Menu Plan Monday

What a week we have planned. This is the week of extra activities. Band & choir concerts, basketball game, hosting a scholarship competition for 3rd year architecture students at work which will mean a long day and dinner out with guest architects, Christmas shopping, B3 is hosting a gift exchange on Friday evening, and a graduation party.

Given all those extras on our calendar, it's going to have to be an easy week (and organized) in the kitchen or else I'll be in the drive-thru line every night.

I was busy in the kitchen this weekend. Here's what I accomplished.
  • Cabernet Roasted Walnuts (double batch)

  • Date Nut Bars

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Vanilla Pecan Refrigerator Cookies

  • Apple Pie

I'll be packaging these up to give as gifts and some of the cookies will be refreshments at B3's gift exchange on Friday. The apple pie is for the Feast of Carols band & choir concert tomorrow night.

I know some would see all that baking as work but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The best part was that I stayed in my pajamas until I was all done! I love spending days like that.

On the menu this week --

Monday - Tuna Patties, french fries, steamed veggies (carry over from last week)

Tuesday - Broccoli Cheese Soup, crusty bread

Wednesday - on your own

Thursday - Country Breakfast Pie or Quiche

Friday - chicken something in the crockpot

Saturday - we'll be eating at the graduation party we're attending

Enjoy the week. To see what others have planned, go to Menu Plan Monday.
