What a week and fun weekend to cap it all off! I guess there was some sort of game on today? I kid! Our small group from church got together at our dear friend’s home to watch the game and commercials and gorge on wonderful food…you know the All American past time! Destiny is a wonderful cook and gracious hostess and they never fail to truly provide a lovely time.
I have a pretty busy week ahead of me- so its lucky that I have a meal plan and quite a bit of prep done for this week already–that’s right I moved my grocery shopping day and am already done! Read all about this shift and how I think it will help me become a more God honoring wife and mom here. I will be getting together with a girlfriend Monday afternoon to put some of these meals together as a team which should make the task that much more enjoyable
Reviews from last week: The BBQ chicken was decent=- nothing to write home about…a basic tangy bbq chicken done in the slow cooker so it was very little work—I did notice the left overs lingered untouched all week and will prob go to the dog, thats not a testament to this recipe..just our general blah feeling about bbq chicken. The salsbury steaks were TERRIFIC! I had never made them before, I used ground turkey and I even had success in thickening the gravy–this will most definitely be getting added in as a once a monther in our house! The beans got moved to this week and we did a smorgasbord of leftovers and freezer goodies like pizza rolls- I had forgotten to soak my beans the night before AND forgot to start them the morning of even with my handy reminders here on the meal plan…SIGH. The loaded baked potato soup was also a HUGE hit..Jason and I devoured the ENTIRE pot just the 2 of us in the same day *blush* We also really enjoyed the ham and cheese sliders–they were tangy and were just as good cold from the fridge for dinner later that same day as they were hot from the oven (in fact I may have liked them better cold) Had lots of compliments about
the heart attack pills bacon wrapped smokies and I actually liked the homemade pizza hummus even though my blender sucks and I couldn’t get it very smooth. All in all a pretty decent week as far as hits and misses!
