Ok, I think I jinxed it last week when I complained about the snow. We had about a foot of snow on Thursday, another 4-5 inches by Friday morning, and 2-3 inches on Saturday. All of that was on top of the snow that was already on the ground! The snow has drifted, so it's hard to get an exact reading of the current depth, but it's a lot!

Now, on to the menu. This week's meals are almost completely from the freezer. I froze the turkey gyros, along with meatballs and browned meat, a few weeks ago when ground turkey was on sale for $1.66/lb. I bought the frozen tilapia a few weeks ago, the venison is from Hubby's hunting adventures back in the fall, and the Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken was a kit I created during my snow day. I will be buying some staples (flour, cheese, yogurt, raisins, and lots of veggies), but I'm hoping that doing an "eat out of the freezer week" will result in a reduced grocery bill. :-)
Hubby and Kiddo will be on their own Friday night through Sunday afternoon as I go on a Ladies' Retreat with my mom, sister, and sister-in-law. I'm excited to go, but a little nervous about leaving my men alone. Last year I had to come home early because they both got the stomach bug, so hopefully they'll stay healthy this year! Hubby knows his way around the kitchen, but since he'll be on his own with a potentially cranky two-year-old at meal times, we tried to make things simple with quick-cooking fish, take-out pizza and a crock pot kit.

So, that's all here! What do you have planned for this week?
