Menu Planning Monday
Today was all about berries, currants, raspberries and strawberries. Oh how I am enjoying the strawberries this year, so fragrant and delicious! I’ve managed to get a few cups in the freezer, and a few jars of jam made but we’ve really just enjoyed having them for our desserts.
We are lucky to be having two barbeque’s this week it being Canada Day on Thursday and an old friend is coming back to Ottawa for a visit and will be with us for dinner on Saturday. FUN STUFF!
Here’s the plan!
Monday: Chicken a la King
Tuesday: Homemade pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and BACON
Wednesday: Planked steak with porcini mushrooms, broccoli salad, and baby potatoes
Thursday: Canada Day BBQ @ our neighbours place
Friday Fun Night Dinner: Hot dog squids
Saturday: BBQ with Friends (BBQ Turkey with slow cooker stuffing)
Sunday: Creamy pasta with peas
Do your kids watch Dora? I created a new explorer star. It’s called cooking star, she glides around the kitchen and does all the annoying parts that I don’t like doing, like grating garlic, or de-fatting chicken (de-fatting? Look! I also created a new word!)
I also have a couple of goals this week that I’ve been wanting to get around to: finish the crown molding in the family room, if possible paint two of the walls in here. Also I want to make a clothes pin bag, I keep my pins outside right now but I hate that they get all gross from the rain, and well…I hate not knowing if creepy crawlies have made a home in the bin. SHUDDER!!!!
Other than that I’ve got a bit of extra cleanup to do in preparation for our guests on Saturday. I’m hoping that I can sneak in an extra visit to Cake’s day camp to give me a bit of extra time too but we’ll see.
Happy cooking to all and to all a good night!!!
