Weekly Menu 5/6 - 5/11


Boxes, boxes and more boxes. If the way to save yourself from a Zombie Apocalypse was to surround yourself with boxes and more boxes full of your stuff, I'm proud to say Tom and I would definitely be survivors.

Moving day is quickly approaching and believe me, I am more than ready to get this show on the road. I don't want to look at any more boxes. I want everything unpacked and resting in its new home. I want an extra hour and 10 minutes a day of my life back that I've currently lost to commuting. I want to put gas in my car on payday and not need to refill it until the next payday! I want to say "yes!" when one of my friends calls and asks me to do something instead of determining if I can really afford the extra gas money and if I have an extra two hours to add into my visit just to cover my commute. I don't want a litter box in my bathroom or cat food in my bedroom anymore. I want to wake up at my current time (5:30 am) and be able to exercise, shower, pack my lunch and still make it into work before 8 am. (Doing that now would mean I'd need to get up around 4 am. The SUN isn't even up at 4 am most days!) I want to read a recipe that calls for a completely random ingredient and be in a 15 minute drive of 10 different groceries stores that all carry said completely random ingredient!

I will miss the crab cakes, pizza place and the gelato shop. I will miss that I'm 5 minutes away from a quaint little small town with neat stores. I will miss the 2 hour drive to the beach. I will miss the lack of people at the movie theater even for new releases. I will miss that I'm 15 minutes from PA and 15 minutes from DE in a cute little part of MD that MD forgot. I will miss that Black Friday shopping at the Walmart here is like a regular Saturday for most Walmart stores.

I do think we'll move back at some point. I do like it here and I hope we can get back here before it gets too expensive or changes too much, but we'll see.

This is the last real week of cooking anything. Next week, although we're not moving until Saturday is going to mostly consist of whatever is leftover in the fridge or whatever can be made with very limited ingredients and cooking utensils.

Sunday - Shrimp Bisque

Monday - Asiago Chicken Pasta

Tuesday - Out for Tom's Birthday!

Wednesday - Ham, Corn and Potato Hash

Thursday - Burgers and Fries 

Friday - to be determined
