My life has been so chaotic the past few months, almost a year now, that I had not even realized how long it had been since I posted. I will be getting back on track with that soon. Actually I am working on getting every thing cleaned up and back on track with planning and cooking and cleaning and such by September 1. That is the goal anyway.
I made Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki sauce for lunch yesterday and they were a hit. It was really cheap as well as being very quick and easy. I cheated a bit and bought the sauce already made from a vendor at the farmer's market. I am going to try and make a batch next week as it looks simple and would be much cheaper. So, total for meal $2.93 for four servings - not including the sauce - which is about .73 which is pretty darn cheap.
So far, the menu plan is still a little sketchy as I am trying to get adjusted to new schedules for everyone around here. The grand babies (am daycare for them during the week) started preschool three mornings a week now. Youngest daughter gave up her temp job and is now only working her primary job which the hours change a lot in. Next week I will post what I actually made. Tonight we are having something out of ground beef. I have it fresh but need to use it as it has been in fridge for a couple of days already. Was going to make burgers, but hubby had that for lunch - so did I but we won't tell him that. Thought about tacos, a favorite around here, but we had mexican last night. I would love to have some spaghetti, but hubby doesn't like pasta. He may just have to eat the sauce on bread - which he usually does - or just have cereal. I have some handmade pasta from the farmer's market, so may make stroganoff. Who knows.
I am hoping to get the house all cleaned up and do a little purging so I can make room an get rid of clutter. Now that we are fully in to our new hobby of cowboy action shooting, also known as SASS or Single Action Shooting Society.
I am not as bad as a hoarder on the tv shows, but getting alarmingly close. I have two storage units and once our weather cools down a bit I am hoping to get rid of at least 30% of it and go in to one unit. Would really help save some money.
Well, thanks for dropping in and hopefully will be seeing you next week. If you need some help with planning meals, check out all the great cooks linked up to Meal Plan Monday each week.
