Yay! My extremely busy week has ended! Congrats to the 14 band students I accompanied at ISSMA music contest, who earned 10 gold and 4 silver medals, and to daughter #1, whose quartet earned a gold as well:
As I accompany kids, and hear the good and the not-so-good, I’m still impressed at these kids who take the initiative to learn a piece well enough to perform it for a judge. That’s impressive to me, and I think they’re all winners, whatever their score.
So, we’re back to a week of more normal evenings and more normal cooking. Here goes:
Monday: Jumbo shells stuffed with cheese – from the back of a box of pasta in the pantry.
Tuesday: Bubble pizza – I made this a few weeks ago, and one daughter has been begging for an encore.
Wednesday: Chicken and noodles – make homemade noodles and add them to chicken, broth, carrots, celery, etc … yummy on a cold day.
Friday: Pesto chicken tortellini soup – calls for basil pesto, which I’m going to try making. I bought some last year for a recipe and a small jar was over $5. But the sprig of basil a daughter brought to September’s plant show is still going strong in the kitchen window, so …
What are you planning?
