Easter Fail and Menu Planning April 9th-13th

If you read my last post then you know what yummy stuff I had planned on cooking for my hubby and I for Easter. Unfortunately, just because you plan something does not always mean that is the way it goes. Sadly, we ended up having to make some changes in our menu due to a lack of corporation amongst the eggs and I.

The Eggs won this round!
I tried and tried and tried for hours and went through over a dozen eggs attempting to get my eggs to hard boil. Sadly, it just was not working on. No matter how long I cooked them and no matter what I did they just would not become hard boil eggs, instead they were more like very softly boiled eggs, the centers still runny and the white of the egg barely cooked...

After going through a dozen eggs, I knew it was time to call it quits and accept defeat!

Mushy stuffing, no thank you!
 And then it was on to the stuffing. I knew attempting to make gluten free stuffing would be a challenge. I had never created "normal" stuffing before, let alone gluten free stuffing. I knew when I put the stuffing in the oven it was already going to be a disaster. I ended up with a mushy mess, that just tasted like seasoned mushy bread...

So sadly, no stuffing and no hard boiled eggs for Easter. But, we made due without and instead I whipped up some corn and pulled out some Hawaiian sweet rolls for my hubby.

How was everyone's Easter? Did you experience any blunders or flops in the kitchen?  Let me know!

...and now on to this weeks menu, though posted a bit late. Never less, on to the food!

Monday: Cheese Lasagna and side salads
Tuesday: Leftover Ham, salad, & Mac N Cheese
Wednesday: Grilled Cheese Burgers & homemade fries
Thursday: Steak, broccoli, & baked potatoes
Friday: Homemade Pizza
