The weather here in Columbus has been alternating between beautiful and ghastly. Currently we are at ghastly with non-stop rain. Of course, I am scheduled to run 7 miles tonight and two boys are starting with baseball. Ugh! I fear for April showers.
This week is crazy as we start into our Lenten season with Ash Wednesday. Thankfully, things will be a little easier now that the boys are eating more fish! Rowan was even saying that he wanted to try some other types of fish, so I may have to "accommodate" him. He will certainly have to be reminded of this conversation when dinner time comes around.
This is the time of year where I really try to clean out my freezer and pantry. I hate to call it a "pantry challenge" because I fear that I am just not up to the task. I know that I will have to go to the grocery store and buy additional food to supplement what I find in the freezer. There are just too many appetites to fulfil!
Monday: Pasta with Herbed Butter, broccoli
Very much like pasta with a pesto sauce. I will add a pound of Italian sausage to appease the boys.
Tuesday: Smorgasbord, carrots
We have a lot of left-overs to finish up. Everyone's favorite (not)!
Wednesday: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, tomato soup
I have brie cheese for the adults and good old American and provolone for the boys. I should be able to pull off this meal with the crazy night we have ahead of us.
Thursday: Catfish with Stewed Tomatoes, yellow rice, asparagus
Rowan is getting his wish and we are going to try catfish. Hmmmm, we'll see!
Friday: Fish Fry at Church
Lent is known for the fish frys!
Saturday: Out for a charity dinner
This is a corned beef dinner for a school charity event. We even get to work the bar!
Sunday: Smorgasbord, salad
Believe it or not, we will still have leftovers that need to be finished off. Need to get the fridge cleaned out before I can tackle the freezer.
Have a great week! Enjoy!
I am participating in Menu Plan Monday over at http://www.orgjunkie.com/!
Stay tuned! I hope to have some more reviews and a giveaway later this week!
