Every year, about this time, I find these on the kitchen table.

While the grands were here this weekend, they made good use of the basil seeds. Rose Red had made a planter from an egg carton and craft supplies.

It’s a joy to have the grands near enough to see them often. They will be back in a week or two with their parents to help take down the last of the Christmas decorations. It’s always a hurry to get Christmas up and not so much of a hurry to take it down. 🙂

I’ve had the menu made since Monday, but am finally finishing this post on Wednesday. Sometimes, that’s the way it goes. I’ve been having fun working on soldered ornaments instead. But, here’s what we’re planning to have this week.

Chicken Parmesan Bake
Steamed Veggies
Harvest Grain Bread

It was the first time I’ve made the Parmesan Chicken Bake recipe and it was take-it-or-leave-it for me, but everyone else liked it. The leftovers would be great in soup, but, for now, they’re going to stay leftovers. If there are any left…may all be gone by now.

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Homemade Buns
Oven Fried Potato Wedges

Alton Brown’s Pot Roast
Roasted Red Potatoes and Carrots
Green Salad

Boneless Turkey in the Crock Pot
Steamed Brussels Sprouts

Fridge Food

Rosemary Ranch Chicken
Fettuccine Florentine
Green Salad
Harvest Grain Bread
