Monday’s Menu

Well, we’re starting all the kid’s activities in earnest this month, so it’s back to sandwich nights and slow cooker nights. Ah…fall is here, there’s no sticking my head in the sand.

Usually we have wonderful Indian Summers here and the month of October is often really nice, at least for the first weeks.

But not this year. We’ve had hail and thunderstorms along with buckets of rain in the last week. Tonight, the temperature is supposed to get down to 35 degrees- meaning there will be frost especially where there are pockets of cold.

So this afternoon my daughter helped me bring in the rest of the peppers, beans, and any tomatoes that had the faintest pink blush on them. I’ve put them in brown paper bags in the laundry room to see what will ripen. In past years I’ve gotten ripe tomatoes (usually the paste ones) into November. But that was when I brought them in two weeks later. We’ll see how far they can last this year.

Monday- Italian vegetable soup, artisan bread

Tuesday- Pork moo-shoo pancakes (made with tortillas)*, plum sauce, fried rice

Wednesday- Black bean & kielbasa soup (slow cooker)*, Quick Breadsticks, vegetable platter

Thursday- Turkey Italian Sausages, mashed potatoes, green beans, sliced tomatoes

Friday- Vegetable lasagna, green salad

Saturday- Turkey burgers on homemade buns, oven fries, carrots

Sunday- Pasta with sauteed vegetables

  1. Jami,

    I’m looking forward to seeing your recipe for the black bean I kielbasa soup. Sounds like something I’d like to try.
