Menu Plan Monday (Tuesday)

Today is finally MY Monday! Only it's Tuesday. Yesterday, the kids had a snow day. Only there wasn't any snow. See, that's just how we roll here on the South Carolina coast. We're used to balmy. The weatherman says possible ice and the schools shut down and folks don't leave their homes. So, my Monday was spent as an extra weekend day. No menu planning. Nothing constructive.  I did, however, enjoy the roads all to myself. Today, the kids had a 3 hour delay. The weatherman said that word again! Thankfully, they are all nestled quietly in the desks and I am enjoying MY Monday. On Tuesday. So, without further ado...

Monday: Cashew Carrot Ginger Soup; Grilled Cheese for the kiddos and bread for Hubster and myself

Tuesday: Barbecued Raspberry-Hoisin Chicken; brown rice, orange slices (OK; you caught me. This was on last week's menu. Truth: Life got in the way and I never fixed it. I think we ate Chick Fil-A instead. This week, I vow to make it.)

Wednesday: Corn & Broccoli Calzones; Salad

Thursday: Beef Tagine with Butternut Squash, cous cous

Friday: Chicken Larb

Saturday: Date night with the Hubster! (We deserve it. We've been trying unsuccessfully to get to our haven on the Ridge. We keep getting snowed out. By actual snow. Having no 4WD, we cannot possibly make it up the mountain. So, a date night is in order. We need to plan our next attempted visit.)

Menu Monday

How did you bring in the New Year? This is how the folks in Sydney did it. I, however, was home on my couch.

Well, it's 2011....Happy New Year!!! It's good to be back to structure, schedules, and ME-time. (That's what I'd hoped to write. Instead, I'm sitting her with the Princess who came down with a fever two days ago. She's better now but hasn't met the fever-free for 24 hour period yet. So, here she is with me on my last day off.)

Most of what I had planned to do today has been squashed. My menu, however, must get done!

Monday: turkey and balsamic onion quesadillas; green salad

Tuesday: barbecued raspberry-hoisin chicken; brown rice; orange slices

Wednesday: spaghetti with turkey meatballs; green salad

Thursday: soup; grilled cheese

Friday: homemade pizza

Saturday: We're celebrating Christmas for the last time this season with my brother and his family. No cooking for me!
