Menu Plan Monday 1/29/2018

flute choir warming up

Another Monday arrives, and a happy menu plan Monday to you all!

Above you see a photo of Daughter #3 and her flute choir warming up at ISSMA competition on Saturday. They played well and are going to state competition in a few weeks.  They played Mozart’s “The Magic Flute;” here it is if you’d like to listen. She got to play an alto flute for this, which she loved.

All 14 students I played for got first places at the competition, so there were lots of smiles. Five of them continue on to state, so the work is not finished yet, but generally I just run through those pieces again with the kids once before that.

Menu Plan

It’s kind of a relief to have a quieter week this week. Here’s the menu plan:

Monday: leftover buffet. Daughter #2 has done so much cooking that the fridge is full. We need to empty it out —

Tuesday: Tostadas. I bought a package of these at Dollar Tree half price on Sunday, thinking they could be the basis for a quick meal. I did some searching and found this one, which sounds good to me.

Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup — no real recipe; I just cook chicken and then add spices, carrots, peas, and noodles. Probably homemade noodles.

Thursday: Lasagna — just plain old lasagna, with spinach. Yum.

Friday: Fish, baked on a baking sheet with various chopped vegetables.

  1. Congratulations on your accomplishments Saturday. Same goes to Daughter #3 on playing so beautifully! Daughter 2 needs some lauding as well! I am SO proud of her cooking prowess! You are a great parent!

  2. You amaze me always at being able to plan out a whole work week list of evening meals so far ahead of time. As for me I never seem to get past one or two days. It won’t matter this week, since I am cleaning out the fridge in preparation for my upcoming trip to FL on Sunday for 11 days. YAY!
    I liked the tostado recipe and the fish and vegetables on a baking sheet. I haven’t done it that way before, so I will have to try it when I return from the sunny South.
    Sophie’s flute choir is awesome! It was easy to tell that they had practiced a lot to be so in sync with each other. Reminded my of my high school days of playing flute way way back in the day. 🙂

  3. Congratulations to you, Daughter #2 for her cooking prowess, and Daughter #3, for her musical prowess. You have a winning combination. Thankful that after all your years of cooking, you can now hand off the baton to one of your daughters on occasion.

  4. Congratulations on making it through such a busy, busy week! And how wonderful that everything went so well. What a talented family you are!! Experts on the piano and flute and a chef-in-residence!! This week should be boring in my kitchen, we are still eating leftovers from last week: crock-pot chicken and Boston butt roast. Both turned out so good. Also, hope to have baked fish one evening and veal cutlets another evening.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
