Easter Monday Menus

Today has dawned bright and sunshiny, dew on the grass, a last flush of roses beneath my family room window.

I'm thinking that some digging over of vegie garden beds wouldn't go astray. And perhaps if nurseries are open, we could find some vegie seedlings. Yes...I know all the wonderful things about growing from seed....but I'm not such a proficient gardner as to think that would work as wonderfully as it does for green thumbed people. My ever-faithful cumquat tree is flowering and bearing little green knobs that will become fruit.

My menu plan is all set for complete rearranging again. I keep track of things that get swapped around and when we scrap something altogether....if we've been out for dinner unexpectedly, that kind of thing. I use a green highlighter. The first two weeks of April are all green bar about two days. I had this week planned, but due to last week's shuffling I'm going to aim for some meals that never got made, since I have the ingredients and all.

Monday: Beef stroganoff (with mini meatballs)
Tuesday: Dinner at FIL's
Wednesday: ? I don't want to cook on my birthday.....we'll see
Thursday: Pork chops with apple & celery, potato, vegies
Friday: Roast chicken, roast potatoes, vegies
Saturday: Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie
Sunday: Dinner at a friend's Place

In between good, solid, healthy meals there is sure to be a diet of chocolate in between!

Happy Easter Tracy, No! You should not cook on your BDay ~ definitely not! (in my humble opinion :)

Give a few tomato seeds a try, it's easier than you think, saves a fortune and I'll help you through it...

Have a blessed day!

LOL Niki ~ it's Autumn here. I've just ripped out the tomato plants and have bought cool weather vegies like cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce. I'll pick up some more plants next week when the lady has them in.

It's so funny to think of it being autumn there when all the flowers are just starting to bloom here. Of course, I felt that way when you were heading into summer just as it was getting cold here.

Your birthday! Definitely don't cook. Make DH take you out! Then tell us all about it and we'll live vicariously through you.

LOL Frances. We'll talk tonight. He is in the process of organising my birthday present. I want my piano tuned. The brother of a friend apparently does tuning.

Oh I can't wait ~ a blissfully in tune piano. What could be sweeter!?
