Another week of menu plans is facing us … as I plan the week’s food on Sunday afternoons, I always think about the weather and changing seasons as well. This week we’ve seen some real progress towards spring: days in the 50s and even 60s, woo hoo! This week things are a bit colder, but still, I think we’ve turned a corner. It all makes me anxious to get outside, planting things in the garden – but I know it’s too soon. A few years back I remember starting tomato and pepper seeds inside in February, which was a bad idea. They grew too tall and spindly to make it outside. Now, I stick with an April 1 date for starting seedlings. It’ll be here soon …
This week’s Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: Italian Pasta Bake – this is from an old family favorites cookbook of mine, although I haven’t made it for quite awhile. My daughter was looking through the book and requested it.
Tuesday: Tacos – pretty self-explanatory
Wednesday: Turkey Soup – because I still have turkey in the freezer from baking a turkey just after Thanksgiving (not that I’m complaining) …
Thursday: Tater Tot Casserole – I’m a big fan of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” featuring the Duggar family (who have … 19 kids). This is one of their favorite recipes (I’m reading their book and got the recipe there).
Friday: Hmmmm … I have a blank on the menu here. But I did buy a couple of frozen pizzas on sale at Kroger yesterday, and maybe they were meant for this day!
