The Weekly Menu – February 10, 2014

My Internet woes continue, but I’m not waiting for them to be resolved. Our ISP is installing a new wifi tower closer to our home, and the time frame is as short as three weeks to as long as three months. It takes a whole lot longer to blog with the slow speeds we have now, but blog I shall!

(If you click on the links below, and then make a purchase, some of them may put a few pennies into my pocket. Of course, there is no additional cost to you. I am always grateful to those of you who choose to bless me this way. You can read about how I spend those pennies, and more about how I earn them, in my disclosure policy.)

This next week is busy, with folks coming and going all week. Aaron’s work schedule continues to be varied as his plant waits for orders to pick up in the spring. Will leaves on Friday for Winter Camp with our church’s youth group, and he’ll be gone until Monday afternoon. Copper will work a couple of days “on call” late in the week. I’m hoping to see Corin and the grandkids on Thursday, if everyone is finally well, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Dani will be able to come up for a visit one day, too. We’re in town all afternoon Wednesday for piano lessons and errands. My girls and I are giving Zaycon Foods meats a try for the very first time, so I’ll be picking up our chicken in the early evening.

Busy days, like Wednesday, make meals made in the slow cooker very appealing. I’m so happy to have found a better way to use my Crockpot, and I’m happy to spend some time Wednesday morning to prep everything for Wednesday night’s dinner. I’ll use the last of the beautiful chuck roasts I picked up a few weeks ago when I followed the butcher down the meat case as he placed markdown stickers on various packages. That was a sweet providence! I’ll leave the house Wednesday, with the slow cookercooking dinner and the bread machinebaking bread, and come home to yummy aromas and a delicious, hot dinner.
