Menu Plan Monday – January 4, 2010
I have a confession. I am not one of those moms who are happy the kiddos head back to school after a vacation. I love, love, LOVE them being home. I love the sleeping in if we want, making special meals, hanging out time. But, well, this morning I was a bit relieved to see everyone out the door. Sorry, kiddos! Why this time? Well, we have one sad little over-worked laptop and 4 other people (namely my pre-teen, my teen, my six year-old, and MY HUSBAND) in the house who want said computer while everyone is home during the holidays. Yeah, you know what that means – as the mommy it means that my computer and I have been far, far apart for the past little while. Well, except when I would threaten to not make dinner until I had my recipe from my computer (requiring wrenching the computer from the hands of the aforementioned family members, the little cuties…) Any-hoo, now that I have complete computer daytime domination (bwah-ha-ha!!!) let’s see if I can keep on keeping on with the blog now, shall we?
Um, yeah, and don’t worry, kids, I still miss you while you are at school learning math n’stuff….
Monday: Back to school/Girl Scout leader meeting
Pork and veggies (kind of a coconut milk curried-type of thing) over brown rice (presoaked) (made with pork meal starter from my freezer)

Juicy Turkey burgers (make second batch for the freezer), salad and steamed veggie mix

Thursday: Girl Scout meeting
Chicken, chick pea, winter squash and spinach curry over quinoa

This weekend: A Czech/Bohemian take of chicken and potato dumplings (this week I am all about the comfort food because it is COLD here) so that I can use this as my “movie” theme (hee-hee):
