Almost forgot it was Monday.  I’m going to have to make some changes to my menu plan this week since the butcher didn’t make enough hams so we had roast beef for Easter supper.

Really needs to stop raining.  There was lots of flooding in Pembroke and the river here is starting to get high too.  Colin says it’s about where it used to be in the ‘good old days’.  Considering he wants to start cropping it really needs to stop soon.

Monday:

CHIP PIT is OPEN!!!!!!

hot beef

Tuesday:

Caesar salad

meatloaf & mashed potatoes

Wednesday:

pizza

shepherd’s pie (with leftover roast)

Thursday:

Friday:

Saturday:

Man, I am having such a hard time remembering to Craft On on Tuesdays.  I’m going to have to put a reminder on my phone.  Oh well, at least this week I have something to share.

Making good progress on Belinda’s new sweater.  The pattern is working out much better with the thicker yarn.  The yarn isn’t really this orange, it’s got more of a rust tone (it’s called paprika).

Busy week.  My friend Maureen is coming on Wednesday for Ella’s photo shoot.  I need to get the house tidied up because she might want some inside shoots too.  I also need to get our Lenten garden set up, I’m so far behind this year.  I also need to snag the truck one of these days to run out to the butcher shop for a smoked ham.  Good news, my elbow is feeling so much better.  Still a bit sore, but I can knit again and I’m not afraid to pick up anything (within reason).  Sure wish I knew what I did -so I can not do it again!

Monday:

Busy last week getting everything back to normal after being in Toronto/Scarborough.  Now we have to go back again this weekend.  We need to hit Auntie B’s office to deliver Ella’s Girl Guide cookies.  Wasn’t planning on a trip down so quickly.  Oh well, maybe we’ll get a chance to hit up some of the fabric stores downtown to search for linen for my new medieval garb.

Today is the last day of skating, so our weeks will be a lot less busy.  Swimming started last week.  Ella loves swimming, she’s in swim kids 5.  Not bad for just starting lessons last year.

Monday:

grilled cheese

spaghetti

Tuesday:

pizza

roast pork

Wednesday:

pizza

beef noodle

Thursday:

??

stew

MPM-Winter

Looks like a miserable day in Renfrew County -well not for the school kids.  Supposed to be freezing rain all day so buses are cancelled.  Skating will likely be cancelled too (by me or the club), especially since I do the driving on Monday and I hate driving in any kind of bad weather.

Bit of a quiet week, Ella’s done swimming till after March break and Guides is cancelled because my other leader is away. If skating is cancelled today too, then we’ve only got one outing this week.  Maybe I should set up a play date with her friends in Arnprior.  I wish my friend Teresa lived a little closer to Arnprior, then I could drop Ella off and head over to Teresa’s.  I miss seeing her every week since she moved from Douglas.  But she’s in such a much better place I have to be happy.

Well, what’s cooking this week?  Oh yeah, to be honest I chickened out of making the cauliflower chicken chili last week.  I didn’t think any one would even try it and I didn’t feel like making 2 meals.  Maybe next time.

Monday:

pizza

leftover chicken

Tuesday:

French onion tomato soup

honey mustard chicken  -I used honey mustard instead of the Dijon because that’s what was in the fridge

Wednesday:

pizza

beef stew

Thursday:  Colin’s Birthday

mac & cheese

tenderloin and French fries

Friday:

leftover stew

Salisbury steak (new from More Don’t Panic Dinner is in the Freezer)

Saturday:

chicken Paprikash

Sunday:

breaded pork chops
