What's For Dinner?
We're going to do things a little different today and do What's For Dinner this morning and then have Better Bites this afternoon. We had a crazy, crazy weekend and I didn't have time to get this morning's entry written up! So check back later for that!
Remember when weekends were about relaxing? Lately our weekends have just been crazy, upon crazy! Saturday we spent the morning running errands, and then the afternoon at Alexis' art class. By the time we got home it was time for dinner (I made Mexican) and then on to getting the little non-napped princess to bed.
On Sunday we went to church, went out to lunch. (More Mexican....Yum! Jamison actually isn't a fan and the first words out of his mouth were "Didn't we have Mexican yesterday?" But he indulges me so Mexican it was! ;oP) After lunch we set off in search of some sand for the driveway and a fire retardant hearth rug so we can use the fireplace if we need to. (All of this ice makes me nervous about power outages!) Two stores later we finally found the sand, but no rug. I ended up having to order one off of Amazon! We got home around 3:30 or so and then I immediately started lesson planning for the week.
Several hours later Jamison fed Alexis dinner and then got her into bed, while I finished up lesson planning for the most part. (I still have some things to get ready for the rest of the week.) After Miss G was in bed I finally stopped the constant motion that was the weekend and Jamison and I sat down on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and watched "Pride and Prejudice". (The newer version...The Colin Firth version is in my NetFlix queue next! I can't believe I haven't seen either of those!) Needless to say, other than the movie it was a move, run, do, do, do sort of weekend and unfortunately they all have been that way lately! I really am NOT a fan of those kinds of weekends! I much prefer the slow, mellow sorts instead!
Anyway, what does that have to do with dinner tonight? Absolutely nothing! So let's get to the dinner part now, shall we? ;oP
Jamison is in class this evening and Alexis and I are both a little sniffley/snarfully so we're having soup. It's a new idea I'm working on, with chicken, tomatoes, thyme, etc. I've been thinking about it for a while, but just never got around to trying it out. Tonight is the night! I'm sure you'll see the recipe soon! ;oP
What are you having?

Strangely enough, I'm putting together the beef-barley soup that you had up not long ago. :) I'm kind of winging this one because we don't have any beef boullion (sp?) in the house -- it's a sodium thing -- and I haven't gotten my act together enough to make beef broth/stock yet. At all. Generally because the DH doesn't like beef all that much unless it's hamburgers! :D So I'm throwing in some veg. stock with the water and hoping the small amount of juices from the ground beef will help flavor it.
Also roasting some root veggies, but those are for me for lunch. And fresh baked bread. My, I've been busy today! :D
