So it's 2 weeks today from Thanksgiving. I cannot believe it. Mom gave me the menu last night...my orders were to bring...mashed potatoes...corn casserole...Coconut Creme Cake...and an appetizer. So I will be cooking the day before....at least on the cake. We are having a carpets cleaned the day before Thanksgiving as well.
I do love this time of year. Miller turns 3 right after Thanksgiving. We have gotten him a Big Boy Bed....I have been looking for bedding for him. His room is done in Safari Animals....I have found some things but nothing great yet. So if you know of something that I don't know about it...let me know.
Miller and I have some things to do today. We need to run to Kohls and then grocery shop. The dreaded grocery shopping. My two times a month thing. By the time I leave I'm drained and seeing things....no really...I normaly nap that day.
We are watching our budget as it is that time of year. I scale the cabinets and look for meals before menu planning.
A few meals I came up with are....chicken pot pie, homemade pizza....breakfast...tuna casserole...now for the meals i need to buy for....roast and potatoes...sausage bean soup....hashbrown bake....spaghetti...chicken and dressing....taco casserole....the rest of the nights are either leftovers or frozen pizza...or eating out...thats it for dinners for us for 2 weeks...how did I do? I dont freeze many meals as I never have much luck with this. I enjoy cooking though. Although I'm including cleaning supplies, medicine, cards, trash bags in the mix....hopefully I can do it all under $200....fingers crossed.
I'll keep you posted....talk to you soon.
