Menu Plan Monday has arrived again, for the first time this year in March. We got another several inches of snow yesterday, how about you? But I’m not seeing snow in this week’s forecast, so I’m taking it upon myself to declare winter over! We are supposed to reach above freezing at least one day this week, and I’ve learned that evaporation does happen even on days when we’re not that warm. Hopefully, within a few good weeks all this snow can melt and bulbs can begin peeking out of the dirt.
Meanwhile, menu planning. This week I was hampered by the fact that our Sunday paper didn’t include the Meijer ad, and that’s where I get most of my groceries! Annoying. I can use the ad online, but I think it’s just easier to page through the actual paper ad. How about you?
Monday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — this has become a family favorite — we are not bacon eaters so I leave that part out.
Tuesday: Tomato Soup with Israeli Couscous — I got the treat of visiting Trader Joe’s this weekend and bought couscous — not sure it’s Israeli, but I’m assuming any old couscous will do. I also bought naan bread there and we will eat that with it. Yum!
Wednesday: Make your own pizza — haven’t had this in a while. I make pizza crust dough and each person creates his/her own pizza with toppings of choice.
Thursday: Cannellini au Gratin — this looks good to me, and we do have a vegetarian in the house. Even though I’m not vegetarian, I really have never been much of a meat person. We’ll see how this is …
Friday: Skillet Lasagna -- this is so much easier than “regular” lasagna that it has pretty much replaced it for me.
