Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! I’m pretty happy to be starting a new week and I have high hopes that it will be a great improvement over the past couple of weeks. At least I have a really fun event to look forward to on Friday. So let’s take a look at what’s on my menu for the upcoming week:
I have a meeting at 5:15 so I’ll want something that can be ready when I get home. Slow cooker to the rescue!
- Crockpot Chicken Creole (I’ll take pictures and share in a blog post soon.)
- steamed rice
We have a food and music event this evening.
I have choir at 7 p.m. I like to cook something with minimal cleanup on these nights, as well as something I can easily make extra of to take to my parents.
- garlic bread
Believe it or not, we don’t have anything planned this evening. Sounds like a good night for a special meal.
- Skillet Creamy French Mustard Chicken
- mashed potatoes
- glazed carrots
- crusty, homemade artisan bread
We are going to a Steely Dan concert (yay!!) and will spend the night afterwards since the show gets out pretty late. We’ll eat dinner somewhere before the show.
We will be attending a dinner for the volunteer fire department David serves on. The hosts are providing hamburgers and hot dogs. Someone else is bringing dessert. I’ll probably make potato salad and/or baked beans.
The usual – Mexican food after church. Our “Music in the Park” events are over for the season so we can eat dinner at home at a normal hour. If we have leftovers from lunch we’ll eat those. Otherwise I’ll do something simple like sandwiches or quesadillas.
