Hey y'all! It's a new week, and a new month! We just returned home from our Thanksgiving trip (great time was had by all), and found that none of our gas appliances (including the furnace) were working. We're still not exactly sure what the problem was, but the gas guy came out and banged on some things, and now we're back in business. However, the temperature in our house was down to 49 degrees, so it'll be a little while before it warms back up (even with the furnace and gas fireplace going). So I'm sitting here all bundled up, typing in my gloves. If you notice any weird typos, that's probably why.
So...December. Can you believe it? I need to figure out which Christmas treats we'll be making this year. And by we, I mean me. This weekend, I asked MC if there was anything in particular he wanted to do in December. You know, like family fun activities. He didn't have a whole lot of ideas, but he did say he wanted to make cookies. When I pressed him on it, he admitted that what he really wanted was for me to make the cookies, and him to eat them. So much for family fun activities. *Sigh* Good thing I love to bake.
Here's what's on the menu this week:
--Pizza casserole, green beans, salad
--Spaghetti/zucchini noodles with meat sauce, garlic bread, mixed vegetables, salad
--Fend for yourself/ramen/corn dogs, carrots
--Pizza or chicken pizza, salad
--Baked bone-in chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots
--Tacos, taco fixings, including guacamole
--Dr. Pepper Pork, rolls, mixed veggies, salad
--Greek yogurt (I have to use a new starter, 'cause I ate all my homemade yogurt last week--it was so, so yummy!)
--Peanut butter granola bars
--100% whole wheat 30 minute rolls
