Menu Monday Week #22, Memorial Day 2016 and some Transparency

Heather says
If you’re out grilling, boating, or otherwise enjoying this long holiday weekend, please don’t forget to take a moment to thank and acknowledge those who gave their lives so we could have this privilege.

Some of you may have noticed that it has been very quiet around here. There are a bunch of reasons for that, most of them quite boring:

Work – Spring is conference season which means I’ve been in and out of town, getting ready to leave, or hanging out at the airport, as one does.


Site problems – this is a large website, which I launched it back in 2007. There are thousands of posts, links, and images. Google gets cranky if your site isn’t super fast, so I made some changes to make Google happy, but I made a mistake. This error resulted in many, many broken links or links pointing to things that don’t exist. That mistake made Google unhappy because of course it did.
When Google is unhappy, we have to fix things, pronto. While the mistake was automated, the fix was manual. I’m sorry, Jendi! (Jendi started helping with website and social media a little over a year ago. She’s saved my sanity and is an all around lovely person, too.) This giant project is also why if you’ve sent in a question you probably haven’t heard from me. It’s on my list.


Minions – we have four, in three schools in three different districts. The end of year activity, let’s celebrate all the things, has gotten a bit out of hand. We are very proud of them, now please go outside and play. 

In a way, I’m quite glad that it is rainy and miserable out for the third day in a row, thanks to the tropical depression formerly known as Bonnie. Maybe I’ll manage some catch-up. Please stop laughing.

Trying to get back on track includes getting back to meal planning. One less decision to make after a long day can help. I’m also hoping to photograph some of these older recipes… Yes, you’ve read that before. You’ll probably read it again. 

  • Monday – Garlic and Soy Chicken Thighs, Curried Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli
  • Tuesday – Lentil Casserole, Sauteed Zucchini, Rice
  • Wednesday – Fake’n’bake pork chops, slow cooker baked apples, green beans with almonds
    Breaded and Baked Pork Chops
  • Thursday – Clean Out the Refrigerator Night
  • Friday – Dilled Salmon, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Caesar Salad
    Foolproof Dilled Salmon
  • Saturday – Chorizo Tacos, Refried Beans, Street Style Skillet Corn (recipes to come)
    skillet corn
  • Sunday – At home date night – Marinated Skirt Steak over ridiculously large salads. 

What are you having this week? Here’s a printable to help you with your meal planning. Here’s to a great, hopefully, more productive week.
