On Monday, I put the chili in the crockpot in the morning. When the hubby got home we decided to go strawberry picking and then do some work in the garden and go for a bike ride. By the time all that was done, we were way too hot to eat chili. So, instead we ate sliced tomatoes, cucumber and fresh fruit. Into the freezer the chili went.
On Tuesday, I found out we would be having an extra guest for dinner. I had planned to have roasted chicken breasts but changed that to grilled chicken breasts because of the heat. I also planned to cook a little extra to have enough leftover for a meal on Thursday night. I didn't have enough chicken to feed an extra and have enough for the soup so I decided to serve grilled sausage on a bun with grilled potatoes.
Wednesday the fabulous dude was at his fundraising event and then met me at our friend's daughters birthday party. I had supper with them and he joined us for cake and ice cream.
Thursday's plan was to be chicken and corn chowder. However, because of the lack of chicken from Tuesday night, I decided not to cook chicken specifically for this purpose. So, sliced veggies, fresh fruit and leftover sausage it was.
Friday we left and headed up north for my family reunion. We had dinner with my brother and SIL at their place on the way.
As you can see, the master plan got completely rearranged but that's okay, that's what life is about!
I did end up doing a lot of baking for our trip including...
and my poor lonely Banana Bread that did not get it's picture taken.
This week is very boring since I am away most of it...
Sunday - away
Monday - away
Tuesday - away
Wednesday - might still be away but if we're home we'll eat chili if it's not too hot, or else just a quick sandwich
Thursday - grilled chicken, corn, rice, salad
Friday - chicken and corn chowder**
Saturday - Leftovers and/or grilled cheese sandwiches
By the way, I have prewritten this post as I am away so if someone would please be so kind as to link me up on Organizing Junkie's Linky I would be very happy.
