I almost forgot it was Sunday night because of the nice long weekend. Another snow filled one here, complete with very cold noses and homemade hot cocoa. I made a loaf of oatmeal bread in the bread maker today and it was enjoyed as an afternoon snack, and at the neighbor’s for dinner.
This week is a short meal plan as we plan to visit friends in Vermont. I’m planning on making a batch of homemade granola to pack with us for the trip. This morning we made the Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes from the Joy the Baker cookbook and they were so good, I may make a dry mix of it to make again and share with friends. We topped them with some homemade applesauce that we made last fall…delicious. I find it’s helpful to take care of breakfast foods when you are a houseguest, especially when you are able to bring something special.
Sunday~ It was going to be Walnut Crusted Salmon…last-minute switch and had Shepherd’s Pie with the neighbors. Perfect end to a snowy day.
Monday ~ Probably having the salmon for lunch, then Sloppy Joe’s for dinner. (Pioneer Woman’s recipe.) Plus I have a sample of Smith’s Farm Gourmet Macaroni and Cheese kit to test out. It’s a local dairy farm and there are two beautiful cheeses that I’m excited to mix up into yummy side dish.
Tuesday~ Our family favorite chicken nuggets and sweet potato fries on the side. We will need to finish up any leftovers in the fridge too.
Wednesday~ Off to vacation!!
Anyone else taking some vacation this week? Do you tend to bring some of your own food or pick things up once you get to your destination?
