Menu Plan Monday
May 18, 2009

It's a cool and rainy Victoria Day here in Calgary.  We did enjoy sun for the first part of the weekend, however.  Ben and I accomplished lots in the yard (and did even more planning and dreaming for the weekends to come).  It's been a great few days!

I have some sad news to share.  Last week my bread maker died.  (Boo hoo!)  I use the bread maker often and am quite upset.  I did have a couple weeks warning of the machine's impending demise, thank goodness.  I decided to learn bread-making the old fashioned way and have made a few (successful!) batches of milk and honey bread.  (I changed the recipe slightly and used 50% whole wheat flour.)  I've also discovered that my bread machine recipes are fairly easy to adapt. Maybe, just maybe, I'll learn to live without my handy machine.

Here's our menu plan for the upcoming week:

Monday:  No cooking!  (Supper with my parents)

Tuesday:  Meaty noodle casserole, fruit salad

Wednesday:  Encore performance

Thursday:  Soft tacos with beans, veggie fixings, salsa

Saturday:  Clean out the fridge

Sunday:  No cooking!  (Supper with Ben's parents)

I also plan to do some baking this week.  Here are the treats I hope to make:

I'm assuming that when you posted your menu the snow hadn't started flying yet!!
We're up in E-Town and the snow started late last night.
