The Plan

Monday, January 31, 2011

I have a plan! For this week anyway. ;) So heeere we go.

Monday (that's today): Carrie's burritos. Mmmmmm.

Tuesday: Cream Cheese Chicken with egg noodles and roasted broccoli. (I'm also going to make cookies..mmmmmmm again.)

Wednesday: Garlic Tomato Chicken

Thursday: Chicken and Dumplings

Friday: Chicken soft tacos

Sat and Sun: You guys are on your own.

Yes I know that's 4 days in a row of chicken. Get used to it. Chicken is cheap and versatile. Somewhere in all this cooking, I'm going to try to make flour tortillas. And some bread. And cupcakes. I'm in a baking mood even though I suck at it.

And, since I'm going to cook and plan and only shop once a week (HA!) I'm going to need more storage space. So this is going to have to change.

Yes, that is yarn. In my deep freezer. The yarn needs a new home I guess. And it probably needs a new home BEFORE I leave for the store this afternoon. Where, oh where can it go?

Let's get this started!

My friends and I have been having many "What's for dinner?" discussions on Facebook lately and it was suggested that I should start a blog about what I make for dinner every night and how I do it. SO here we go! Am I going to blog every day? No. Do I promise that if you do what I did, it'll be edible? Heck no. But I am going to blog at least a couple of times a week and while I make no promises on quality, I do promise we can get fat together because I don't do healthy, ya'll. ;)

Also, I have 6 taste testers! The oldest is PICKY PICKY PICKY so if it gets his endorsement, it's something special. The 7 yr old pretends she likes everything but I think secretly she's just as picky as the older one. The 4 and 3 yr old will eat anything and especially love chicken. (I love chicken too because it's CHEAP.) Mr. 1 yr old lovey baby will eat anything as long as daddy had it first and it's not hot. And the daddy himself will eat what I tell him to and LIKE IT! (Seriously, he has a pretty adventurous palate and I enjoy cooking for him.)

So here we go, ladies. How many pounds can we gain in a month and who's going to start the workout blog when we get fat?
