Our Menu (Week of March 25, 2012)

Cinnamon roll biscuit strips: This is what happens when you forget to roll up the dough before slicing.  I blame Monday.

Ah, the rain is back.  After a week of sunny skies, the rain started again yesterday afternoon.  Then I had the pleasure of hearing it pitter patter during 2 hours of Mad Men (sigh) and all through the night.  Bliss.  I love planning our menu as I watch the rain out my kitchen windows.  Rain makes me hungry.  Lots of things make me hungry.
