The snow really messed me up last week. Bad. The town completely shut down. Even Wal-Mart, dude. I didn't even know that was legal. Anyway, had the town not completely shut down, I still wouldn't have been able to drive my car more than a few feet. I ran out of MEAT, paper towels, baby wipes, tampons, and almost toilet paper. Just keepin' it real here. I am ashamed to say, once Billy even had to eat Ramen noodles. He loved it, I'm sure. We're supposed to get several more inches of snow pooped on us today and tonight and this time i am prepared.
I took a much needed getaway to the big city of Tulsa yesterday with the kid, the dad, and the Billy. Travel trailer living can really get you down. Especially when there's a blizzard outside and no way out. The 65 mile trip took an hour and a half with the icy highways and such, and it seems my dad has lost the ability to drive like a sane person, but we made it and I was able to purchase three more pieces for my Le Creuset collection (at half price. i love you, tjmaxx). Billy also requested 'some of that fish'. My mom and I purchased and prepared some sea bass from the only place with good seafood in the Midwest several weeks ago. I jumped on the opportunity to make something other than fried shrimp and catfish (the only other seafood billy is interested in).
Anyway, here's the plan..
Tonight- Pan-Roasted Sea Bass with Orzo and Spinach (not very Super Bowl-like, I know.)
Monday- PW's Beef Stew with Beer and Paprika
Tuesday- Panko Crusted Chicken Tenders
Wednesday- Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
Thursday- Super Simple Shredded Chicken Tacos
Friday- Garlic and Lemon Pan-Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes
..very chickeny, I know.
