25 January 2011


I got off a plane exactly 2 hours and 18 minutes ago.

Suffice it to say, I'm not at my blogging best, but... My children are in fed, teeth brushed, and in bed (and their beloved grandmother delivered them to me bathed, which means that she is the best person on the planet right now).

I have a lot to say about traveling, friendship, money, children, marriages, food, government, security (or its farse), great fiction, and a whole host of other things, but...

Right now what I need to do is make my grocery list for tomorrow. If my feet weren't throbbing so profusely, I'd hop up and take a picture of my empty refrigerator, so we could all have a good laugh. Instead, I'll insert a picture I can copy and paste...

This is what Paul looked like when he opened our refrigerator earlier tonight.

Oh well. C'est la vie. I'll Kroger and maybe even Sams it tomorrow.

And while I'm making a list, I might as well go ahead and type up my menu for the week.

Supper: Mac & Cheese (from a box! never seen five happier people), Sauteed Green Beans

Lunch: Turkey Sandwiches all around
Supper: Subway at Church. Yes, this means most of us will have two turkey sandwiches in one day. Bite me.

Lunch: Perhaps more turkey sandwiches....
Supper: Roasted Chicken, Mashed Taters, Big Green Salad, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lunch: Leftover Shicken... Do with it what you please.
Supper: Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw

Lunch: It's supposed to be beautimus! I'm hoping for an early picnic for the men folk in my life. Ada Bee and I'll be at an all-girls birthday celebration!
Supper: Grown Up Supper Night. Pulled Pork Nachos (I'm on a pulled pork nacho kick...). Mac & Cheese Soup (yep). Glazed Chicken and Pears, Fettucine Alfredo, Green Salad. Broiled Banana Splits for dessert. There may be a sorbet added to the menu. Depends on how festive I feel...

Lunch: Who knows.
Supper: We have a slew of folks coming here for book study on Sunday evening. I'm responsible for "a light supper" - I'm going to have a big ol' pot o chili and some corn bread. And then ask a couple of folks to bring rotel and dessert. It's good to have help.

Lunch: Chili Dogs for the whole crew! I shall be popular.
Supper: Bean Burritos. Clearly.

Lunch: Coveted Leftover Burritos
Supper: To My Mother's. Chicken Romano. The recipe for which I need to post. Someone remind me. It's an ol' family favorite take on Chicken Parmesan.

I'm thinking I'm going to have a new food schedule. For the last year or so, I've been on a Friday to Friday schedule, but I'm going to try a Wednesday to Wednesday schedule. Shopping and putting away groceries on Friday tends to put a damper on my weekend and mean that anything I'd like to do before the weekend - for dinner parties and such - I cannot prepare for on Thursday. So, I'm going to try another route. We'll see. I'll report.
