menu plan monday ~ october 22, 2012

Busy weekend. DH and the three girls saw Les Misérables, which took up most of Saturday. They had a wonderful time. My sister came on Saturday and helped put up Christmas trees. Yes, an early start, but we have to be done by the first weekend of December for our annual open house. And with 22 trees to put up, it means a very early start. I have seven or eight kinds of cookies in the freezer and the ingredients to make more. So things are moving along. Meanwhile, autumn flows by outside. The weather has been beautiful.

The menu takes into account the need for some easy meals, the warmer than usual weather we’ll have until Friday and then the cold snap we’re expecting. After a high of 82 expected for Wednesday, we’re supposed to have a high of 53 on Friday. Chicken and Dumpling Soup should hit the spot.

Chicken Quesadillas
Avocado Sour Cream

Homemade Tortilla Chips

Spicy Shredded Pork Sandwiches
Homemade Buns

Grilled Pork Steaks and Chicken Wings
Veggie Packets
Fruit Salad

Homemade Buns
Carrot and Celery Sticks

Chicken and Dumpling Soup
Rosemary Bread

Fridge Food

Crock Pot Turkey
Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Asparagus
Homemade Rolls
Caesar Salad
