Menu plan for 1/17-23

We finally had the lasagna tonight. It will probably make left overs for at least one more lunch and dinner, YUM! On the menu for the rest of the week:

Potato Soup
Veggie Soup with whole wheat rotini
Chicken and Rice and Green Pea casserole
Baked Chicken Fingers with red skin mashed potatoes and green bean casserole
Ground Turkey Tacos with Rice and Beans

I've sold 3 hats and one pair of mittens in the last month, yay me! Right now I am working on a hat for the shop, and after that, maybe a scarf or two also for the shop. I've made myself a couple of scarves, and a nice warm hat for dh. I also had to work on mil's hat that I gave her for Christmas, she wanted it to have a brim. All in all very busy!

Happy House Wife

I am finally getting a dishwasher tomorrow! YAY! It's my late Christmas present from dh. It's gotten harder and harder to keep up with the dishes as ds has gotten bigger. To keep the peace, I have to let him "help." This involves a towel, some soap bubbles, a pot, and about an inch of water, which inevitibly gets poured out onto the floor. Otherwise he hangs on my clothes and cries to be held up in my arms so he can see what I'm doing. I have tried wearing him while I wash dishes, and it really doesn't work well at all. He tries to leap out of the sling and splash in the sink. And he's bad about sneaking off and getting into mischief while I have my back turned. SO, long story short, I'm very stoked about getting a dishwasher. I really hope it makes life a little easier.

Spaghetti with ground turkey and garlic bread
Tacos and refried beans
potato soup
chicken tortilla soup
catfish, with mashed potatoes and veggies
baked chicken and mac n cheese and veggies
