*Update: this is what I got off of the boiled carcass
Monday's planned overs: l/o sliced turkey in homemade gravy over egg noodles, l/o aspragus, l/o roasted Butternut, l/o stuffing.
Today starts my crunch time: I am picking up another 2 nights (luckily all additional coursework will take place in my home city) of classes for the next month. In 2 weeks, a once a week day class starts, followed by 2 one time "work shop" type courses I am required to attend. A rough month ahead, so staying on top of what needs to get done, including quick to table, healthy meals which will use items purchased intentionally to get us through (such as sloppy joe sauce, fzn plain veg, canned no salt veg etc).
But it also brings on this, PSI light telling, me that my tire pressure is off. After asking DS #1 to test my tires with a gauge, I made plans to go to the Toyota dealership early this morning. No appointment, but if I didn't mind waiting (I did my homework and studying in their waiting room), they will look at it. With me driving 2 nights a week to the next city, a good 35 minutes away, I am not taking any chances. I also still have one tire that was plugged, due to picking up a nail last year.
As luck would have it, my diagnosis was spot on: I only needed more air in all of the tires. Pressure switch reset, I was back on my way, relieved.
Cost: $0 as the tires and the car were purchased here. I'm calling this today's freebie.
Originally, I had chicken cacciatore on the menu, with planned overs carrying into Monday. I grabbed a 58/lb frozen turkey at Price Rite, so that became Sunday supper.
Steam seems to have clouded up the photo: a supper plate. Delicious!
