Since we are going to be out anyways in the snow yuck, Hubby figured we do the major shopping for Jan. Then he can always do a pit stop when getting fuel or I can after appts for milk etc.
Tomorrow we are going to go visit Sister of my heart ( if her weather is decent as where she is to gets worse than us) and then doctor appt for this chronic fatigue, rapid pulse for no reason, headache, nose bleed, pain in my butt thing going on.
My mistake was asking Hubby to give me about 15 meals he would like to have this coming month. About 6 of them I have everything except cilantro, lime and avocado (and not it'a not all Mexican). Only 3 did I need meat and that is because I do not keep ground pork and ground poultry in the freezers, they are very seldom on sale so I don't stock up. THEN he came back and said we needed something to take if we went to a New Year's dinner but that depends on weather and how I feel and how he feels.
Fresh herbs and some salad items are going to be on the high side for sure.
On the menu with the note I am sure some will get bumped out for some reason or another AND I need to NOT make too many servings so we don't have leftovers for 4 days.
sausage patties, canned potatoes, 3 bean salad , spinach and mandarin oranges for tomorrow.
Ribs, black eye peas, mashed potatoes and kraut for NY Day unless we go to the dinner. Then it will be the day after.
