As I'm sitting here, I can hear the ice ping-ing against the window. The candles are on the counter, bread has been baked, and my poor husband braved the store for batteries and eggs. We are trying to be as prepared as we can for what the weather-types are calling the worst storm in years.
When I was relaying the projected snow and ice totals to Emelie, she suggested that we just declare martial law and be done with it. Later she was reading the details of the advisory and said she just kept hearing the Debbie Downer song running through her head. She keeps me laughing!
The reality is that the menu plan below might be a work of fiction. If we lose power (as every news outlet is saying we will - love the optimism!), we'll be dining on granola, sandwiches, and baked beans from a can. Praise God it's all sitting in our pantry!
Also a work of fiction is the list of our week's activities. Horse Judging is already off the books for tomorrow. I suspect more cancellations will come as we reenact some Little House on the Prairie winter scenes.
This week we MIGHT be enjoying:
Monday (4-H Leader's meeting) - Homemade Pizza
Tuesday (Horse Judging) - Chicken Broccoli Divan, Rice, Cherry Bread
Wednesday (AWANA, 4-H Aerospace) - Chicken Patty Sandwiches, Popcorn
Thursday (Homeschool Group, Karate, 4-H Rabbit)- Stumpf Chili, Tamale Pie (in the freezer)
Friday (Bible Study)
Saturday - Hamburger Stroganoff, Chocolate Cherry Dessert
Our menus for past years can be found at our website. Breakfast menu is here; lunch menu is here.
