So today in between my hanging out time with one of my sister-in-laws, that's just what I did! This morning I cooked some chick peas that I'd soaked last night, and made these cookies. Then just a little bit ago I started some pinto beans soaking, put some brown rice in the oven to bake, and cooked up some chicken for meals this week.
I even have a menu plan:
Micah's Lunch - Leftover potato soup
Dinner - Grandma cooks
Micah's Lunch - Leftover crab linguine
Dinner - Skillet chicken & dumplings
Micah's Lunch - Leftover Skillet chicken & dumplings
Dinner - Micah's hamburger and chick pea concoction
Micah's Lunch - Leftover Micah's hamburger and chick pea concoction
Dinner - Friend's house?
Micah's Lunch - Leftovers
Dinner - Chicken Alfredo
Lunch - Leftover Spaghetti stuff
Dinner - Chili Frito Pies
We probably won't end up eating all of these things, we're kind of bad about eating out, and I'm never a good judge of how far leftovers will stretch. But, I still have makings for "Breakfast for Dinner" and also tacos. It's kind of an odd week as far as meals go because all said it only required 3 things from the grocery store! I'm trying to use our pantry (instead of organizing it - cause I'm lazy) so that I can re-stock it with ingredients, not crud.
I had a few pictures of the chick peas and cookies and such, but they were boring, and I haven't figured out how to upload from my new camera yet, so maybe next time!
