When I plan our meals out for the week, I ALWAYS check with the weatherman to make sure that my meals are acceptable to him. I mean, after all, if he doesn't like my plans, he changes his.
The weather, I mean.
Which is exactly what he did last week.
I think the chowder offended him.
My plans last week consisted of several soups. Not only was I planning on soups for dinner, but was counting on them for lunches too. While I was planning, it was raining. It was gloomy. It was chilly. This is Washington. Rainy weather was a sure bet.
What we got instead was heat. And sunshine. Not that I'm complaining, but I am a planner. I need to know things. And somebody forgot to send me the memo that my plans needed changing.
Instead of soups, we enjoyed a chicken satay salad, and a black bean/corn salad. We still enjoyed an awesome chili, but I served it after 8 p.m...with the windows wide open!
This week, I am only planning for a partial week. We are heading to the southern Oregon coast to celebrate our granddaughter's second birthday! Weather cooperating, we are also hoping to catch a few crabs in the bay, and reel in a few small-mouth bass at a local lake. I'm hoping for seafood, but will have some nitrite-free hot dogs on stand-by, just in case!
Here's what's cooking...
Scrambled eggs and elk sausage
leftover Cheeseburger soup, sourdough bread
Egg salad sandwiches on sourdough, sliced apples
Corndog muffins, Plum smoothies
Toasted cheese on sourdough, sliced apples
Chicken & bean enchiladas, tortilla chips, guacamole
Thai Cashew Chicken, egg rolls (these were made by a co-worker of my Mister!)
Salmon en Papillote w/ veggies (mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, onions and spinach)
Hawaiian omlettes (ham, Swiss cheese, pineapple), hashbrowns
