menu plan monday ~ october 24, 2011

It’s high noon in the process of our son and his family moving from North Carolina to our area. Our son and daughter-in-law are packing the moving truck as we speak and should be rolling in tomorrow evening or Wednesday morning. DH flew to NC Saturday evening and drove the girls back yesterday. A fourteen hour trip! This morning, all were up bright and early. The twins helped me make rolls and buns and we even made a teddy roll. Just like Twin2’s teddy. Right down to the flowers (painted on with edible food markers). As soon as he came out of the oven and had cooled enough, they gobbled him right up.

Planning the menu has been a little challenging. I’m trying to work around the move, taking into consideration everyone’s food likes and dislikes, and the extra company in the house. Meals that can wait are good, as I am not sure just how the timing is going to work out. Following is what I’ve come up with.

Homemade Pizza

Lunch ~
Tomato Soup
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Celery / Carrot Sticks
Red Grapes

Supper ~
Baked Penne with Chicken
Steamed Carrots
Green Salad

Lunch ~
Hamburgers on Homemade Buns
Veggies and Ranch Dip
Honeydew Melon

If everyone is at the house, unloading the truck, I’ll send a crock pot of beef stew over for an easy, eat-when-you’re-hungry lunch.

Supper ~
Vegetarian Lasagna
Garlic Bread
Steamed Sugar Snap Peas
Green Salad

Tortilla Chips
Green Salad

Ham or Turkey Sandwiches

Fridge Food

Baked Chicken
Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Green Beans
Steamed Carrots
Green Salad

The twins went outside to play. While outside, they picked up acorns. I told Twin2 she could plant them at the farm and grow oak trees. She said, “No! ACORN trees!” Well, of course. What was I thinking?
