I'm convinced that it's the lights.
After all, what else could it be?
Since we have a few lights to replace, our meal plan for the week has been built around what's already in the freezer and pantry, and from the coupons I so carefully clipped from the newspaper. I'll be making some beef and chicken broths this week and am going to try my hand at homemade mayonnaise, since our chickens are so happy!
With all the money I hope to save at the grocery store, we'll be able to buy a few more lights!
It's all about the justification!
Here's what's cookin' this week...
Breakfasts: Baked oatmeal, Sunshine & Sausage Casserole, 10-grain waffles (Bob's Redmill mix that has been soaked overnight), Poached eggs w/ sourdough English muffins, Peach melba smoothies (Peaches, orange juice concentrate, raspberries), Red, White & Blue muffins, Sourdough pancakes
Dinners: Hamburgers w/ oven baked fries; Reuben sandwiches w/ homemade Thousand Island dressing, Roasted Potato salad; Red Beans & Rice, cornbread; Slow-cooker Cheeseburger Soup w/ whole grain rolls; Chicken & Bean enchiladas, green salad; Venison Stew, whole wheat rolls
Superbowl Sunday: Spicy chicken wings, Artichoke dip with pita chips, veggie tray, assorted fruit, tortilla chips and salsa
Funny thing about Superbowl Sunday...we don't really care for football! [[*Gasp*]] My family and I are tried and true baseball fans...especially for our beloved and soon-to-be-back-on-top Seattle Mariners! We celebrate the biggest football game of the season for the food only.
On Sunday, we'll enjoy our chicken wings and other goodies, with our heads hung in shame.
And a big goofy grin plastered on all of our faces!
