well, I figure I can eat a steak or some chicken and a side salad and then have a drink and share dessert with DH
for dinner I made baked potatoes.. I had mine with some butter and sour cream and that was it.. I skipped the cheese and bacon. I need to start a weekly menu.. that would be wonderful. I just get stuck on ideas.
Its a cold cold day here, so I am making my stew today! I am gonna slow cook it in my crock pot... hope it turns out ok!
ETA: Did you see the mini challenge this week! Thats perfect for me, lol! I have to clean out the fridge, and clean out my hall closet for the dingleberry to get here (if he is coming at all, poted that on the BB) I need to reorganize our closets AGAIN, because crap is spilling out of it... and I need to go back into DS's room becuase he has managed to destroy it yet again...lol... Im rocking this challenge!
yes.. that'll be a great mini challenge! I'm going to clean my kitchen.. deep clean. moving the fridge, stove, to clean under them. I'm going to do my floors, take out all my dishes and clean the cabinets, etc.
ETA: Joee, how are you going to make your stew? I haven't used my crock pot in a while!
Im cleaning my fridge today and stove later this week. Then i need to clean out my bathroom pantry and wash the shelves and maybe box up some of my storage stuff to send to my mums until I move
nidia I was going to link to the place where I print my menu sheets off of.. They have a nice easy format but I cant remember where I get them (I just keep one and copy it off when I need more).. But I found this:
I take stew meat and cut it up into small chunks (and cut the fat off if possible). I flour it just enough to coat it and brown evenly in a little bit of olive oil...
Need two packets beef stew mix (i dont do my own flavors, lol)
Cut up veggies of your choice (about 5 cups total)
and I add some kidney beans too...
Add the hard veggies (tater, carrots, celery, onions) and the meat to your crock pot with about 3 cups water and cook on low for about 8 hours or so... about an hour before I am ready to eat I add the remaining (corn, beans) and simmer for like another 30-45 minutes...
Cool thing is you can add or subtract just about anything you please... I really like brussel sprouts, but the boys would refuse to eat it if I put that in there..
