I’m back at work after a week off. So it’s back to the daily grind.
On Saturday, I asked the boys what they wanted to have for dinner. The Imaginative One asked for brown sugar ham and the Wee One asked for chicken noodle soup. Actually he asked for chicken nugget soup. At least that was the joke on Saturday. The Wee One loves chicken noodle soup.
Last week, I didn’t make a menu so our eating was kind of crazy. Actually it was crazy part of the week. This week I’m going to have a plan since it’s Thanksgiving week. I need to simplify my life this week.
Monday – Leftovers from Saturday’s and Sunday’s meals – either chili or cheeseburger pie – If you don’t want either of those, then you can make yourself a sandwich.
Tuesday and Wednesday – One day we are going to have pumpkin chili and the other day we are going to have pulled pork sandwiches from the freezer. We have new bbq sauce from Jungle Jim’s that Hubby wants to try.
This week I am going to use the crock pot for our dinners. I have been busy with work and have been staying later then usual. The result is we haven’t been eating homemade meals.
On Saturday morning, the Wee One and I went shopping. We got all the meat and other ingredients for the meals.
After we got home from shopping, I put the hamburger in the crock pot. While we were having family time, the hamburger was cooking. The cooked hamburger is going to be used for sloppy Joes and the soup. Then I put the stewing meat into smaller containers since I bought a family pack.
