Hello, friends! I hope you had a good week. Mine had a fun surprise. My middle daughter and I went to see Heidi Cruz when she came to town to open Ted Cruz’s campaign office here. We were in this crowded room, not knowing if we’d be able to see her above the taller heads around us when she came. Well, she made her entrance and stood right next to us as she gave her campaign talk. It was really neat! Of course, it’s hard to gauge someone based on ten minutes or so. But, she presented herself well and seemed kind to everyone I saw her interacting with. Have you encountered any candidates in this busy political year?
The Queen also celebrated her 90th birthday. In honor of her, I made these chocolate chip scones. They weren’t hard, and tasted delicious!
So, this will be a busy week ahead. My husband is gone for the next week or so on a business trip, so that always makes menu planning a bit more free and light-hearted. Daughter #3 also has a birthday (and her meal choice is an easy one for me)!
Here’s the week’s
Monday: Pasta Alla Genovese: Basically, it’s pasta mixed with French-cut green beans and basil pesto sauce. Very tasty, and a favorite of vegetarian daughter #2.
Tuesday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies —
Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a few carrots, a few potatoes – put in a roasting pan, then top with 1/3 c. olive oil and a packet of dry onion soup mix. Bake 45 minutes at 425.
Wednesday: Happy 15th to my youngest! She opts for Papa John’s pizza — maybe one of their cookies or “brookies” for dessert?
Thursday: pancakes and applesauce for dinner! Yum!
Friday: Turkey and Zucchini Enchiladas — I may make a double batch and freeze some.
So, what was new in your world this week? Any new recipes?
