Genius Grandgirlies and a Menu Monday

It was a very nice long holiday weekend here on the Prairie Farm.  Nothing too much out of the ordinary happened, except the Genius Grandgirlies have begun homeschooling with sweet Mommy as their teacher (hence it being called “home” school).  They called to tell us the 5 European bodies of water, count by twos and tell Pappo thank you for their pretty new dresses.  (Yes, he spoils them.)  And we now know Baby#3’s name and I C.A.N.N.O.T wait to meet that little darling!  I have a very pink and flowered quilt kit waiting to be sewn for said Babe. 
I worked on Bff’s anniversary quilt... it now is a quilt top, rather than just misc. blocks.  I put the first border on this afternoon and will get the second one on this week.

I was taking inventory of my pantry and freezers this weekend and keep finding ideas for meals.  It’s time to share some menus again, now that the weather has tempered and we’re eating more than just salads and watermelon.

Menu for September 6-11
Monday, (Labor Day)  We “labored” at home so today’s menu was pretty typical of that kind of day.
Lunch-Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Chips, Avocado Salad (for me), Zucchini Brownies
Dinner-Grilled Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Fruited Pasta Salad (also known as Frog-eye Salad).

Tuesday: Chicken Kabobs, Rice Pilaf, Spinach/Lettuce Salad, Brownie Sundaes.

Wednesday:  Chili Soup, Corn Muffins, Carrots

Thursday:  Breakfast Night- Sausage Biscuits, Hash browns, Fruit Salad

Friday:  Grilled Steaks, Baked Potatoes, Salad

Saturday:  C.O.R.N.  (Clean Out Refrigerator Night)  or Date Night.

Sunday:  As usual, it’s Cook’s day/night off.

Have a wonderful first week of September!

  1. frog eye salad, sounds intreeging lol

  2. I should clarify... Baby#3 is still incubating in Mommy and is due in February. But we know it's a "she" and she has a name already. This Grammie is just "a little" eager to meet her.
