Hello, Menu Plan Monday friends! I am really tired on Sunday as I write this, but never fear; I will not let you down 🙂 Saturday all day I went to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. All three daughters were there; the youngest was participating with her band in state marching band finals. This is the 7th year in a row I’ve been to this, and it never loses its excitement. The photo above shows a portion of all 10 class A bands on the field at the end of the program, waiting for results (hers is center left, in blue uniforms with the guard wearing “fire” costumes in front).
And my daughter’s band came in FIRST! It was a thrill. This first happened (for our family, at least) in 2011, when my oldest daughter was a freshman in band. It hasn’t happened since, so it’s not something to take for granted. We got home around 3 a.m., then church on Sunday morning, then a season-end potluck for lunch, then an organ recital across town after that, and … I am really tired, and now it’s Monday.
So, not a lot of extras this week. You will have to give us all some fun commentary in the comments.
Menu Plan Monday
Here’s the week’s menu plan —
Monday: Mrs. T’s Pierogies — I usually buy these when they’re on sale at Meijer. They’re a quick, tasty dinner — although Daughter #1, who ate some authentic pierogies in Poland this summer, says that these are not acceptable to her anymore 🙂
Tuesday: Pulled Chicken Sandwiches — easy when you buy a baguette from the store.
Wednesday: Hamburger Vegetable Soup — leftover from last time, yay!
Thursday: BBQ Chicken Ranch Casserole — also left from last week. Are you seeing a theme here? I am feeling the need for a break.
Friday: make-your-own pizzas where I make the crust dough and each person makes a personal pizza with toppings of choice.
