Apparently one snow storm just wasn’t enough last week and another one is coming our way! I spent part of yesterday trying to convince my family to move south but to no avail. Maybe if I squint I can pretend all this white stuff is sand and that the ocean is out there somewhere along with warmer weather! I did buy all the stuff to have s’mores for dessert one day this week since we are supposedly getting s’more snow! Last week’s dessert from our President’s day menu was a big hit but the white bean soup was compared to prison food. Frankly, I have no experience with prison food but imagine it is better than that soup! It needed a bit more flavor for us. The apple bread pudding, however, won the popular vote and will be remain on the menu. I’m still sticking to my plan of trying to add-on one meatless meal each week. Here’s what we’ll be eating this last week of February.
Fried Roundsteak, potatoes, and honey roasted parsnips , s’mores for dessert
I bought parsnips for the soup last week and need to use the rest up before they go bad. I’d never even tasted a parsnip prior to making that soup! While I didn’t like the soup, I did like the taste of the parsnips before I put them in the soup. The honey roasted parsnips are listed as a main dish but I”m going to cut the recipe in half and serve it as a side.
(I bought a couple frozen pizzas just in case it doesn’t get a good reception)
BLT’s and french fries
Gluten-Free Tamale Pie, salad
I’m hoping the tamale pie is well-received as it seems like it would be a great freezer meal option. I”m trying to get a few meals in the freezer again in preparation for the busier Spring and Summer nights that I hope are right around the corner. After all, I did send my youngest son to school with money for spring picture day which happens today (I’d like to research how to donate a calendar to the picture people!) and am going to hurry and turn my older son’s soccer sign-up form into the offices before the second blizzard hits.
What’s on your menu this week? Are you preparing for yet another snowstorm or are you lucky enough to be where the weather is sunny and warm?
