    Menu Plan ~ February 22, 2009

    The last week of February is upon us.  Why sometimes does it seem that the shortest month of the year seems to last the longest?  I honestly believe that it is because the weather is miserable and illnesses are running rampant.  We have been fortunate to have a slight warm up here in Ohio, but today it is back to cold & a smattering of snow on the ground.  I look forward to March and the prospect of warmer weather.  I know that it can and does snow in Ohio in March, as evidenced by the 20 inches we got last year in March from 1 storm.  It was UGLY and not something I wish to have repeated this year.  I look at the end of February as the signal that the end of winter is near.  This week also happens to be the start of Lent, Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and that means that Easter is not too far off, 46 days to be exact. 

    This year for Lent I will be giving up gluten.  Ha ha…just kidding.  LOL!  No, seriously, I will be giving up wine.  I remember as a child we used to give up candy or soda pop (not that we ever had these 2 items freely anyway).  I don’t drink an overly abundant amount of wine, but I drink enough and I love the taste of my cabernet or pinot grigio with dinner or my dark chocolate with some good red wine. 

    Onto the meal plan:

    Sunday ~ Salmon, brown rice (steamed), veggies & salad

    Monday ~Shrimp Scampi Alfredo, veggies & salad

    Tuesday ~Herbed Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes & veggies, & salad

    Wednesday ~Lasagna, steamed veggies, bread & salad

    Thursday~ Mexican Pizzas or soft tacos, corn, & salad

    Friday~ Homemade pizza, veggies & salad

    Saturday~Out or leftovers

    Hope you all have a wonderful week!
