Meal Pinning Monday

August 16, 2016

Yes, I know it's now Tuesday. Yesterday I wasn't entirely sure it was Monday. It's a case of several days of house arrest due to the flooding down here and not knowing what day it is.

We are currently on the 3rd day of school being cancelled due to flooding, our neighborhood didn't flood, but there were several that were evacuated. We have 3 different friends in Denham Springs who have evacuated and last we heard one had a few feet of water in the attic. The devastation there is just unreal.

I can't imagine losing absolutely everything and having to rebuild my life from the ground up. Especially with small children, two of the families I know personally have small kids. I thought I was going to go nuts without being about to get Harrison some breakfast food when it really hit here, but being taken away from a home by army tank is another story.

So on a lighter note, here's out meals for the week. We were actually able to get out to grocery shop, and luckily there was still food at WalMart, one of the local places was nearly cleared out of essentials the other day. On the down side, shopping due to epic flooding means dodging snakes in the dairy isle.

True story.

I passed a snake, by inches, and didn't see it until some guys started messing with it after I walked by. Later on I saw a scuff mark in the floor and nearly ran screaming ha!

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.

Monday - Meatloaf & Mash - didn't make last week

Tuesday - Beef Stroganoff

Wednesday - Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Thursday - leftovers

Friday - Chick-fil-a Nuggets with Fries
