Mos tall the time, I have our menu made up for at least a week in advance. I have a real hard time doing things without a plan. When we were getting ready for Chad, Nicole and Addie to get here, my meal plans weren’t coming together but I was too busy getting things cleaned and put away from Addie’s reach. They left and I still don’t seem to have my act together. Yesterday I was out running errands at lunch time and Vince knew I wouldn’t be home so he fixed himself a sandwich.
This morning I got up and knew I kept thinking about what I would do for lunch. I took a package of ground meat out . . thinking I might brown it and add a jar of spaghetti sauce. Then I thought hamburger steaks and gravy might be nice, then I thought sweet & sour meatloaf would be good but . . I just kept knitting. I looked up a recipe for ham and zucchini that’s served over pasta and I thought about that. Then I decided to go sew for a while. By then, it was almost 10:30 and Vince is home a little after 11 for lunch.
Desperation was creeping over me so I began digging through the freezer and I found this bag of frozen shrimp and crab ravioli. That didn’t sound bad.
I knew there were a few jars of my home canned pasta sauce left so I grabbed the ravioli. Pasta without bread isn’t good and there’s no good, crusty bread in this house right now so I made Fogo Rolls.
Vince sat down to eat and had no idea that he almost didn’t get lunch and that I have no plans for meals and my choice would have been a bowl of ice cream!
I must put the knitting down, walk away from Addie’s quilt, and get some meal plans done!
For some reason, your post today cracked me up. Maybe it’s because I’ve found it so hard to have ANY plans for anything in a very long time. I’m happy to hear you got some sewing in! I’ve missed all your quiltiness while you’ve been more focused on other things, so hope that means some quilt photos will eventually show up again.
I am busy with a huge rug hooking project in preparation for a Hook-in at the end of next week. There is part of it I am more comfortable hooking at home so it has been the main focus of my attention. Today I knew there was enough Cowboy Stew from yesterday so didn’t worry about lunch. At the last minute I decided we needed corn on the cob and fried potatoes to go with it. Healthy, no. Easy to fix, yes. As the garage door went up I was turning the burners off. Whew! It’s over and I can get back to my rug hooking. Have fun…some days we need to put the husbands on auto-pilot. Enjoy your afternoon.
Ooo, I think you’ve shown those rolls a time or two in the past and it always reminds me of popovers, which we usually have for our holiday meals. I sent the recipe to DS#1 telling him we might have to try these next time (as I do love the Fogo rolls, probably more than everything else they have! LOL).
