Oh, my, it’s Monday again.
How did this happen?
Over and over and over again – Monday just keeps sneaking up on us.
Someone really should do something about that.
I’m sitting in my office on this gloomy, rainy Monday morning with my Jabba-the-hut kitty cat sitting in my lap (my legs will be numb soon) and I’m contemplating the week’s activities and menu planning.
It is supposed to rain all day and into tomorrow – which means, to me, it’s a day for soup! I’m trying out a white bean chicken chili. If it turns out well, I’ll share the recipe with you later in the week. I’ve just concocted something based on reading several recipes online and taking a little from this one and a little from that. We’ll see how it turns out.
As for the rest of the week, here’s what I’ve got planned.
|Monday||White Bean Chicken Chili||leftover chili mac|
|Tuesday||leftover fajitas||white bean chicken chili|
|Wednesday||Chicken Fried Rice||Salads|
|Thursday||Cheesy breadsticks w/ marinara sauce||TBD|
|Friday||dinner out||cheesy breadsticks with a salad|
|Saturday||Atlanta Greek Festival (?)||sandwiches|
I’ve also got to make some sweets for the girls’ lunches. I’m thinking of trying the Pioneer Woman’s granola bars. I’m hoping they turn out better than the last type I made – those fell apart. They were tasty, but they didn’t hold up very well. More crumbly than bar-y.
I’ll probably also make a cake – I made an apple cake on Saturday but it disappeared last night at our gathering with our friends from church. I love that – when people devour something I cook. Makes my heart happy.
So, that’s my week in the kitchen. If I come up with anything good, I’ll be sure to share with you here on the blog.
What’s cookin’ in your kitchen this weekend?
