I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! We enjoyed the time with lots of family – and the break from the computer!
Although…Brian wrapped up his computer for me to show that my present would soon be a “new” (i.e. used) computer because the one I’m typing on has been dying a slow death for a few months. We have an awesome computer guy that pretty much works miracles on computers for the most amazing prices, but this one is just too old. So it’s not like I didn’t see a computer. *smile*
Did you find it hard to make a menu for this week? It usually takes me about 10 minutes, but it was like pulling teeth today, We need to eat from the pantry this week (after going over our food budget- ugh), and nothing looked good to me. It took 30 minutes looking through recipes and checking our freezer and cupboards for ingredients.
I almost threw in the towel. But then I thought about what it would be like to eat pasta all week, and I pushed on through!
Monday- Greek style tortellini, artisan bread, Greek green salad
Tuesday- Chicken-spinach crepes, sauteed or roasted broccoli & cauliflower, cranberry-feta green salad, bruschetta with tomato topping
Thursday- Last family Christmas celebration (not sure what I’m bringing yet)
Friday- Shrimp & vegetable curry (this recipe using shrimp instead of poultry), rice, chopped salad
Saturday- Homemade pizza
