Dropped Katie off at school then came to the clinic and worked until time to pick Katie up from school. Now that we have two vehicles again I can take the girls home. Katie didn't need me for homework so I did a little laundry and started prepping a supper for us.
I made a great tasting pot roast with gravy. I also made biscuits and rice to spill the gravy over on. I also cooked down some green beans to go on the side. We had some left over cheese shell macaroni and so I nuked that for anyone interested. We turned out having a nice big meal last night.
I read Katie about a half a chapter of the Hobbit. Gina got home about 7:00ish and so I heated her up a plate. She woofed it down but opted out on a second helping of the gravy. She instead went the honey route as she finished of the biscuits. Gina likes desert and I rarely buy or make deserts. Usually honey or strawberry preserves on a remaining biscuit will satisfy her.
We have to eat out a good bit since we started the business. Home cooking is better but not always time for it. I've noticed the past few months how restaurant food is getting more expensive. I used to count on taking my kids to CiCi's to feed little tummies but no more. They've gone up on their prices. Last month I went to Ryan's and they went up. I spent just under 10.00 for their bar and that was having it with water only. I went to Shoney's recently and had their bar. I ordered a tea to go along with it and it cost me just under 12.00. Throw in a tip and I can't afford to eat lunch there anymore. Pruett's Barbeque drive-through went up drastically. Remember their dollar barbeques....no more. They've more then doubled their prices too! At least they seem to have added a little more meat on their buns for the price increase. Everywhere I go the prices have gone up. I've started keeping a folder in my car with coupons. If I have to eat out, I need to go to the places offering the coupons. We've been trying to keep sandwich fixin's at the office.
