We’re bracing for a winter storm here – the grocery store has been cleaned out – there were no chickens, very little milk and bread – it was insane.
I worked on my menu plan for this week as we drove home from visiting the grandparents. We passed all sorts of power trucks and tree trucks headed north in anticipation of overtime and extra work when the storm hits.
The kids’ school has already been canceled and SuperMan’s work has already canceled as well. I guess I will be the only one working tomorrow.
Given the cold temps we’re going to have, I’m planning to do some comfort food cooking this week. SuperMan has asked for some brothy soups so that he can sip the warm broth from a thermos while he is working later in the week.
Here’s my plan:
- Beef Stew
- French Onion Soup
- Pasta Fagioli Soup
- Country style chicken & rice (crock pot)
- Individual Shepherd’s pies
- Balsamic glazed steaks w/ twice baked potato
- Udon soup
- Baked chicken (if I get out to buy a chicken – since they had none today)
