On the Menu Monday - Week 50

We had a really fun weekend! Friday we started the weekend with the British Advertising Awards at the Walker Art Center, SO much fun, great videos. After we joined another couple out for drinks and some appetizers at BLVD, close to home and a nice way to end the night.

Saturday we ran errands and picked up some last minute items for dinner. We had two couples that could not make it to our holiday party for dinner. The menu wound up being appetizers, boneless leg of lamb roast, individual scalloped potatoes made in a muffin tin and steamed asparagus tips. It was a nice dinner and a great night.

Sunday we woke up to snow, and it just kept snowing. We spent the day cleaning the house and getting ready for dinner. Our parents went to see the play we had seen a couple of weeks earlier and then they joined us for dinner, and the finale of the Amazing Race. Dinner was fresh green salad (nothing fancy), chicken parmesan, sauce and spaghetti and fresh steamed green beans. We loved the finale of the Amazing Race. all of us. Awesome ending.

This week was supposed to be a travel week, but due to the weather it through things off and we are going to try to travel next week instead. So now I have to come up with a menu :).

Plans - Home, snuggling with my little Stella cat
Dinner - leftovers (especially since I did not even plan on being home), mashed potatoes, lamb and salad

Plans - Bunco! I am so glad I am home for this!
Dinner - frozen pizza. . . .

Plans - We are actually going to really go and try to see a movie, BUT, I still have not gotten pictures, which means I still have not done cards, and that may come first.
Dinner - I am going to put something on here as a back up, in case we don't go to the movies. Slow Cooker Northwoods Wild Rice Soup

Plans - Friends for dinner
Dinner - Smothered Pork Chops, White Rice, Brussel Sprouts Braised Short Ribs, mashed potatoes, acorn squash.

Plans - No plans yet, but I had planned on traveling this week, so I am sure that will change - Flight
Dinner - We will seePineda Tacos

Plans - Christmas shopping, pick up a log splitter for wood we need for the fireplace, maybe a movie - We saw Hitchcock
Dinner - up in the air at the moment - Bacio

Plans - No plans at the moment. . .
Dinner - depends on weather, this time of year, I like to make something hearty and so we have leftovers. - We had a big lunch out, at Buster's on 28th, so dinner was cheese and crackers and fruit

Thanks for the link to the soup recipe! My daughter lives in the North Woods and just got herself a crockpot so she can have a hot meal after working outside all day!
