Menu Plan Monday

We got through another House Party which was very fun (I will post a little later about it) and today I'm hosting a luncheon for some folks to get together and talk about sustainability.  That should be interesting.  We are having a fall themed menu of turkey, sweet potatoes, and salad - simple yet effective (and uses up veggies from the CSA box.)

Still in the process of eating down the freezer (I am hoping to get enough room to fit a deer once Engineer gets a chance to go a huntin') and you know what I have found?  Cheese. That's what I have found lurking in the frozen abyss that is my freezer. Lots and LOTS and LOTS of cheese. I need to cook something with cheese in it. It's the right thing to do.

The only problem, which is not really a problem as much as a consideration, is that we have started getting our boxes from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share and so I have to plan my menu around that and cheese doesn't always go with winter veggies.  Although I have a small person in my household that would strongly defend the premise that everything goes with cheese.

By the way, if you get a chance, look at what I have to say about the new Carmex lotions.  You might get a chance to try them out for yourself!

Based on the predictions of what will be in the box this week, here is my loosely planned menu:

Monday - Mac & Cheese and Greens
Tuesday - Spinach Quiche and Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Wednesday - Eggplant Parmesan with Spaghetti
Thursday - Big Salad
Friday - Date Night

  1. We love Carmex too! I bought a big "Sam's club" package last year, and now I have some in some form in my purse, bedroom, bathroom, living room, and just about every coat pocket I own!

    And hey, what about sauteed greens with cheese sauce? :)

  2. Eggplant Parmesan is the only way my kids will eat eggplant which is such a shame since I absolutely love it.
