Buuuurrrrrrr!   It has been so cold this weekend.  Today (8:30 am) it’s -27C (-17F) and feels like -40C/F!  The water pipes in the barn were frozen this morning, so Colin was out there at 6 so we could have water in the house.  Right now he’s over at the neighbour’s (and Dad’s) moving snow.  We had a bit of snow yesterday, but it’s so light that it blew and drifted in terribly.

I didn’t try the new chow mien recipe last week.  I realized I didn’t have most of the ingredients -oops.  I also didn’t make the ‘mystery’ roast.  We got invited out to supper -hurray, no dishes!  This week I don’t have a full week of suppers.  Our weekend plans are really up in the air, so I’ll play those by ear.  If they get settled I’ll come back and fill in the week.

Monday:

hamburger soup

Tuesday:

spaghetti

Wednesday:

steak souvlaki

Thursday:

leftover souvlaki

Friday/Saturday/Sunday:

Menu Plan Monday actually on a Monday-ha ha!

The Danish goulash was really good.  I used home made ‘onion soup mix’ with a bit of turmeric, boy did that give the goulash a nice rich colour.  I didn’t make the pork chops, No Frills had a sale on ribs, so we had those.  The French chicken dish was OK, but I don’t think I’ll make it again.

Monday:

leftover chicken

Tuesday:

tacos

Wednesday:

crock pot turkey, dressing, and roasted carrots

Thursday:

leftover turkey

Friday:

chicken chow mein

Saturday:

mystery roast -it might be venison??

Sunday:

Yesterday we had a great home school field trip into the city.  We toured around Parliament Hill.  The ‘centre block’ is getting closed for at least a decade for repairs/renovations.  Unfortunately we found out too late, and most of the furniture has already been removed.  It was a good trip and the building is unbelievable beautiful.  I don’t have any pictures uploaded yet, but I’ll share when I do.

Meanwhile, what’s to eat this week…

Tuesday:

smothered hamburgers

Wednesday:

Danish goulash

Thursday:

shake and bake pork chops

stove-top stuffing

German potato salad 

Friday:

leftover goulash

Saturday:

lasagna

Sunday:

French style chicken and potatoes

The cookie baking continues.  I’m not sure how many I’ve still got to make.  It’s kind of nice that most of Ella’s extra curricular stuff is done till the new year (we have archery tomorrow, but that’s it).  Some weeks I get tired of all the running.  Are you ready for Christmas?  I need to get my wrapping done.  I’m just going to give you suppers this week, lunches might depend on what’s in the oven and how much time I have to cook stuff.  So, what’s cooking this week?

Monday:

hot beef -yeah, I know I didn’t say I was making roast beef last week.  I just didn’t feel like ham, so I changed things up and made the most delicious roast beef on Sunday.  This is my favourite way right now.

Tuesday:

spaghetti

Wednesday:

meat pie -probably my Bavarian beef pie recipe

Thursday:

baked tenderloin

Friday:

leftover meat pie

Saturday:

leftover tenderloin

Sunday:

pork chops -maybe these ones

I love having the house all done up for Christmas!  Colin and I ran into Pembroke yesterday and picked up a couple of little strands of lights for the new garland in the living room.  They look like ‘vintage’ bulbs from when we were kids (but LED of course).  Colin really likes the new garland because it doesn’t hang down as far and he doesn’t have to duck every time he walks out of the room.

I really need to get started on my Christmas baking.  I would have started today, but it’s groceries tonight and I ran out of time.  Here’s a fun picture with my baking helper from a few years ago…

I made the chicken later in the week than scheduled, so we’re still finishing up chicken.

Monday:

leftovers

hot chicken sandwich

Tuesday:

sandwiches

magic chicken pie

Wednesday:

Autumn chowder (maybe with the last of the chicken?)

spaghetti and meatballs (from freezer)

Thursday:

pizza

smoked ham -new recipe for the crock pot

Friday:

ham sandwiches

leftover chicken pie

Saturday:

leftover ham

Sunday:

beefsteak pie

Hey look! Menu Plan Monday posted on Monday morning!  What do you know!

I didn’t get the Christmas pudding and cake made yesterday.  I’m trying to finish up my sewing so I can put my machine away for the season and have the kitchen table free.  So I’ll share a picture that was taken on Stir-Up Sunday a couple of years ago:

What’s up this week?  Not so sure.  Tomorrow we have book club at Chantal’s.  The kids are eating food mentioned in the book (Diary of a Young Girl).  At least that’s the plan.  I can guarantee you (as in I’d put money on it) that Ella won’t taste just about everything Chantal plans on serving.  I’d better bring something along.  We also hope to go have fun with our friends in Arnprior.  Our plans last week got cancelled because Ella needed some extra Grandma time since she’d been away.

Monday:

French toast

chicken and dumplings

Tuesday:

tacos

Wednesday:

leftover tacos

leftover chicken

Thursday:

pizza

Creole pork chops

Friday:    St. Andrew’s Day

leftover pizza

fish and chips, hopefully

Saturday:

honey garlic chicken wings

Sunday:   start of Advent

roasted garlic chicken

What do you know?  Menu plan Monday actually on a Monday.  Though to be honest it’s almost 2:30 and I just remembered.  You’ll also note that the fall header is gone.  That’s because

winter has returned to the Valley

Daisy’s less than impressed this year.

We had fog that froze on the trees and looked so beautiful Sunday morning.  We’ve got about 6″ now and it’s still coming down.

Grandma made it home safely yesterday.  Ella’s very happy, she misses Grandma a lot when she’s in Bowmanville.  Uncle Dennis got a deer.  But Grandma came home with a lot of bad news about Great-Grandma.  Without going into details, I’m not sure how all the family down there can’t see that she’s got Alzheimers.  It’s so very sad.  It’s so bad that I’m really worried she won’t remember/recognize Ella when we’re down at Christmas.  That will break Ella’s heart.

No real plans for the week.  Though I’d like to make up the play date we had to cancel last week due to pink eye (their’s not ours).  Besides that, not much else.

Oh, I know what I forgot to tell you.  WE’RE DONE THE CORN!!!!  Colin worked a 16 hour day on Thursday (into the dark) and finished up just before the snow started.  Hurray!

Monday:

leftover beef and barley soup -I skipped ahead in my plans and tried this new recipe.  It is SO GOOD.  You have to try!

Tuesday:

pizza

beef ribs -will decide recipe later

Wednesday:

French toast -regular and Ella safe

leftover ribs

Thursday:

leftover pizza

garlic paprika chicken

Friday:

grilled cheese

baked sweet and sour chicken -I didn’t make this last week since Ella was home, she doesn’t like Chinese food

Saturday:

leftover s&s chicken

double crunch honey garlic pork chops

Sunday:  Stir-Up Sunday

leftover garlic paprika chicken
