I feel like I have done nothing but sleep for two days. Not true as my comments around the interwebs will prove different, but I have just been so worn out.
Anyhoodle - now it is time to step back into life as the stop gap is over and time continues.....
I realized today I have way too much food in my house. I think I went a little freaky the last two times we went shopping but I seriously have a lot of food. I am not complaining, mind you...it is just weird.
For lunch tomorrow I made Wallene one of her favorites. Since we had tacos for dinner tonight I used the 2 leftover soft flour tortillas [6" diameter] and layered each with a swipe of honey mustard, a leaf of lettuce, two slices of deli ham and shredded cheese. I rolled them up and cut each in half. It totals about two bites per piece or eight total. Then I added carrot sticks, celery sticks, applesauce and a Reese's peanut butter cup for dessert with a Juicy Juice to drink. It is such a pretty, fun [healthy!] lunch - makes me want to eat it tonight. hee
Pooldad received the leftover taco meat, shredded lettuce, cheese and tomato with the hard shells in his lunch. For just three of us we can stretch out taco night pretty darn well.
Then tomorrow night I am making chili for dinner ::waving at Rudee - hi honey:: and we will use the shredded cheese, chopped onion and diced tomatoes for that. I will also add sour cream and corn muffins to make it complete.
Next the chili will make it's way into Pooldad's lunch on Tuesday with the remainder to be served over baked potatoes, with cheese and sour cream for that night's dinner. Family fav' right there - if you are ever trying to save money take leftover chili and serve it over pasta, rice or potatoes - it is really yummy and filling. In fact I find a whole lot of stuff to put over baked potatoes because they are one thing that I can eat the heck out of they are so good.
I have a pork roast planned for Wednesday with cabbage and potatoes which will turn into lunches on Thursday - roast pork sandwiches anyone? Oh yeah...with pumpernickel bread. Yum!
And then to wind out the week I have a boatload of chicken to cook up - leg/thigh quarters and bone in breasts. I have just about everything in my pantry so could someone please tell me what to do with these - because I am bored with baked, bbq and chicken salad. Actually I think I ate my weight in chicken salad this summer so - no. Oh I do know one thing I am making - check out this recipe - it is so good - AMAZING - and I have all the ingredients except I have to make my own bread bowls [no biggie - if I get lazy I am going to Panera] It is called Chicken Cordon Bleu - but not like you think. Check it out. Biz is an amazing cook - if you want great, healthy recipes her's is the blog to watch. If you don't feel like cooking healthy meals then you can just scroll through Biz's pictures of her drool worthy food. Don't go hungry. It is dangerous.
Any suggestions for the chicken would be greatly appreciated.
I also have all the makings for homemade pizza so ideas there would be fun too!
Thanks again Tadpoles. You help me immensely.
Hugs and love.
Have a great Monday!
