Hi, I’m feeling calmer today! I discussed the food cost increase with my husband. He agreed that we don’t need meat every day. I bought some fresh vegetables and apples today.
Tonight we had a lovely salad with mixed greens, baby spinach, carrots, broccoli, celery, and green pepper, adorned with our favorite dressings. We followed with a delicious bowl of Mushroom Barley soup. Well, I did. Everyone else had at least two bowls of the soup. See the recipe in the cooking category. You really must try it. The barley is in the cereal aisle near the oatmeal.
Tomorrow I will cook pinto beans for refried beans. Those will appear tomorrow night as burritos. Yum! Then, Friday night, Honey and I decided to have our date night at home. We’re going to shoo the children downstairs and cook together. We really enjoy that. I have a bag of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (my big splurge this week) to cook. He’s going to look for a recipe to try in
his new America’s Test Kitchen cookbook that I gave him for Christmas. The kids will eat with us; then, they’ll be shooed back downstairs while Honey and I watch a movie together.
Well, that’s what we’ve got planned. You know the old saying, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” ~smile~
Happy at Home
