Weekly Menu Plan

Mrs. Jakes had sent up stew and apple pie. "Oh, good," said Miss Marcy. "Stew's so comforting on a rainy day."

I have never read "I Capture the Castle" or even heard of Dodie Smith but I do like this quote I found of hers.

And I love stew ~ it IS so comforting on a cold winter night.

I haven't planned the weekend menu yet because this is when we usually do our errands that take us into the big city.  We may stop somewhere for lunch or dinner.

Do you plan a weekly menu?

What's for dinner tonight?

  1. I have to confess...sometimes I do and sometimes I don't plan a weekly menu. And that is probably why it isn't always as tasting sounding as the one you've shared with us. I really do need to get back in the habit of doing so.

    1. Dianna, I don't always have such hearty tasty meals. My husband was gone all last week and so I'm fattening him up! xo

  2. I usually make a weekly menu which is always subject to change depending upon if we get home late or if we have unexpected guests. Tonight it was leftovers.

    1. Regina, exactly! I always realize there needs to be some wiggle room!

  3. I don't really menu-plan, apart from the weekends when Rick and I are together. Well, Sunday dinner is my job; Saturday is his, and sometimes Friday we go out with friends. During the week I'm pretty loose. But I love stews and pot pies and my freezer is packed with marinara sauce and pesto I did last fall. No one will go hungry here. We might get bored with it, but not hungry!

    1. Jeanie, that's great that you divide up the weekend cooking! Bored and not hungry is a good thing! :-)

  4. I'll be right over, Gina! Your menu sounds so good! I do plan sometimes, but sometimes, not. I tend to have leftovers which come in handy.

    1. Kitty, my menu plan was shot to pieces with all the rescue drama. My Wed/Thur menu plans did not come to pass.

  5. I usually do 3 days at a time, and try to make things that he can take to work for his lunches, too but that doesn't always work out., those days he takes a sandwich to work.

    1. Connie, I used to do that too when my husband used to comment into NYC for work. He certainly appreciated a warm lunch!

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
