Busy week

Monday, June 17, 2013

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.

    You sound like a busy lady! Reading about all your food made me hungry. I started making a casserole dish instead of stuffing cabbage leave too. It is so much easier & faster. Enjoy you grandchildren while they are visiting.

    Yes, busy but what wonderful times your were having. It's so great to have friends and family around to share things with. Even when my daughter and her hubby come to visit, I send them back to Rochester with some "care" packages. I started teasing them about getting some of my containers back. lol

    Have fun with the grands!!!

    hugs....Mary Anne
