Okay, last I left you with a big ???? on day 27. We ended up having a deliciously fattening meal of Chicken Fried Steak smothered in country gravy - WHOO HOO! It was a smashing hit and oh so filling. Ahh, that would be the fattening part, I guess?!
Day 28 - last night my Mom rescued us with Take-And-Bake pizza since we'd been working on taxes all day. :) What a sweetie!
Today - we had spaghetti with a new home-made sauce I made up. It turned out very good and fairly spicy!! That, my friends, would be the newly found secret spice I'm using in nearly everything these days. Well, not everything, but supper wise, eggs, meat, everything. It's got the bang of a 30-06 for sure! (Pronounce that thirty-ought-six. It's a rifle. A very nice size rifle. But I want a 25-06. Pronounce that the same way but change the thirty to twenty-five.) Oh how I want a 25-06. Maybe I should tell DH that I want it for Mother's Day? That way I'd have it for fall hunting. Anniverary perhaps? What could be more romantic for a guy than to get his wif-E a rifle? On second thought, maybe I ought to buy it myself. Yeah, that's what I should do.
Anyways...on to The Island discussion. It's over. I can finally go to the store. There's just one little hitch in my get-along. I don't want to. I like having to be creative and make my family eat things they might not normally. I like not having to have balanced meals because we're "ON THE ISLAND!" If we only eat meat - it's okay! The next night may be meatless! So, there. I said it. I want to stay on The Island. We still have too much food in our pantry and in our freezer.
So, here's what we're going to do. I'm going to go back to my great meal-planning and not buy everything I want for the meal but make do. Use up what we have and start fresh. Purge the Pantry may be the theme. How does that sound?
