Holy cow, what a winter! So much snow, so many low temperatures, so much wind … pretty to look out at, but not so nice when you have to drive in it — which is inevitable, living about 7 miles from town.
One bright spot is the birds. They eat so much — I’ve been filling the feeder each day — that there are always some to see when I look out.
Anyway, this is menu plan Monday, so let’s get to the menu. I hope to pull this off this week. Monday is my shopping day, and it’s looking like a likely day-off-school for the kids, with a high of 5 and more wind. Hopefully the van can get me around to my 4-5 destinations without giving out. It’s also a busy week because Saturday is Indiana State School Music Association’s annual instrumental contest. I’m accompanying 7 kids for their solos, and will be fitting those times in all week in between my 12 piano students.
Monday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — this has become a family favorite. Great for a cold day!
Tuesday: Creamy Cheddar Tomato and Chicken Stew — noted this from this month’s Ladies’ Home Journal; looks good.
Thursday: (Hanging my head in shame): DiGiorno pizza. Okay, I’m not that ashamed — particularly because these do taste good, we don’t eat them too often, and there’s a great deal on them at Target this week. Check it out.
Friday: Chicken Jambalaya: no real recipe; I have a bottle of “One Step Seasonings” in the spice cabinet that’s several years old. I’d like to use it up, and this is the recipe on the label. Basically, grill chicken with 2 T of this seasoning, add a can of tomatoes, and serve over rice.
