I’m not sure where last week flew too. Since I’m a solo mom in effect right now it seems like there’s never a free minute to get online.
Last week I was pretty busy spring cleaning. Dusting pictures, backs of tvs, and more… steam cleaning carpets is my least favorite thing to do but a great relief when it’s done. I think our steamer is outdated which makes it that much harder to do.
We all missed an entire day! how you ask? well, we’re all so tired since springing forward last week that we were late Monday for everything and then we woke up 930 (!!!) on Thursday making it unworth it to even bother so we stayed home and bummed around.
I’m determined this week is going to be better! My goal is to eat all our meals at home this week, so here’s our tentative menu:
- Monday: slow cooker roast beef with onion/tomato base with white rice and steamed veggies
- Tuesday: St. Patrick’s Day brisket with potatos and carrots
- Wednesday: carbs lovers, spaghetti w/butter and salad
- Thursday: mashed cauliflower (I add a tiny amount of instant mashed potato flakes and cheezes) with leftover meat or split chicken
- Friday: ???
The biggest expense at the grocery for us right now are French baguettes. They’re $3 each and we go through one in a sitting, if only I could find a good baguette recipe — that would save me a fortune!
