    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    The winter weather is blowing in and I have to figure out a menu. I will make the following this week:
    - beef veg soup
    - chicken stir fry wraps
    - stuffed cabbage
    - chicken enchiladas
    - breaded chicken & onion rings

    I'll make an apple pie, possibly cookies. If I find marked down italian/french loaves, I'll crisp them up for the stuffed cabbage.

    Sigh. I wish ham would go on sale here. Maybe soon/Thanksgiving? Thankful that eggs and chicken and ground beef still holding steady on sales. They did not have apples on sale like they usually would at this time. Maybe I should check out the new store that opened over the summer, have not been there yet - Sprouts.

    This week, not necessarily in this order, subject to change:

    -- sloppy joes, baked beans
    -- chicken, baked potatoes, broccoli
    -- broccoli soup, beef empanadas
    -- lamb kibbe/pita sandwiches, zucchini, hummus
    -- chicken, veg?
    -- fish, veg?
    -- chili and/or pigs in blankets


    I have only seen small packages of ham on sale, pre-sliced stuff. But it is too much salt and fat for DH to have regularly so we don't get large ones any more.

    Sprouts can be wonderful, sometimes. IMO it's like Whole Foods was 25 years ago, fresh organic and lots of specialty vegetarian, gluten-free, non-gmo, etc without being expensive. But some stuff just IS expensive. I used to love the bulk goods, but it's all pre-packed now due to covid. The produce prices are always good. Don't care for their breads. They have good sales on cold cuts and cheese, but often sell out in my area.

    The ham was from last holiday season and I haven't seen ham on sale either, come to think of it. I may make breakfast burritos with it for dinner if dh brings home potatoes. A casserole will need more ingredients, which i do not have right now.
