Where does the time go? The Watchtower study article we had about staying busy is no joke. Someone asked me the date the other day and I said October 30th. They stared in disbelief and said it's at least November 11th...I apparently lost 2 weeks of my life.
Even when our lives are busy, I still try to have a meal plan. If not, we just eat out way. too. much. End of story.
My poor little Boo Boo was so sick last Thursday. While others were enjoying their turkey dinner, we were cleaning puke off the kitchen floor and diarrhea squirts from underwear. Maybe a little too much information, but this is my life. Welcome to it. Friday was spent watching movies, sipping pedialyte from a spoon every 15 minutes.
While he was sick, I found a couple of yummy recipes on pinterest. Some of them are conducive for leftovers, but we never seem to have any of those anymore. It's been over a year since Wooley moved in with us permanently and I'm still trying to figure out leftovers. We just don't have any with a teenager in the house. They eat a lot! He had a friend spend the night last week and we cooked 2 pounds of pasta for spaghetti supper. I honestly had one small serving leftover for the fridge. What is it with growing teenage boys?!?!
Winter time means a new plan.
Monday: Chicken Breast dinner
Tuesday: Pasta Night
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner
Thursday: Taco Night
Friday: Pizza Night
Saturday: Chinese Night
Sunday: Soup Night
So with this plan, I'll be looking for sales on pasta, meat, cheese and beans. This will help me choose recipes each week too. This will probably change, especially if I find a yummy recipe, or I find a great deal on meat. But at least there's a plan in place. That's a start.
Have a great month!
