I’m just a little bit excited. We leave for New Orleans this Friday and I can’t wait! Oysters, crawfish, beignets, po’ boys… Oh, yum. But we do have a few days to consider meals at home. Let’s see what I can come up with.
- baked lemon pepper chicken breasts
- baked potatoes
Our new minister is coming over for a get-acquainted visit at 7 p.m. so I need a meal which is light on the cleanup and won’t leave the house smelling too strongly of dinner. In fact, I may make some cookie dough earlier in the day and bake a batch just before he arrives so I can offer him some as well as make the house smell yummy.
This will be a “clean out the fridge” meal.
- vegetable soup (made with any fresh veggies in the fridge as well as any other suitable leftovers)
I know I’ll be busy packing and cleaning and won’t want to mess up the kitchen. My plan is to have made enough soup Wednesday to have leftovers today.
- leftover soup
- grilled cheese sandwiches (to use up last of the bread)
And then we are off to New Orleans! We will be gone the next two Mondays but be sure to check back anyway. I have some fun Menu Monday posts ready to share. You won’t want to miss them!
