Downtime - Whether I Like It Or Not!

I'm feeling severely annoyed by a few things right now and feel the need to share!  First, my bobbin case got a crack and won't allow me to sew.  Second, I couldn't find one in town so I had to order it, and it's taking forever!  I've got diapers to sew for a cousin's new baby, a top to make for Spring Top Week and a partially finished romper that's going in my Etsy shop.  I get all anxious when my machine isn't at my disposal but it's much worse when I've got things on my to-do list!  And finally, I'm all-of-a-sudden sick this morning (feels like another sinus infection?), and this is after a day and a half of severe and unexplained nausea.  I'm going to the doctor later, hopefully to get a shot of some super powered antibiotics!

By taking Dramamine yesterday I was able to fight my nausea off long enough to grocery shop.  I really had no choice, we had a freezer full of meat and nothing else!  Here is my meal list for the next two weeks...

Spaghetti and Salads - Actually made this last night using a combo of beef, pork and veal, with herbs from my (not dead!) garden.  Turned out so so good!

Shredded Pork Tacos - Zack's request this week.  Pork is cooking in the crock pot as I type this.  Making refried beans and maybe Spanish rice to go with it later.

Spanish Lasagna - To use leftover pork, layered with black beans, rice, tomatoes, cheese and tortillas.

Scallops - In garlic/white wine sauce over linguini.  Easy, light and yummy meal!

Beef Stew - In biscuit bowls...the opposite of light and easy, but always yummy!

Grilled Chicken on Salads - To make up for all that pork and beef, lol.

Tuna Pasta Salad - Great for easy lunches the next day. 

Tilapia - With lemon and dill, white rice and green beans.

Pork Loin Medallions - Cut to 1" thick and pounded flatter, with spicy mustard marinade.  Will probably have brown rice with them.

Steaks/Other Meat on the Grill - Because we've got tons in the freezer and the weather is perfect for evenings outside!

That's my bare minimum of 10 meals for 2 weeks, the other 4 days will be leftovers, take-out or sandwiches.  I'm now off to sit on the couch, lay down and then sit around some more!
