What's For Dinner {Oct 28th}

This is one busy week!  So glad for freezer meals (homemade!) and restaurant gift cards to get us through!

Tonight is our annual Pumpkin Night and Vince made his amazing chili last night in order to be ready because of our busy day.  That's okay though because it's even better on the second day!  I also made a pumpkin roll last night for a special dessert for our Pumpkin Night.  We're looking forward to carving our pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, and watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"!

Last week I mentioned buying a couple of freezer meals at the store to help me get through this recovery season and ease getting back into the cooking routine.  They did help in that respect, I suppose, but they were so disappointing.  I can't imagine why anyone would buy them for their family.  The two that I bought ( a pasta dish and an Asian chicken dish) were really not even enough for me and my husband--he wanted seconds!  So not only are they ridiculously expensive, I had to supplement them.  Just not worth it for me!  Only if I were a single woman could I even justify buying them--and even at that cooking from scratch is just SO much better and cheaper.

From now on I'll just make my own freezer meals;)

Here's what's cooking for dinner this week:

Monday:  Vince's Chili

Tuesday:  Family Night at Chick-Fil-A

Wednesday:  Tostadas

Thursday: Chicken Spaghetti (from my freezer!) with Salad

Friday:  Pizza Night

Saturday:  {snacks/leftovers}

We've been SO bad at buying frozen meals in the past. My aim is to learn to cook well enough that I don't have to anymore! :) They can be to stodgy and gross. :(
