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.

Shrimp fried rice looks very promising!
Go for it! It’s so easy and flexible. And the Secret Ingredient is what makes it.
That Secret Ingredient is one of my favorite Secret Ingredients.
