Is it just horrible where you live? Our area has been dumped on with snow and frigid temperatures. Like you kind of want to die if you leave your house cold. We are all going a bit stir crazy and the only answer seemed to book some tickets to Florida for in a few weeks. Until then though it’s going to be all about comfort here. Nothing else will do.
Sunday night my parents are coming by. Company sauce will be roasting away all day and will be tossed with fresh pasta. Good Italian sausage will also be served for my dad, the carnivore. A spinach salad will round out the meal.
Apparently Monday is going to be ‘life threatening cold’ – oh yippee! I can’t wait! Another day of being stuck inside with the kids. We’ll be baking homemade chocolate chip cookies to take the edge off. Winter vegetable soup is a recipe my mom recently told me I ‘had to blog about’ so seems like the perfect day to do just that.
Tuesday will be another night of bitter cold so let’s go with leftover soup and crusty french bread.
Wednesday the home will smell insane from the asian pork shoulder that will be simmering away in the crockpot all day. Brown rice and sugar snap peas on the side.
And let’s round out the week’s meal planning with our pizza.
What’s cooking in your kitchen this week? I’d love to hear!
