Menu Plan Monday, November 7!

Standard

So–after being busy busy busy last week I didn’t cook much. We only got take-out once though, so I was happy about that. I kind of just cooked a few things and we made meals with those things. For instance, I made 4 cups of rice thinking beans and rice, but we ended up doing fried rice and I used the rest to make Dijon broccoli and rice one day and rice with mushrooms and any other veggies I could find another day. I’m ready for some healthy comfort foods this week! How about you?

Happy Fall!

Happy Fall!

Breakfasts:
pumpkin pie–just the recipe on the back of a can with coconut sugar and 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 3/4 cup. (I always use coconut milk instead of the evaporated milk to make it dairy free.) I also used some leftover snickerdoodle cookies for the crust (usually I just make the pie without the crust!)
Toast–almond butter and jelly toast can take you a long way in the morning!
Eggs

Lunches:
Leftover soup and salad
hot dogs, green beans, and chips for the princess
I’m honestly not sure what my husband is eating!

Dinners: (I am using dairy substitutes for all these soups–my favorite cheeze is the daiya brand)
Potato Soup with biscuits
Breakfast for dinner: probably these pancakes with apple butter
cheddar chowder with muffins
Roasted salmon, potatoes, asparagus

Remembering this special friend today.

The Girl Who Couldn't Eat Anything

These past weeks I’ve been extra sad. One of my friends from college passed away recently. We had lost touch since we both graduated, but his name always made me smile and made me remember the experiences we had working together. He was great at making people laugh and being a friend. Here are some of my memories of Chris.

When I first started working with him (we worked in the computer lab/tutoring center together) I was in charge of putting together the schedule for the students. I got Chris’ availability sheet from him and filled out the schedule according to the needs of the computer lab. Chris didn’t like his schedule so he went to our boss’s boss and got it changed to what he wanted.
Even though we got off on the wrong foot after the scheduling conflict it was impossible to stay annoyed with Chris for long…
