Menu plan Monday - rabbit stew

I am not really in the mood to write much.

I had an AMAZING weekend. But, then it came crashing to a halt when a friend brought it to my attention that I really hurt her feelings...during the course of our scrapbooking weekend I offended her. I am glad she said something, I truly did not realize my comments upset her...and I feel badly about that...but now, I am upset. So, I did not sleep very well last night (couple that with staying up to watch Desperate Housewives, and then getting up for work at 3am) and my Monday did not start off too well. While driving to work at 3:30am, I hit and killed a little bunny...oh ya! I did, and I am a wreck about it...what a great start to the week!

So, without whining anymore, here is my dinner menu for this week. And, um, no, we are not having any rabbit dishes! You can find lots of other meal ideas at Menu Plan Monday entries at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Monday - Chicken drumsticks with corn peas and rice
Tuesday - Green Curry Shrimp with mixed veggies and couscous
Wednesday - Crockpot Mexican Pork - Recipe below
Thursday - Spaghetti and meatballs
Friday - Vegetable Quinoa with Tilapia

1 pound pork boneless loin roast – cut into 1" pieces
1 20 oz jar salsa
1 4oz can chopped green chiles -- drained
1 15oz can black beans -- rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese -- if desired

Mix pork, salsa and chiles in 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hour or until pork is tender. Stir in beans. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with cheese.

Yikes, I guess you did have a lousy start to the too.

Fight with the hubby, pissed off a blogger with a comment...and I'm off to therapy...yeah, I think I'll just go back to bed.

I'm thinking maybe bunny for dinner is not a good idea...wouldn't that fall under roadkill stew?

Well, sometimes that happens. I probably have this happen a few times a month with customers.
Sorry hear about the bunny. I still think about the skunk that I hit in 1996.
Enjoying my day off, doing some MPM blog visiting and listening to Dr. Laura's radio show.
I hope that you have beautiful spring weather in your neck of the woods.
