Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayMenu Plan Monday again, and it’s been a really crazy-good weekend here; hopefully for you too!

piano recital

Piano recital was Sunday. I have a Christmas recital/party in December, but this is the only recital of the year for parents and relatives. It’s fun! I made some refreshments for that.

sweet 16 party cake

Friday night was a belated Sweet 16 get-together for my oldest daughter. We had all kinds of goodies, including a Kit Kat M&M’s cake (so cute and easy to make!) and a delicious peanut butter “cheese” ball.

So, I’m not totally into planning a bit week of meals. Let’s take it easy here, and you can too — okay?

Monday: leftover lentil soup and homemade focaccia bread

Tuesday: Hamburger Stroganoff

This was my dad’s favorite recipe when I was growing up (we always called it straganoff), and he will be here Tuesday and Wednesday to do some painting for us.

Wednesday: Cheeseburger Buns – a favorite around here.

Thursday:  leftover buffet — the fridge has been filling up.

Friday:  Stir fry — I cut up a few carrots, a chicken breast, and add snow peas and cook that in a skillet with soy sauce. Add a package of beans sprouts and served with rice.

  1. AT our house, its clean out the freezer time….tonight its crockpot chicken pot pie, tomorrow may be hot dogs with homemade potato salad; Wednesday is a pork roast from the freezer that needs to be defrosted and eaten; Thursday will be breakfast for dinner night (pancakes, sausage from the freezer) and Friday will be Italian night using up more Italian sausage from the freezer. Whew! It will be good eating and a great way to defrost as well. 🙂

  2. I really enjoy the pictures! It will be exciting to see your home after the painting is finished. I am sure you are excited about this, too!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
