Last week was a busy week and made keeping track a real challenge. I managed to keep flossing a plus for me. I also managed to clear some clutter from my house and my garage. I also prepared three real dinners-that is not the quick salad and meat/fish type we've been having of late.
Wednesday I took my little cabbages and sliced them, mixed up the filling for cabbage rolls-using brown rice, partially cooked, and layering all the ingredients in a small roasting pan. Erik and I had some of that for dinner.
Thursday my pastor was to come to dinner but about a half hour before we were to eat, his secretary called to say he had a hospital emergency and could he have a rain-check. I had made chicken paprikash with whole wheat noodles and a large tossed salad with red leaf lettuce, spinach, tomatoes and baby zucchinis. Well since we had a cancelation and Erik had set the table, I called one of my friends and asked her what was she & her DH doing for dinner. She said I guess we're having left-overs. I invited them to share our specially prepared meal and they accepted. I froze the left over Paprikash for my youngest, his wife and two year old-one less dinner for them to prepare with the new Elinore-who is adorable BTW.
Friday I went to the friend's who came to dinner Thursday night and sampled her home made soup and a Malt-O meal muffin. It has folate in it, but I haven't figured out the calories. That night one of my friends and former co-workers came to get some of my left over teaching supplies and have left over cabbage-roll casserole for supper with us. We had a lovely visit and I'm free of left overs of various types.
Saturday I went to breakfast with my eldest son, his DW, and Erik while we waited for my new tires to be put on. Then I went home mowed for 75 exhausting minutes and prepared Chicken Enchiladas and Spanish Rice to take to my youngest's house. While Erik and I were driving to his house I got a phone call from my daughter inviting Erik and me to Sunday dinner. Erik and I had a lovely time visiting with the baby and her family-pictures later. Sunday we cleaned a bit, organized a bit less and I knitted. We went to DD's and had supper and I came home with my two eldest grandchildren.
So I won't be on SP too much today. Tonight I have a wake to attend, and tomorrow a funeral if I can make it. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays I have my two eldest grandchildren and they like to do things. The swimming part is easy if the weather cooperates. The other ideas can be time consuming and expensive.
Have a great new week, I'm truly Blessed.
