Menu Plan Monday- Oct 1st, 2012
It's Monday! And I'm blogging :) I missed last week, yes. I had planned on blogging Tuesday night. I spent the night on my new Kindle that Mark got me for my birthday. And the next night. :) What can I say, he did good! Despite having practice till 6:30, thus I had to cook my own birthday meal, it was still very good. I had salmon in the freezer that I baked. Along with homemade gluten free bread, green beans, and salad. All the veggies in the salad except the carrots were from my garden. Have to admit to feeling proud about that fact.
I also made a green tomato pie for dessert. Aiden thought I should have made cake. But I wanted to try this recipe. I told him we would have cake for his birthday. I found this green tomato pie recipe in one of the 2011 summer issues of Organic Gardening. I can't remember which issue. It was very yummy. Basically it was green tomatoes, brown sugar, cinnamon and gluten free flour. I refused to tell the boys what was in the pie till after they ate it. I told them it would taste sorta like apple (which it did). They loved it. And when I told them what was in it they didn't seem to mind. So that was good.
So this week I'm heading to Kansas on Wednesday afternoon. I'm stay through the weekend, coming home on Monday. A college girlfriend, whom I lived with for a year, is getting married so I'm headed out to celebrate and attend the wedding. I"m so looking forward to this trip. Although I have to admit I'm freaking out alittle too. It will be the long time I've every been away from the boys. And I'm nervous about how things will be here at home without me. I though I'm sure everything will be fine. Sure it will be chaos. And Mark will probably get overwhelmed. But they will survive and have a good time without me. (I hope!) Anyway, because of this I"m only planning meals for today and tomorrow. So here it is.
Monday: Cheese Corn Chowder (More with Less cookbook)
Tuesday: Coconut Milk Curry over rice
Assuming I stay on top of things, I'll be back next week with a full menu! Have a good one.
