I did not expect our little vegetable garden to survive our three week absence. Amazingly, though, it did. I am encouraged, then, that by God's grace, the kids and I can manage to stave off chaos and despair while my husband is abroad. He left tonight for Vietnam; there he will teach an intensive course for new English teachers before returning next week.
While we were in Canada last month, my husband and I planned our menu together. He reminds me that enjoyable meals can be made very simply. Rice, meat, vegetables--that's really quite adequate for supper most nights. Meanwhile, the oven-like weather outside is encouraging me to keep the electric oven in the kitchen off (for the most part). Here's what I've planned for the week:
- Tuna Spaghetti Pie (cooked in the microwave)
- Venison Fajitas
- Turkey Burgers
Lunches: Lentil soup, sushi, waffles, tropical turkey/chicken wraps, rice balls and boiled eggs, pasta salad
