Menu Planning Monday... on Tuesday :) Sept. 25

Hello! I am behind on blogging my menu plan for the week. The shop was extra busy this weekend and yesterday I spent all day making more inventory and packing orders! Today, I went for a long bike ride with one of my buddies. I also went to Goodwill to find the perfect outfit for a Murder Mystery Party. (I am the character from the wrong side of the tracks... if you know me at all, you will find this very humorous.) The party is set in the late 1950's... I am pretty much trying to look like Sandy at the end of the movie Grease... you know... the fitted black outfit and curly puffy hair. It should be a fun night!

So what's on the menu this week?
Monday- Beans and Rice with a salad.
Tuesday- Breakfast for dinner. Pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit.
Wednesday- Sweet White Corn Chowder with a salad.
Thursday- Carbonara with Sausage and Mushrooms. Serve with green peas.
Friday- leftovers
Saturday- Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos with rice, black beans, and lime wedges.
Sunday- takeout

This past weekend, my daughter asked if we could make fondue, so we tried this recipe. It was delicious with cubes of sour dough bread, pumpernickle bread, and apple wedges. Of course, we also made chocolate fondue for dessert. Easy peasy... we just melted chocolate chips over a double boiler and stirred in a few marshmallows.(We heated the marshmallows in the microwave first to make the soft.) For dippers we had strawberries, oreos, pretzels, and marshmallows. It was fun. The kids loved it! My daughter made menus on the was really cute! (And I did not take a single photo... too busy eating chocolate, I guess!)

Hope you all are doing well! Has your week been busy or slow?
