Menu Monday - changes already

It never fails - I make up my menu and forget about something or have something in the fridge that needs eaten up that I overlooked......

Friday night is a pizza and dessert dinner at church as part of the Missions Conference. We order pizza delivery and volunteers bring desserts. After the meal there are sessions about various missions the church supports and opportunities for serving locally and away from home.
I also learned that Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday) is traditionally Pancake Day in the UK and pancakes sound good. I will make them lighter by eating mine with some fresh fruit salad and low calorie Cool Whip instead of syrup.

And there are baked potatoes left from last week that I need to eat up today so the mashed potatoes tonight are now baked potatoes. Maybe I will slice or dice them and cook them with some gravy poured over for something different.

I had lots of small red potatoes left from the thighs and potatoes I made for lunch yesterday so I make some Golden Potato Halves last night for supper with our soup. (At least I did not burn those :-)

So will rearrange the menu a little to move some of the meals to next week. So I have a portion of next week planned now.

Isn't that the way? Life waylays our best laid plans. :) But we can be thankful those hiccups are just hiccups and not major life trauma! ~~Rhonda

Yes- I don't mind being flexible. Sometimes that makes life more fun.
