So November has arrived. For the past four years, since I’ve had a child in marching band, it always seems to come careening into view, since October is so filled with marching competitions and practices. This year is the same — my daughter got home from semi-state competition “early” last night (prior to 11 p.m.), and this coming Saturday her band competes at Lucas Oil Stadium. Wish the Homestead Spartans well! They truly have worked hard.
In case you spent too much time last week wondering whether or not I fit all 31 of the band-supporting cake rolls into my freezers … the answer is “yes.” Up top, there’s a photo of the inside of one of the freezers. About 1/3 of them have been delivered, and I’ll keep whittling that number down this week.
As to the menu this week, I apologize that it’s not all that exciting. My husband is out of town for work, and that always lends an air of freedom to the household that extends to my menu planning. I’m sure some of you can relate 🙂
Here’s the plan:
Tuesday: Chicken Pot Pie
Wednesday: support-the-band night at Arby’s … sounds like a good excuse to eat there.
Thursday: leftover soups from last week and a loaf of homemade bread
Friday: Pasta Alla Genovese: Basically, it’s pasta mixed with French-cut green beans and basil pesto sauce. Very tasty, and a favorite of vegan daughter #2.
