Menu Plan Monday – December 7, 2009

by angelaskitchen on December 7, 2009

Sorry about the lack of blog time, but the little blogging break I took has left me feeling refreshed…  I think I needed more time to step back after everything was so crazy back in September/October, but didn’t do it when I should have (boy, does that catch up with you).  I have also got caught up on a couple of things (yay!), though there is always something keeping me jumping.  Gotta love it!

Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday.  With taking time off from blogging, I also haven’t been checking other blogs as much, and didn’t know she had changed her blog look.  It’s very spiffy!  The Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Lilac Kitchen.  She has chosen suet for the theme ingredient…  Um, huh…  Well, I do use suet for the bird seed ornament feeders the kids and I will be making this weekend, so there you go!

Hi, Cheryl! It’s the Sue Gregg one… Gotta love pre-soaking!

Added you to the menu list. Glad you at least know what suet is 🙂 Sounds a lovely menu!

Your weeks sound a lot like mine — seems busy every day. I don’t know how we manage to fit holiday activities into the schedule. 🙂
What Thai seasoning do you use for the patties? Sounds great.

Wow, finally getting back to everybody… sorry about that…

I just add a couple cloves garlic, thinly sliced green onions, fresh cilantro, a little chili paste, gf soy sauce – sometimes toasted sesame seed or finely minced lemon grass to the ground beef. You know, just Thai seasonings that may be laying around here until it seems good. Not really amounts, or a recipe, but I hope that helps some!

Just noticed the “snow” on your site. How fun. I love it!
