Menu What?

tap, tap. Is this thing on?

Wow. It has been a long time, hasn't it? Believe it or not, last week was the first week in AGES that I have been without a Menu Plan, so it's not as if I had no content to contribute. It's just that Mondays have been getting away from me, and then all of a sudden, it's Tuesday, and writing a post called "Menu Plan Monday" seems a bit silly. So I think, I'll just post two Plans next Monday! And next thing you know, I haven't posted a LICK since December 1.

To complicate matters, my oven is on the fritz. You know, you have no idea how often you use your oven until you have no oven to use. I've got all kinds of things I'd love to bake, and no current outlet for them. Not only that, it turns out I use my oven for dinner a LOT, so my hands feel a bit tied without it. Menu Plans are a good deal more challenging to concoct when you have tied hands.

But my family still has to eat, so...

Pan-Roasted Bone-In Chicken Breasts (I'll let you know how it works out)
Stove-top Rice Pilaf
Glazed Carrots

Crock Pot something or other--maybe Pork Roast?

Chili or Taco Soup
Noodles or Rice
Corn fritters

Bacon, Potato, and Cheese Scramble

Chicken and Dumplings

Good question

Leftovers, hopefully...

P.S. Didn't I used to post recipes on here, too? I'll have to do that soon. I think I may start with the Challah recipe I love so much. Maybe Thursday! At the very least, I'll do it before it turns to February!!
