Yes, there are some of the cake rolls residing in one of the freezers (see last week if you missed out on this). Some have already been distributed, and more will make their way to new homes this week. We bought a couple and they are really delicious!
It was a busy week, as usual. I went to a nearby elementary school to hear a piano student play.
Each grade at this school does their own musical during the year. Before a grade’s musical begins, the teacher lets each student who would like to play a piano (or violin or whatever) piece, kind of like a little recital. I think it’s a nice opportunity for the kids.
And on another day, friend and frequent commenter Leona and I revisited Charley Creek Inn (maybe you remember me telling you about it last year) for a fun lunch. I liked the way the tables had old sheet music with Indiana connections. We also made another stop. More on that later this week …
Oh, and I think I mentioned a while back that my “organ church” was remodeling. Yesterday was the first Sunday in the renovated sanctuary, with new carpeting, paint, and white rather than yellow lights in the lanterns. Even Jesus got a fresh coat of paint. It looked nice!
This week things have turned cold here! Daughter #3’s band qualified for state finals last Saturday in weather that was windy and in the 40s all day. Brrr! Imagine being out in that all day, and playing a cold metal flute part of the time! Thankfully, finals this coming Saturday will be held inside. Wish the Homestead Spartans luck! This is their 31st consecutive year at state finals. I figured out that the first year of that, I was a senior at IU. Wow.
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: Calico Beans — I’ve kind of gotten tired of this, but my husband loves it. So I pull it out every now and then.
Wednesday: BBQ Chicken Ranch Casserole — really tasty. Good for a cold day!
Thursday: Cheeseburger Pie — one of the kids’ favorites when they were little. It uses Bisquick, and the good news is that recently I learned that Meijer carries its own brand of Bisquick baking mix. Much cheaper and works just the same!
Friday: Chicken Parmesan — easy, and always a favorite
1 jar marinara sauce
4 chicken breast halves
2/3 c. shredded mozzarella
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. olive oil
Pour marinara sauce in bottom of ungreased 12 x 8 dish.
Place chicken over sauce.
In small bowl, mix cheeses, bread crumbs and oil. Sprinkle evenly over chicken.
Bake at 350 30-35 min.
Serve over noodles.
Also green beans, which I bought at the store this week.
