My Daddy passed away late Wednesday night. The past several days have been filled with details and processing the change in all of our lives. He left a legacy of a 50 year marriage, being a great Dad and Grandpa, and always being my protector and the big lap I could crawl up in for a good cry, even after I was an adult. He left us with great memories and he will be missed.
We have a busy week ahead of us. Our Homeschool co-op is kicking off, and the pages of my calendar are starting to look like they exploded. It's also the end of the month when money is tight and I'm trying to use up what's in our freezer, pantry and fridge to not only make the budget stretch but to give it a good clean before we fill it again in October. Here's what is cooking at our house this week.
Freezer muffins, fruit smoothies or oatmeal
Chicken Salad Sandwiches with veggie and fruit tray
Bacon and Potato Chowder
Stir Fry over Steamed Rice
Ham and Bean soup (from freezer)
Caramel Apple Oven Pancake
