Happy Monday!

March 25th, 2013 at 06:38 am

I found a quarter yesterday -- right outside the basement door, so someone lost their laundry money.

I'm thinking about meals for the week ahead. I don't have an actual meal plan, since I'm not feeding a family, but I like to have a roster of possibilities in my head.

First, I have a leftover casserole to finish -- bean/tomato/bacon mixture topped with cornbread.

I have Italian sausage to cook, which I will serve with sauerkraut (cooked with apple, bacon, and brown sugar).

The leftover Italian sausage can also be served in rolls with spicy mustard.

I have leftover broccoli and two small blocks of cheese -- good makings for broccoli cheddar soup.

I have leftover macaroni & cheese -- good for a lunch.

I have a can of tuna for tuna salad sandwiches.

Plenty of eggs, for omelets or egg salad.

There are uncooked chicken breasts in the freezer -- I have not made a plan for them yet.

And there are ample lunches in the freezer, made from leftovers, already pre-packed and ready to go.

Today I did not pack a lunch, thinking I was going out for a good-bye party for a departing co-worker. Now that I look more closely at my calendar, I see that the party is actually at a bar at 4:00. Darn. I think the cafeteria is closed, too. It is Spring Break.

Speaking of Spring Break, I just looked out my window to see big flakes hurling down. We missed the big snow in the Chicago area, but apparently we aren't going to miss it completely.

Forgot to mention -- I finally earned enough Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon card. First time this year!
