Monday Menu Planning

Good morning and happy Monday! I know that's an oxymoron for some folks but since I don't work outside the home, the beginning of the workweek means an empty house and a return to a structured schedule, something I typically enjoy.

This week I'll be making a couple of the recipes I didn't get around to last week, as well as a few new ones. 

Monday: Red Beans & Rice
Tuesday: Tacos
Wednesday: New Orleans' Style White Beans 
Thursday:  Crockpot Callaloo Soup 
Friday:  Pizza

How was your weekend? I have been feeling a bit under the weather so I didn't do much cooking, or anything else for that matter, over the past few days.   We ate out a couple of times, enjoyed a nice happy hour..

took Chip's vintage car out for a drive to New Smyrna Beach..

but otherwise I relaxed around the house eating leftover soup, sandwiches and quickie meals. I did make a homemade pizza which tasted much better than it looked..grin...just dough, fresh tomatoes & basil, yum!

Well, I think I hear the dryer calling my name, better get moving.  Have a wonderful day!




  1. The pizza looks great! I've been meaning to make one with homemade pesto, made with nutritional yeast instead of parm. Just have been so stinking busy canning all the bounty from the garden. Haven't even had time for reading/writing blogs. Just trying to catch up a little this morning. :)

    1. Aisling, I hope things have calmed down for you a bit! Wish I were there to share that bounty. :)
