Happy Homemaker In Texas

Each week I join Sandra at Family Corner for her party
Happy Homemaker 
Sandra provides the prompts-I add a few of my own

The Weather
 Spring time in Texas it doesn't get any better! Gorgeous sun.
And no rain.  At least for now.  We can either need a boat or a fan.  It's always fun!

Right Now I  Am
 Listening to the Cowboy download music for church tomorrow.
I get a sneak peek ☺
Wanna a peek?
A little Crowdar his fairly new one Forgiven.  
A little B-Shoc. a good rapper
Some Tim Hawkins
Just to let you know if case you can't figure this out. My husband is the Chaplain at a boys prison.  They are 13-18 our music is a little out there!

On my reading pile
 The same pile from last week.  I need to get on these.

In the kitchen
I started a new series called Sunday Supper.  Tomorrow 
I am writing about Church Ladies Cookbooks.  I have a big collection that I will share.  Randomly while I was writing this post I decided to see what I could find on Pinterest.  Wow.  There are tons of pins.  
This one caught my eye because my son and his family live in Missour!

On the menu
A new plan the Cowboy helped me plan the menu this week!
Monday-Ribs, One Potato Salad, Pintos
Tuesday-Beef Enchiladas, Rice maybe some Guac if I can find good Avocados
Wednesday- Tuna Casserole w/ Peas, Salad and Bread
Thursday-Pork Tenderloin, Stuffing, Green Beans
Friday- Leftovers or whatever we can dig out or find on sale. It's always a surprise!

Last weeks menu-What Worked-What Didn't
Everything worked but I didn't keep up with the menu. 
Starting with my planned menu . . . 
Monday-cup of leftover gumbo from the weekend
                    Hamburgers and a few fries
 My fault I forgot we were suppose to take the MIL to Cracker Barrel  
It really was a yummy meal and a huge blessing because I had a long hard day at work                  

Tuesday- Taco Tuesday
We did have the burgers and fries we planned for last night

Wednesday- Sounds like a good night for chicken
Again off track.  Pizza tonight because we bought dough at Trader Joe's on Monday and have to cook it!
Updated Saturday.  Pizza was a disaster.  The dough didn't cook properly and I spilled it in the oven.  We were so hungry waiting so long for it that we pulled it out after the fire was over.
I guess you could call it brick oven pizza!  No photo's it wasn't pretty.
Thursday -kid friendly Pizza (make your own) No kid he was sick.
Planning on pushing Tacos to tonight.  Have to use up leftover lettuce from 
Friday- Steak,baked potatoes and salad
I have the steak in the freezer, potatoes on the shelf and salad is easily picked up on the way home from work.  Maybe 1 out of 5 this week!

In the garden
Everything came out of the greenhouse today.  At least for awhile.
I did put the peas in the ground.  And I planted Impatiens and Zinnia's. 
I have the bed prepared for the green beans.  A few changes to the plot/plan I'll share in another post.  I was able to spend the day 
outside and watched the sun leave shady areas.
