We had a couple of crazy, drama-filled days the middle of this week, so fell off track; I  don't remember what we did Monday or Tuesday, except that Monday was home and I'm pretty sure Tuesday was out.  Weds. we got subs.

 

Thursday: Italian sausage bread/salad

Today: ?? but it will be at home...made two soups (broccoli & squash) so far today, so maybe those with more sausage bread...or regular bread, if I get around to it.  We have planty of leftovers, we'll figure something out.

 

Don't have the weekend planned at all right now.  Lots of post-baby meals in the freezer - we won't be surprised if we meet him this weekend - so that may become the plan!  Otherwise, I expect we'll do simple meals - pasta/sauce, soup/grilled cheese, egg scrambles, even just cheese & crackers & raw veg, depending what we feel like.

12-11 fried chicken from the deli for lunch and ham, salad, and homemade buns for super

12-12 quiche for lunch and burgers for supper

12-13 leftover ham, mashed potatos and brussel sprouts

12-14 DH had prime rib (a business dinner) DS2 had chicken and DS1 and I had other leftovers

12-15 DH and the boys had rice, corn, and leftover prime rib.  He had enough in his doggy bag to feed all three of them after he made some sides--I ran errand and skipped supper

12-16 ?? at home

12-17 boys and I went out-- DH was out of town

12-18 ham and vegges

12-18 salad and scalloped potatos and ham (ham loving DS1 said he's tired of ham. I think the rest is going in the freezer)

12-19 DK

 

Honestly, I think my lack of resturant choices in my current location drives me to eat at home plentywinky.gif.  I think I need more of a menu planning thread so we don't keep it inspired and unboring while using up what's in the pantry.

Have to admit I haven't done the best this month...holiday times always seem to through me for a loop!

 

Did do homemade Pad Thai yesterday and dinner is already in the crock pot for today (vegetable barley stew). Button and I are flying out to visit family for Christmas tomorrow...so will just have to hope there's enough leftovers for hubby while I'm away :)  (He's also kind of spoiled...he can go to his parents any time).

 

Hoping to see this continue into the New Year...if I don't get back before then hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
