|The Hens by Robert Duncan|
It's been a pleasant day puttering in the kitchen, thrift shopping, and grocery shopping.
This morning, I did some cleaning in the kitchen, then I made a batch of homemade wheat/white bread. Four loaves and a whole bunch of rolls. I served the rolls with homemade macaroni and cheese for lunch. I'm still trying to perfect macaroni and cheese. It tasted a bit gritty. I am not sure what's causing that. I guess maybe I need to read some recipes.
This afternoon, we went thrift shopping. I found a couple of pairs of jeans for my son, Michael. Then, it was off to Aldi for groceries and then to Braums for milk and sour cream. It was hard to do, but I kept to my budget of $100.00. I'll have to use some things that I already have in my pantry to make the food stretch for the week.
Here are some of the things I plan to make this week:
Saturday ~ clam chowder, homemade bread
Sunday ~ roast, potatoes, carrots, onions, gravy
Monday ~ ham and beans and cornbread
Tuesday ~ fried chicken thighs, potatoes and gravy, corn
Wednesday ~ We eat at church on Wednesday nights.
Thursday ~ homemade pepperoni pizza
Friday ~ date night with hubby, kids- ramen noodles
Desserts I plan to make this week:
raisin bread pudding
pumpkin dump cake
May I suggest?
