It's a new month and a new year. I just love it! I'm ready to get back to routine now that the holidays and traveling are over for now ... I don't see anything spetaular non the calendar this week, besides getting caught up at work so I should have a little more time in the kitchen ...
As I'm trying STILL to clean out the freezers and pantry, I am going to attempt to do a sort of / kind of attempt at a freezer/pantry challenge. Seems to have been the story for the past 4 months or so, huh? :) The only thing I really need is milk, bread and some salad stuff to get me through the week. 20 bucks or so should do it ... (ok, REALLY, I typed this up on Saturday and ran to Aldis on Sunday and spent $95 freakin dollars ... granted, $30+ was for a really cool cast iron 5qt dutch oven but still...)
Monday - pasta with pull apart garlic bread and salad (or I may just do this french bread for easier night!)
Tuesday - shrimp packets with salad (will eliminate the shrooms and use white wine instead of mirin-for the life of me, can't find MY recipe)
Wednesday - quisidiallas and black bean soup (so looking forward to using the new immersion blender my MIL gave me!)
Thursday - hot dogs (not sure if I want to do chili cheese dogs or chicago style) and oven fries
Friday - chicken on the grill with salad
Saturday - leaving up to Hubby but probably pork chops and these taters (I will highly recommend it!)
Sunday - homemade pizza using Life As Mom recipe (I've got all the fixins in the freezer to go along with it!)
