Archive for the ‘Menu Plan Monday’ Category

Summer has definitely arrived in the Ottawa Valley.   The house did NOT cool off last night, so we woke to 24C.  At least is hasn’t gotten too humid in here yet -so long as you don’t move around much.  I think today might be a sewing day (under the ceiling fan).  I needed to bake cookies, so I woke early while the house was ‘cool’.

Likely going to be a busy week.  It’s our last Guide camp of the year.  We’re at the Pentecostal camp again this year.  I’m letting Ella stay home (well, Grandma’s) because she just doesn’t like camp and it’s too stressful when some of the other girls get too tired and get bitchy grumpy.  I’m having a hard time getting into this camp because the next weekend is our summer vacation and I want to get started on that instead.

Monday:

sandwiches

leftover Chinese (BTW the Pioneer Woman chow mein was yummy.  I added 1 tsp oyster sauce and used packaged coleslaw for all the veggies)

Tuesday:

sandwiches

tacos -happy Ella

Wednesday:

leftover tacos

BBQ chicken quarters

Thursday:

BBQ pizza

spaghetti and meatballs

Friday:

leftover pizza

We had a really nice weekend.  A cold front rolled in Friday evening (thank goodness!) and got rid of the oppressive humidity.   I always mean to get a lot of work done on these cool days, but I just feel like sitting and enjoying the coolness.

This week I need to get started planning our last Guide camp and to get the records all fixed up and ready to pass onto the new Guide leader.  I’ve taken a Guiding break for the last couple of weeks.  I won’t be sorry to be ‘just a mom’ for Pathfinders in September.

Hopefully, this coming week won’t be as wet as they are forecasting.  I have a mountain of laundry and it needs to hang outside.

Monday:

hamburgers

roast chicken

Tuesday:

honey garlic chicken stir fry

pork souvlaki

Wednesday:

?

hot chicken

Thursday:

baked chimichangas

Friday:

Sunday:

What a hot and humid day for grocery shopping.  Also, it seems all the seniors are shopping on Mondays, so we’ll have to pick another day in future.

Nothing much planned this week.  It’ll be the first week without Guides, won’t know what to do with our Wednesday evenings -ha ha.  I do have to get planning camp which we are actually doing in June.  And of course, the usual mountain of laundry and baking.

Monday:

A&W

Tuesday:

I was really busy yesterday and didn’t get around to making my menu.  This is hopefully the last week without planned lunches.  Cropping has gone really well and Colin is almost done!

Archery tonight.  Now that summer is here, the club has an outdoor range they use (and can use daily).  Hopefully this week someone else comes.  Ella doesn’t like being there by herself, she misses the socialization.

Monday:

honey garlic chicken wings

Tuesday:

leftover venison

Wednesday:

leftover wings

Thursday:

spaghetti and meatballs

Friday:

chicken croquettes (from freezer)

Saturday:

sesame chicken and chow mien (PW recipe)

We had a good weekend.  Sunday was the Ottawa Comic-Con.  We took Ella’s friend Sarah.  It was Sarah’s first time.  She’s dressed as Fiona from Adventure Time. She had a great time and got recognized a bunch.  She even had her picture take!  That makes for such a fun Comic-Con.

Comic-Con was so much fun that both the girls passed out on the drive home.  Made for a very peaceful drive -ha ha!

The cropping continues, hurray, though Colin would be happy for some gentle rain on the weekend.  Lunches will still be on an ‘as it comes’ basis, which usually means lots of sandwiches.

Monday:

garlic roast chicken

Tuesday:

hot chicken

Wednesday:

chicken a la king

Thursday:

supper in town because I have to meet someone before swimming

Friday:

hamburgers

Saturday:

leftover chicken a la king

Sunday:

crock pot venison roast

Turned another year older on Friday.  It’s hard to believe that I’m 47.  I don’t feel old.  I remember when Mom and Dad were 47, they seemed much older than I feel.  Colin says the same thing.

Ella and Grandma got me one of those new ‘Gotham Steel’ frying pans and a couple of really cute baking pans (brownie type size).  They also picked up Chinese in Renfrew.  

Ella, Grandma, and I saw the new Avengers movie today, so I didn’t roast the chicken after all.  BTW, don’t take sensitive people to see the movie.  It’s a very sad, surprising ending.  Tears all round.  Cropping starts today, so I won’t bother planning lunches since I won’t know if they will be in the kitchen or in the field until the day required.

Monday:

pizza

leftovers

Tuesday:

steak and mashed potatoes -hurray BBQ!!!!!

Wednesday:

hamburgers

Thursday:

pork souvlaki

Friday:

double crunch pork chops

Saturday:

beef ribs-don’t know what but found them in the freezer

Sunday:    Comic-Con Ottawa
