My goodness. My goodness. My goodness three snow days in a row when work is closed was heavenly. Due to our snow, work was closed Wednesday-Friday of last week. It was so nice to view the "storm" from the comfort of my warm, fully-stocked house. My friend sent me a text along the lines of "I was going to ask about your supplies and how you're holding up, but then I remembered who I was talking to". My food storage came in quite handy last week!
The last few days also taught me something else - just when I think I can't admire stay at home mom's any more, I get locked in the house for three days. With a toddler, And no husband. I love my son, but by the end of it, we were both climbing the walls!!
Enough about our snow "storm"...let's talk grub! Here is my meal plan for the next week. Quick reminder - lunches for Troy and myself are dinner leftovers, and Jack has a PB&J with some sides. Breakfast are generally eggs and toast for Troy and myself, or smoothies. Jack eats at my aunt's.
Monday:: quesadillas, roasted beets, and fruit
Tuesday:: reubens, (frozen) asparagus, and sweet potato fries
Wednesday:: stir fry korean steak and fried rice
Thursday:: crockpot chili, cast iron skillet cornbread, and fruit. This didn't get made last week.
Friday:: homemade chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries, and fruit
Saturday:: homemade pizza, (frozen) asparagus, and fruit
Sunday:: dinner at my parent's
This week I spent a whopping $16.50 at the local farm on raw milk and eggs. I needed 1.5 gallons of milk ($10.50) - 2 to make homemade ricotta, and 1 for drinking, yogurt, ice cream, etc. I also bought 18 eggs from their "content pastured" chickens for $6.00. Those puppies were delicious!
