Spring Break... and a menu
We are officially on Spring Break. And it's a very-much-needed break. Last weekend, a friend of mine died. Unexpectedly, and it was terrible. The funeral was this week, and I just couldn't bring myself to post anything...but this week, I am trying to get back to 'normal'... so here we go.
Sunday~ ds#2 and girlfriend have been here this weekend and will be leaving today. Before they go, we will grill beef tenderloin, have baked potatoes, and tossed salad. Monday~ Temps are supposed to drop, so it'll be chillier than we'd like for spring break, but that's okay. Taco Night is the plan. Tuesday~Bourbon chicken(which I have made before and gotten rave reviews, and which actually has no bourbon), rice, and broccoli. Wednesday~ Marinated flank steak(last time I made this, I actually cut the steak in half and left it frozen for a later use. It's perfect for just the 3 of us who are usually here), baked potatoes, tossed salad, bread with Italian dipping sauce. Thursday~ Spaghetti & meatballs. Yea for old standbys. Friday~ both hubby & I have lunch appointments, so it'll probably be something in the crockpot, like soup. Most likely, soup & sandwiches for dinner. Saturday~ TBA. I'll be cooking in prep for the family's Easter dinner. Sunday~ EASTER!
