What's cooking?

What's happening in your kitchens ladies?

Sunday: the kid and I had Trader Joe's fettuccine alfredo with peas.  H had some other TJs deliciousness.

Monday: Potato Leek soup in the crock pot.  I have a feeling I will end up eating something else haha.  A bbq chicken Panini.

Tuesday: Breaded chicken cutlets, roasted asparagus and TJ's boxed mashed potatoes. I'm not one for instant, but we tried a sample in store and it was delicious.

Wednesday: Our anniversary.  We will celebrate in style with pizza.

Thursday: crockpot basil pesto chicken/turkey sausage and peppers

Friday: H has poker so I think some sort of leftovers for the kid and I

Last weekend we made a trip to a couple of apple orchards and I had to let H go pick apples while I stayed in the car with a napping kid.  He came back with, no joke, 32 lbs of apples.  I've been making applesauce left and right, which my kid inhales.  I also made a Jewish apple cake this past Saturday for company.  I love apples lol

  • Thanks, Jess!  This reminded me that I made a loaded baked potato soup in the crockpot earlier this year.  I will have to try this one and compare!

  • UGH I am seriously doing so poorly with this meal stuff.  Last week, between my boss ordering out and sharing with me and just running around, I ate out more than in.  My waist line is super not cute at the moment for it, and I feel icky.

    Last night we used a coupon and went out to eat- decided to do that since DH is so rarely home for dinner at a 'normal' time.

    Tonight I want to do tilapia and baked potatoes and a veggie- but we got a request for a house showing for tomorrow, so now I'm wondering if it's a good idea to make the house smell like fish...

    I got nothing else planned the rest of the week.  I have to do some food shopping too- we're out of chicken, which is the one thing DH can have that's meaty.

  • Sunday: I made a pot roast for the first time; I think I cooked it a little too long, but it turned out OK. 

    Monday: ground beef and sweet potato hash.

    Tuesday: Curried butternut squash and kale soup.  Oh, it was incredible! 

    Weds: I'm attempting to make short ribs in the crockpot with this recipe.

    Thu: dinner meeting

    Fri: grab something on our way to a show in Sellersville.
