We had a fairly nice weekend. I got overly emotional, *shocker* I know, on Saturday after spending another hour on the phone with our mortgage company. What a mess it has become. I was told to call back in a week and I would have an answer. I'm not holding my breath.
I won a few bets yesterday so I'll be having some guest bloggers to delight you with in the next few weeks.
More on that to come later. I have to figure out how to set the whole thing up first!
Last weeks menu was delicious and all the meals went over nicely with the boys. So, kudos to me and Darren.
Darren made the pasta and prepared the chicken on the weekend since I work.
We had a little trouble yesterday with the huge chicken I selected for the Slow Cooker Whole Chicken but right when we were about to give up (it was going on 6pm) the little temperature thingy popped UP! YUM!! So good.
To quote Darren, "This chicken is so succulent!"
Disappointingly so I am not nearly as organized as I begin this new week. A few things (mainly PMS and it's aftermath) threw me through a loop.
But such is life. I'll get over it. Life ain't gonna wait for me.
So, here's my weekly menu:
Monday: Fish Sticks and French Fries
Tuesday: Slow cooker Sloppy Joes
Wednesday: Sweet and Sour Sausage over White Rice
Thursday: Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Saturday: Stuffed Peppers (our Valentines Day ritual, yes I know it's not Valentines Day till Sunday but we're having our niece and nephew over and sharing the yumminess with them.
Yep. I am aware that Friday and Sunday are blank. Sunday is Valentines Day and Darren and I have no real idea what we're doing. That's kind of a sad thing but at the same time we're not really Valentines Day type of people. We have an anniversary for that and that's exactly 1 month away. We almost got married on February 8th, 2003 but thought we'd enjoy the weather better if we waited. I'm glad we did.
Friday might be a YOYO night.

I don't always have everything figured out. Sometimes that bothers me but today I'm giving myself a pass.
