Loving Home 7/3/07


Today I am taking my oldest to my mom's to stay the night. I am going to try and get my closet finished (I am clearing out boxes & getting rid of stuff). After that, I am going to work on decluttering the MBR. I have been listing like crazy on freecycle.

Today's Menu:
Breakfast: Cereal with nectarines, Bacon & Tomato Sandwiches, scrambled eggs with bacon and toast (everyone wanted different things today...LOL)
Lunch: probably turkey club sandwiches
Dinner: Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie, French Fries and Skinny Seasoned Green Beans
Dessert: Leftovers

Yes, it's a great (& easy) recipe. I just added a few extra touches...fresh herbs (can use dried), mushrooms & garlic. I also thought about adding a can of diced tomatoes, but didn't have any on hand. I bet salsa would be good, too.
