock Pot), french bread
Spaghetti and salad
Italian Pizza Calzones, steamed veggies
Swedish Meatballs and lima beans, sliced fruit
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

We had the Swedish meatballs last night and I wasn't really a fan. Something about the sauce just wasn't good. I think I'll stick to stroganoff next time. One thing about last night though was that I had forgotten how much I love lima beans. Weird, I know! I rarely ever think about them though. They were so good (well, at least I thought so)! Tonight is spaghetti! Tomorrow I'm making soup for the weekend and then Monday we'll have Italian pizza calzones. The recipe is from Menus4Moms. The only change I'm making is that I'm using pizza dough instead of crescent rolls. It should make enough for Monday and Tuesday and then Wed being a church night will be soup and sandwiches! I'm gonna start baking next week and would love some tried and true cookie recipes. Please share some with me! :) I'm really wanting to make these!
