So, I grabbed my chicken from the freezer and put it out to defrost, sat down with my kids, drank some iced tea, took the bread out of the oven (it is very yummy by the way :), went to the store (I needed to get some fresh hamburger to make hamburgers for dinner...hubby requested and I also needed to get milk) and used some freebie coupons and other awesomeness (I was happy with what I got I have to say...pics and what not upcoming later), got home, made dinner and crashed. It was a full day to say the least and I'm sort of counting down the hours until bedtime.
I did make a few menu plan changes for tomorrow. For one I'm going to make brown bag burritos, so that's going to add something to the list and I might make some taco meat too. I'm also going to delay in the making of the refrigerator pie and the peach pie for now as we found out that the mother of one of my husband's close friends just passed away and I want to make sure I have materials to make some pies for him and his family in this tough time (one of the manicotti is probably going out the door too). So, I'll just take store of what I have in the pantry and freezer tomorrow and see where inspiration takes me I guess *laugh*. So, here's what I got done today (it's sad I know)...
For The Freezer
Easy to Stuff Manicotti x 2 Farmhouse Chicken x 2 One Bag Onions: Minced One Bag Peppers: Sliced
- Chicken Lo Mein x 2
Refrigerator Pie x 1 (Not Made) Easy Peach Pie x 1 (Note Made)
- Freezer Mashed Potatoes x 1 (hey I have cream cheese right ;)
- Slice Up Beef Roast and Put in Teriyaki Merinade
- Slice Beef Thin for Chicken Fried Steak and French Dips later in month
- Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day recipe. Hope I can find room in my fridge for this...I bought a 6 quart rubbermaid shoebox for 1.00 at Fred Meyer just to try this out.
And so, tomorrow I will pick up where I left off to get the rest of my "list" done. The freezer mashed potatoes are going to go pretty quick, I think (since I'm only going to make one dish to try it out before I make like 17 bazillion tons of it).
