Welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! It was a nice weekend here; daughter #3 and I went to a bonsai workshop. We watched the “expert” style various club member’s plants.
This lady brought in a big clump of something, and the guy helped her separate it out into a “forest” of about six little plants. It looked really nice!
The coming week is busy too. We’re already gearing up for all the spring events that culminate in May with the end of the school year. This week begins two weeks of all three girls’ birthdays too, with daughter #3 turning 16!
Here’s out menu plan:
Monday: Ginger Salmon with Sesame Cucumbers — new recipe. Last weekend, on the way to our Easter destination, I read through several magazines and tore out several recipes that looked promising. This week’s Monday, Wednesday, and Friday recipes are all new ones from magazines.
Tuesday: Southwest Chicken Lasagna — I made two of these a couple of weeks ago, so one is coming out of the freezer. I have to accompany a girl at an audition at dinnertime. Frozen meals are perfect for nights like this.
Wednesday: Pasta with Walnut Pesto and Peas — I’ll probably use basil pesto rather than walnut as I don’t think any of us likes walnuts.
Thursday: Daughter #3 has selected Papa John’s pizza and “good ice cream” as her birthday meal. I am quite happy to not have to cook 🙂 “Good” ice cream probably involves something chocolate with lots more chocolate mix ins.
Friday: Coconut Curry Chicken and Chickpeas –– I never use chicken thighs though; I’ll use breasts instead.
