It’s snowing out there as I write this! It was kind of an unexpected snow. I mean, we expected 1 – 2″ of snow, but that’s not anything to freak out about up here. Sometime overnight, however, the forecast changed to about 6″ of snow throughout the day and that’s a different story!
So, my whole plan changed and, instead of grocery shopping by myself while G. is in her one day a week preschool, I’m hanging with all three kiddos. Because we’re also expecting another eight inches in two days, I’m not exactly sure when I’m going to be grocery shopping. Ah, well. We’ll survive! Just don’t be surprised if this plan doesn’t go off without a hitch…
Here’s what we’ve eaten and what we’ll be eating, best as I can predict!
Breakfast– Cereal, Apple Juice (for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass)
(It was coffee & donut Sunday, so my kids had MORE apple juice, plus a half a donut each. By the time this day is done, the amount of juice consumed is staggering…)
Brunch– Family party to celebrate A’s birthday!!– Cinnamon Sugar Oven Pancake; Scrambled Eggs with Bacon; Scrambled Eggs with Melted Co-Jack, Salsa, & Avocado; Grapes; Apple Slices; Orange Juice, Apple Juice, Milk, Coffee; Chocolate Oreo Cake
D– Super Bowl food! We had chips, buffalo chicken strips (I basically used this recipe), and deep dish pizza. Other than the chips, I made it all from scratch and that saved us a BUNDLE.
B–Homemade Rolls w/ Jam, Apples, Milk
D–BBQ Ham over Rice, Green Beans (<– this should have been over egg noodles, but I don’t have any and I can’t get out! So– rice.)
B–Eggs, Toasted Beer Bread, Grapes, Orange Juice
D–Buffalo Chicken Wraps (we had leftovers!), Carrot Sticks
B–P,B,&J Sourdough English Muffins, Apples, Milk
D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (date night!) <– this is the plan, as I type this. Weather may prevent it.
B–Maple Apple Oatmeal, Milk
D–Ham & Bean Soup (I have more ham than bacon right now, so I’m make that work), Homemade Bread
B–Banana Ginger Smoothies, Toast
D–Large Ham & Mushroom Pizza and Medium TOM (tomato, onion, & mushroom– one of my faves!!!) Pizza
B–Scrambled Eggs w/ Broccoli & Cheese, Toast, OJ
L–Salads (w/ assorted veggies and proteins), Toasted Pitas
D–Crockpot Sesame Chicken over rice
So that’s the plan around here! We’ll see how it works out. I’m pretty worried about that date night situation. You know what’ll probably happen? It’ll be snowy and icy and awful out there and I’ll start craving what I ALWAYS crave when it gets nasty out. Just ask my husband. He could tell you. The moment the roads turn treacherous, for some reason, I always say, “You know what sounds so good right now? Chinese takeout.”
What are you eating this week?
