You thought perhaps it had all caught up with me, all this silly menu planning promising, didn’t you? You thought I’d finally hit the wall. Well… I guess I did, but then I decided to scale it. Aren’t I tough? In truth I didn’t want to plan a menu today any more than I wanted to do laundry or get out of bed; however, I was compelled both by my promise to you and by the fact that I knew if I didn’t do the menu, I likely would continue only to feel worse about doing any of those things. A case of the blahs is not defeated by last minute ill-considered meal consumption, at least it’s not for me. So, with all of that undersell out of the way, I give you the week in food:
Monday: leftovers – what else can one do when the fridge is full of lots of single servings, the cook is tired, and there’s holiday decorating to be done?!
Tuesday: Shweet Potato Stew, brown bread, pickled carrots, and green salad
Wednesday: Green Bean and Potato Coconut Curry, cucumber slices, green salad
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: Dinner with Friends – Yay!
Sunday: Homemade Pasta with spinach and a green salad
Lunchbox Treats: Sweet Potato Cookies (I will make lots and freeze some for the holiday crowd)
Adult Lunches: Cold Kickin’ Soup (Gotta keep that immunity up for the holidays!)
Hope your week goes swimmingly, or at least treadingly!
