We had a good (busy as usual) week this week. Corey had state math contest on Saturday. This is the NCTM contest, and they give awards to the top ten scorers in each grade. He qualified last year, but did not place. This year, he got 8th place! He was ecstatic. Eric's parents came to visit this weekend, which was a nice treat. Sunday we helped with a church youth group luncheon. I made Chicken Enchilada Soup and Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup, which were very popular. I did have a minor fiasco. My crockpot melted through the bottom and burned my counter. If I wouldn't have caught it before we left the house, we wouldn't have a house! So, word of warning - don't get a crockpot with a plastic bottom. I've used it for years, so I'm not sure what happened, but it was scary. I also made some blondies and chocolate chips cookies. We had some nice family time together this weekend.
During the week, I was pretty much able to stick to the menu. The low country boil on Tuesday was fun, but made way too much food for our family of three. Next time we will have to have some friends over. This coming week is pretty busy, so you will see some quick and easy meals. I'm only going to post dinner this week. I haven't had time yet to plan out breakfasts. I hope you enjoy. For more menus, see orgjunkie.com.
