I'm a little on the cranky side lately; my right eye (the one with the mild case of pink eye for two weeks) has been driving me batty, my mother keeps laughing at me for feeding my family beans and hoe cakes for dinner, and Florida has been on fire (literally) making the air quality quite cruddy with the ash and other stuff floating about so I haven't been able to go outside at all (health advisories state do not go outside unless necessary, PE has been cancelled at most of the schools, even the baseball game last week was cancelled and those with tickets get to use them for a future game) or even open my windows for more than a week. There have been other things, too, but that's the thing... everything has been relatively minor when considered by itself, but compiled together as they have been recently they're enough to make even me cranky.

Still, I have to feed my family. So a menu.

Sunday: lunch: leftovers (clean out the refrigerator time!)
        dinner: baked potatoes topped with broccoli and grated cheese, various veggies and leftovers on the side
Monday: I have no earthly idea. Truly I don't. If I don't come up with something else, then Foil-Pack Taco Chicken Dinner (with link to my tweaks to come)
Tuesday: beans, rice, salad
Wednesday: pasta and salad (probably do grocery shopping this day...)
Thursday: leftovers (...or this day)
Friday: homemade pizza, salad
Saturday: lunch: ??
        dinner: 40 clove garlic chicken (link to my tweaks to come), probably mashed potatoes, whatever veggies fall out of the freezer, salad

We haven't had baked potatoes with all the fixings for dinner in quite a while -- I'll have to remember to do it next month, perhaps!

It's rough when all the little things add up. It makes life miserable. I hope you get feeling better soon and I also hope they get the fires put out.

Hate those weeks when lots of little things seem to pile up too.
Hope this week is better.

Yep, piling up the little annoyances can make anyone cranky...I do hope things make a major turn around this week!

I made the 40 clove chicken week before last and itwas SO good!

The kraft recipe for taco chicken sounds delish too! I added it to my favorites!

Have a blessed week,
