Brrrrrrrr! I'm not sure if this morning was the actual first frost, or if it was just the first time I've been home in the morning when it's light out to see that there is frost, but either way, it was frosty this morning. Yeesh, run on sentence much?
With Troy gone a lot, my routine is to spend a lot of time cooking on the one weekend day that he IS home - if there is one! Troy hangs out with Jack while I'm running errands and cooking. I spend A LOT of that day in the kitchen. Perhaps too much time as I found out last week. I asked Jack if I could play with him, and he said "Poppy plays with me. YOU go cook me dinner".
Properly chastised by my toddler, I dedicated all day yesterday to ignoring the kitchen and just hanging with the kiddo. A side effect of this, is my menu. It's very very hands off for this week.
Cooking, slacking, or phoning it in, I wish you a wonderful week of eating and preparing food.
Monday:: a new chicken dish thingy that my friend Ang recommended to me. Serving it with roasted beets and fruit.
To do - take chorizo out of the freezer. Soak white beans in water.

This week I spent $40 on groceries and $7 on raw milk. That doesn't look like $47 worth of stuff to you? That's cause a few things aren't pictured. Not pictured - $10 worth of paper plates I bought, but I got a $4 giftcard for buying them which brings the bill down to $43. Also not pictured - this gem I got for $5!
When I put the costume on the conveyor belt, the cashier said "wow, guess you're all set for next year". My response? "NEXT year? This costume will be in costume rotation within the hour".
T Rexes like to eat lunch in forts. Proven fact. Look it up.
