I’m a little late with my menu plan today. We had a hectic weekend. Steady Eddie and I sponsor our church’s Bible quiz team, so we took about ten children to a competition 2 1/2 hours away from home on Saturday. On Friday, a very beloved member of our congregation had died after having a heart attack the previous week, so Sunday was full of funeral-related activities and the emotional after-effects. This morning found me rather out-of-sorts, so I’m just now trying to get things in order for the week. You’ll forgive me, won’t you?
This week’s menu is rather short and simple since Thursday is Thanksgiving. Major food-related holidays always cause me to be a little disconcerted in my planning. I always do fine up until the big day, but it’s afterwards that I’m always unsure about. For example, Steady Eddie and I have joined the hordes on the Friday after Thanksgiving and gone shopping for the past few years, so I am planning nothing for Friday. Saturday is up in the air for me as well because–well, it just is. I don’t know why. Anyway, enough for that blathering. Here’s my short menu for the week:
Monday–Curried Chicken Chowder (recipe later), crackers, tea, and fruit
Tuesday–leftover Curried Chicken Chowder, etc.
Thursday–feast with the family! my contributions: Spanish green beans , crock pot macaroni and cheese, sweet potato pudding, and carrot cake
Friday–every man for himself
