another tuesday menu


[caramel sampling]

I feel decidedly "off" this week.  My house, cooking, and menu planning are all suffering because in addition to the usual holiday craziness, I came down with a nasty, nasty stomach flu Christmas night.  I spent all day yesterday in misery, feeling rather half-alive. I am thankful that today I've been able to eat a little bit and am hoping that no one else gets sick.  I'm pretty sure that this week's menu will be more flexible than usual, but here's the tentative plan:

T-chicken, orzo with parmesan and basil, and green beans
W-breakfast burritos, fresh fruit
Th-scalloped potatoes with ham and green beans
F-crock pot stew and fresh bread (I'd like to try the no-knead 5-minutes-a-day bread.)

What are some of your favorite ways to use leftover ham?  I have a lot. : )

it's pretty good cut into bite-sized chunks and added to mac-n-cheese.
