Menu Plan Monday - April 23,2012
Despite the wind and temps dropping, yesterday was a great day for strawberry picking!
We are fortunate to have a farm around the corner from us. We went a few weeks ago for a play-date for the kids. They had a blast and I made a big batch of strawberry smoothies afterwards.
I plan on making (another) batch of my Grandmother's Strawberry Jam today. I've already made it a few times this Spring. I know at least one of my readers has been asking for me to post this recipe for a while (yes Keith, I promise I will this week). I can't seem to make enough of it. My kids go crazy for it. Especially my son. He could eat a jelly sandwich (nothing else, just bread and jam) everyday. Honestly, he could probably just sit and eat the whole jar with a spoon, if I let him! :)
Anyway, back to the menu plan:
Monday - Minestrone soup with homemade baguettes.
Tuesday - Pasta night
Wednesday - Peach Whiskey Chicken, from The Pioneer Woman's new cookbook...I just got my book from Amazon on Friday and I can't wait to dive in!
Thursday - Maybe Macaroni and Cheese, veggies
Friday - Pecan Chicken, Challah.

P.S. I updated the page with a link to the recipe for the jam.
