Monday Menu

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?
