What We Got Cookin’

Getting back into the swing of things around here. It’s wierd to be cooking after a week or so of McDonalds, In-N-Out Burger, and Starbucks. “Vacation” is over.

FishPapa asked, “What vacation?”


Anyway, since we have no condiments and few staples, meals will be pretty simple until I can ramp up a little on my pantry. Check out this post to see my take on California groceries as well as great feedback from readers.

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:

banana-chocolate chip muffins and fruit
eggs and toast
cinnamon rolls

Chicken nuggets, biscuits, veggies, and ranch dip
Italian sandwiches
Buttered noodles
Sauerkraut and Spareribs

Pork roast and taters
Beans and rice
Beef enchiladas
Macaroni Grill Chicken Kit (came free in the mail! Just add chicken. Will report back.)
Homemade Pizza
Chicken Soft Tacos
Bean and Meat Burritos

    Sounds great. I’d sure love that banana-choc chip muffin recipe… you know, so maybe my MIL would have a reason to like me OTHER than your berry muffins? : )

  2. JessieLeigh, thanks for making me laugh. It is on the schedule for later today — if I can get my day going!

    Fabulous! Looking forward to it.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
