Meals this week

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,

My favorite thing is the pecans. I love them. All your food looks so good. I think I will make blackeye peas for New Years and eat some now and freeze some.

If I had made peas, rice and a cobbler TheHub would have thought he had died and gone to heaven!

Your meals all sound so good. I love pasta bakes and my goodness, black eye pea - a favorite.
Hope your hubby is feeling better.

Jackie said...

What excellent meals you had.... I love pasta bakes of any kind.

Hope your Hubby is feeling much better now.

God bless.

I wonder if a propane cannon is what I randomly hear at my house? It is so loud but not really close. It makes such a boom that shakes my entire house & sends all the dogs, horses, ect scurrying for cover.

I do hope everyone feels well soon.

John was given a big bag of pecans that I need to shell out. I think it's a five pound bag. I haven't had pecans on my trees here in years now. Not sure why. They're getting plenty of water from all the rain we've had but they stopped producing after that drought season we went through here. I hope in time they will begin to produce anew.

I like the looks of the lot. It does indeed look like it's out in the country and that sunset view is beautiful. I hope they get to keep that for a long while and no one builds behind them.
