menu monday

I happened upon an interesting website where many people posted links to their weekly menus each Monday. There were hundreds of links. Yes, I decided that was just the encouragement I needed to start up a new blog all about my fear of cooking. So, this is the beginning of my life as an apprehensive aliment artisan. I didn't see the site in time to include my menu for the week, so this is just a practice go at it.

Monday (yikes! that's tonight!): I think we are going to have Shrimp with Pasta. We'll see if I can conjur up all the necessary ingredients or not.

Tuesday: I am planning on something new called Oriental Chicken Wraps.

Apprehension-free Wednesday: Dinner at church:)

Thursday: BBQ Pork Sandwiches, fried okra, cole slaw.

Friday: Taquitos and Tijuana Rice with a side of Margarita.

Saturday: Hopefully, I will play the sous-chef role to Chef D.

Sunday: Asian Roast Chicken, Rice, Tossed Salad for after-church lunch.

REVIEW: I did not pull it together to make the shrimp dish and we needed to run some errands (I need a replacement belt for my antiquated Kenmore vacuum and we needed to go to Publix), I had my standby 6-inch Turkey on Wheat at Subway. Although it went against my goal of cutting down on dining out, it was reasonable in two important areas: cost and calories.
