So, this week poses some interesting challenges. I don’t have a stove or an oven. At least for now. And I’m guessing it’s better to plan like I don’t because I have plenty of items that I can throw in the oven if somehow I end up with one. Chip reminded me that we have a behemoth of a gas stove at the church, but unless he wants to be the one to go use it, well, I don’t have a stove or oven this week!
So it’s been a stretching kind of day as I’ve worked to prepare my menu for this week. It wouldn’t be such a problem, but I’m a good cook. Because of that, we’re a bunch of food snobs around here. Because right now I’m dreaming of foods like eggplant parmesan, baked ravioli, gumbo, sweet & sour chicken, lasagna, etc… All of those things it’s kind of hard to make without a working range. This week could make for some interesting dinners.
Monday – Steak & Shake
Tuesday – Stuffed Hamburgers
Wednesday – Crockpot Pizza (I’m going to have Chip grill extra hamburgers on Monday so I can crumble them for this dish – not two excited about having it two weeks in a row, but the kids are.)
Friday – Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue a la my friend Karen!
Saturday – Chipotle Spiced Shrimp
Sunday – Fellowship dinner (I think I’m going to bring Muffuleta since you don’t have to cook it)
