Dog-sitting (see dog at left), dog-returning, hockey game, football game, golf, Buddhist church picnic, Christian church salmon dinner (We are a bi-religious household.), group projects for the kids, making a Shutterfly book before my free-book coupon expires, a birthday party, and shopping for birthday present. While I wish I could say I planned ahead and ordered online, I ended up shopping a couple hours before the actual event.
So Monday has been deemed catch-up day. With that, here's what's *not* cooking on Monday. By the time Tuesday rolls around, I shall re-acquaint myself with the stove and the grocery store.
Feeding My Ohana Buffet Night, aka, Clearing Out the Refrigerator Lest a Biological Hazard Ensue. Mauna Lani Leftover Chicken Pasta Salad, Quinoa Salad from yesterday's picnic, salmon from a church fundraiser on Saturday, and some chicken hamburgers from last night. Thinking the salmon and quinoa will play nicely together and the pasta salad will work with the chicken burgers.
I'm feeling a little pang of longing for Elena's in Waipahu, so it's Pork Adobo Fried Rice for dinner.
Wontons. The kids have been asking for these and I can freeze a bunch of them. The thought of a bowl of steaming won ton min on a miserable November evening is already sounding good. It will be so worth the extra work this week.
