Menu Plan Monday, 5/24 – 5/30

I have been slammed the last couple of weeks, and this is my last intense week of preparation leading up to the 3rd Annual Briarcliff Has Heart Memorial Day 5K Run/2 Mile Walk. This event raises money for my community library, and I am in charge of graphics. That loosely translates into fliers, signs, the race t-shirts (more than 650 of them!), updating a web site, and more. It is a job that I enjoy, and I certainly the positive feedback is a lot more concrete than the praise I get for my “real” job of being a mom. But I will look forward to a break after the race on Monday!

The Momofuku Milk Bar’s Compost Cookies I mentioned last week will have to wait until after Memorial Day.

Monday: Baked chicken, peas, challah

Tuesday: Leftover chicken, pan-fried gnocchi & Brussels sprouts

Wednesday: Boboli pizzas, carrots & celery

Thursday: Martha’s Slow-Cooked Tex-Mex Chicken & Beans, green salad, tortilla chips

Friday: Eating out

Saturday: Eating out

Sunday: Grilled rib eyes, salad, garlic bread
