I'm trying to get the freezers cleared out and it's just not happening very well. Sure, we took out 4 packages of beef (sirloin steak, a roast, a few other odds and ends to make Italian Beef and then a roast) but still ... lots of stuff is just crammed in all 3 of the freezers.
I know, I shouldn't be complaining ... and I'm not, not really. I just wish it was easier to deal with, to be able to tell Hubby when I'm on the road, which freezer has the roast (and PLEASE, don't use the skirt steaks!!) ... I can only say it's in the garage, no, the guest kitchen, or it might be in the main kitchen. Seriously. He didn't have to call me for THAT :-)
I stopped at Publix TWICE This week ... $30 first stop and $50 the last stop. That one included the Sweetwater 420 6 pack and the 12 pk of Corona ... and we still need milk, AGAIN.
So here's what we got planned for the first week of July ... just going to try and use what we have and fill in as needed ...
Sunday - pasta for the kids with jarred sauce, leftover italian beef for Hubby and I just plugged along, grazing on this and that. I'm still just shocked the kids prefer jarred sauce over the homemade stuff.
Monday - Crockpot recipe to try, Cashew Chicken ... will toss in some broccoli and a few other things to make it more substantial.
Tuesday - Tacos with all the fixins...I will, of course, have a taco salad
Wednesday - Ranch Chicken Salad ... I have wanted to make this for YEARS, seriously ... maybe this is the time!

Thursday - AT LAST ... I now know what the plan is! We are going to a friends to watch all the beach fireworks across the lake where she lives ... I'm so stinkin happy that Hubby said YES! We normally stay here and do a little walk over to the beach ... this year, at long last, we will go to someone else's house! I will make appetizers, probably a layered bean dip and salad of sorts
Friday - I'm off and hoping that I can really relax ... I need an extra day in the week to get some serious stuff done, like the freezers!! Thinking of Chicken Parmesan and maybe a caprese salad (tomatoes and mozzarella are on hand)
Saturday - Pool party and BBQ? If so, hot dogs, chicken sausage, baked beans, corn on the cob, cabbage salad, and whatever else pops up! Hubby told me that IF we do this, the only thing I can buy is buns and chips and such ... um, ok Honey.
I really want to eat better this week, meaning NO GRAINS. My hands have been bothering me and I've started to get some other, NEW joint pains kicking in so that makes me a little worried. My toe joints are giving me issues and that is NOT a good thing.
