I don't usually buy a lot of groceries at once. Usually I buy a little bit as I can, here and there. Well, this past week I made it a point to get all I needed for the week to save on a few trips.
With that I was able to do something I've wanted to do for awhile. I've cooked and frozen enough meals for the week. I realize some of you reading this may already do that. So forgive me if my excitement over such a feat seems silly.
My menu for the week?
Meatloaf - which I am famous for, at least in my house.
Potato and Ham a soup - a new recipe for me, that was awesome.
Butler Hamburger Casserole - it's called "Butler" because it's the combination of a recipe and my own idea's.
Chili - for my hubby.
Turkey Meatballs in sweet and sour sauce - which will be cooked with rice.
It's a strange and comforting thought to just be able to pull out a container, put it in the oven and have it ready for dinner that night.
There are sites I've been told about that help you make a menu for an entire month. Of course it requires cooking for an one whole weekend. But could you imagine it? Dinner's for a month? I could handle that. Maybe I should recruit some friends and we could all do this over 2 days. Any volunteers?
Well, now that I have it all done but the Chili that is in the slow cooker I am going to settle down with my boys, my favorite dessert and a movie. Can you guess what my favorite dessert is? Ten guesses and the first nine don't count. Ha ha ha!
Have a good rest of your Family Day weekend everyone. I'll talk to you again soon.
