#Menu #Monday #Food #Planning

Yesterday:

Meatloaf: QV, my husband, made two last month. We froze one. Brown gravy. Roasted butternut squash and golden potatoes: sprinkled with Italian dressing mix. Crescent rolls baked in cupcake tins with fresh blueberries and honey, topped with whipped cream.

Leftover meatloaf makes lunchbox sandwiches.

Monday:

Crockpot sweet and sour pineapple pork chops, green and wax beans and carrots over rice.

Tuesday:

Taco pie. Spicy ground turkey in a mashed potato pie crust topped with fresh onions, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and sour cream.

Wednesday:

Crockpot Italian chicken thighs over pasta with rolls. Broccoli. Because Wednesdays are spaghetti night. I have no idea where that rule came from because it wasn't my mother's habit.

Leftovers are frozen for a future meal.

Thursday:

Cabin stew with biscuits. Ground beef, black-eyed peas, beefy onion mix, diced tomatoes, mixed vegetables and red wine. Travels well and is hearty and tasty.

Leftovers are frozen for a future meal.

Friday:

Crescent roll pizza pockets. Tonight is pizza night but my father doesn't like our local pizza places. I made pizza pockets last Saturday in Pillsbury pizza dough and they were a big hit. The dough was annoying though so I'm trying crescent rolls this time.

Saturday:

Bread fish and steak fries. Baby peas. Too-Tired-To-Cook Night.

Imagine Dragons - the band

One of my favorite bands (I do like my dragons):

Imagine Dragons

Demons


When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold
When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale
I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide
No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
At the curtain’s call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl
So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made
Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth
No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go
Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Radioactive


Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa
I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We'll paint it red to fit right in
Whoa
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
All systems go, the sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive

imagine dragons
















dragons are real
i know
they inhabit
my mind and as we all know
perception is all

there is no difference
between
waking and dreaming
pinch me doesn’t work

ants crawling

tiny feet scratching
hair follicles

cardboard box
edges held tight
in fists
as the wind whips
past ears
falling
flipping
flying

so free

and boom

the ground like granite
keeps it real
