Today’s post title might have you thinking I’m craving a big ol’ leg of lamb or rack of lamb– perhaps for an Easter feast. I’m not actually a lamb-eater, however, and the title has more to with the weather than food cravings.
What’s that they say? “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”? Well, I am READY for that lamb! The Northeast has had a very snowy, very cold winter and it’s time to move on, I say! (Of course, I say that as I sit on my couch surrounded by children who are hanging out during yet another two hour delay due to trecherous roads… but I digress.)
Anyway, in the meantime, while I dream of sunnier, balmier days, we gotta eat, right?
So here’s the plan:
B–Cereal, Grapes, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Ham, Egg, Cheese, & Fried Potato breakfast skillets, Fruit
D–Burger King. True story: a BK opened in our town over six months ago. Since then, our children have thought it would be the most amazing thing to get to go there sometime. So this was it. More truth: they wound up enjoying the paper crowns far more than the food, but they still enjoyed the experience.
B–PB Raisin Toast, Milk
D–Macaroni & Veggie Soup (in the slow cooker)
B–Cereal, Grapes, Milk
D–Pepper Jack Pasta, Carrot sticks
B–Strawberry Muffins, Cheese
D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (date night)
B–Strawberry Muffins, Apples, Milk
D–Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles w/ broccoli & carrots
B–Egg Sandwiches, Strawberry-Pink Grapefruit Slush
D–Pizza! (I’ve been out of yeast for two weeks. I refuse to buy those pricey packets, so I’m waiting on a friend with a Costco membership to nab me some. In the meantime, I’ve been making a yeast-less crust that I’m working on tweaking to make the family happy. I’m getting there! I’ll share if I ever perfect it. )
B–Fried Potatoes & Eggs, mixed fruit
D–Buffalo Chicken Chili, Corn Bread
And that should do it!
