Menu Plan Monday- 11/26/12

Just got back from Kansas on Saturday. Despite the fact I left the house clean and we got everything unpacked and put away yesterday, I still feel unsettled. Why does it take time to resettle after traveling? You can dive right back into routines and still not feel the flow that your left. :( Oh well. Maybe tomorrow it will feel normal again. Maybe not. On the bright side, my mother sent home 15 lbs of ground beef, stews meat and leftover Thanksgiving ham. I'm a happy woman. And in celebration we had Cheese Burger Potato Soup tonight. I really love this recipe. It's just potato soup with ground beef and cheese added, but it's yummy. I don't make it often because I usually have something else planned for my beef. I don't buy it but once a month or so. Groundnut stew usually wins out. Anyway it's exciting to think about all the things we can eat with so much beef. Although I'm sure I'll try to stretch it, it's just who I am. :) Anyway here is the menu for the week.

Monday: Cheeseburger Potato Soup (from Simply in Season)
Tuesday: Sweet Potato and Red Lentil Curry
Wednesday: Fried Rice with Ham
Thursday: Sweet Potato and Black Bean Soup
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: Leftovers
Sunday: Simple meal or Popcorn and cheese

Menu Post- 11/5/12

Yes, I know it's Wednesday. I thought about posting yesterday. But since I had nothing profound to say about the election, it felt weird to think about posting a mundane menu post. Weird? Sure. Silly? Probably. But hey that's how I think sometimes. So here I am posting now. Don't have much else to share right now, so I think I'll just go straight to my menu.

Monday: Great Green Pasta (Simply in Season)), corn, chocolate gluten free cupcakes with blue icing- Aiden's choice for his birthday
Tuesday: Green Lentil Soup with Coconut milk and roasted sliced potatoes.
Wednesday: dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's
Thursday: Salsa Chicken with rice and beans
Friday: soup- probably some sorta winter squash soup. I have sweet potatoes, butternut and pumpkin to use
Saturday: Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito Salad (Simple in Season- served over tortilla chips rather than backed in tortillas)
Sunday: simple supper- most likely popcorn, cheese and apples.
