Menu Plan Monday: November 30th

Goodbye November. Hello December! Can you believe it? It seems like once school starts, the rest of the year just flies right bye. The end of the year also means that my pantry and freezer are about empty. I like to use up whatever I can in there and then start over again in the new year. I hate to waste food. So this week I'm using up the last of my white rice, frozen veggies and meat.

Monday:  Supper Club fish with rice and broccoli.

Tuesday: Pot Roast and mashed potatoes.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Spaghetti, meatballs and salads.

Friday:  Sausage, rice and corn.

It's not very often I crave food anymore. Mostly I eat because an alarms tell me to or everyone else is hungry. But I just love this fish recipe. Speaking of fish, last week I bought 2 fresh tuna steaks so that I could make myself some sashimi (raw fish). I got a few bites in before the boys asked for a taste. Then they asked for their own plates. They ate it all.

I love that they love all kinds of food. Today while we were grocery shopping they were jumping up and down, begging me for octopus and smoked oysters.  Another shopper made a face and I so badly wanted her to look at me glaring at her. That is one of my biggest pet peeves ever. People who make faces or gagging noises when people talk about food they like. The boys will not eat mushrooms because my mother in law said they are nasty. The used to eat them right up.

I have personally eaten a lot of strange things. David thinks the reason every Ostrich I see tries to eat me is because they can still smell that I ate one of their ancestors. It was for a food festival and our chef asked me to try his dish. It was almost as unpleasant as turtle. Rock snails aren't as bad as you would think they are too.

Well, that escalated quickly. Sorry.

I'll stop here! You can make a face now. Don't worry I can't see you!

What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?
