Hello from Soccerville! While the kids' (and husband's!) season is over, the playoffs are rocking around here. Hurricane Sandy moved the Big East soccer championships to our local venue, so we spent a fun day cheering on Notre Dame to victory there. And in D-3 action, another local team is romping through their playoffs as well, so we've been very soccer social lately.
This week, school conferences start. I always enjoy the extra time with the boys but wow, on the heels of the three days off for the hurricane, plus election day, it's a bit of a lost month. And now to add to the lost school time: Younger Son had a mishap with a nerf gun and has a huge chip to his front tooth. Off to the dentist we go...
Monday: crockpot beef stroganoff, egg noodles, broccoli
Tuesday: taco Tuesday--back in the swing.
Wednesday: trying the whole chicken in the crockpot recipe. I hope. Roasted potatoes, salad, peas.
Thursday: half days begin! Hoping for leftovers. If not, there are just a few things still in the freezer we can make.
Friday: Unclear. We'll see how the week goes. I would love to go out but we've had other splurges this week so I should probably just get my act together and be here.
One new recipe: I made lamb chops (unusual for us) from this recipe and it was great. Older son did not enjoy but younger one did, and Dad most certainly did.
The freezer is almost clear, just in time to fill it for the holidays. My husband didn't totally believe me when I said that Thanksgiving was next week, but it's true! And the truncated school weeks continue...
Here's wishing you a great week of dinners and dental health. Check out I'm an Organizing Junkie! for more great menu plans!
