It's funny, last night my boyfriend asked me what I'd planned for dinner, I told him Chicken Parmesan. He said "I feel like we should be eating more healthy." I offered to make him a marinated chicken breast baked in foil with some rice and green beans. He said okay. Ten minutes later he said he wanted Chicken Parm! Lol...we both LOVE our comfort food. Since I write so much about food and recipes, I'm going to make separate pages for the actual recipe and just add the link to my blog post! I'll put an index on the right side bar for easy reference. I'll try to make pages for all of the previous recipes too. Blogger is quite buggy of late, so if anyone notices any funny business, can you let me know?
I mentioned yesterday that it was bitterly cold outside and look what Jack Frost did to my window! Kind of nice! The sun is very deceiving though!
Do you complain to companies for their sub-par products? I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed the quality of everything nose-diving while the ease of returns sky-rockets. Companies don't care about quality control anymore, they'll just replace it or refund you too easily. When I had my bout of food poisoning a few weeks back, my boyfriend went to the store to get me soda crackers and this was what came out of the box. They might look okay, but they are burned and they smelled and tasted burned too! All 4 sleeves of crackers...so I wrote to Premium Plus and within minutes I got a reply "Send us your address and we'll mail you a coupon for a free box". I responded, "Would you like me to keep the burned crackers to send back to you for quality control?"...8 days later, no reply. At least we didn't waste our money because we'll get a free box, but it left a bad taste in my mouth both figuratively and literally! I do get lots of freebies with a gentle complaint though, so I'm thankful for that. One time all of my garbage bags came in the box unsealed at the bottom...what joy to find out the hard way that your garbage isn't sealed lol...I was pretty upset that day, but Glad sent me a $10 coupon for their products.
The meal planning is done!!! Now today I have my list of ingredients and have to write my shopping list for tomorrow! I'm throwing all caution to the wind and I'm planning meals until the week after Easter...that's 41 meals including a few special days like Easter and our 4-year anniversary! I love challenging myself. I know that I'll have to go out for fresh stuff a few times during the next six weeks, but not having the pressure to drive hours to the big towns to grocery shop makes life so much easier! Now I have to enter all of this into my handy little shopping and menu journal!
