Its Monday again....
We had a nice weekend which included our first fresh potatoes of the year from my mother's garden.....
My brother planted the garden for her and plows it. She tends it as much as she can with a walking cane, one of those with the 4 little feet that keep it from falling over. She positions plastic yard chairs throughout the garden to sit in when she needs to.
She has been working especially hard in the potatoes and informed me yesterday morning when I picked her up for church that she had "grappled" us a "mess" of potatoes. This means that she dug gently around the potatoes to dig some out while letting the plant continue to grow and produce more potatoes.
Fresh potatoes are really good no matter how you cook them. They are great just boiled, but I followed up the boiling of these by frying them a little. I like to put a little butter and salt and pepper on mine.
For our lunch Sunday we had "planned over" chicken thief stew (I think my mother thought I was saying Chicken Feet or Beak Stew LOL) from Saturday, broccoli and cheese and these fresh potatoes. It couldn't have been any better if it had been prime rib! I'm ready for more fresh veggies. I love fresh squash, tomatoes, stringbeans and cabbage.
This is my menu for the week:
Saturday: Chicken Thief Stew, chicken salad, spaghetti
Sunday: Fresh potatoes, chicken thief stew, broccoli and cheese
Monday: Hamburger Steak, rice and gravy, green bean dish. (We never ate this last week, because we had so much food left over)
Tuesday: Mexican chicken, corn bread, left over green bean dish
Wednesday: Chili, Pizza
Thursday: Chicken Cacciatore
Friday: undecided :o) Fridays are always up in the air. Its usually just me and my hubby and we may be in the mood for just a banana sandwich.
I will use leftovers from all the above menus for my son and I to take for lunch at work.
