Hello friends, how Is your week so far? It was such a nice weekend here, with perfect weather. I went on an annual tour of houses in an older area of our town. It always amazes me how absolutely GORGEOUS some peoples’ houses are inside. If you’re one who updates your decor frequently, take note that the current hot color is apparently gray. I was amazed by all the gray walls I saw — probably more than 50% of the walls. And check out this lady’s pantry, since we’re talking about cooking and menu planning:
What a thing of beauty! I asked the homeowner (who was there) if her pantry always looked like that, and she said yes. “I don’t really like clutter.” I am impressed.
On another cooking note — this Saturday was daughter #3’s band season kick-off potluck. I brought these, and they turned out good. I brought home an empty dish, which is a good sign. Easy, and recommended for a carry-in.
Here’s what this menu plan holds:
Monday: Fiesta Chili Bake — I have made this for years and we like it — got the recipe from a Del Monte tomato label.
Tuesday: fish night — I recently had a $10/$40 coupon for Aldi, and bought (among other things) a bag of tilapia
Wednesday: turkey breast (fixed in the crockpot), mashed potatoes, green beans — turkey breasts are on sale for .99/lb at Kroger, so I’m hoping to buy one this week.
Thursday: Taco Soup — this looks similar to my recipe. Looks like the heat is breaking this week, so hopefully soup will actually taste good.
Friday: leftovers — several are building up in the fridge. Treat for me — no cooking night! Yay!
What’s new in your world this week?
