Meekly Weal Plan
We had Family Home Evening earlier. Jack requested we talk about Daniel in the lion's den. Van requested we sing "Follow The Prophet" and while we sang, he marched around the house "following the prophet". After FHE was vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. And then we engaged Jack in a rousing game of "Spell This". "Spell This" is when we spout off words for Jack to spell. People, I think I have an exceptional speller on my hands, but I can't tell because Jack is my first child. I mean, he can spell words like highchair, kitchen, journey and strawberry without hesitation. Is that really good for a 7 year old? I dunno.
This week's menu is as follows. I am cooking from my cookbook quite a bit. It's all apart of the editing process. Here, to convince you to buy my book when it comes out, I will highlight the ones in it.
MONDAY: Spaghetti with marinara sauce and toasted garlic bread.
TUESDAY: Sweet soy chicken and rice and steamed broccoli. This is for the children and Ethan. Me? I will be out with my mom and sisters at dinner and the KELLY CLARKSON concert! Oh yes, Kelly Clarkson.
WEDNESDAY: Cornbread and beef bake with potatoes and green chiles. One pan meal.
THURSDAY: Penne with arugula pesto and white beans. We call this Hulk pasta. People, arugula pesto is so much better than basil pesto. And MUCH cheaper. Lemme know if you want the recipe.
FRIDAY: Baked artichokes with lemon garlic mayo and bulgur pilaf.
SATURDAY: My daddy's birthday party. BYOM and that will be Ethan's department.
SUNDAY: Roasted pork tenderloin with pomegranate mustard sauce, roasted potatoes, steamed green beans and molten chocolate cakes.
