Happy Monday! Some menu plans just write themselves. This was not one of those weeks! I had Monday locked down but the rest of the week was a quandary. Here we go:
Monday: Orange Chicken, Rice, Broccoli
Tuesday: Jamie Oliver’s Curry. A solution for the abundant kale in the garden. We make the curry vegetarian with chickpeas, cauliflower and kale.
Wednesday: Received a coupon via email from Pizza Hut for large 1 topping carryout for $6.55. Sounds good to me. Arugula salad from garden.
Black bean soup – Dinner at home
Thursday: The Best (and Easiest) Black Bean Soup. Cornbread.
Friday: Breakfast for dinner, which could be eggs, turkey sausage or pancakes with blueberries

Baby Bok Choy – We don’t mind the cold weather!
Monday – Memorial Day in the United States. My kitchen is closed today!
Tuesday – Make your own Taco Salad Night… made fresher with choices of black beans, oven roasted corn kernels, avocado, salsa, crisp Romaine in addition to the usual suspects of cheese and chips.
Wednesday – Spaghetti and home-made garlic bread. Salad from Tuesday.
Thursday – Cook out! Bratwurst, beans, and fruit salad. Root beer floats as a treat.
Friday – The Best (and Easiest) Black Bean Soup: 1 can refried black beans, 1 can diced tomatoes with juice, chicken or vegetable stock to thin to desired consistency. Heat gently. Add any or all of the following: frozen corn, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, sour cream on top, etc. Serves 2-3 or increase amounts of black beans accordingly. Great with some corn bread on the side!
Naughty Peter Rabbit! Willing to jump a fence for baby kale. Now I know why Mr MacGregor was so mean.
