Happy Lunar New Year! This year is the year of the Fire Monkey. This is the time of the year to shore up all your good luck for the coming year. Jade at Steamy Kitchen has a great post about what foods to eat to ensure good luck all year (lots of noodles!).
We’re also coming around to the end of Carnivale season with Lundi Gras today and Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday tomorrow. We have to get all our bad habits out of our system before Ash Wednesday and the sobering start of the Lenten season. I may not be the best practicing Catholic, but years of training and good old fashioned guilt from my mother keep me meat-free on Fridays during Lent.
To that end….my weekly meal plan:
Monday- Beef & Broccoli & rice
Tuesday-(games) Jambalaya & cornbread
Wednesday-(Ash Wednesday) Minestrone soup & grilled cheese
Thursday-(game) You pick your own meal from the freezer
Friday-(game) Fish Fry
Saturday- hoping possibly to make a quick trip up to Wisconsin????
