Menu Plan Monday

I usually write my Menu Plan (and therefore, the blog post) on Sunday evening.  This weekend was so incredibly fun I am just now settling down long enough to figure out what we will be eating this week.

We went to Blandford’s Maple Syrup Festival Saturday morning, and after pancakes and seriously the best sausage I have had we went stomping around the Nature Center looking at all of the tapped trees.  It was great just to be outside. 

From there we went to a very fun birthday party in the afternoon.  Yesterday was Palm Sunday and the kids got to follow the Priest around waving palm leaves during the processional.  They loved it.  They also found that palm leaves make excellent swords if held properly.  That afternoon Mr. Binder hooked the ‘bugger’ bike trailer up and took the kids for a ride.  A.P. had to bring a treat to school today, so we made rice crispy treats with green food coloring, then cut them into the shapes of shamrocks using a cooking cutter.  I think I showed incredible restraint, considering I am somewhat obsessive about snack themes.

Allright onto the Menu.

Tonight, we had corned beef sandwiches, pieces of Irish cheese, coleslaw, and Guinness.  Well, milk for the kids.


This looked like a great recipe for Lasagne from Nic in the Kitchen so I’ll give that a go tomorrow.


Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff seems easy and tasty from Life in the Button Factory (click on “Scott’s Favorite Chicken”).


I am not sure how I stumbled upon this blog.  It is called “Cooking for Engineers”.  I thought it meant cooking for someone (else) who happens to be an engineer – as if they all have similar tastes? No, it is cooking for people who are engineers.  The charts and graphs make me giggle.  I will be trying the Shephard’s Pie recipe.

That’s it! I’m gone Friday and we’ll be in and out the rest of the weekend.   For more Menu Plan Monday, head over to Laura’s blog.
