Happy Menu Plan Monday, everyone! This is the first week of the season where we have snow predicted on the forecast — for this coming Sunday morning. I hope it won’t happen that soon, although the first snow is always exciting. And the weather is turning quickly, considering that yesterday I still was taking daily bike rides.
I went to a greenhouse about 45 minutes away with the local bonsai club, and rode along with a friend and her son. I didn’t really need any plants, but it’s always fun to look — even in this season, when things aren’t as sparkly-fresh as they were a few months ago. Daughter #3 participated in yet another band competition in the state capital. Busy time of year …
This week, I will somehow be fitting 55 cake rolls into my freezer. Daughter #3 sold them as part of a band fund raiser, and every year this event forces me to go through my two freezers and condense things in them as much as possible. Still, every year I wonder if I’ll be able to fit them all in. And for the past six years, somehow I have. So keep your fingers crossed for me!
Here’s how the coming week is shaping up, menu-wise:
Monday: Daughter #2 cooks
Tuesday: White Chicken Lasagna — a nice alternative to “regular” lasagna.
Wednesday: Hamburger Vegetable Soup — a great soup as the weather gets colder. Also probably naan bread. I’ve tried making it, but lately I’m finding packs of Stonefire Mini Naan bread at Meijer for $1. Hard to justify making it when I can buy it so cheap. And, of course — cake rolls for dessert.
Thursday: Slow Cooker (aka crockpot) Pizza Pasta — I’ve made it before, but it’s been a while.
Friday: Tortilla Soup (see recipe last week). I made enough that I still have half from last time 🙂
