Well, we've all had mild colds here, one right after the other. Today it seems it's my turn. Stuffy head. Swollen face. Lovely.
Oh, and did I fail to mention here that on Friday evening my youngest banged heads (they were goofing off) with her sister and CHIPPED HER TWO FRONT TEETH. So in reality I was "sick" starting Friday night. She has a dentist appt. in just a little while.
My youngest has a Christmas play tomorrow morning, then a party. We're in charge of the cookies. The two youngest have a party on Wednesday and we must get gifts (and make more cookies). And then my middle daughter is in a play on Thursday night. We, of course, have our usual homeschool/co-op stuff this week. And Bible Study on Wednesday. Oh, and it's girlscouts tonight. Of course. My head is spinning.
Anyway, food. Yeah.
What I'm working with:
Again this week I have no leftovers. We didn't cookout yesterday because it was raining and 2 of the five of us were sniffly. I do have huge bags of organic root vegetables from Sam*s. Oh and literally pounds of roll-out cookie dough that I made up yesterday. Wonder if I could serve cookie dough and milk for supper one night? Hmmm... Better not.
On to the menu. Prices are rounded to the nearest 25¢. The total price of food is counted on the day that it is cooked. Leftovers are counted as $0. On any day that no vegetable is mentioned there is a raw vegetable platter served and $2 is added to the menu cost for that day for the cost of the vegetables with dressing. There are always homemade rolls. They cost me less than 35¢ to make and last for several days.
Monday - Chicken stirfry with root vegetables, brown rice $5.50
Tuesday - Leftover stirfry in burritos, salad $3.50
Wednesday - Bible Study. The "theme" is Beans and Greens (you did know we're in the South, right?). I'm bringing an incredible white bean and smoked ham soup. And some homemade rolls. $5.50
Thursday - Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and leftover beans. $11.50
Friday - Meatloaf sandwiches, vegetable platter $2.50
Total for the work week - $28.50
