Finally, some of the promised pictures of Olivia’s Butterfly I wrote about just before Christmas. I mentioned I made one for my DD in Red Heart’s Plush Yarn, and then I made her a scarf with the butterfly design on each end as well. The pictures are not the greatest, and she’s not such a willing model any more – but here they are none the less!

 

Packing a Lunch January 11, 2011

Lunch!

Well, Hubby is off to work for another week. The only way I can ensure he eats semi-healthy with the $15 a day per-diem he gets for working out-of-town is to send him with food as well. Seriously, the only other option for him eating 3 meals a day on that at all would be a dollar menu – and that’s not particularly healthy fare. At least, his choices on them are not!

This week, he’s got 2 containers each of turkey soup, venison stew, baked ziti, chicken with creamy basil sauce, and the tenderloin dinner we had for today as well. He also has pasta & sauce, mac&cheese, several baked potatos, tuna fish,peanut butter and jelly,┬ábread, fruit, and a variety of canned goods to balance out the meals he cooks on the road.

During the week, when we cook, we’ll set aside plates in the freezer for him to take to work for the following week. So far, it’s working out fairly well. Of course, there are some meals we’ll have during the week that just don’t freeze very well, so we’ll double up – so to speak, on others.

This little guy is visiting with his Dad, my brothers room-mate until March. He stays with us while Dad works. I think the hat suits him perfectly. He seems to love it. Of course, he’s only 3 and really loves it when his t-shirts have the same characters as his “Big Boy” pants… Still, he’s awfully happy with it, and it is really warm. Plus it matches his coat. ‘Nuff said.
