We did not leave our home this weekend. We had an ice storm Saturday night into Sunday morning. Then it turned to rain, back to freezing rain, and then to snow. We woke up this morning to a couple of inches of white everywhere. There is more on the way this week.
When you are older, your worst nightmare is falling on the ice. So we don't even take the risk. My sister contacted me on Saturday to let me know that my brother-in law had fallen on the ice in their driveway and fractured his knee cap. He will mend but it will be slow. After his accident and Sluggy's Hubs accident, I think I will stay put whenever there is bad weather.
Being retired, we have the privilege of waiting storms out and going out to run errands on weather free days. That is part of the freedom that we have enjoyed all of these years.
However that said, my son drove 90 miles each way to bring my grandson to his swimming lesson and for breakfast here. He does this every Sunday and weather does not seem to bother him. I was a little worried but they got here and home just fine.
Since my son is on a special diet and only eats protein foods and vegetables, we have been having one big breakfast every Sunday consisting of lots of eggs and either ham, sausage or bacon. We are all happy with this menu and it makes it easy for me because I always know what I need to shop for. Hubby and my grandson also have some juice.
However this weekend, I decided to try something different. I wanted to see if my grandson would like biscuits. I asked my son and he said he would think that he would. So I made homemade biscuits for breakfast too. My grandson loved them and gobbled down 4 of them warm spread with butter. I forgot to take a picture and there are none left. Sorry!
Last Sunday, my grandson took the top off our cookie jar and there were no cookies. The look on his face was such disappointment. So after breakfast yesterday, he and I made Toll House chocolate chip cookies and filled up the cookie jar. He had some warm cookies and I sent him home with a container full of them to enjoy this week. My above pictured cookie jar was full yesterday. I think Hubby has been enjoying them. I try to stay away from them but I did eat two yesterday and they were so good.
Because there is a sloppy mess out today, we are again going to nest. I will continue organizing in my kitchen. It is getting done slow but sure. I think I will work on my serving dish cupboard and my pots and pans cupboard. Our son brought us all of the Star Wars movies that are out. So I think Hubby and I will start at the beginning and watch one today. I can watch from my kitchen while I work. Our home is open concept so that makes it very easy. It is a movie watching kind of day.
I planned our menu for the week yesterday:
Sunday: Tomato soup with onions, spices, and tiny macaroni. I was not hungry so Hubby made this favorite that he likes.
Monday: Baked haddock, broccoli and pears for dessert
Tuesday: Pork chops, pineapple slices, and green beans
Wednesday: Pork stir fry with peppers and onions and orange sauce on rice
Thursday: Pancakes with strawberries and maple syrup
Friday: Homemade pizza; veggies for me and pepperoni for Hubby, tossed salad.
Saturday: Beef stew in the crockpot with potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery
Sunday: Leftover smorgasboard
I am hoping that the roads are okay tomorrow because I need to go grocery shopping for a few items.
Did you make your menu this week? If you care to share, leave it in the comments.
I am signing out to go and get some organizing done. I hope you all have a great day!
