There will LOTS of "To Go" meals this last week of the Food Stamp Challenge. Yesterday's lunch was "To Go" Beef and Noodles. So very simple. Leftover roast beef with a jar of beef gravy warmed up then pour over store bought noodles. I guess you could call it poor mans Beef Stroganoff.
SOOOO excited today as I have a late lunch date with two buddies I haven't seen in YEARS!! Our hubby's use to work together way back when. I am thinking we meet 24 years ago at a project in Midland, MI. We had lots more adventures over the years as our hubby's jobs moved us from one place to another all over the country. We all eventually settled down in the Charlotte NC area where the home office was located back then at the time our kiddo's were entering High School. Moving High School students to different schools around the country is NOT a good idea!! One of the ladies moved to Greenville, SC when the main office was moved way back when, she lost her Husband of 40 years this past summer :(. The other friend's hubby followed the path of so many in the traveling business and found himself a new girlfriend 1/2 his age with no thought of what it would do to their family :( TURD!!! While we have stayed in touch through letters and phone calls we haven't been able to meet up in person in so very long. Way back when we had weekly get togethers with the whole gang for craft days in addition to a monthly luncheon, of course lots of cookouts and game night with our families as we were all in the same boat. Far from our homes and families. I hit one of the gift drawers this morning for a small surprise to share with them both. The next best thing to "To Go" meals is having a stash of handmade gifts!!
