Some repeats from last weeks list since I didn’t follow it completely.  I did make the insides of the chicken pot pie tonight so we’ll definately be having that tomorow.  I still need to get the recipe for the Pasta with Almonds from my Mom, but she made it for Christmas for my vegetarian cousin and it was SOOOOO delicious, so I’m determined to make it this week :).

Usually I’m happy to see 20 or so hits to this blog on a normal day and kind of figured I’d get a few extras on St. Patrick’s Day because of my title, but I couldn’t believe it when I saw 99 hits on Monday night!  I know that’s a drop in the bucket for a lot of people but I was quite impressed LoL.  Next year I’ll have to be more prepared and have an Irish giveaway or something! 

And I know I’m really late with this but here’s my menu plan for this week…

Monday: Corned Beef and Cabbage and Potato soup (of course!)

Tuesday: Sloppy Joes on English Muffins

Pork chops and applesauce (That’s Swell!)


Chicken Marsala

I know I’ve been slacking on the picture Saturday but I have been taking pictures…lots of them!  I just got a new camera, which I love!  I just haven’t gotten around to putting the software on my computer yet so I can upload pictures.  I got the HP R937, its got a 3.6″ viewing screen and a touch screen rather than buttons, plus its like having Photoshop right on your camera!  There’s all kinds of cool effects you can add to your photos like making it into a cartoon look or a kaliedascope, or making it look like a pencil sketch.  You can also do touch ups like if someone has a blemish on their face, and my favorite, the ‘slimming’ feature LoL!  I promise to get up some examples in by the weekend! 

Ok, before I go let me give one more plug for my Movie Quote Trivia…I think there’s four left to be guessed and I added hints.  I’ll post the answers on Friday if no one’s guessed them yet.

Menu Plan…

Ok, I’ve tried this before but I swear I will stick to it this time LoL.  Actually I’ve kind of been keeping a menu plan in my head for the last month or more so I will really try to make it official every week by posting here.  Since Scottie cooks dinner the days he gets home first I’m just listing some meals we’ll make each week and we’ll pick one each night.  I’ll also throw in a more involved meal most weeks for Saturdays when we’re both home all day and have more time and help, but not this week.  This Saturday is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in our town and afterwards we’re going to Darby O’Gills, an Irish Bar/Restaurant where we can get some Irish Delicasies like Shepard’s Pie or Irish Stew, to go with the theme of the day.  Anyway…I digress…back to my menu plan.  So here’s this week’s list…

Sausage, Egg and English Muffin sandwiches (Monday)

Chicken Ceasar Salad

Sloppy Joes

Chicken Parmasean

English Muffin Pizzas

Ok, there it is…let’s see how we do :)!
