Well thank goodness,I actually planned two weeks last week, just so that would pretty much take us out of the house. I hardly ever do that, but I wanted to not have to actually go grocery shopping this week, just a run to the Stop n Shop for our three gallons of milk (can you believe that? We're transitioning Warren to whole milk, so now we're up to three gallons. And Ava barely drinks milk, and I don't drink it at all when I'm not pregnant. How many gallons am I gonna have to buy when the boys are twelve and fourteen? What if they play football?) and some extra produce. I had no idea that I was going to be out of town all week for my Grandma Judy, but of course God did, so my fridge is ready to go any way. Isn't that sort of thing just crazy? More than the big miracles like babies and curing cancer, I take comfort in the tiny, day to day mundane details that the Lord handles so well.
Anyway. I had to redo the menu that I already made a week ago because even though Nick cooked most nights while I was gone, there's still a lot from last week we didn't eat.
Sunday: slow cooker shredded beef tacos
Monday: spaghetti and meat sauce
Tuesday: jamie's chili -I modified it a little from the original, but seriously, this is the best chili ever.
Wednesday: eat out in Hartford while we pick up Grandma Jane
Thursday: oven BBQ chicken -tore this out of a magazine a long time ago, finally ready to tackle it.
Friday: prime rib (we had to cut three pounds off to fit it in the pan for our Christmas dinner party, so not we get to eat that! Hooray!)
Saturday: leftovers/take out/eat in
What's on your menu this week? I know I say it every week, but seriously, head over here for some great ideas!
