Hey, hey! It’s that time of the week again … time to menu plan and meal prep!
Last week was off. WAY off! I didn’t even start a plan, let alone meal prep much of anything! Oops … and I paid the price for it a few days … one day was 2 clementines and an apple for lunch … but the good news was we did NOT go out to eat once the whole week! Trust me, I pushed and
bitched pouted, but Hubby always held firm and I had to make due! I mean, heck, we need to be conservative around here, you know??
The house hunt is still going, although that’s slowing down … and the house inquiries were really slow over the weekend, but I think the weather played a part in that so I’m not overly upset about that. I am, however, concerned that Hubby is flying out on Friday and will be gone for 10 days where he gets sketchy phone service … so he will just have to really monitor his voice mail while he’s traveling if anyone wants to view the house. It will all be fine, I’m sure 😉
So … let’s see, what else is going on? Oh, hey! Happy Spring! A few of you may have gotten a little snow (Boulder CO and NYC, I see you!) … don’t worry, before you know it, your tulips and whatever those big bouquet things are will be blooming … I promise! We’ve been hot and finally got a little rain over the weekend. Of course, cold front coming through for Monday … and then by weeks end, mid 80’s yet again. Sweet! Not so much!
Grocery shopping was a little heavy last weekend … but I did use what I bought and I’m pretty happy to say minimal food waste … SCORE!
Ok, here’s what we are looking at for the week ahead!
Sunday – Thai Style Chicken Stir Fry with Basil … I’m really craving a dish I had in October in Orlando at some little hole in the wall joint … I know this won’t be 100% fulfilling, but if it’s worth it, I’ll share the recipe! (chicken was dirt cheap on clearance at Aldi’s a few weeks ago, about $1.25 per pound for free range chicken breast!)
Monday – counting on a cold front to be happening so SOUP it is! Tomato soup in the crockpot with grilled cheese sandwiches. Trying a new soup recipe for Hubby to give a whirl! We will make a version of these sandwiches!
