OMG! I am very sorry for your loss.

Friday night I stayed at work late so my mom had leftovers and my boss treated me to Chinese after we cleaned up the entire back room.

Last night we had homemade chicken fettuchini alfredo and salad

Tonight we are having apple meatloaf with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts.

Thank you friends. This was such a tragedy. DH actually works with this friend, and the heart attack happened at work. It was my BFF's brother in law. So many lives affected by the loss. Then after the horrible tragedy that happened in Connecticut Friday, it has been a sad weekend.

Yea, I can barely keep my eyes open and had no energy to actually cook.

I tried to make the chicken stock (for last night's lemon chicken soup) in the afternoon yesterday, but the liquid boiled away while I was picking up the kids from school and burned the bottom of the pot (DH was home and pulled it off the burner before it was too bad but after it was too late to save either the pot or the stock) so we ordered Swiss Chalet delivery for some rotisserie chicken. They have a 50 min guarantee but delivered the food 1.25 hours after I called so we got it for free. It wasn't that great...kinda cold and the fries were soggy so I'm glad we didn't have to pay for it.

I took steak out of the freezer last night, so we'll have that and baked potatoes tonight for dinner with either salad or some frozen veggies.

Tomorrow night is something with chicken breasts...another busy day so we'll likely just broil them and make up a lipton sidekicks noodle package to go with them.

Friday night is scheduled to be leftover night. Saturday morning I have to take the turkey out of the freezer so I need to make sure there's room in the fridge but since the soup was a bust, I'm thinking there won't be anything leftover to eat. If that's the case we'll just have grilled cheese sammies.

We're taking the kids on a Spirit of Christmas train ride Saturday afternoon (we help Santa save Christmas!!) and it ends at dinner time so I need to find a good crockpot recipe that the kids will eat (which is the tricksy part!!) so I can set it in the morning and then come home to some delicious eats.

I haven't planned any further than that yet...
