The care-free days of spring break are over so back to the daily routine! I spent my spring break catching up on work, puttering in the garden, and helping my parents clean and prep their new house. They closed last Monday and they got a good deal, but the mid-century modern home hasn’t been updated since it was built! (I wonder if it’s even been cleaned since the 50′s!) They’re putting in new carpet, painting and having a bevy of small handyman type things done, but the first order of business was scrubbing floors, interior brick walls, bathrooms and kitchens. Our best find was a huge strawberry patch just sending up leaves in the backyard!
Now on to the real business of this post — the menu!
Saturday: The boys have a skating party to go to this afternoon, which will likely involve lots of pizza and cake. I’m going to keep dinner easy and serve biscuits and gravy with roasted carrots.
Sunday: The usual day of cards at the parent’s house, which always involves a huge spread of snacks and hors d’oeuvres type stuff. We’ll stick with Sunday tradition of duck egg sandwiches and “bring” potatoes (baked potato slices).
Monday: Scout night! Minestone soup and garlic rolls. I need to think about switching to the summer Monday staple of stirfry soon.
Tuesday: Just a regular day at home, so I’ll spend a bit more time on dinner and throw together an enchilada green chile casserole with roasted cabbage on the side.
Wednesday: Cub scout night, which means pasta! Probably plain ol’ spaghetti and roasted veg.
Thursday: Another boring day at home, but I’ll be busy getting things prepped for Monkey’s birthday party on Saturday. Going to keep it easy with a ham and cheese puff pancake with coleslaw on the side.
Friday: Pizza night! Homemade pizza and zucchini tots, per usual.
