Welcome to Menu Plan Monday, friends! This is one of those times of the year where things happen really quickly. Around here, all three girls have birthdays, I have my big annual piano recital, there are band concerts, dance recitals, AP tests, and so much more. I’m sure you are busy, too. And thankfully, the weather outside forms a beautiful backdrop for all this activity.
This week, we will head down to IU on Thursday to take a car to daughter #1. She’ll be running in the Indy Mini on her way home, and we’ll be bringing her fish (as well as a couple of rabbits she is pet-sitting this summer). So this summer we’ll have a tank of fish, 4 rabbits, a chinchilla, and a hedgehog. We’re almost an animal shelter!
Here is the week’s menu:
Monday: Prince William’s Cottage Pie — in honor of the Royal Wedding anniversary over the weekend. Plus, this is good! Congrats to William and Kate 🙂
Tuesday: Skillet Lasagna – easier than “regular” lasagna, and good. Plus, I have tomatoes that were on sale a week or two ago that need to be used.
Wednesday: Poppyseed chicken — a long-time favorite.
Thursday: Easy Manicotti — Daughter #2 is cooking since I won’t be home until close to piano lessons just before dinner. Nice!
Friday: Spinach Cheese Bread — this is a recipe I haven’t made in a while, but we used to enjoy it. I don’t use a hot roll mix or pre-made bread dough as the recipe calls for; I usually just mix up a bread dough mix in the bread machine.
