Still sick but now so is the others

in the house. Opened up the house and aired it out AFTER I turned off the furnace for awhile. I hope it blew out some of the germs. I should have stock in Kleenex.

We got pizza out the other day , spent $20.00 and it has already been used in 4 meals and another is in the freezer from it. I feel that's not bad as I added salad etc as sides with it.

I reworked the menu to put in what was not ate last month.

Tonight it roasted turkey, mainly because I needed the freezer room for left overs or what is now plan overs for when I am in the gardens next month and April.Sour cream and chive potatoes and a couple other veggies along with pickles, pickled hot cauliflower and beets.

Tuesday Fat Tuesday...pancakes for bfast of course  HA HA and Jambalaya for dinner. No King cake, we don't care for it that much but I might add some snicker doodle cookies from the freezer.

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday but it's also our anniversary so it's prime rib roast,CA blend veggies and baked sweet potato as that is Hubby's favorite. Brownies as I have a craving for them...might add mini choc chips.

Thursday is Chinese New Year....egg rolls, potstickers, fried rice, There is a frozen chicken dish and a frozen beef dish to be reheated.

Friday we will be driving Pat to his Dad's so we thought we would swing by the restaurant that we were given a $25 gift card to and use it. I will see if I can find any coupons for there also.

Have a blessed week

Feb. 2. 2015

The ground hog saw his shadow...probably wondering why the humans don't understand it's 6 weeks to spring by the calendar so why are they poking him and waking him up to tell them something they should be able to read for their selves.

I got sick and found out that Hubby will reheat leftovers but that is about all he is going to do.SO the eating from the pantry went by the way side big time because it took almost 3 weeks for me to get well enough to not worry about passing my germs with the food I served.

BUT while down, I decided on this year's gardens. I have decide to try to do a 4 season garden. We miss our green veggies during the winter and they cost an arm and leg and then half the time because I have to buy a "big" container, I end up tossing part of it out before we get it ate. We just don't eat the same greens every day. I don't have that problem in the spring through fall as I only cut what I need. SO 4 seasons...that means extra seeds to buy...different varieties as we already know we get bored of the same thing. I don't grow the same green veggies in the fall that I grow in the spring.

I have placed the last of my seed orders(maybe HA HA) and in April (April 17th to be exact) the Produce auction will start for plants.

Meantime, it's organize organize organize and plan those garden plots.

Still recovering....slow and steady, a bit better daily, exhaustion is down to beyond tired  HA HA (NOT really funny).

Be safe, be healthy, live well.
