Menu Plan Monday

brought to you by Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

This week we're eating whatever is available in the house. There's plenty of food so it shouldn't be a problem.

So far;
  • Baked oatmeal (I'm trying something new.)
  • leftover chicken (Mike smoked it on the charcoal grill. I'll turn it into something.)
  • leftover tri-tip (Same thing. Mike grilled this weekend.)
  • ground turkey in one form or another (It's in the freezer.)
  • Pizza Friday (I don't have one, but it's pay day!)

I'll add fresh produce and we'll probably need milk at some point.

The menus are about to change. It will be over 100 degrees this week which means the oven will not be in use again until sometime around late September or early October.

Second Time

I hit it red again. (Click "red" for the original post.)

I think the emergency vehicles rolling code put the signals out of sequence.
There was a structure fire a few blocks away and fire trucks en route.

Why My Work Isn't Getting Done

Because today, I discovered these two web sites.

Be forewarned. You will waste countless hours.

Menu Plan Monday

brought to you by Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Dinner this week will be determined largely by how much walking I can do at grocery stores. The MRI on my knee is Monday, May 4th at 0730.

So far, the plan is:

  • Tater Tot Casserole*, corn
  • Bourbon Chicken, broccoli, brown rice
  • chili (I don't use a recipe. I'll just make it up.), cornbread
  • fish (whatever I can find), a vegetable, a side dish**
  • pizza Friday

I'm keeping it simple and using mostly what I have on hand.

*Am I the only person on the planet who does not cook with Cream of Mushroom, Chicken, Celery or any other food Soup? Mike hates it and I refuse to cook with it!

**Who says meal planning is hard?

Chun Kuk Do Tournament

Today was the 5th Annual Region 2 Tournament in Chun Kuk Do (our karate style) and United Fighting Arts Federation (UFAF, our organization). Our students did very well in the competition.

From left to right: Savannah, Tirza, Angelo, Devin and Maria

Ana and Kobie also competed and did well.

We raised around $900 which will be donated to charity. It's a really fun event with lots of families involved. It's great practice for our International tournament in July.

Great job everyone.
