First of all, this was NOT a favorite. My Tuesday post disappeared! It had to do with me seeing it in my drafts on my WordPress app after it had published and then me trashing the draft. Poof – gone!
So, my post involved my two meal prep lunches this week. I did Buffalo dip stuffed baked potatoes and they were delish!
I topped with green onion, blue cheese, and a little bit of Mexican shredded cheese.
My other lunch was lettuce wraps. You can find lots of variations when you Google ground turkey lettuce wraps. This was not my best batch, but I will make it again I am sure!
Meal prep and good lunches are always a favorite!
So, Jack and Mason went back to college on Monday afternoon. Mason texted me Tuesday morning and said a friend he had seen on Friday while both were wearing masks tested positive. Mason got a PCR test at college and insisted on coming home because he was so worried about his roommate. Mason is about a month past the booster and I assured him that he was fine.
I gave him a home test and it was indeed negative. I convinced him to go back to campus. A day later and he got the PCR negative, too. I mean, I am glad my kids are cautious, but there is such a thing as too much.
It was definitely a favorite that Mason was negative but the drama involved – not a favorite.
Did you order your home tests? I did. Ugh. So over this.
Has anyone wondered about my bathroom project? Well, things have been happening again. We are getting the tile done tonight!
Waiting for my class to join. This person wanted us to see they were reading Harry Potter!
I saw these conversation hearts that are called End the Conversation Hearts. They are wisecracks and kinda mean.
I found them at Fresh Market. I didn’t buy them because I would be tempted.
I did buy this tomato soup there and it is really good. I will buy it again.
I had it for dinner one night and Tom had his favorite Fresh Market corn chowder.
One night I had a Boca cheeseburger.
Do you all know the bread trick? My cookies were not as soft as I like and I stuck a piece of bread in my container and it softened the cookies up.
Over the weekend, Mason wanted to make gluten free cupcakes for a GF friend.
He bought all the supplies and used this:
I took another load of donation bags out of the house this week! 8 bags gone!
I did a Valentine mantel without spending any money.
And, I had one social outing this week. Erica, Elizabeth, and I went to Cultured, our charcuterie place.
We realized it was staying light out so late and ran outside to document it.
I wore my sweater and the employees liked it.
What were your favorites this week? I hope you had many!
