The baby was pretty clingy this weekend, to the point that we almost cancelled our anniversary date on Saturday night. Luckily, like most little ones, he screamed while we dropped him off, but before we even got out of the car at the restaurant I got this:
Yes, that’s Wilfred – Uncle Caleb was home for the weekend from college, and testing out his Halloween costume on a dare from Uncle Kyle.
By Sunday, baby was much happier, and I was able to stock the freezer with:
– Apples, pears, yellow squash, and sweet potatoes for PJ
– Chicken Broccoli Alfredo (really simple: throw the broccoli into the pasta pot as soon as the water boils. When it comes back to the boil, add the pasta and cook for the package time. Strain it all together, then add cooked chicken and a jar of alfredo sauce and stir).
– Chicken Enchiladas – I actually used a Kraft Recipe Starter kit for these, all I had to do was brown chicken, add sauces, and roll up tortillas. Easy peasy!
– Mac ‘n Cheeseburger – another easy one. Make a box of mac n cheese. Brown up ground beef (1 lb per box of mac n cheese made) with some onions, garlic, salt & pepper. Add 8 oz tomato sauce per pound of beef, and one can of diced tomatoes to the mac n cheese. Serve beef over mac n cheese. Yum!
I made big batches of everything and got 3-4 pans of each recipe so that should last us awhile!
