Looks like a miserable day in Renfrew County -well not for the school kids.  Supposed to be freezing rain all day so buses are cancelled.  Skating will likely be cancelled too (by me or the club), especially since I do the driving on Monday and I hate driving in any kind of bad weather.

Bit of a quiet week, Ella’s done swimming till after March break and Guides is cancelled because my other leader is away. If skating is cancelled today too, then we’ve only got one outing this week.  Maybe I should set up a play date with her friends in Arnprior.  I wish my friend Teresa lived a little closer to Arnprior, then I could drop Ella off and head over to Teresa’s.  I miss seeing her every week since she moved from Douglas.  But she’s in such a much better place I have to be happy.

Well, what’s cooking this week?  Oh yeah, to be honest I chickened out of making the cauliflower chicken chili last week.  I didn’t think any one would even try it and I didn’t feel like making 2 meals.  Maybe next time.

Monday:

pizza

leftover chicken

Tuesday:

French onion tomato soup

honey mustard chicken  -I used honey mustard instead of the Dijon because that’s what was in the fridge

Wednesday:

pizza

beef stew

Thursday:  Colin’s Birthday

mac & cheese

tenderloin and French fries

Friday:

leftover stew

Salisbury steak (new from More Don’t Panic Dinner is in the Freezer)

Wow, more snow!  After cleaning up the snow around here Colin headed over to Beachburg to dig out Ella and Grandma.  Colin even was up on the house roof to shovel snow.  At least it’s a shorter fall than the barns and I know Grandma doesn’t have sharp and pointy farm implements around the base of her house.

Busy this week getting the house ready for Ella’s birthday party on Saturday.  A couple of her friends are staying over too.

spaghetti

Tuesday:

chili con carne

Aegeon beef -new crock-pot recipe

I tried a new grocery store on Friday.  Eganville has a Foodland.  I’ve never been in there before.  Wow they have a beautiful fruit and vegetable section.  Lots of variety AND 3, yes 3 kinds of tomatoes that DON’T come from Mexico!!!  Guess where I’m buying our fruit and veg. from now on?  Their bakery department is amazing too.  There must have been 5 kinds of store-made bread.  Their regular store-made white bread is only $2, which I’m willing to pay on days I don’t want to bake.  They also had mini jam-filled doughnuts.  They had a few other things on sale in the flyer so I did a bit of shopping.  They had pork shoulder roasts on for $1.99/lb.  Boy they sure looked nice.  So I picked up a 4lb one and made it on Saturday.  MMMMMM, that was really yummy.  It was just as nice as Colin’s pork.  Sale is still on, so I might drop in on tonight when we’re there for skating and pick up another roast for the freezer.

Monday:

sandwiches

leftover roast pork

Tuesday:

pork sandwiches

honey mustard baked chicken -yum (I used honey mustard instead of Dijon)

Wednesday:

soup

Thursday:

Friday:

Burr!  Winter has returned today.  -27 C (16 F) with the windchill!  Luckily today was not the day Colin had to drive home the “new” tractor home from Renfrew.   He drove it home Friday and only had to deal with light flurries.  It took 2 hours from Renfrew, I’m so glad it was only -1 or so on Friday.

Colin doesn’t usually like cab-less tractors, but this one is for doing stuff (eg., moving equipment) in the barn so it has to be short enough to fit in the doors.   As it was, he had to take the exhaust pipe off to fit.  Colin is quite happy with the tractor.  Very little hours on it and only cosmetic stuff that needs to be done in the spring.

Monday:

grilled cheese

spaghetti

Tuesday:

mac & cheese

garlic chicken

Wednesday:  Ella’s Birthday

tacos

McDonald’s

Thursday:

tomato soup

chicken Caesar salad

Friday:

l/o tacos

Beouf Bourguignon

Saturday:

sesame chicken

Sunday:
