Call is . . . going (I have maintained a reasonably good attitude – helps that I have a lovely resident I am working with!).
The election counts are . . . moving forward. I am feeling cautiously optimistic.
We are on tropical storm watch over here. I am considering a very early grocery store trip. I am not excited about driving to the hospital in this weather but I have been ‘borrowing’ our SUV recently and do feel a bit safer in that (as compared to my Prius).
Aaaaand G was up at 5:20 this morning. I don’t understand – before the time change she was often sleeping until 7a. WHY is she now 100 minutes ahead even after bedtime has been adjusted!? I remember this happening with other kids and I honestly find it incredibly stressful (losing control of the one part of my day I had control over). #(*$$@&##. I may try to see if her school is willing to limit her nap to 1 hr.
But enough about all that! I thought perhaps I would publish our upcoming week’s menu. Hopefully we won’t lose power (rendering our groceries useless and taking away the power to our oven/stovetop). That would be quite 2020, wouldn’t it.
Tonight – Probably sushi takeout.
Sunday – Josh really wants to try the 4000-year old Babylonian lamb stew from this month’s Milk Street Mag. It has turnips. And the meat is cooked for ~4 hours. I am not convinced the kids will eat it, but I guess it’s worth a shot! Will make some grain for side plus maybe some roasted carrots.
Monday – Chicken and cauliflower tikka masala with rice (from Dinner Illustrated)
Tuesday – leftovers
Wednesday – tacos! (We typically make ours using ground turkey + those easy El Paso taco kits)
Thursday – leftovers/taco salads
Friday – vegetarian chili mac (raw veggies/hummus on the side)
