So, I know it’s a little odd to start off Menu Plan Monday with a photo from a greenhouse. But, Saturday was the January meeting of the bonsai club that daughter #3 and I belong to. That meeting is always at the huge local greenhouse that houses plants for the botanical gardens, zoo, etc. It is so nice to be in the warm buildings and see all the green before heading back out into the gray that is midwestern winter. So, I hope you enjoy the photo (taken in the area with succulents) as much as I enjoyed being there!
It is very cold here, and I made these delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast over the weekend. There is pudding in the mix, which keeps them moist. It makes a lot, but we are not having any trouble disposing of them. Recommended.
Here’s the plan for this week:
Monday: make your own pizza — I make the dough, then each family members puts toppings of choice onto individual pizzas
Tuesday: One Pot Spaghetti Marinara — new recipe to me; torn from a magazine I get.
Wednesday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — a favorite, and perfect for the night I don’t finish teaching until 6.
Thursday: lasagna — this is similar to my recipe, although I’ll have to cut down on the onion and eliminate the mushrooms, due to … ahem … family members. I bought a bag of spinach last week and this will be a good use for some of it.
Friday: fish night — some type of fish, probably with green beans and mashed potatoes.
