I am so happy to be able to sit down and work on this after the crazy weekend. My sister in law lives in the next building over from the one that burned yesterday. She was inside her apartment and had no idea what was happening outside. The closer we got to her building the more smoke we saw and started to get really, really scared. Over 50 people lost their homes in the fire but thankfully everyone made it out safely.
I started to feel really crummy on Saturday and since no one in my house has had so much as a sniffle lately, I swore it was allergies. I am sticking to that but in the back of my mind am conceding a bit and trying to be extra careful not to pass my germs on. The freezer cooking from a few weeks back will really help since I won’t be coughing and sneezing all over every one’s food! We are meeting about this house we are in today at 4. If you don’t hear anything from me for a few days it will be because things went badly and I am in jail or we are in the process of moving. It will be good to finally make the decision.
Monday-Spaghetti & Veggies, plus a little fridge clean out
Tuesday-Jambalaya with rice left over from the weekend-This came from my Once A Month Cooking Book but since I have never been known to follow a recipe (Could that be why I have so many disasters?) I can’t look back to tell you what I put in it. I think it was leftover Italian sausage, ham deli meat, onions, peppers and Cajun seasoning. I don’t know what to call it other than Jambalaya but my husband says I can’t call it that because there is no seafood in it. Guess it will be a surprise!
Wednesday- Turkey Meatloaf (from freezer), potatoes, veggies
Thursday- Beef Stroganoff over noodles- I’ll be using the steaks I got at Target marked down and a package of sauce mix so we might be ok.
Friday-Girl Scout Meeting-snack on the run and leftovers when we get home
Saturday-Grilled Cheese and soup- but not for me because I have a Girl’s Night Out to go to! I am so excited, I haven’t done anything like this in so many years.
Sunday- I have a Farmers Casserole (from Once A Month Cooking) in the freezer that we will either have for breakfast or dinner. That leaves me with nothing else left in the freezer cooking bank so I’ll have to plan another day soon. Any suggestions? Special requests?
Farmers Casserole is basically a dish with frozen hash browns on the bottom, 4 eggs beaten with 1 can condensed milk, ham, bacon or sausage (depends on what I have), topped with cheese. You can get spicy and add onions, peppers or chili’s but my kids won’t eat it if I do that. I started making it after buying a 10 lb bag of hash-browns at Sam’s ($6), I used the free condensed milk I got last year and the free ham lunch-meat I had in the freezer so it was really cheap to make and everyone liked it so it was a win-win.
