MPM--Merry Merry March

So here we are, wind and daffodils, it must be March! I'm continuing the clean-out-the-freezer-and-pantry theme so it's a funny week:

Monday: the lemon and rosemary chicken, postponed from last week, creamed spinach, rice, salad

Tuesday: chicken tacos

Wednesday: chicken nuggets or Trader Joe's buffalo chicken meatballs for the kids, leftover chicken something for the adults, rice,

Thursday: pesto quinoa for the kids, catering by Trader Joe's for the parents (probably a flatbread and mac and cheese, and a green vegetable of some sort)

Friday: The reviews online are terrible, but a friend suggested this recipe for shrimp with lemon-saffron rice. I have a lot of these ingredients already, just begging to be used, so despite some sketchy comments, we're going to give it a shot.

Last week:

We mixed things up on Taco Tuesday again a little bit; there were still the usual for the boys, but I made the Dinner: A Love Story black bean and goat cheese quesadillas for the grownups. In a bit of a shocker, the not-picky boy ate one too. (Beans are not usually his friend, and he claims to loathe cheese, though he cheerfully orders pizza at any opportunity.) They weren't as good as the Smitten Kitchen ones but on a night when I didn't have time to fuss with slaw and other yummy things, and I had a log of goat cheese hanging around, they were terrific. (Alas, I still have a cold so take this with a grain of salt...)

And not much else to report. I have really had a lulu of a cold so between that, the concussion recovery program, and trying to cut way back on grocery shopping (the spending just crept up and up on me--a soup here, a sushi there...), I am just trying to keep things as easy as possible for the next few weeks, especially Wednesdays on.

What are you making this week? Check in at I'm an Organizing Junkie! to be inspired and to share. Have a great week!

Isn't it crazy that it's March already? Hope you recover soon and that the boy's better. We did shrimp or Mahi-Mahi tacos today. Delicious! I had never made either before. Jacob loved them. Of course Julianna merely ate tortillas, but 3 out of 4's not bad, right?

Have a great week.
