Microwave Monday

Menu Monday. It's what all the cool blogging homemakers celebrate.
But not us, we're having Microwave Monday, because today Katie shared an important discovery about our microwave:
"Hey Mom. Have you ever noticed that when you look up in the top of our microwave, there's a shape like Oklahoma?"

Hmmm, so there is!

My *plan* for our weekly menu is:

Monday: Chicken with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and some vegetable from the freezer.
Tuesday: Chili and cornbread (since the weather will be cold and rainy.)
Wednesday: Chicken and dumplings (still cold and rainy.)
Thursday: Turkey cutlets with apple cider and apricot glaze, noodles, and sweet potatoes.
Friday: Some easy pasta dish with a salad.
Saturday: Salmon (which I'm going to try to have once a week, hoping that its DHA makes my brain smarter) with big baked potatoes, steamed veggies, and a salad, for the hungry soccer players to eat while they wait for their dinner to be ready.
Sunday: Shepherd's pie, wondrous carrots, broccoli slaw, and homemade bread.


  1. I totally understand seeing Oklahoma in your microwave. But who in the world comes up with menu's a week in advance? I've definitely missed a planning gene somewhere...Let me find that chapter in "Sink Reflections" and do some in depth studying. On a serious note, your weekly menu sounds delicious. Can I steal it?

  2. Laura, you certainly may steal it. I recommend bailing out to go grocery shopping so someone else cooks it while you're gone!
    After you look through Sink Reflections, go ahead to and get a free sample of her menu mailer. I use it, but I also radically mofify it.
