It Was Crazy ....


...in my life last week!  Thing happened to way-lay my meal plan - some were good, some not so much.  I lost water one day (not do to the cold, but due to a faulty electrical something-or-another in my control box for my pump) and I lost power to half the house another day, again due to electrical issues.

The other good stuff had to do with Pillsbury and as soon as it is available I'll share.  Trust me, it is super cool!  This week we are again filled with much holiday merriment and activities.

Monday - I'm trying to "perfect" my chicken noodle soup recipe. The chickies are willing recipients of all the trying.  :)

Tuesday - This Slower Cooker Cranberry Roast looks interesting.  I would think that cranberries would go better with a pork roast and some of the reviews even suggest that, but I'm going to try it as written with a chuck roast.

Wednesday - We might be going out and about Wednesday depending on the weather.  So, we will have leftovers.

Thursday - We have been invited to a Mother-Daughter Christmas party.  I'm sure it will be tons of fun and KK is very excited.  In addition, today is SS's Christmas concert at school.  She will be full of Christmas cheer and song.  I love it!

Friday - KK has declared (very publicly in fact) that this Simple Hamburger Stroganoff is her favorite thing I make.  I can't believe it dethroned the ever-popular shake n' bake pork chops!! 

Saturday - I want to give this Creamy Chicken Lasagna a try.  It seems pretty basic, I'll use my marinara instead of jarred sauce.

Sunday - I'm still want a terrific meatloaf.  Tasty, slice-able, the kind that melts in your mouth.  I thought this Boston Market Copycat looked pretty good.

Here is hoping this week is calmer for you Susie! I think you would be proud to know that I have been meal planning now for the last 3 weeks and its all because of you!

P.S. The Brown Sugar Meatloaf on AR was nice and slice able! Was really yummy as sandwiches for a couple days after!
