Hi guys! I'm having a bit of a late start today. Ronnie went back to work this morning and after he left, I actually went back to bed. I have to admit, it was glorious!
This weekend has been a whirlwind. Ronnie & the boys went camping about two hours away on Friday and came back late Saturday - in the exact same clothes they left in. (Insert gagging sound here). They smelled awful, but they had a lot of fun.
My menu plan - and my pantry challenge - have changed due to Hurricane Sandy coming up the coast. I've mentioned before that our electric goes out if you fart cross eyed, so I revamped my plans and of course, ran to the evil empire this morning to stock up on milk, bread and water.
Here's the plan for this week:
Monday: Roast chicken, baked potatoes and honey carrots
Tuesday: Hot dogs and sauce, macaroni & cheese and peaches
Wednesday: Pancakes, eggs and bacon.
Thursday: Spaghetti with meat sauce, salad
Friday: Chicken stir fry and rice.
Saturday: Sandwiches and fruit.
Sunday: Pizza - or leftovers.
If the electric is out an extended period, we have gas logs to heat our home and I can use the stove top to cook. I am now regretting my decision to throw away our broken grill and wait until next Spring to replace it, but we'll survive. Hopefully it's not as bad as expected for everyone.
So, what's your plans for the week?
