So, I did our grocery shopping yesterday afternoon. I did something yesterday that I've never done. I'm sure there are people who have mixed feelings on this, because honestly, I did until I decided to just do it. I got to the store and I put earphones in. I cranked up the volume on my Pandora praise and worship station and grocery shopped in peace. I usually like to use my grocery shopping time as an opportunity to be a blessing to someone else. I seek out opportunities to help someone or give someone a smile. And not that I didn't look for that yesterday, but I knew that I needed a little peace and quiet in the midst of the crazy. And it worked. I was definitely in a better mood once I got home from shopping than I was when I left!
Ok, so here's the menu for this week. Pretty simple. Aaron made lots of suggestions and I went with it!
Monday- White Chicken Chili. I made a huge batch of this chili about a month ago and froze half of it. It was so good! Aaron pulled the frozen batch out of the freezer yesterday and we're having it for dinner tonight. Yum! After I eat it tonight and can remember how I made it, I'll link it up on my recipes page.
Tuesday- Spaghetti. We had this last week and Emmy missed it. She wasn't feeling well and that manifested itself in a hour long tantrum on the living room floor and refusal to eat dinner. She was devistated when her spaghetti got thrown away. So, we'll try again. Plus, I didn't have to by any of the ingredients.
Wednesday- Eggs, Sausage, and Hashbrowns. This was Aaron's request. Not surprising, our whole family loves "Brinner" or breakfast for dinner.
Thursday- Chicken Alfredo. This was also Aaron's request. I don't actually remember the last time I fixed this dish. I'll brown up the chicken and add it to the penne and alfredo sauce. Pretty simple.
Friday- Friday is going to be a quick fix night. Aaron and I are going out on a date and so we'll fix something quick for the girls. Sandwiches or something. Aaron and I will be eating out.
Saturday- This will be pizza and a movie night. We have a local pizza place that has a XL pizza with 1 topping for $7.99. That's almost cheaper than what I can make, so we'll just order that and enjoy each other's company.
Sunday- Sunday will be leftovers (if we have any) and make room in the fridge for new groceries day. Sunday's tend to be a bit of a hodge podge as far as meals go. Our Sunday's are a little crazy so I've never really done a "Sunday dinner".
I hope that everyone had a great weekend! And I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season! Only 15 more days until Christmas!
