Monday Menus: Week beginning 7 June

This past week has left me wondering. It's been a whole week since I last posted and I have truly had nothing much to say in that week. Why? Well....I spent the first half of last week reading 'Her Mother's Hope' by Francine Rivers, in time for Book Club on Friday night. I spent the remainder of the week studying...because I'd not done any for the previous few days! After all that self-inflicted pressure, I decided to spend yesterday in front of the fire place. With a good Erynn Mangum. "Cool Beans" is full of sassy quips and vintage Erynn humour.

My greatest disappointment for the weekend? 'Nigella Feast' has finished. :( I hope the ABC decides to air another series of hers...if there is one. Otherwise I'll just have to save my pennies and buy the DVD's. And the matching books. And then find time to watch. Hmmmmm.

This coming weekend is the long Queen's Birthday weekend, here in Victoria. There is nothing more delicious than a day off from the routine of school lunches and early rising in the middle of long, long term. Actually, we're only a couple of weeks off the end of term....but it'll still be nice to have a day off. I am thinking some reading and baking might be the order of that day.

On our table this week:
Monday: Apricot chicken, vegies
Tuesday: A delve into the freezer
Wednesday: Roast pork, vegies
Thursday: Nachos
Friday: not sure yet. It will come to me
Saturday: Dinner at a friend's place
Sunday: Gnocchi

Seeing as how I'm in a bit of a blogging slump, perhaps you'd like to tell me what you enjoy reading? I might just be inspired again!

Right now I'm reading a book about food in the American South and several on quilting. I do enjoy reading food writing a lot--it gets me inspired me to cook.

I know you're mourning the loss of Nigella, and I want you to know I'm here for you in your time of grief. Condolences!


p.s. I'm not feeling too bloggy either right now.

Frances, your sense of humour alone brightens the day. Particularly an otherwise dull, rainy, haily and Nigella free day like today!

Perhaps blogging inspiration will come to both of us soon?!
