A weekly roundup: eats, watches, and reads. This weekend I made Millionaire Bars. If it's true that you are what you eat, we're in good shape. And they are delicious.
I've been obsessing non-stop about homemade Egg McMuffins with bacon.
Salad bowls with rice, roasted sweet potatoes, cole slaw mix, kalmata olives, and the beef shawarma that I made last weekend.
Monday: you've seen this before! Leftover beef kebabs and mashed potatoes from the weekend.
Tuesday: well, well, if it isn't Sunday's dinner all over again, grilled chicken and rice. Love, love the rice.
Wednesday: Costco orange chicken and egg rolls.
Thursday: leftover cleanout
Friday: mandatory take out night, kids' choice.
Saturday: mandatory burger night. The kids had "normal" hamburgers and the adults had bacon ranch chicken burgers.
Sunday: um, yeah, after a long streak of dinner success I stuck out. Instant pot beef fajitas that turned out to be "beef fajita stew". It's not bad but it's also not that great. Exactly what you want from a meal with lots of leftovers. I mean we'll eat it but...not we're exactly going into this next week with a fridge full of sure fire delicious leftovers like last week.
Nothing much, finished Mama June from Not to Hot.
I finished Behind Closed Doors. I like suspense but this book was borderline too intense for me. There were a few times when I came close to clicking the home button on my Kindle and walking away (see Modern Mrs. Darcy's excellent post You Don't Want to Go There). BUT BUT BUT this was also a very good, well written book, and the ending was oh so satisfying so I'm glad that I stuck with it.
Currently: Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan. I've just started it but I have heard good things so I am hopeful.
Also "reading" a.k.a "listening to" the audiobook Smacked by Eileen Zimmerman. It's a memoir by a journalist who's ex-husband was a very successful lawyer and a hard core drug addict and her putting together the pieces to figure everything out. I'm almost done, definitely recommend it, but it's not a light read.
