Mine was a little busy. I was on call for the hospital and after my visits on Saturday, we headed up to Tractor Supply and picked up these:
Yep, baby chicks! They're just pullets so I guess we'll see what we have as they grow. The boys are loving them, as always, especially John. He'll sit in front of the cage just about all day playing Legos and watching the chicks.
Last week was a big week for the boys.
John took first place and Josiah second in their division of the Pinewood Derby.
Josh passed his Phase 1 test at MMA class to advance to Phase 2.
I'm trying a couple of new recipes this week for my menu:
Monday: Stuffed peppers, egg noodles and applesauce.
Tuesday: Crock pot Honey Apple Pork Loin, sweet potatoes and sauteed zucchini.
Wednesday: Loaded nachos (taco meat, beans, chips, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ect).
Thursday: Alice Springs Chicken, baked potatoes and carrots.
Friday: Pancakes and eggs.
Sunday: Pot roast with potatoes and carrots.
I'm also planning on some baked sweet potatoes for lunch. I'm finally at the bottom of the box on both the 80 pounds of sweet potatoes and the last 50 pound bag of potatoes from this summer. I actually bought potatoes for the first time in over a year last time I went to the store.
My once a month shopping is still working really well. I picked up 4 gallons of milk and a loaf of bread at Shop & Save on my way home from co-op on Friday. Don't forget if your local that S&S will have their milk on sale at $2.89 until Tuesday. Great stock up price.
