Menu Plan Monday: November 10

We had so many changes to our menu last week. We had illness, we had elections, we had guests, we had a surprise party. We enjoyed the Turkish chicken thighs, of course I messed with it, used paprika and Aleppo pepper along with the fresh mint. The roasted potatoes, though were the real hit, I just dressed them with olive oil, cumin, coriander and salt and roasted them. The Moroccan glazed Carrots were okay, but not quite there. I pan fried the carrots to cook them, and made the glaze with honey and lemon, adding, cumin, coriander, Aleppo pepper, salt and garlic. So, basically, I didn't follow her recipe at all. They tasted like Chex Mix.

The surprise party was so much fun. The best surprise was that Mary's son, who is in the military in TX, came home to be there. So, we did the whole shout surprise thing, and she was so thrilled, but then after she settled in, Paul walked in. It was a great thing to see. Our children had a fabulous time dancing and singing and jumping around. There was karaoke, which was enjoyed by all. We decided, though, that we will never let Alexander have soda again. He was so crazy. It was Jerome, though, who had the wildest night. He was chasing one of Mary's daughter (the 19 year old!), and tripped while on the concrete floor of the carport, landed flat on his face and chipped his two top front teeth. There was much crying, and Beth felt so bad. His nose, lips and chin were unscathed, no blood anywhere, but he's a snaggle tooth until he loses those baby teeth. His teeth are still a little tender, but otherwise he is fine. I'm just glad his face wasn't broken and that it was only his baby teeth. I'll post pictures of our children soon, and you might be able to see the bigger chip (one is obvious, the other I didn't even notice until the next morning).
If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can.
What is on your menu this week?

I've never had a frittata before... a quick google makes it look like an eggless quiche? Anyway, anything with potatoes, peppers, and onions is likely to get my family's approval -- I'd love to hear more!
thanks for stopping by my place!

lovely little blog you have here.
Your menu sounds absolutely delish! I am going to try that cabbage and kielbasa soup soon! Yum!

Have a wonderful week,
