I got most of my recipes from Favorite Recipes: The Costco Way. I owe it all to Sis Sopt... she made me get it a long time ago and it is amazing and fun! Oh, and it was free :)
Sunday night I made Honey-Glazed Chicken Stir-Fry
Everything turned out way good... except for the rice. I added too much dang waster! So, it was super soggy. I'm basically a horrible person... there's a rice shortage!! And here I am, wasting it! So, to not be a completely horrible waster.. we ate it. Pretty nasty. I only threw away 2/3 ish of it....
Monday night I made the easiest thing on Earth... tortellini alfredo. I don't think he can
remember ever having it, because he asked me what it was and he wolfed it down! Probably his favorite of the week.
Tuesday night I went to the Commissary and spent $60 on the next 6 ish meals. We ateCranberry Walnut Salad with a Sweet Poppy Seed Vinaigrette (made by me), which I had to call my brother, Kris, about, because it called for white wine vinegar and I did not know what to do!! But all turned out well. Grandpa liked it, especially because he asked me to put his bleu cheese in it.
Wednesday night he told me he had a request... for grilled cheese and soup! Ugh... I was
trying to be all gourmet and try new things, but Grandpa loves his routines. At least this made him happy.
Thursday night I didn't get off work till 7:15. I felt really bad that he was eating so late, so I just picked up his usual from Wendy's. Horrible.
Friday he told me, if I didn't have anything planned, he was going to pick up salads for him and
me from Wendy's. Bummer. It was fine though, I didn't get off work til after 7, so I just ended up hanging out with friends and eating with them. Horrible.
Last night I made Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup with White Beans (about halfway down the page). It is seriously my new FAVE dish!! It is ridiculously good and easy. My grandpa, however, wasn't too keen on it. Oh well. My mom keeps on reassuring
me that it takes him a while to adapt to new things, and likes his usuals. Oh well. I liked it and so did one of my
Tonight... again.. he just wanted a sandwich (chicken and mayo) with a pickle on the side. What
an easy-to-please man.
Stay tuned for more fast food, gross food, and maybe an occasional good dinner!
Suggestions would be INSANELY appreciated too!
