Another week into the year … are you all as amazed as I am that time is flying by?? It’s a little unsettling, quite honestly.
Anyways … Hubby is traveling Monday and Tuesday and gets home on Wednesday, which means … I get to make all the things I LOVE that he’s not a fan of … you know, mango inspired stuff ;-D
And then Sonny Boy comes home Thursday and will stay through until Sunday … so I’m excited about THAT …
Still using what we have on hand and really want to cut back on grocery spending this month after the start off with $175 plus out the door … I’m actually quite certain that it was more than that … so I plan to dig deep in the freezers and create some miracles … hey, it can happen … coming down with this respiratory bug on Thursday and still lingering 4 days later has helped keep me out of the stores … this past week …
Sunday – leftover chops and Hubby whipped up a little pasta dish on the side for him as he’s suddenly become a firm believer in STARCH. Uggg.
Monday – Thai Style Shrimp – first mango inspired dish … Princess will probably be home … shrimp in freezer, produce stuff in fridge and picked up over the weekend (will stop by Whole Foods and get mango and avocados and cabbage)
Tuesday – Evil Jungle Steak Salad – second mango inspired dish. Steak in freezer, veggies in fridge and picked up over the weekend (I’m so excited, this will have mango AND avocado!). I may make a Costco run after work … we shall see (steak is in the freezer, already cooked)
Wednesday – Hubby home so the mango recipes have been put away til next time … smokey crock of pork … one last hunk of pork in the freezer to toss in the crockpot … (will pick up buns from Costco/store and use leftover cabbage from Monday. Pork in freezer)
Thursday – Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m really at a loss here as to what to make … since the Boy makes his appearance today and Princess will be here, I may just go ahead and do Pizza and call it a day … the pizza will come from Costco, $5.99 for a large pepperoni, pick up two and douse the other one with veggies for Hubby and I
Friday – Girls night out for Prickly Pear Margaritas and birthday celebrations … food? What food? Hubby will have something whipped up for when I come home … him and Sonny Boy may even decide to do a fry fest this evening with the new fryer … we’ve got lots of fry-ready foods in the freezer
Saturday – Hubby’s choice … as always, Friday and Saturdays normally have friends stopping in so anything goes … may lean on him for steaks from the freezer for a good meal with the Boy.
