Coming Right Up

I will get to the menu plan for March.  This March is a weird month--at least it will end oddly.  Beginning NEXT Monday, my kids will be eating at the high school for more than a week as they prepare for the school's spring musical.  The Play Parents (or as I call them, not disparagingly as I'm part of this group this year, the Stage Mothers,) provide dinner for the entire cast, crew and orchestra for about 10 days during Tech Week.

There are themed meals; parents donate food, labor and time.  I'll be bringing part of the dinner each night and serving, cooking and cleaning up for 4 of those nights.  It's going to be weird not to cook at home, but this is a nice time for the kids involved in the play to bond with each other over a meal and a common goal.  (They also have a Mass on either the Saturday or Sunday during play weekend--it's a Catholic school; they are making sure the kids can get to church even though they are spending lots of time with the play.)

Today my neighbors had a party for their daughter and I wound up with a lot of turkey leftovers.  (Long story.  We got lots and lots and lots of Dark Meat Turkey.  It was a small price to pay for donating the use of my oven to cook it.)  I'll freeze some, but some of it is going to show up this week in our dinners.  good thing I've got a nice big list of things I can make with turkey!


  1. Good luck with your dinners this week! Turkey is so versatile. Yum! I can't wait to see what you're going to make with it.
