Its been a long week around here. My grandma passed away last Sunday so I was out of town most of the week. Her death was expected but its still hard and sad to deal with.
You would not believe the amount of food we had. I don’t even know where it all came from! Friends of the family and the church brought a lot of it but in the end there were many dishes we didn’t even know who had brought! Makes it hard to write the thank you notes, so note to self: always provide name on dishes given in these type of events!
We had so much food, I was able to take back some to freeze. My favorite – beef and noodles along with lasagna and a few other items. I divided them up into single serve containers so I can take them out for a quick meal.
My dad also gave me sweet corn and green beans so I had that to prepare this week too! I have some peaches and blackberries from the farmers market which I will try to sneak in this week. (I know its a lot of food for one person!!)
I spent a good part of this weekend chopping tomatoes to freeze (you can read about it here) and picked up Angelfood this week so my freezer, pantry, shelves are STOCKED!!! Its a nice feeling. Oh and one more thing, I cut out Mt. Dew this week too! AGH!!! I just need to stop drinking it, its not good for me and actually I feel a bit better with out it.
I also made this awesome Blueberry/Zucchini bread which I HIGHLY recommend, it was the best!
My menu this week is going to be a hodgepodge of items.
Stuffed green peppers
Hamburgers with sweet corn
soft shell tacos
Tomato/Basil/ Mozzarella sandwiches
Spaghetti with meatsauce and garlic bread
This week isn’t a real creative week but I’m kinda just in the mood for some of my favorites (which is always mexican!!!)
Hope everyone has a great week and don’t forget to check out orgjunkie.com for more organizing tips!
