Rollin' With It

The weekend was considerably different than I thought it would be when I wrote this post. As a result, I did not get a menu plan for this week figured out. However, I did take a good look in the "meat freezer" yesterday and have a decent idea of what my options are: chicken, 3 pork roasts, 1 ham, and a little ground beef. I was hoping for some porkchops, but I guess I've used them all up.

I did get a decent start on getting back into the daily to-do lists. I knew, but didn't really remember, that Monday was Labor Day. I got about 1/2 of my Monday list done, the high parts :) Since it was a cool, cloudy, drizzly day, Daniel thoroughly enjoyed it as a day OFF and did nothing. I don't blame him. He had a long days all last week, and ended up working on Sunday afternoon, too, since he was on call. Since he was enjoying a lazy day, it was easy for me to enjoy it, too.

Today I'm both tired and hungry. I didn't get to bed quite as early as my new bed-time last night, but not too much later. This morning I was still quite tired and ended up crawling back in bed. Now this afternoon I'm tired and HUNGRY. I think baby must be going through a growth spurt today or he (she?) ran a marathon last night while we weren't looking and burnt up all mommy's calories and energy. I had a good breakfast, a good lunch, and multiple good/healthy snacks in between, and I still feel like I could chow down on a good steak dinner any time.

Last night we had Liver & Onions, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes & Rolls for supper. Tonight I'm thinking about a Taco Casserole, but need to dig up a recipe. Some sites are taking for.ev.er to load, I don't know what the deal is. I want to check out $5 Dinners and see if Erin has a Taco Casserole recipe. I'm thinking something with Taco Meat, Pasta, Tomatoes, Cheese and Sour Cream... all things I have on hand :) Sometime this week I think I'll make one of the pork roasts in the crockpot.

I have a taco casserole recipe for you! Make up your taco meat and mix it with 3 cups of cooked (white or brown) rice. Spread in a baking dish. Layer sour cream over top then cheese or doritos/corn chips then cheese. My favorite! Gotta keep that baby fed!

Don't you just love how morning sickness ends and all you want to do is eat?! It is like your body is making up for lost time.

You Know, it sounds like you have a taco recipe already ;)
