Meal Plans

Another very quick post this week. its just been so busy lately. We spent a lot of time outside yesterday and today - playing and working. I was able to get the middle-front flower bed cleaned out and the old veggie garden, too. This week, I'll be working on getting the other left-front and northern side flower beds cleaned out in the evenings. Kevin tilled up part of the new garden - just enough for the peas and spinach (interplanted) for now. He'll work on the rest in the weeks to come. Anyway, here's what I'm thinking for meals this week, as you can see, I am still focusing on using things from the pantry and freezer:

Sunday ~ We are going to see The Lion King Broadway production at the Wharton Center in East Lansing. My guess is that we'll stop to eat after the show.
Meatless Monday ~ black bean sweet potato burritos (to use up my open jar of beans and some frozen sweet potatoes), milkshakes for dessert (to use up some ice cream)
Tuesday ~ baked chicken breasts (from the freezer), golden carrot bake (to use up some fresh carrots - they were on sale $0.99 for 3 pounds a week ago, so I now have quite a few to use up)
Wednesday ~ chicken tortilla soup from the freezer
Thursday ~ burgers from the freezer (no buns), roasted red potatoes, green beans from the freezer
Friday ~ leek, spinach, and broccoli quiche with potato crust, canned peaches
Saturday ~ Our plans are TBD at the moment, but I think we will probably go visit Kevin's sister, Julie, and her family. Whether we'll eat with them, go out, or eat at home is yet to be determined. If we eat at home, it will be leftover quiche.

I'm a little behind on my blogging. I'll be working on some posts from last week later on tonight probably. So stay tuned...

Sounds like you got some good yardwork done. Justin got our lettuce and spinach planted on Sat. I'm already excited for it to start growing! :)

The potato crust for the quiche sounds interesting. I hope it turns out well.

Hope you had fun at The Lion King. I'm jealous :p
