A happy Menu Plan Monday to you all!
What has your past week been like? Typical summer week here, although the weekend was busy. Yesterday we traveled 3 hours away to enjoy a niece’s graduation celebration. The entire trip was made in under 24 hours due to work schedules — not ideal, but we are grateful for jobs 😉 This week is the week when 4-H projects are finished and taken to the fair, and foods items are prepared and taken in as well. The girls are not as “into” this as I was (and am), but still, it’s an exciting time of the year.
Everyone still eats this week, too. So here’s the plan …
Monday: Stir Fry — no special recipe; I just cook some chicken, alfalfa sprouts, carrots, and snap peas (from the garden) in soy sauce and serve with rice.
Tuesday: We’ll be visiting Chick-fil-A for their annual Cow Appreciation Day. Wear anything cow-like, get a free entree, all day long. We have enjoyed this day for years. I’ll confess I’m a bit disappointed this year that it’s just an entree (in the past, if you dressed like a cow, you got a full meal), but still — it’s very generous of the company. And, it’s fun. And — this is the day non-perishable items are taken to and judged at the fair, so I’ll be ready for a bit of a break.
Need some ideas on how to dress like a cow? I made a Pinterest idea board just for this!
Wednesday: Make your own pizza — I make dough; each person creates his/her own pizza with toppings of choice. My current favorite is basil pesto sauce with onions.
Thursday: Cheese Steak Quesadillas — I’ve made these before and they are tasty.
Friday: Mexican Tamale Pies — another tried-and-true favorite.
And with that, let’s get on with the week. What will you be eating the next few days?
