After a scorcher of a weekend (90 degrees! in May!), some late-night partying–keeping the kids up far past their bedtime, with mixed results–and our first trip of the year to the farmer’s market, it’s a cool and quiet Monday. In between games of Hi-Ho! Cherry O with Little Four, I’m going to finish sorting and reorganizing my recipe file and clear the piles of paper off my desk. Lofty goals! As usual, we have plenty of things in the freezer and pantry, so my grocery list is mercifully short. More time to dream up something yummy for Memorial Day weekend! I’m thinking brunch…
Monday: Red lentil dal and rice, roasted patty pan squash (I’m out of chickpeas, but maybe we’ll add something else)
Tuesday: Potato salad & sausages, green salad
Wednesday: Chicken cutlets with a pan sauce (maybe like this one, since we have plenty of lemons), Ricotta Gnocchi (I’m on a quest to make good gnocchi), asparagus
Thursday: Chili and cornbread
Friday: Who knows? We’ll see how the week goes…we can always have pizza!
Do you have Memorial Day plans?
I lived in Elgin till about 5 weeks ago, so your home is my old home! Enjoy your adventure! That, and your blueberry muffins are making me hungry. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! (I can’t wait until there are fresh blueberries at the farmer’s market–those really are perfect muffins!)
