menu plan monday ~ march 9, 2015

Spring has finally decided to join the party. I know there may be a little snow hiding in the woods on north facing hills. But it won’t last much longer. We’re getting crocus reports from nearby friends and family. Eldest Daughter sent this picture yesterday.

Eliza's crocus

Ours are probably not out yet because today is cloudy and rainy. Crocus prefer a sunny day. Don’t we all? The maple buds are swelling and the birds are beginning tentative spring songs. I am one happy girl! January and February are the hardest months of the year for me.

Middle Daughter is home on spring break and we may tackle cleaning out some of the craft room drawers and cupboards. Other than that, no big plans. 🙂

Here’s the menu for the week.


Chicken and Dumpling Soup

Braised Short Ribs
Sautéed mushrooms
Garden Salad
Cheddar Bay Biscuits Scroll down the post for the recipe.

Cheesy Baked Shells and Broccoli
Garden Salad

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
I’ll use Gouda cheese instead of Velveeta!

Fridge Food

Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin
Crash Hot Potatoes
Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Green Salad

You’ll find more menu and recipe ideas at Menu Plan Monday.

Update: When DH came home, he found this in the back yard.


Spring has come to the garden!
