Another week has flown by, and I am happy to report that our "eating from the pantry and freezer" project went really well this past week. I cooked all the brown rice I had stockpiled in the freezer, we made the pepper steak and the tilapia meals, and instead of making steak at home, we treated ourselves to what will probably be our last "fancy steakhouse" dinner for a while! We had a $20 off coupon (which, since I can't drink at the moment, made for a reasonably cheap date!) and it just sounded yummy on a rainy Friday night.
Yesterday we spent running around trying to get a few more "baby related" items accomplished. We did succeed in finalizing our gift registries (at least for the moment LOL!) and ordered our nursery furniture, which I am super excited about (if only it wasn't on backorder, that would be a bonus!) We also found a 40% off deal for the window treatments we need in our bedroom, so now if we can just settle on fabrics and styles in the next couple weeks, we can get those ordered (and satisfy our need to get a "deal" LOL!). I'm loving the after-holiday deals!
I saw my dr. Friday for our 30 week checkup. All is well with baby and, as of today, we're into single digit weeks on the countdown!! Wahoo!!! We are so excited and can't wait to meet our little guy! Now, we just have to settle on a NAME.
Meanwhile, the pantry menu plan continues for week 2 of this month, as follows:
Saturday: Salmon Patties, Corn, Wilted Spinach
Sunday: White Chicken Chili, Broccoli, Cornbread
Tuesday: Hamburger Mac and Cheese Toss, Salad
Wednesday: Apricot Pork Chops, Sweet Potato Fries, Kale
Thursday: Chili, Cheese Muffins, Spinach
Friday: Leftovers for hubby; I'll probably be out with girlfriends!!
Everyone stay warm! It's going to be a freezing cold week even here in GA!
Minted Makes It Easy - Little Miss had her First Communion two weeks ago. As the good mom I am, I have her write out her own (thorough) thank you cards for each gift she receive...
