Menu Planning Monday, Halloween Edition

Back again for another week! We'll see how this one goes. It's my first time in four years (gulp) to work a 5-day week, even if it isn't quite full time. My husband is wonderfully taking odd shifts to help cover kid-care. So not a great week for eating together but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try to feed everyone well.

Meanwhile, comments from last week: The Robin Miller recipe was awesome--but the red curry paste has a real kick. I'll use less next time by my husband LOVED it. Didn't try the coconut rice, though--next time, and see if that helps with the kick.

And far more important than my meals: my sister in law continues to recover well. She was released from the hospital this weekend--yay! All mobility and other facilities (language, etc.) seem to be in place. She has a major headache (um, duh) and is very, very tired, but we're all practially giddy at how well it went. AND, there's a 1% chance of return, so with any luck, this will be the only time we go through this.

So, the plan for the week is:

Monday: leftovers, postponed football game goodies (all the games this weekend were put on rain delay until tonight; since I'm on my own with the boys it might be a good distraction from Daddy not being home)

Tuesday: turkey breast, acorn squash, stuffing, salad

Wednesday: Happy Halloween! Slow cooker roast pork (grandparents are hopefully coming over to staff the door while we trick-or-treat with the baby giraffes), mashed potatoes, salad, pearl onions (father in law's favorite)

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: one more football game special!

Keep fingers crossed for me, folks! For more menu plans, check out I'm an Organizing Junkie's blog carnival at her new site!
