  • Menu Plan Monday: School’s back in session


    Today is the first day of school after a three-week winter break, but there was actually enough informal “homework” that I don’t feel we’re out of practice. Plus, one of the boys in the class had a birthday party yesterday, so it was nice to see some school friends before heading back today. I realized this past week that my pantry and freezer are quite well-stocked, so I am going to try to use up as many things as I can for the rest of the month.

    Monday – Pizza (using Artisan Bread Dough), Salad

    Tuesday – Miso Chicken, Rice, Sauteed Green Beans; this will also be a baking day for me: roasted pumpkin, sandwich bread, some kind of quick bread, cookies

    Wednesday – Tuna Pasta Salad

    Thursday – Sloppy Joes (using beef instead of turkey, since that’s what I have), Brioche Rolls, Roasted Vegetables

    Friday – Ham & Bean Soup (using the leftover bone-in Honeybaked Ham in the freezer), Artisan Bread

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner out

      Your Miso Chicken and your menu look very good. I would like to invite you to bring a dish to my Full Plate Thursday. Thank you for sharing and you have a great week!
