Lunch — Chicken Pot Pie Soup (I think I might make this the day before and put it in the fridge so I’ll have less work after we get home from church, we’re usually starving by then.)
Dinner — Pork chops in the crock pot, mashed potatoes, and corn on the cob.
I love being back in my kitchen. After our long California vacation I really missed cooking for my family. Now that I’m back I’m going to be getting in some better habits to keep the place clean. I spend so much time in there that I really need to keep it in order. Since I’ll have a nice orderly room to play in, I’m also intending to shake up our meals a little bit. I have a tendency to get in a rut and just make our favorite dishes over and over and over again. They’re good (that’s why they are our favorites), but it does get a little boring. I’m going to dust off some old recipes and search out some new ones. As I make up some of my own creations, I’ll share the recipes ore often (so long as they turn out well). 😉
