Menu April 5 - 11

Last week we didn't get to two of the meals for various reasons so they are going to be back on this week since I already have the stuff for them.

Monday: Turkey Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and fruit salad.
Tuesday: Asparagus Soup with sourdough bread and fruit.
Wednesday: Church (Cold Cuts)
Thursday: Pancakes with apple butter
Friday: Mahi Mahi and brown bastami rice.
Saturday: Chicken Stir Fry with peppers, zucchini, cabbage.
Sunday: Leftovers or breakfast foods (eggs or cereal)

I make this soup a lot and it is pretty easy I thought I'd share the recipe with you all.

Asparagus Soup
one onion chopped
3 lbs Asparagus (ends cut off and cut into inch pieces)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice (I use fresh)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half and half.
6 cups chicken broth (I make my own and then freeze it)

saute the onions in the butter for 5 minutes. Then add broth and asparagus bring to boil and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes. Place asparagus pieces in food processor and process until the desired texture. We like it a little chunky! Then put it back in the broth and add lemon juice and cream. It is ready to eat. We like to dip sourdough bread in the soup! YUMMY :)

I wish I was as organized as you to put together a weekly menu in advance. I can't even figure out what I'm going to wear to work the next day until I wake up that morning. I'm hopeless.
