The Great Dallas Snow/Ice - in of 2011 - Menu

A little grocery shopping back story -

I went to the grocery store on Thursday.

I made fun of the people cramming their baskets full on Monday night.

I was very very sad by the following Thursday

Day 1:

Homemade pancakes
Homemade Tomato Soup
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Huge batch of Homemade Crockpot apple sauce (which by the way - will post a how to - so good)
Chicken and Rice Casserole (that I was hoping to use for leftovers the next day but was devoured in one day)
Desserts made - homemade apple cake from scratch
Brownies made from a brownie mix

(only substitution for the day - milk used instead of buttermilk in the pancakes)

Day 2:

Leftover pancakes and applesauce
Ravioli (from a can - 3 cans worth in fact - the children are eating me out of house and home)
2 packages of frozen corn and the last of the applesauce (I used an entire HUGE bag of apples - gone)
Frozen taquitos, chicken nuggets, leftover tomato soup
Desserts made - coca cola cake

(substitution for the day - the last of the chocolate almond milk for milk in the cake)

Day 3:

Smoothies for breakfast thanks to the gallon and a half of skim milk left on my front porch by a BFF's hubby (incidentally - Tom Thumb was basically out of milk after two days of the ice storm - he had a choice of whole, skim, or lactose free - they were also out of bananas etc - trucks could not get in)
Also - 1 package of Jimmy Dean precooked sausage found at the bottom of the fridge unopened - SCORE - this caused much excitement when discovered.
Last two frozen pizzas from outside chest freezer
Last of the yogurt sticks
4 of the final 9 cuties (clementine oranges)

DADDY HOME - Chili's for dinner. Can I just add at some point that someone is a marketing genius over there at Chili's because I started to see free kids meal coupons floating around on Facebook at 11 and by 6 that place was PACKED!

Ha! Chili's are geniuses. Glad you survived.
