I haven't warned my family about my plans yet. Not sure how eating at home, at the table is going to go over. We'll be starting Monday night, as I am babysitting tonight and there are parties this weekend. The kitchen needs some work, though it's slowly getting better. We have a serious problem in this house- a complete lack of really useful storage. The kitchen cupboards are all so high that I can't reach the top shelf without a stool, and at the same time, there is a good foot to 18" above them that could be used for storage if it were enclosed. There is no coat closet, nor mudroom, so everything gets dumped in the kitchen. Time to fix that, somehow. I'm open to suggestions.
First week's menu:
Monday: Chicken pot pie
Tuesday: Out at Anime
Wednesday: sloppy joes (with leftovers for hot pockets)
Thursday: Meatloaf w/mashed potatoes & Gravy
Friday: Vegetable beef Soup and sandwiches
Sunday: pork (roast or chops, depending on price) at Todd's
Bonelss skinlees chicken thighs (3# bag)
peas, carrots,onion, garlic, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, celery (enough for soup and pot pie)
flour, butter, 1/2 pt heavy cream, cheddar cheese (sharp) chicken stock/broth (canned)
Ground beef (2 lb) ground turkey (2 lb) (1/2 for sloppy joes, 1/2 for meatloaf)
2 cans Campbels Vegetable soup (ABC's&123's)
Potatoes (5# red) (1/2 for mashed, 1/2 for soup)
Rump or chuck roast , about a pound, and bones!
yeast for bread
I'll post "before and after" kitchen pictures on Sunday.
Wish me luck! (and call if you want to join us for supper any night next week- there will be plenty!)
