Menu Plan Monday ~ Nov 10th

Hi my name is Tara and I am the Org Junkie’s little sister. While I am sitting here posting this, Laura is just laying around, enjoying her vacation. Since my sister is here visiting us, we thought that it was only proper that we post our menu for the week.

We will be extremely busy in the coming week, there are still a few stores that Laura has not yet visited. I am sure that by the end of her visit that I will be completely shopped out and that I won’t be able to enter another store until her next visit.

My husband is a chef at the Fairmont Royal York and Laura has requested that he cook her a fancy dinner tomorrow night. With that said here is our weekly menu plan.

Monday – Caramelized apple and thyme stuffed roast of pork, with garlic chive mashed potatoes and seasoned pan jus; accompanied with grilled asparagus tips

Tuesday – Barbecued chicken, baked potatoes and squash

Wednesday – 10 minute fettuccini

Thursday – (My Birthday!! YAY!!) Ham, roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli

Friday – Soup and Grilled cheese

I hope everyone has a great week, I know that I will. I will be spending the week with my older sister and that is always a good time. I am sure that you all know by now that she is a little crazy.

    Oops! My auto-thingy used an old title for my blog and filled it in as Sea Veg GF Book of Yum w/ risotto recipes at #10. Could you delete it for me? I re-did it as #13 correctly. Thanks so much and sorry for the mistake!

    So glad you are carrying on with Menu plan Monday- Hi Org Junkie little sister!!!!

    I finally found you! I knew there was a central place for all of the menu planners I have seen around the blog world. It just took me a few weeks of seaching to find the “home base.” I couldn’t survive without my weekly menus!

    Happy Birthday Laura’s sister. BTW Laura did an awesome job in her presentation this weekend. Don’t suppose she mentioned how popular she was and how we hung off every word…Now about those menus. Mine are so boring but couldn’t come up with anything else. Great to see you this weekend Laura – have a great visit! PS where in To are you? Can I come for cake?
