Well Downton Abbey is keeping me totally distracted. It’s putting way behind in my blogging! I thought for sure I could write this last night while I was watching, but I become so engrossed that I can’t do anything else. Not only that, we don’t have cable, so I have to wait until the show has finished airing to watch it on the computer. Last night’s episode was two hours, so I was up extra late!
Well, the contest is continuing to go well. Doug has come up with a whole scoring system, but for this week and last week, we’ll just use the original point system. I made dinner every night last night week. My friend Trase told me about a house cleaning app that helps me keep on top of everything. I’ve only been using Home Routines for a few days, but I’m liking it. It will be more help when I finish syncing it with the contest schedule.
I did make last week’s FFwD recipe. In fact, I made two recipes because I thought we were supposed to be making the Nutella tart, but the recipe was actually for Nutella Tartine, which was way easier … except that I made Peter Reinhart’s Challah to go with it! I had a crazy day Friday, and Saturday was all family, so I didn’t post.
Here’s the Menu for last week:
- Sunday 02/06: Super Bowl: Wings, Ribs, Veggies, Cake
- Monday 02/07: Pork Pasta
- Tuesday 02/08: Meatballs with purple potatoes
- Wednesday 02/09: Spaghetti
- Thursday 02/10: Hellman’s Chicken (Have you tried this? Absolutely amazing!)
- Friday 02/11: I tried a different version of Thursday’s chicken with avocado and corn chips)
- Saturday 02/12: Raid the refrigerator quiche
Current Point Tally: 19
Money spent on groceries last week: $74.60
Have a happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Anyone have any exciting plans? We’re planning a low key evening at home. I’ll let you know how it went on Wednesday.
