Weekly Menu and Meal Plan ~ B-U-S-Y…..
Oh boy… crazy busy week ahead but it ends with a great time with friends – even though APPARENTLY Homecoming is NOT ABOUT ME, but for my children now! WHAT the heck, when did that happen? I LOVE going to the parade and football game then on to some party with all my old friends – BUT now the evening starts that way but somehow ends with me taking and picking up kids to the annual dance….so; I found a fun recipe for “hot caramel cider” that you can make in a crock and I shall have it ready for when all the running is done on Friday Night – so, it’s alllll gooood!!!
Lots of plans for today…. BONUS gas point deals start back up today, gotta start the “snack stash”!! I still have more apples to finish turning into something, I have made a few batches of applesauce and still want some apple pie filling. I am thankful for one more Turkey in the freezer to be made up prior to this year’s sales… Roasting it TODAY for a fabulous Roast Turkey Dinner tonight – after we get home from CRAZY practice, of course – and will have enough turkey left-overs to make all the chicken meals planned for this week (simply replacing the chicken with cubed turkey) – so smart and resourceful I am… LOL!! BTW, can someone do our laundry? I am needing blankets washed and winter loads started, BUT there just is NOT enough time and 1 load per day is just NOT cutting it!!! I sincerely STILL believe I would make out like a bandit with 2 washer/dryers! Anyhow, here’s the week:
