I didn’t have to cook much last week, but I really don’t feel like cooking this week now either.  I think I’m in a cooking slump.  I received lots of dishes for freezer cooking & a Kitchenaid Mixer for Christmas, but I don’t feel like using them.  Maybe next week :-)

This weeks menu plan has been difficult.  I’m just at a total loss on what to make.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who has these moments.  I’m also unable to get into the garage freezer.  Derrick painted the garage floor over the weekend (we use it as our entrance), but the paint is still wet.

I was feeling off last week, so I didn’t really stick to my menu plan or even cook much. Good thing the kids like grilled cheese!  I didn’t finish up my freezer cooking either.  I’m hoping to get back on track this week, so you’ll notice some repeats.

(make freezer mashed potatoes)
(make chicken salad for lunches)

Tuesday
Shredded beef with freezer mashed potatoes

Wednesday
Pork Fried Rice with egg rolls I got free from Harris Teeter
