I’m linking up with Mary Ellen Barrett’s weekly menu feature.
Here’s our menu for the week, including one carryover item since our Friday dinner became Last-Minute Shrimp Fried Rice. (You won’t believe the secret ingredient!)
MONDAY: Slow-cooker Chicken Adobo with rice.
TUESDAY: Tacos and a salad.
WEDNESDAY: Spaghetti and meatballs (our Wednesday tradition!)
THURSDAY: Beef and noodles–a new recipe from Sarah Reinhard, who keeps telling me she can’t cook, but knows how to make gravy. I haven’t mastered that skill! If I manage not to ruin this, I’ll include the link in next week’s menu post. On the side: green beans.
MEATLESS FRIDAY: Vodka pasta and a salad.
SATURDAY: We’ll be eating at the Polish Kitchen at our parish’s Fall Festival. I’m looking forward to some homemade kluski and golabki.
SUNDAY: Chicken and noodles. Maybe. I just realized just how many times we’re having noodles or pasta, all in a row. (Not that I mind, because I could eat noodles every day of the week.) So this one might change.
As always, I write my menus in pencil because who knows what the week will bring? On Friday, for example, I spent the morning as I usually do: volunteering in the school library. I left at 11:35 and said goodbye to the secretary, who called my cell phone 10 minutes later as I parked the van in my driveway. They needed an emergency sub for the afternoon in second grade. I didn’t remember to take out the pasta sauce to defrost when I ran inside to grab my Substitute Teacher’s Bag of Tricks, so we had to go to Plan B, which was magically delicious.
