  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of Dec 30, 2013

    I am still trying to regroup after getting knocked out of commission for pretty much the last week by the worst flu I’ve had in years. So I’m sending the kids off to sports camp this week, where they’ll have a lot of fun and be entertained by someone other than me, while I try to recapture the feeling that I’ve got things under control. I am hoping to do some cooking and baking this week, and I know everyone’s tired of eating out, but honestly, I won’t think it’s the end of the world if I don’t get much done in the kitchen. I just want to feel like my old self by the time I’m typing up next week’s menu!

    But here’s what I’ve got {tentatively} planned:

    Monday – Pizza Snowballs, Crudite, Fruit

    Tuesday – Sashimi, Soba, some kind of vegetable

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Steak Sandwiches, Creamed Spinach

    Friday – Portugese Bean Soup

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out
