Not a Good Week

Well, my Menu Planning has fallen to the way-side this week. My house is full of sick people. Me included. We are one man short as the Hubster is out of town. What a joyous week this is turning out to be!

I can tell you that Monday night we ate grilled cheese made with Muenster Cheese. Did you know April is Grilled Cheese Month? Well, it's true. What's your favorite grilled cheese sandwich recipe?
Tuesday night, the Princess fixed me toast. I'm really not sure if anyone else in the house ate. I was in bed the entire day Tuesday. That toast was probably the best toast I'd ever had.
Today is Wednesday. I am thinking it's a good night for Pasta. Don't  know what I'll do with it yet. Gonna have to wait and see what I feel like around dinner time.
Tomorrow will be Thursday and my last night of the week to cook. Hoping to fix Grilled Polenta with Shrimp and Escarole.
Friday begins our Spring Break and we're headed to Atlanta. The Hubster will take Man-Cub and Not-Too-Big-To-Say-He-Loves-Me to a Braves game. I will take the Princess to the American Girl Doll Store. And, we will end our trip with Man-Cub and me going to the Bodies Exhibit. For the second half of Spring Break, we'll be headed to our home in NC. Hoping to get a lot of work done and take in Easter morning at the Sunrise Service at Chimney Rock.

Weekly Menu 4/4

My CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) pick up starts this week! I am so excited to be getting fresh, organic produce again. Yay! You'll notice I don't have a lot of veggies listed in my meal plan this week. That's because I'll decide what to serve once I pick up my share.

Want info on my CSA? I use Ambrose Family Farm located on Wadmalaw Island in South Carolina. My family of 5 splits an XL share with two other families. Each of those is a family of 4. As I'm sure your mind is calculating, that's a lot of veggies each week. It works for us but we're not vegetarians trying to survive only on what we get in our box each week. I encourage you to find a CSA in your area. Not only are you eating fresh veggies which are more nutritious, you are also supporting your local farmer. Everybody wins. Who's your farmer?

So here's my menu:

Monday: brats; cole slaw; sweet potato fries

Tuesday: Quesadillas; salad

Wednesday: Chickpea Burgers with Tahini Sauce

Thursday: Eat Out

Friday: Steak Skewers with Blue Cheese Dip; New Potatoes

Saturday: Birthday Dinner for Man-cub at my mother's house. It's his big 16!!!
