Menu Plan - Week 12

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We had a self-imposed deadline for the COTA campaign of Easter.
That's just around the corner - like two weeks around the corner.

When this campaign started six weeks ago, we had a big goal of $60,000 to be raised in eight weeks.  Now, with two weeks left until zero hour, we are just shy of 85% (see the thermometer in the sidebar).

I am cautiously optimistic that we will get the remaining 15% in these last two weeks.  Thank you to all of you who have donated, sent in your pictures of "heart hands", and have prayed for the Herman family.  The support for the campaign and the family has been awesome to experience.

Another reason that we wanted to get in and get out with the campaign is so we can all go back to normal life as soon as possible.

I have yet to plan out my garden or get the soil prepared.
I have yet to have a spring brunch.
I realized yesterday that it's our turn to host Supper Club in April and I haven't even begun to think about a date, theme, or menu.

Real life needs to come back real soon.

Although, I have to say that it has been good for the old pocketbook to eat out of the freezer for several weeks.

Saturday night we went to see "One Night of Queen" with some friends at the historic Strand Theatre in downtown Shreveport, LA.

Engineer was reading about the concert in the entertainment section of The Shreveport Times and found out that the lead singer won a British talent show in 2000 called "Stars in Their Eyes."

What's amazing is that Engineer and I remembered seeing him on telly!  Who would've thought that a guy we happened to see on a random show while in England thirteen years previous would be playing a concert for which we happened to get tickets?!  By the way, the show was very entertaining.

Diva had a lovely Spring Break.  She spent the night with a friend, had a friend spend the night with her, we saw Oz, the Great and Powerful, and generally were pretty relaxed.

Here is what we will be having this week:

Sunday - Charleston Rice Casserole (that we didn't get to last week) and Cabbage
Monday - Chicken Pot Pie & Bok Choi
Tuesday - Paprikash over Rice
Wednesday - Fried Cabbage and Roasted Vegetables
Thursday - Green Curry over Rice w/Mango Chutney
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Leftovers

This is part of Menu Plan Monday.


  1. Ran into your blog today in my blog-read-break. I love your home-made buttons and your lay-out. This blog makes me nervous thought... I need to plan my (edible) garden too! Have been postponing that for some weeks now... Knowing somebody else on the planet needs to do that as well makes me, well, want to actually DO it today instead of putting it on tomorrow's to do list. That's good!

    1. Glad you stopped by Ms. JUD and could be encouraged to cross some stuff of your To Do list. :)
