Hey there, friends.
I made two of the four recipes I planned for last week's menu. Not the best start to a new year of menu planning, but decent enough. We made The Great White Chili and the Creamy Mushroom and Potato Soup, but didn't make the other two so I'll move them over to this week. Recycle them recipes. I have all of the ingredients already for the Chicken Pot Pie topped with Mashed Potatoes so we'll have that tonight, maybe. Don't hold it against me if not, because PJ will have to cook the whole meal while I'm at school! Yes, my first class is this evening! So if he feels up to it, he'll make this chicken pot pie (and I'll love him dearly for cooking), or I'll just pick up something for us on my way home. We'll see how that goes.
Monday 1/9/12: Chicken Pot Pie topped with Mashed Potatoes (shepherd's pie)
Tuesday 1/10/12: Chili Cornbread Bake
Wednesday 1/11/12: pick something up, class at 7 PM
Thursday 1/12/12: 4 Minute Spicy Garlic Shrimp
Friday 1/13/12: Oven Baked Frito Pie
Saturday 1/14/12: out to eat
Sunday 1/15/12: Crock Pot Chicken with Black Beans and Cream Cheese
I'm trying not to be too intimidated about starting school today... I'm a mix of excited and nervous. I'm trying to tell myself that it's going to be more exciting than anything else. Plus, it's only the first day so at least we'll start out today with introductions and going over the syllabus and such.
It's gonna be a long day... Wish me luck :)
(Oh, and can I just say that I'm shocked and thrilled that the Steelers lost their first playoff game! My Bengals lost to Houston, unfortunately, but having the Steelers lose kind of makes up for it. Sorry Pittsburgh fans, you understand the rivalry!)
Peace, and bacon grease!
