J and I are staying on the eating at home kick. It's been good so far. The challenge is to keep it good after I return to work. Luckily, there's another week before I start easing myself back in. I haven't been sleeping well (I am having trouble falling asleep), so I'm hoping that getting back into a schedule can help with that too.
Yesterday, we went to Walmart after other things, and I got myself a fun new magazine to play with from Taste of Home. It's all things for the freezer! We're up to enchiladas and burritos in there right now for the fall, and I've made an frozen an experiment to see what I think that will be coming up soon if it worked out. I spent a good deal of time poring over the magazine and looking for things that we might like and would work for us. I've incorporated 2 into this week's plan.
My mother is also coming this week, and we're planning a BBQ with friends for Saturday night. That amounts to extra dessert and some new recipes with people to help eat them up. Here's the plan for this week:
SaturdayDinner: BBQ with friends - Burgers, Hot Dogs, Vegetables and dip, Chips, Lemonade, Ice Cream Cones and Chocolate Ricotta Icebox Cake.Looks good! Let's see what happens.
We're going to the ballgame with my mom. We're eating the frozen experiment for breakfast with fruit salad, and I don't know what dinner will be. Lunch is a sausage from a vendor outside the Rogers Centre.
Lunch Mom is staying with us, so macaroni and cheese for lunch with leftover vegetables from Saturday night, and a dessert of some description. I don't know...cookies?
Dinner: Chicken Spinach Dip Bread Bowl (from the frozen dinner magazine), salad, and leftover Icebox Cake
Lunch: Leftover Bread Bowl.
Dinner: Steak and Potato Salad
Lunch: Frittata. I didn't make one this past week. With the other vegetables I need for this week, this will use up the odds and ends from the fridge.
Dinner: Provolone Beef Pastry Pockets. This is also from the frozen dinner magazine. They look interesting. I'm hoping J thinks they're worth it.
Lunch: Not sure...that's not a good sign.
Dinner: Grilled Sausage on a bun, salad.
DessertI've thought about Peach Cobbler, I still haven't made the Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, I'd like to make and freeze some of the Cherry Pecan Streusel Loaves, and perhaps a batch of cookies that I haven't decided on yet.
