Gentle Readers, there is so much to love about spring: the weather, the additional vegetables in season, the flowers in bloom. However, the time change, not so much. Spring forward is the time equivalent of faceplanting for me–I do it unwillingly and inelegantly. Thus the hour of the post today.
This week’s menus feature some reprises from last week and a lesson learned. A schedule change meant I missed one dinner with the Jrs, one where we had planned for pork chops and gnocchi. They informed me that was a meal we would eat together as a family, not to be jobbed out to someone else. Way to go Jrs, I appreciate your feedback.
So, without further adieu and heading into a big week of party planning, we have the Weekly Menus:
The Four-Square Grocery List: 3/10/2013
Which all translates into:
Sunday: Breakfast for Dinner
A natural choice for a relaxed weekend.
Monday: Soup and Salad
An attempt at health! Let’s see how that goes.
Tuesday: Pasta and Salad
Cheese tortellini for the win. Also a meal that can be shifted around, as the week may demand some changes.
Wednesday: Pork Chops and Gnocchi
This will require more advanced planning for the thawing of the chops. But there will be fried sage, and all will be right with the universe.
Thursday: Veggie Burgers
A huge hit from last week, we added bacon and avocados. They were fantastic.
Friday: Leftover Day
Because this week is going to have some complications, I’m building in a day to consume whatever is leftover.
Saturday: Dine Out!
It’s time for the Eldest to choose, her pre-Birthday Dinner!
