Menu Plan Monday and ze gardening begins!

What a GORGEOUS weekend!  I got out into the garden and planted peas, beets, lettuce, parsley and carrots.  I haven’t tried carrots in years because our soil is so heavy (and then there was the potting soil experiment – YUCK!), but the soil was so good in one section of the bed where I was planting I decided to try it again with some fairly short carrots.


The garlic that we planted on the very last day of 2008 is coming up finally.  Studmuffin has been rather worried about it – it’s rather funny to me. And everyone is pretty much over their colds…and I did not get it!

Here’s the menu fer this week:

Mon – homemade pizza

Tues – Chicken of some kind

Wed – Spaghetti & Meatballs

Thurs – Breakfast for dinnenr

Fri – Chicken with spinach (I haven’t a recipe for that yet either)

Sat – Burgers

Sun – Shepherd’s Pie

Having a menu plan has been very good for us – I just have to remember what I need to take out of the freezer ahead of time…….



  1. I’ve been in the hospital since Friday and did not get to enjoy the lovely weekend weather. 😦 But I have vicariously enjoyed it through you. Keep posting about your garden, as I’m not sure I will get to plant one this year.

  2. Try this


    1 whole chicken
    1 can diced green chilies
    1 clove garlic
    1 med. onion
    2 tbsp. cooking oil
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen spinach
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 pt. sour cream
    8 oz. corn or tortilla chips
    2 c. grated cheese (your choice)

    Saute garlic, onions and chilies; add cumin – cook 1 minute. Add soup, then defrosted spinach. Add salt; simmer. Add chicken and sour cream. Heat thoroughly. Layer chips, chicken mixture and cheese (2 times) in a casserole dish and cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. This can also be cooked in the microwave on HIGH for approximately 15 minutes.
