menu plan monday ~ february 24, 2013

We weathered the ice storm from last week. Not too bad as we were on the southern edge of the system. We got some ice but it melted away the next day.

All the kitties stayed indoors and enjoyed warm and cozy places to keep an eye on us. This is Zilli. She stays in all the time so the weather was of no concern to her.


This week, due to timing, we are having meatless Tuesday, instead of meatless Monday. Our middle daughter asked for penne and chicken, so it’s on the menu for tonight as she won’t be home tomorrow evening for supper. The chicken is in the crock pot and will soon be ready to pick. After the meat is separated, I will put the bones back into the crock pot, add water and let it simmer for 24 hours. Makes the BEST chicken broth. I put it into quart canning jars and store it in the fridge. Great for soups and for making rice.

    I’m stopping by from Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today for a blog visit.
    The midwest and New England have definitely gotten hit with the snowstorms this year.
    This gal is always looking for recipe ideas and inspiration.
    Thanks for participating in MPM!
