Last night Jesse and I got home from visiting Jeremy in California. All I can say right now is that I am SO glad to be home. I missed everything from my
little big family to my own bed and especially my kitchen. Now after a good night’s sleep and a calm morning I’m back to menu planning and spending half my days in the kitchen. 🙂
Wednesday, May 18:
Lunch — Loaded nachos (tortilla chips, shredded cheese, prepared taco meat, chopped onion, salsa, and sour cream).
Dinner — One of Jason’s favorite simple meals: Lemon Pepper Chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, and cinnamon apples.
Thursday, May 19:
Lunch — Tuna salad sandwiches with chips and ranch dip.
Dinner — Broccoli Beef Stir Fry with white rice and sauteed julienne carrots.
Friday, May 20:
Saturday, May 21:
Day 1 of my motorcycle rider’s safety course. I passed the DMV written test so I have my license and Jason taught me the basics, but I’ll be taking the course before I allow myself out on the road.
Lunch — Whatever the family can rustle up for themselves while I’m out all day.
Dinner — Sticky Chicken (didn’t make it last week before I left, so we’ll be having it this week, I’m craving some!) with mashed potatoes and corn.
Sunday, May 22:
Day 2 of my motorcycle class. Hopefully by the end of the day I’ll be prepared for whatever might come my way.
Breakfast — Even though I won’t be going to church with the rest of the family, I’ll make some of these Lemon Rolls on Saturday night so that we can heat them up on Sunday morning and have a filling breakfast before a long morning of uplifting sermons (for them) and biker class (for me).
Lunch — Same as Saturday.
Dinner — Steak and Pasta with Chimicurri Sauce (I’ll be omitting the asparagus because I’m not a fan, but perhaps roasted corn on the cob would go well as a side dish?).
See how much I missed cooking? I am trying three new meals during a short week. Usually I’m so busy doing other things that I limit myself to just one new recipe a week. I’m in the mood to play in my kitchen!
