Hello, hope all of you are good.
Here are few recent scenes from my home
|Crinum lilies in bloom|
Lately, I have not done a very good job of meal planning ahead. I do just fine when we have company but when it is just my husband and me here, I've lately not planned ahead much.
So, yesterday, I organized my recipes and planned out about 8 meals - all using ingredients we already had or bought yesterday.
There are a couple of quarts of homemade chicken broth in the fridge so I put chicken and noodles as one of the meals. Then I made the noodles last night so they could dry.
Other meals on my plan
crockpot chicken and veggies
pinto beans and cornbread
Barbecue chicken sandwiches with pickled onions on jalapeno cheese buns
rice taco salad
fiesta chicken and rice
catfish and hush puppies
This is probably close to 2 weeks worth of meals for us as most of these recipes make more than 2 servings. We both like leftovers and will happily eat the extras for both lunches or suppers, however it works out.
I hear so many people say they don't like leftovers.
That seems so silly and wasteful to me.
Most foods that were good the first time they were served, are just as good the second time.
There are a few exceptions but for the most part, we enjoy leftovers.
I also hope to do some cleaning projects this week -
like the dusty ceiling fans and all the windows.
I've also got a sewing project involving woodland camouflage fabric - the things we do for our sons!
