To Go Meals

4 "To" Go meals of roasted chicken in addition to 4 Bean soup meals
All of the yuck stuff is in the pot for chicken broth/stock I need later in the week
This looks sorta nasty, however its really good. Macaroni salad to use as a side for lunches this week. I am sorta surprised that this is the first pasta I have done all month. I really thought I would have to base a whole lot of meals around pasta to make the budget stretch. More pasta is on the way for later in the week!
I got in some sewing time this AM while hubby was in the office. I hope these simple nine batch blocks will help tone down some of the busy fabric I am putting in hubby's "Bama" quilt.

Can you hear that? It's hubby in his chair sawing logs, the other background noise is AJ the beagle who is under my quilt joining in the chorus of snoring, oh ya and the dryer doing it's thing on the last load of wash. Ahh the sweet sounds of home.

I got a few meals put back for hubby and I for later in the month done today, beef roast is ready and waiting for dinner time then it too will be headed to the "To Go" meals collection in the freezer. I figure if I do 2 meals a day I will have enough put back to send hubby on his way with a cooler full of home cooking. Maybe even a little baking will be on the list for tomorrow while he is at the office. Baking goes so much quicker if I am alone and get my rhythm going! Ha.

Do you ever have days where you feel unsettled? Today is one of those days for me, everything seems to be off just a little. Tomorrow is a new day! Ha

  3. Yes I really do not care to much for that unsettled feeling, it makes me feel uncomfortable. Can't wait to see what goodies you will be baking up a storm about with tomorrow. Holy snoring house I get that between hubby and Bandit too. Thanks for saying as you knew I would feel better in my kitchen and the spaghetti sauce helped me focus on better things. xx

  8. it's always good to have extra meals stored in the freezer.

    Those blocks remind me of racing cars for some reason?
