menu plan ~ January 27, 2014

I suppose I should title this post “back in the saddle again.” Where’s Gene Autry when you need him?

I haven’t been keeping up with my menu planning. The holiday season was hard this year. I didn’t feel well and the weather was not cooperative for some of our planned events. My side of the family had to deal with two cancellations due to weather. We finally had our party mid-January.

But I’m back to work on the menu and meal planning. It is so much easier to feed a family when you know what’s on the menu. No last minute scrambling to find something to eat.

Here’s what we’re eating this week.

Chicken Taco Chili
Celery Sticks

Broccoli and Bacon Quiche
Garden Salad

We had this for supper and it was very good. I, of course, changed the recipe a little (added mushrooms, used Canadian bacon). I’ll post pictures and how I did it tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I’m staying in during this cold, cold weather and dreaming of spring. Can’t wait until this is showing up in the yard…

spring is sprung

    I am up for some of that quiche right now. I am heating up some chicken patties in the oven and the smoke detector went off. It must be the cheese that dropped off that frozen pizza last week…I long for what you guys are eating.

    So glad you are “back in the saddle” and as a result, I am back in the
    kitchen. No room for cookbooks in my luggage for this snowbird flying to AZ for the winter, I especially enjoy your website. Thank you Rhonda!!

    I am glad you are feeling better and hopefully recovered from the Christmas season events. I will be looking forward to your joy when your flower garden starts to make an appearance. Until then, continue to be refreshed.

    Thanks, all, for your comments. The quiche really was good. I had the leftover for breakfast this AM. It held up great in the fridge and was just as good today as it was fresh from the oven. I’ll post the recipe today.

    The Asian Flank Steak Skewers we had last night were delicious! DH cooked supper and, instead of grilling them on skewers, he cooked them on the stove top. They could also be done under the broiler. The marinade is great. It would make a great sauce for Asian rice or noodles.
