It was extremely busy today but fortunately we had several items in the refrigerator that we could eat for dinner. TJ had a burrito with the remaining meat and beans. That was ideal and filling for him. Paula ate the rest of the beef and barley soup. It warmed her up inside since the weather had gotten colder. I had the rest of the pasta dish that my mother had made for us on Wednesday. It hit the spot for me and filled me up as well. Now that the refrigerator is empty, we can start planning for the next week.

Paula relaxed this morning and went through Cooking Light (October 2012 issue) and chose a variety of recipes for the coming week. I will purchase the ingredients tomorrow and we should be ready for the week.
