After one week of getting things back to normal, I think we are there. The house is clean. The clothes are clean. Madeline is back to school. Jon had a full week of work. We have caught up with everything that could not get done in the week that we were without power. We even had a showing on our house and went to look at two possible houses for us to purchase. Life is back to normal.
I know I use my stove and oven a lot, but not having them for a week was a HUGE wake up call on how much I depend on them. This week I enjoyed every minute I was able to cook and bake (for once!)
This week's menu:
Monday- kielbasa for Jon and the kids with vegetables, leftover soup for me at work.
Tuesday- Chicken nuggets for the kids, leftovers for Jon and I (we have quite a few in the fridge right now)
Wednesday- Pasta and meatballs with green beans. I am making 3 pounds of meatballs since it is easier to make a bunch at one time and then freeze them for dinners on other nights.
Thursday- Buffalo chicken tenders, apple sauce and baby carrots
Friday- Nachos- loaded with chicken, cheese and veggies (beans too if I can sneak them past Jon)
Saturday- Homemade pizza
Sunday- dinner at my mom and dad's. We are celebrating an early Thanksgiving (Jon and I are taking the kids to visit his family for Thanksgiving this year) as well as my niece's first birthday. I am making something, not sure what until my mom lets me know!
