There has been nothing to blog about for the past 7 days (as we haven't been up to much and we've been shrouded in fog) but there will be TOO MUCH to blog about for the next little while, and I will be too busy to even think about blogging. You should see my kitchen right now, it is quite frightful and not at all like the photo above. If I had the energy, I would definitely post a photo for you all to see, but I don't, so I won't. I am preparing food ahead of time to have on hand when everyone is here. I made breakfast casseroles and popped those in the freezer yesterday. Today I cooked up a huge pot of chili (just the meat and beans was 4.5 lbs.) I made two large pans of meatballs to be later mixed with my mom's sweet and sour sauce and served over rice. I made and froze brown rice so my rice maker would be free to make white rice last minute. The Mr. likes brown and I like white! There are ingredients for desserts spread all over the counter (gluten free of course- peanut butter balls and peanut butter cookies.) I poached seven chicken breasts, shredded them and froze them for chicken enchiladas. (To poach, cover all chicken with water, heat to boiling, boil two minutes, cover, remove from heat and let sit 20 minutes, drain, slice or shred as needed.) I don't think we'll starve when my family is visiting!
We have a three bedroom house, so everyone gets to stay here. The more the merrier I say! I think the most people that have ever stayed overnight at our house is 14. Seven will be easy compared to that! At least the washer and dryer won't have to work so hard in order to supply everyone with clean towels. :)
Well, see you after the break!
