The Week Ahead... 11/5/12

As I've mentioned before, I'm a Girl Scout leader. I have a troop of eight high school girls (seven 11th graders and one 10th grader.) I have two co-leaders, and none of us have girls in the troop. In fact, we're all in our early 30s, and two of us have young boys.

I had a wonderful weekend with my Girl Scout troop. My co-leader's mom has a house at Lake Anna, VA and she graciously let us stay there for a fun overnight! Mainly the girls got a chance to be girls. They talked, fished, drove the golf cart, made fires, ate s'mores, and talked some more.

We did work on our Sow What Journey, which explores food and the environment. We discussed making a hotbox to sow seeds in and then growing them in window gardens. We also had a "Chopped Challenge" which was basically like a team version of the show Chopped. I was blown away by their creativity and cooking skills. I have lots of notes and pictures, so I'll be blogging on that in the future, even though it wasn't gluten and diary free.

Menu for the Week of November 5, 2012
What's up this week, folks? ELECTION DAY (at least in the US)! That's right, I'm excited to exercise my responsibility to vote. I don't care who you vote for, I just hope you vote. Some people consider it a right, but I think it's my responsibility as a citizen. I will be voting after work, so we'll be eating leftovers that night.

Monday: Curried Spinach and Chickpeas with rice (it didn't get made last week)

Tuesday: leftovers
  • prep Wednesday meal

Wednesday: Kale Meatballs with potato salad

Thursday: scrambled eggs or leftovers

Friday: salad spring rolls with Trader Joe's frozen biryani

Saturday: Ham Bean Soup
