Before we went grocery shopping yesterday morning, I worked up a tentative menu–That way we wouldn’t spend too much…Hopefully anyway. We ended up spending about $65, but there were a few things we got that were REALLY expensive, and while I tried cutting them from the list, Jay was paying this time around & told me to get whatever we needed. Then yesterday afternoon, he decided we should have some steaks, if I didn’t mind grilling, so back to the store we went (and to pick up some hot dogs, since that’s what the bambino wanted). As such, I figured I should probably re-tweak my menu, and shuffle a few things around.
Sunday–Polenta with Fresh Corn (another Gwyneth recipe–Help me!)
Monday–Cincinnati Chili 3-Ways (In light of everything, I’m feeling homesick)
Wednesday–Beef Bacon & Corn Muffins
Thursday–Daycare Potluck Picnic (this is exactly what it sounds like)
The Cupcake & Muffins cookbook Jay bought me a few weeks ago has already come in really handy, as far as giving me SCADS of cupcakes & muffins I want to try making. This morning, I made Double Corn Muffins, and followed the suggested breakfast pairing–Roasted Tomatoes & Bacon. We’ve got a bunch of cherry tomatoes to eat up, so they were perfect!
The rest of breakfast was awesome.
We were supposed to go to for Sunday dinner over at Jay’s parents’ house, so before we left, I finished the cupcakes I was taking over to share.
Strawberries & Cream Cupcakes. Pretty much just strawberry shortcake in cupcake form. I even got a compliment on them from my father-in-law, and he usually ducks out before dessert shows up!
I was thinking that I might start some laundry, but seeing as I have 2 extra days to get it done…I’ll probably just be lazy and slack off for awhile this afternoon!
