My mother cooked one day last week. It was the first whole meal that she had cooked after being in the hospital for 4 months, and about 2 more months recuperating at my house. She made Goulash. All her grandkids always ask for her to make this. She usually puts peas in it, as well, but didn’t this time. She was really tired after cooking, but her first meal was a success.
I don’t usually cook for breakfast. I do like to keep french toast and pancakes in the freezer for easy breakfasts. This day, I wanted some extra protein, so I make a cheddar cheese omelet. Yum!
I used five pounds of hamburger to make taco meat. We used some that night, and I put two bags in the freezer. I love freezer cooking!
Some of us like to have taco salads instead of a taco. My daughter always has tortilla chips on hers.
I made Homemade Taco Sauce last week. It had been a while since I had made some. It’s good on the tacos, and very good on the taco salads.
This week is a very busy week for me. It’s vacation Bible school week at our church. I have to be at church at 5 every night, Sunday through Wednesday, to work in the kitchen. I am planning easy meals for the beginning of the week. I will make everything earlier in the day. If it needs to be warmed up, my older daughter and mother and warm it up in the microwave.
Hopefully, I survive this busy VBS week and have enough energy to cook Thursday and Friday!
