Happy steamy Menu Plan Monday, everyone! I say steamy because yesterday we took a trip to Indiana Dunes, and it really was hot. Humid, and yuck. Thankfully, things are improving starting today (which is good, because daughter #3 begins her 3-week band camp which runs 8-4 each weekday). Up above you can see a shot of the sand dune and the water. And really, that’s about all of the dunes and water I need to see 🙂 I’m not much of a beach person. How about you?
The fair ended, and projects have all come home. Each of the two younger girls has two posters that go on to the state fair, and I will deliver those to the extension office this week. Oh, and daughter #2 brought my chinchilla to the 4-H pet show and won champion! That was a fun day, and I was very relieved when it ended, because the chinchilla is pretty wild and I was nervous he might escape the open-air area where the show is held. Also, chinchillas cannot tolerate heat, and this past week has been extremely hot and humid. I would show you a photo — but my camera card has apparently “gone bad.” Pray that we can recover the five months of photos that were on it …
The week to come, thankfully, will be a bit slower for me.
Here’s the menu plan:
Monday: Roasted Chicken and Vegetables – 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: fish — probably tilapia fillets, baked
Wednesday: Hamburger Helper lasagna — easy night, yay 🙂
Thursday: Daughter #2 cooks. Yay again! Lentil Baked Ziti
Friday: BBQ Chicken Ranch Casserole — another recipe I’ve made a few times over the past year or so. Really good.
