We had an eventful weekend. My daughter had a car accident, and the important thing is that no one was hurt. On the other hand, the minivan was pretty damaged, and it is old enough to not be worth repairing–the thing is only worth about $1000, and I would be shocked if we could get it repaired for twice that. Luckily, my brother sells cars and he found the perfect replacement vehicle for us It is another Ford Windstar, 3 years newer than the old one, and it didn’t cost very much!
Now we are ready for a nice uneventful week (hopefully!), and we are not looking to spend any money for a while. We stocked up at Costco right before this started, so we should be in good shape. We are getting back to eating at the dinner table every night–we used to be so good about that, but lately we are struggling a bit. It does make the evenings go better, and limits the amount of TV we watch, though, so I am keeping at it.
Sunday: Salmon burgers, leftover veggies
Monday: Chicken Thigh Supper, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans and bacon
Tuesday: Thanksgiving leftovers
Wednesday: Salmon casserole with green beans and cauliflower, noodles for the kids, sauteed spinach
Thursday: Hamburgers, buttered broccoli, sauteed mushrooms
Friday: Bacon and mushroom omelette, salad
Saturday: Appetizers at a trivia night–I am thinking avocado bacon devilled eggs and maybe a Spanish frittata with carmelized onions and some kind of tomato-red pepper sauce
