Menu Plan Monday 3-21-2016

pi day pies

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday! This has been a really nice week here; as I said earlier, my oldest daughter was home from college for spring break. It was really nice to have all three girls home. Of course, they have been for many years, but once they start leaving you realize you miss them!

We got two pies made for “pi day” 3/14. The first is peanut butter chocolate chip, the second apple. Middle daughter and I went to a local ballet performance which was really spectacular. I think I enjoyed it even more than my perennial favorite, The Nutcracker. I also got to go to lunch two different days with two different friends. There were just lots of fun things during the week. I hope yours was great also!

So, here we are at Easter week already. I really prefer Easter in April, but I guess it’s silly to complain about the Lord’s resurrection, so I won’t 🙂 At least, since we’ll be on the road, it will mean no cooking this weekend. That’s always a treat.

Here is the plan:

Monday: Cornbread-Topped Chili Casserole — clipped from a magazine; looks good.

Tuesday: Middle Eastern Chicken and Chickpea Stew another new recipe from the same magazine. I love Indian-type dishes.

Wednesday: One of my friends and I went to an international grocery store downtown last week after our lunch, and I bought a bag of these:

I guess you can’t really see them too well in the photo, but they just look like big crinkly chips. So I think I’ll have these and taco fixings …

Thursday: Chicken Noodle Soup — no real recipe; just chicken, broth, carrots, noodles, seasonings … yes, it’s spring, but the weather here is still pretty cool. Soup will still taste good.

Then it’s off for Easter — have a blessed one! What is on your menu plan (or your calendar) this week? I love reading your comments!

  1. I continue eating food I cooked two weeks ago Saturday. I do have some ham frying that I bought Christmas. It has been frozen. My leftovers would be gone had I stayed home last week, but I am glad I did not. I hope to brighten the desk of my principal and the school secretary this AM by bringing each a bouquet of forsythia from my garden area. One bouquet is in a blue Ball jar and the other is in a treasured white pitcher from my Grandma Kamman. Love isn’t love til you give it away. (I am NOT giving the containers away, I might add – just the forsythia.)

  2. Tostados are a nice change from tacos. As always, everything sounds good! You should get one of the Mousewood cookbooks at the library. You’ll like them.

  3. Your cornmeal chili casserole sounds good. Do you go north or south for this road trip? Have a wonderful Easter.

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