Today was a shopping day and while I spent more than I intended, I got some good stuff and I decided to prepare some meals ahead of time to stick in the crock pot later on. Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken, Island Chicken, Crock Pot Maple Dijon Chicken, Crock Pot Orange Chicken, Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken, & Slow Cooker Jambalaya are the ones I tried- That was six and I found two other I want to try but will need to make some room in the freezer before I go buy more meat. Tonight we are just having teriyaki chicken legs (or nachos? Will ask Mattie which he prefers for tonight) and whatever veggies I grab out of the fridge, but sometime this week I’ll pick one of the crock pot meals to try out. I’m not sure which one to pick, so maybe will let Mattie choose that one.

A lot of the veggies are already cut up and in bags in the freezer for the crock pot meals. The onions, celery, canned pineapple, a lot of the garlic, mushrooms and bell pepper disappeared fast in prepping the meals. I used up the last of my olive oil in the bags so need to put that on my list for next week before I forget. I’m also noticing pretty soon we will have every type of vinegar there is in the kitchen. Just means I need to find more recipes that use the stuff I guess.
We start the new season of pool league tonight, and I heard there is a new team playing this season. I have no idea who they are, but I kinda hope they are not very good… LOL! Maybe I’d win a few more this time around then. I want to win 18 games this season. I won 6 my first season, 12 my second, so why not 18 my third?
I ordered the pattern for my Halloween costume for this year so just waiting for it to arrive. Then I will be picking up fabrics the start of next month for it. The costume was picked to fit the theme of a party, and I think it will do nicely. I also have a bid in on another pattern for a really cute jumpsuit I want to try making with a few modifications.
Not a lot else to say today. Its hot as hell and has been all week, which is really a kick in the ass because its freaking September. It should be cooling down, not having one last hot hurrah. At 7am it was chilly but it was 90° by 10am. Blergh!
