Hello, internet friends! I was trying to think of something to post a photo of from this past week, and wasn’t coming up with a lot. It was a busy week, as most are — lunches with friends, piano lessons, this and that — but nothing too photo-worthy. Well, there was this —
The week we returned from Alaska, I planted some forget-me-not seeds (they are Alaska’s state flower). That was the last week of June. I was despairing that they would have a chance to bloom before frost hit, but this last week, if you look really closely, maybe you’ll see what I did: the teeniest view of blue flowers, on the left. I love it!
Here are the menu plan recipes for the week:
Monday: Roasted Chicken and Vegetables – planned for last week, but an unplanned leftovers night has moved it to here. The house smells great when this is baking! Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a couple of carrots, a couple of 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 400.
Tuesday: Cheeseburger Buns — a favorite of the girls; they take a bit of time but are worth it. Basically, hamburger and cheese baked into bread dough.
Wednesday: Skinny Chicken and Spinach Alfredo — I’m not sure how “skinny” it is, but it’s good (see top photo).
Thursday: 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.
Friday: Savory Bean and Spinach Soup — it’s good Also bread from the bread machine.
2 qt. chicken broth
1 #10 can diced tomatoes
1 #10 can northern beans
1/2 box long grain wild rice
1 large onion, diced
1/2 bag of fresh spinach
