It's a little crazy that it's 2014. I was reading a Buzzfeed thing the other day that was something along the lines of "20 Things that will Make You Feel Ancient", and many of them did; but the most telling was the one that announced that children born in the year 2000 are graduating out of Grade 8 this Spring. Yikes. I had been teaching a couple of years when they started school. That's crazy too.
What's not crazy is the fact that J and I are back trying to eat at home and making a classic along with a couple of new things this week.
Here's what's up for dinner this week:
Sunday: It's soup weather, and J has requested Italian Wedding soup, which I haven't made in forever. So that's what we're having. That will make lunches for this week too.
Monday: I have a parent council meeting, assuming there's school (Snowmageddon is supposed to arrive Sunday night - fingers crossed...fingers crossed) so we're grilling burgers for something easy.
Tuesday: It's been forever since I made anything from the Looneyspoons Collection so I cracked it open this weekend for meal planning. I've come up with 2 for this week. The first is Chicken Pot Pie. J says he doesn't like chicken pot pie, so we'll see what happens.
Thursday: Another Looneyspoons recipe, an Asian-inspired dinner salad with leftovers for Friday lunch.
Looks like a good week! Full steam ahead!
