Dessert was at home: homemade chocolate cake with Italian cherry preserves in the middle of the 2 layers, homemade chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate jimmies on top! Choice of 2 flavors of ice cream. It was delicious and decadent!
Lunch offerings today are a variety of leftovers that have to go!
While budgeted for year round, it's time to go back to basics, especially this tight Summer. I also found that physically, this prepared food takes a toll on me. I much prefer, as does my body, my own home cooking.
Tonight's menu will do just that: provide a healthy meal, on a budget. A family favorite is on deck: lazy golumbki casserole, taking advantage of some marked down beef I froze back in April. Brown rice, an onion (not pictured), a can of tomato soup, seasonings not pictured (salt, pepper, basil), as well as the rest of a Savoy cabbage combined with some green cabbage are the ingredients needed.
I also plan on serving a large, tossed salad with choice of ingredients.
Laundry already on the line, dishwasher is going, I will soon get ready for the day as one kidlet has to get a broken retainer either repaired or replaced and we have a 9:30 appointment. Temps are supposed to rise, along with humidity the next few days, with showers/thunder storms approaching tomorrow. I plan on taking advantage of the cooler temps and making some bread, cookies, and perhaps some cupcakes (have leftover frosting that needs to go).
