Hey, hi and howdy. Happy New Year to one and all. First menu of the year (thanks for the reminder Laura).
With the new year, comes the same old problem. What am I to serve for dinner. This plan will (hopefully) help me figure things out. My goal this week is leftovers. Next week I go back to work, and I’d much rather have leftovers to take for lunch than have to rely on sandwiches and microwave meals. I will, however, make an exception for turkey sandwiches. Frankly, I might have to considering the size of the bird I’m cooking on Monday.
I got a bread machine for Christmas, and I made my first loaf over the weekend: Whole wheat currant loaf. We’re still eating it. I don’t know which is more surprising; that it’s still edible or that I like the loaf that much. I know now that a 2lb loaf is a bit much for 2 people who don’t eat much bread.
