Happy menu plan Monday to all you friends in internet land. The picture shows my Saturday — traveling to the state capital for state solo contest, where I played piano for three students. There’s always so much chaos, excitement, and energy around these contests. People happy. People sad. People hurrying. Hot rooms. Cold rooms. More than many other events these days, people actually talking to each other, rather than being absorbed constantly in their phones. It’s now over for another year, and as usual, I have enjoyed it.
So, spring begins this week. Well, not officially, but March arrives, and that always feels like spring. Ash Wednesday and Lent also come this week. I didn’t grow up in the tradition of those observances, but I often play organ now at a church that does observe them, so for the next several Wednesdays I’ll be traveling out to the country to play on those evenings. It’s always nice to observe the lengthening amounts of daylight, and to slow down and focus on God for a while.
After a great week of no cooking thanks to daughter #2, I’m back in the kitchen this week. Here are the plans:
Monday: Wendy’s Chili — leftover, yay! Plus leftover rolls that daughter #2 made last week (they keep pretty well when frozen soon after baking).
Tuesday: fish — I bought cod at Trader Joe’s this week. I will dip it in bread crumbs and make on the stovetop. Some kind of vegetable as well.
Wednesday: Crockpot chicken taco fixings and these delicious-looking tortillas from a Trader Joe’s stop on Saturday —
Thursday: Coconut Curry chicken and Chickpeas — from a recent magazine. Looks good; we like Indian-themed dishes.
Friday: Fiesta BBQ Chicken nachos — maybe with ground turkey instead of chicken. Another recipe torn from a magazine.
