Happy Halloween and Menu Plan Monday!
This past Saturday daughter #3 and I were at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the state marching band finals, which D3 participated in. Daughter #1 came up for the event from her college, as well as other relatives. The band did great, and I enjoyed watching about 25 bands perform that day. Congrats to Homestead band on their 3rd place finish!
One of the nicest moments of the evening is the end, when our band’s alumni stand over the “tunnel” that all the bands exit from. They cheer on all the bands as they leave. It’s a really neat tradition. Here they are cheering, as Homestead exits.
I got home from all this just before 3 a.m. So, I was pretty groggy Sunday morning. I made it to church, then the band potluck dinner, and am pretty much back to normal now.
This week, I’m picking up 41 cake rolls my daughter sold for band. In preparation for that, I’ve been clearing out the freezer as best I can.
Here’s the menu plan for the week:
Monday: White Chicken Lasagna — yes, originally planned for Friday. But a fridge full of leftovers resulted in an unexpected leftovers dinner.
Tuesday: pancakes and applesauce — one of my favorite dinners; haven’t had them in a while.
Wednesday: White Chicken Chili — a nice alternative to “regular” chili, and the weather is cooling off enough that chili should taste good.
Thursday: Deep Dish Tortilla Bean Strata –– from the family favorites cookbook.
Friday: chicken helper — I’m tired!
What’s new in your world this week? I always enjoy hearing from you in the comments.
