In accordance with my plan to avoid the grocery store and use up what we have, I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight. I had part of a large bag of meatballs in the freezer, enough for tonight and still enough left in the freezer for another dinner. I sautéed a handful of frozen peppers and onions left in a freezer bag then added the defrosted meatballs (pre-cooked). I then added a jar of Bertolli’s pasta sauce. I have lots of various types of pasta in the pantry so I am starting with the opened packages. I had about 1/2 a package of linguini which was plenty for the three of us, plus enough for David’s lunch tomorrow. I also opened a can of organic corn (not my favorite veggie but David likes it and I had seven cans of corn), and served these with green salad and garlic bread made from a partial loaf of French bread from the freezer.
After dinner I put leftovers in a divided/covered plate for David’s lunch tomorrow. Chris didn’t eat the lunch I sent today because one of the guys brought deer chili and he had that instead. And I still had more than enough meatballs in sauce for my lunch tomorrow — I’ll probably make a meatball sandwich out of it.
I haven’t been to the store but David ran out of the Raisin Bran he eats every morning and picked some up at Braums last night after his class. While he was there he also bought a half gallon of milk and a loaf of bread.
I haven’t decided what to make for dinner tomorrow yet but since it’s the night I have choir rehearsal and am not here for dinner, I’ll try to come up with something easy for the guys to do or something in the crockpot. Stay tuned…
And now I think I might take a short nap. We are meeting friends at 10 p.m. at the bowling alley for “Rock and Bowl”. They turn the lights off (the alleys are lit so you can see to bowl) and play rock music. We will no doubt be the only *old* people there.
Oh, btw, last night David wasn’t here so I just sautéed some frozen tilapia filets for Chris and myself, and served these with baked potatoes and a green salad.
