Menu Plan Monday – Week of April 11, 2016

It’s been a while since I’ve created a menu plan.  Our dinners have been suffering since I don’t have a specific menu plan for the week.

One week I didn’t menu plan because we were suppose to use some of the food from our freezer before we went away on our Spring Break trip.  We did use a couple things from the freezer.  The second week was when we were gone for the week.  I have two blog posts coming up with some of our eats from when we were in Canada.  Last week I was suppose to be using food from the freezer.  Yep, that didn’t happen.  We had fast food twice during the week.


Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes, and Corn


Brown Butter and Sage Pork Chops, Parmesan Roasted Carrots


Sticky Chicken, Rice, Green Beans


Chicken and Tomatoes, Pesto Noodles, Green Beans


Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Chips, Veggies

On another note, one of my co-workers suggested I join a cozy mysteries reading bingo game. The theme for this game is Culinary Cozy Mysteries.  I’ve already read a book for the first theme which is Desserts.  Yeah, me!  I used to be a big reader but have been slacking.  I’m challenging myself to read at least 20 books this year and I’m at 6 so I had a very low expectation for myself.

RaspBuried Torte (Black Cat Cafe Cozy Mystery Series Book 5)RaspBuried Torte by Lyndsey Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good book. I was a little bit confused at time because I didn’t know the back history of the relationships between the main characters in the story.

A murder and possible hidden treasure keeps the reader on their “toes” as they are reading.

Here’s my review of the book I read for the Culinary Cozy Mystery Bingo.  It was an easy and good book.  I’m starting back at the first book so I can have some background knowledge of the characters since that was a little confusing.


In Ohio, there is an evaluation system for all teachers called OTES (Ohio Teacher Evaluation System – clever right?!?).  Anywho, my students took various tests to see if they have grown in reading, language, math, science, and social studies.  I had 82% of my students make their projected goal in reading – whoop!  whoop!  Some blew their goal out of the water.  Math is a different story.  So far only 40% of my students have made their goal.  I have to test a couple more students.  Hopefully those two students make their goal.

I hope you have a great week!

Happy eating,
