Hey hey … it’s Monday and I’m a day late 😉
That little flu bug made his appearance this past week … was feeling off for a few days and then bam! 2am Friday morning he decided to make his announcement! Wholly crap did I feel bad. Poor Hubby … he was a little besides himself wanting to do something to make me feel better yet he really wanted me to help him with a few projects around the house. Uhm, hello, it’s Friday and I called in sick which I rarely do! So my 3 day weekend moved in to a 4 day weekend, although none of it was fun at all but I did do some little things around the house (decluttered, cleaned, laundry, and so on) … I’m just glad it’s Monday night and fingers crossed that the fever broke this afternoon during my emotional breakdown 😉 Yes, a tear or two was shed and I just felt horrible for about 45 minutes … all better now 😉
Not a whole lot of grocery shopping this past week (well, today, Monday was a whole different story, but that’s on next week) … Hubby went and picked up a few things and spent maybe $25 or so? The pantry is showing gaps and the freezers are way more manageable! I’m actually excited about the prospect of organized freezers! Crazy, I know!
I had picked up some cauliflower and green beans earlier Monday so I riced my own cauliflower and have determined that it’s worth the extra few cents to buy is already done due to the mess 😉 I made up 3 lunches for the week: 1 with pulled pork, cauliflower rice and green beans and 2 with thai beef (found in the freezer, wholefoods) and cauliflower rice and green beans.
So … here’s what we are looking to have this week!
Sunday – burgers (freezer) with grilled red onions and the rest of the french fries from the freezer. It was windy as heck so I pulled out the Cuisinart griddle/panini press and used that. Been a while and it was good to use it as I’m in the mode where I’m donating stuff like crazy to Goodwill! I think I’ll keep the press 😉
Monday – this chicken breast/pepperoni/pizza sauce and cheese dish … uhm, yummm … will so share that this week! All from the freezer and pantry!
Tuesday – Taco Tuesday … beef in freezer, balance of stuff in fridge and pantry
Wednesday – Thai Pork Bowls … basically the same as this recipe 😉 The pork is from Costco and was in the freezer, I had pulled it out late last week and it stayed frozen for a few days so we need to eat it up. I’ve got cabbage/coleslaw mix in the fridge but need to buy more/new
Thursday – leftovers and/or grilled cheese and soup
Friday – Chicken thighs most likely 😉 with roasted broccoli … thighs in freezer, broccoli was picked up on Monday
Saturday – Hubby’s choice and I’m totally leaving it up to him 😉
