Monday Meal Plan

First I want to wish my sister-in-law, Nina, a very Happy (blog belated, my bad) Birthday!

Nina and my baby brother

Another weekend has come to pass…I can’t believe that January is almost over, the meal plan ends in February!? Most days it feels like time is flying, has it always been like this? Have I never really noticed before? Or appreciated the moments as much? But that’s enough introverted, rumination for Monday…

Monday Meal Plan : 1.28-2.3

1.28 Monday*

Dinner: Leftovers night

*Extra*

Make rhubarb puree for rhubarb bars.

1.29 Tuesday

Dinner: Slow cooker tomatillo chicken tacos.

1.30 Wednesday  

Dinner: Chicken tikka masala w/basmati

1.31 Thursday 

Dinner: Eat the World: BOLIVIA. We’re skipping over Bhutan for the time being as we’re going to have a mini party with some friends and co-workers later in February. I’m super excited for that, but don’t want to lose steam with our countries either.

2.1 Friday

Breakfast: Toast w/milk & fruit

Tea Time: Ada will be at Terry’s…

Dinner: Dachtler Pizza Night! (Make an extra pizza to feed the freezer, along with some dough.) 

*Extra*

Make a double batch of roasted chickpeas & a batch of scones to finish off the next morning.

2.2 Saturday (Mom and Dad are here)

Breakfast: Fresh apple cinnamon scones.

Lunch: Shrimp & grits.

Tea: Rhubarb bars & assam w/milk & sugar

Dinner: Spinach mushroom bacon cheese fondue & dippers. I have been dying to try this and what better excuse than when we have visiting family? 

*Extra*

Complete rhubarb bars!

2.3 Super Bowl Sunday! (Mom and Dad are here) 

Breakfast: Baked egg boat with fruit, coffee & tea.

Lunch: Indian butter chicken w/basmati & roasted chickpeas (This stuff if good. Seriously good.)

Tea: Scone & assam w/milk & sugar

Dinner: @ Ernie & Eileen’s house for the Super Bowl!…Woo!! I’ll be bringing apps to the house: 

Slow cooker meatballs in a thai peanut chili sauce

Bacon jalapeno cheese ball w/crackers

And it’s quite possible that black bean salsa and/or some other goodies may join the party.

My Mom and Dad are coming this weekend, it’s been a long time since we last saw them, so I’m excited. I’m glad they’re staying overnight since Dylan’s going ice fishing with Ben on Saturday. I haven’t told the girls yet, but in my defense, the incessant questions of “Is it Saturday yet?” “Are Grandma and Grandpa coming yet?” “When are they coming?” invalidate any argument of cruelty.
