The days after Halloween can be tricky. There is all this candy lying around. Butter Beane wants some constantly. All I hear is "I can have candy now?" I always say "you can pick a piece after you eat your lunch." He continues to ask about 100 more times during lunch and then finally he has eaten enough to warrant a piece of candy. The other issue is, there is a ton of candy around here that String Beane is allergic to. It also happens to be my favorite kind of candy. Reese cups, Snickers, Twix etc... Mr. Homegrown and I have been eating it for days. Our metabolism has slowed down so this is not a good practice. I may just accidentally throw most of it away pretty soon.
Meals last week were pretty good. Some hits and misses. Pizza shaped like a jack-o-lantern is always a winner. The Crock Pot French dip sandwiches and Chicken and Dumplings are family favorites and were yummy. I made the Frogmore Stew for Mr. Homegrown and he loved it. String Beane loves shrimp and so did Jelly Beane. This was a definite winner. The big miss was the Pasta with white beans, chicken and spinach. Mr. Homegrown said not to make that anymore. It was okay for me but not a repeater at all.
On to this week: Here is what I have planned.
Sweet and Sour Chicken (recipe to come)
Salad for me!
Breakfast for Supper
