I figured a good place to get back into posting would be the weekly menu post because, well, it's easy.
Do you have a favorite snack? I've been searching for "the" snack that would meet the sweet and little salty craving I get. I've tried peanuts, the new salted-caramel peanuts, cheetos, cookies, animal crackers . . .and nothing really met that craving. Then, I opened a box of Vanilla Wafers I bought weeks ago and guess what? They fit the bill! It's the perfect snack - count out 8 crackers/cookies and it meets whatever craving I have!!
I did not take any food prep photos this week and I should have! I cut up a whole watermelon, boiled eggs, cooked up bacon (for lunch with leftovers for salad), chopped lettuce and seperated out a huge package of chicken thighs. One night for dinner last week I put out a salad "bar" for Darryl and I that included chopped bacon, chopped ham, eggs, pickled beets, and croutons. It was awesome.
Anyway, here's our menu plan for the coming week:
Friday - A friend of mine asked what she could do for us right now so, she is bringing us dinner. She is one of the best cooks I know so I know it will be good!
Saturday - My brother, sister-in-law, and niece are tentatively coming for the evening and, if it all works outs, they are buying pizza. If it doesn't, well, we will order in anyway :-)
Sunday - I kinda have no idea right now . . . .better decide before I go to the store on Saturday!
Monday - Our church is graciously bringing us meals a few times a week and tonight is one of those nights. We are looking forward to a wonderful meal cooked by someone else!
Tuesday - This is leftover night. Generally when people supply meals, there is extra food. I do have simple things in the freezer as back up such as ham slices to go with eggs, waffles or pancakes for a quick meal if needed.
Wednesday - Sour Cream Bake - a friend brought us a meal before surgery and it was this recipe. I loved it and wanted to make it again. I'll add some rolls, green beans and salad and everyone should be happy!
Thursday - We are looking forward to another home cooked meal cooked by someone else!
