Wow, another week already! I am feeling my freedom slip away, as this week is my last week of maternity leave. This time next week, I'll be teaching language to my second class of beloved sixth graders.
Last week's menu was such a blessing; I loved having a game plan for each day. I will say that, on a couple of days, I changed my mind and made something else. That's acceptable, right? I mean, this is a menu PLAN, not a menu "commandment", after all.
Here's this week's plan:
Monday: Sausage Tortellini soup and breadsticks
Tuesday: baked chicken and garlic noodles
Wednesday: chili and garlic bread
Thursday: Thanksgiving feast!
Friday: Not-sagna pasta toss and garlic bread
Sunday: Chicken and Dumplings (Sunday dinner)
Summer sausage fried rice (after evening church service)
I'm purposely leaving Saturday undone. I want to see where we stand with Thanksgiving leftovers before I plan anything for that day!
If you didn't check out the recipe for Tuesday's baked chicken, you totally need to. I just saw it this morning on Rachael Ray. I don't have the ingredients for the poblano gravy, but I will totally try that sometime. The chicken (she used turkey on the show), looked AMAZING. I hope I can make it as mind-blowing as it looked!
I'm all set for a great week of home-cooked meals!
