Monday was black eyed peas, rice and blackberry cobbler
Tuesday I made tuna rice casserole, green beans and banana nut muffins to take to someone.
We ate baked pasta, fresh fruit and crescent rolls and were joined by our son and granddaughter
The pasta bake was half pound of cooked veggie pasta, half pound of cooked ground beef, 4 cups of homemade tomato
sauce from the freezer with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top.
My husband was feeling bad Tuesday night and by morning, we knew he was sick with what we think is a bad cold.
So - no photo- but we had canned chicken noodle soup, crackers, cheddar cheese and more fresh fruit for Wednesday supper and Thursday lunch.
Thursday supper- I made another baked pasta as there was 1/2 pound cooked pasta and 1/2 pound cooked ground beef in the fridge left from Tuesday’s cooking
With high food prices, I’ll continue to try to never waste groceries.
With it, we had more fruit and brownies
Friday night, we were joined by 2 grandsons.
We had pancakes, fruit and sausage.
I picked this menu because the grandsons love pancakes and because there is fresh milk in the fridge that was just about to come to date, and that usually means that it’s going to turn sour so I wanted to use it before it did go off.
Did you notice the grass green bananas? I’m still a fan of Walmart grocery pick up, but this week’s bananas were very green!
The pecans in the two canisters were a gift from our friend with the pecan orchard. He didn’t have a very big crop at all this year but he shared 6 pounds with us. A few weeks ago my husband helped him fix the propane cannon that scares away the crows like to eat pecans before they can get picked up. This batch of pecans are especially sweet and especially tasty!
Our meals were light on vegetables this week but I hope we ate enough fruit to compensate for it. When people in the house are sick, meals aren’t always as balanced as they might be on regular days.
Our daughter and family have purchased this lot and plan to build a house on it.
isn’t the sunset pretty on it tonight?
It looks like it’s in the country and it feels like it’s in the country but it’s in the city limits and has several big established things near it.
But I think they will feel pretty secluded and I don’t think things will change too much around it. It is in a new housing development but all of the lots are pretty good size
and their lot is the biggest in the development,
