Weekly Menu 9/8 - 9/12


This was the first weekend I didn't have anything to do and I couldn't go to the pool. It's always a strange time, switching from summer to fall. I try to avoid it as much as possible, and my mom even invited us to her pool, which is still open, but I had so much to do around here that we declined.

I didn't get nearly as much done as I expected, but I'd still call it a fairly successful weekend. One thing we did do was order tickets to the county wine festival which is being held at a manor house at the end of this month. We opted to go for the VIP tickets which come with a ton of different foods from the Pairings Bistro restaurant we like so much. I absolutely can't wait to go!

When we were at Wegman's the other day, I noticed they still had hatch chiles. I thought their season was very short and wasn't expecting to find them. But they were $1 per pound and I absolutely could not pass up that price, so I purchased a pound of them with absolutely no idea what to do with them. So unlike me!

Sunday - Gouda, Bacon and Hatch Chile Mac and Cheese

Monday - Ginger-Garlic Shrimp Stir Fry

Tuesday - Pumpkin Chili

Wednesday - Crock Pot Stewed Chicken 

Thursday - Spicy Rum Pork with Baked Potatoes and Corn 

A pound of the hatch chiles turned out to be 5 of them. One went into the mac and cheese, as stated above. I'll add one into the stir fry, one into the chili and then for lunch this week I'm having chicken fajitas and one went into that mix as well. Which just leaves me one lonely chile. I'm sure I'll find a home for him soon enough.

For breakfast I'm continuing the green smoothie tradition.

Baked goods for the week include oatmeal chocolate bars, pumpkin whoopie pies, and chocolate banana muffins.
