Hi everyone, and welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was nice; pretty quiet, but I like that. I had some of my piano student girls over on Saturday to “play” with some fun cupcake-making supplies I got recently. I will share more about that with you later in the week.
On the green and growing front, this is the current state of the forget-me-not flower seeds I got in Alaska on our trip. They were giving them out at one of the ports when we got off the ship. I was so excited when they sprouted — but now, as we enter the second half of September, I’m getting a little concerned that they won’t have time to flower. Fingers crossed!
On another plant topic — I love my Vancouver geranium. It’s not blooming, but the leaves are so pretty. They are reminiscent of the leaf on the Canadian flag — and I bring this up since we flew out of Vancouver on our way home from Alaska.
Also out in the garden, I discovered about five ripe strawberries this week! I have no idea what that is about, but I am thrilled, since that’s more than I got to eat in May and June (I blame the little critters in the garden then. I haven’t seen any lately — and I don’t want to think too hard about why that might be). I just enjoyed the strawberries with yogurt. Yum!
Okay, on to the week’s menu:
Monday: Turkey Soup — I baked a turkey breast last week and saved the carcass in the fridge for this —
Tuesday: Tater Tot Casserole — I’ve had this “pinned” a while and it looks good. I also make the Duggar family’s Tater Tot Casserole, but this one looks a little more substantial.
Wednesday: Chicken, Spinach, & Bean Quesadillas — made before, good (see top photo). Hmmmm — link doesn’t appear to work anymore. Bummer. I liked the recipe, and now I guess it’s lost to me.
Thursday: Fish night — I bought a bag of tilapia recently at Aldi. I’ll make some type of vegetable with this as well.
Friday: not sure what I’ll do — I am making the 3-hour journey to pick up daughter #1 at college, and heading back straight to a football game, where we will watch daughter #3 perform with her band. Maybe those at home will have to fend for themselves??
