Meal Plan Monday Post

We had a very eventful week! We started the week by wrapping up painting in the bonus room and upstairs hall. Throughout the week I worked on washing all the sheets and putting the guest rooms back together (we swapped the bed sets between the rooms). Then we woke up Friday to a winter wonderland. Fortunately we weren't without power which means we weren't without some yummy food. However there was one small hiccup with the meal plan. When I went to the store on Thursday I was unsure of how much produce / perishable items to buy because if the power did go out we wouldn't have a way to cook the items. I went on the conservative side and didn't buy a lot. Some meals like the sweet potato risotto could be prepared mostly from the pantry and then the brunswick stew got thrown together with lots of freezer things and the final meal of the week was a salad with all random toppings from the fridge. So the snowed in winter wonderland gave us a great reason to "use up" some items in the pantry / freezer. Finally in preparation for the winter wonderland on Thursday I baked some homemade goodies that were peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and delivered them to our neighbors Friday afternoon.
