This week started out with several phone calls asking me to sub this week and I'm so grateful. School was cancelled on Monday due to the weather, but I was still able to work at three days this week.
Our Internet is on a data plan and therefore we have to be careful to not use it all before the end of the month. Google Chrome has added an extension for a text only browser to avoid using up all the data for the month. It's called Text Mode if you are interested.
If you are a Shop Your Way rewards member from Sears or Kmart, be sure to check your account to see if you have any money to spend. I did that last weekend and had enough in my account to buy this free pan. It's a air fryer for the oven. I came home and made some baked potato fries in it and it worked really well. Best of all they gave it to me for free.
We have not eaten out anytime since before Christmas. In fact I couldn't even tell you when the last time we ate out even happened. I've made dinner every night. Here is our menu from the last week.
1-5-2018 - Chicken Pot Pie
1-6-2018 - Pedernales Potatoes, Corn
1-7-2018 - Smoked Sausage, Green Beans & Onions, Potatoes
The Cream Cheese Chicken Chili was a new recipe for me, but turned out to be a keeper. Next time I will add a can of tomatoes instead of the tomatoes with chilies to keep the heat down some.
Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
1 - 12 ounce can chicken, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
4 ounces cream cheese
Rinse and drain black beans and to pan.
Drain corn and chicken and add to pan.
Add canned tomatoes, but do not drain.
Add spices, stir well and heat through.
Add cream cheese an stir until melted.
Serve over rice.
I've not been grocery shopping lately either, so that is what we'll be doing this weekend, weather permitting. There is possibly bad weather in the works for Tennessee today and that will determine if we are wanting to get out of the house this weekend.
