Menu Plan Monday

brought to you by I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Another semi-plan for the week. I'm only responsible for three meals this week.

  • Mexican Lasagna, Roasted corn and black bean salad
  • Cheesy Penne with Chicken & Broccoli (except that I'm using Mike's leftover grilled chicken from this weekend. It was spectacular AND it's not breaded!)
  • Potato Leek soup with Chicken Andouille sausage (I had a hankering for sausage, so I'm putting it the soup.)
  • Thursday is Las Vegas 51's baseball. We eat in the air-conditioned restaurant before heading out in hundred (plus) degree heat for the game.
  • Friday is a holiday for Mike, so he will cook.

Trying some new recipes from a new website, Meal Makeover Moms. They bill themselves as Healthy Meals with Kid Appeal. I can't seem to get the boy child to eat meat and even he thinks the lack of protein is making him tired. They also have a cookbook. I have a 30% off coupon. Maybe I'll go buy it.

I sort of have a plan, so here it is.

Mike made (a lot of) broccoli salad so we'll be eating it all week.

The Weather

Las Vegas just finished it's hottest May on record with 27 days over 90 degrees.

How is it then, that last night I went to pick Ana up from soccer camp at 8:30pm, had to sit outside for 30 minutes because I was early, and - Dare I say it? - I was a little cold!!

It was 85 degrees out and the wind was blowing. Either my thyroid medicine isn't working or I've become a desert dweller with all rights and privileges thereunto appertaining!

I think I'd freeze to death if I still lived in Oregon.
