Meal Planning




It's been a while since I have done a meal planning/What's for dinner post.  Once we found out we had orders to move halfway across the country, it kinda put a whole lot of stuff on hold.  We've now been here for just under a month and slowly but surely, we are getting things in order and falling into what resembles a semblance of normality.  This includes back to making wonderful meals for the family.   And I have to admit, I am so happy with the new kitchen (even if it has an electric stove range rather than gas)..   I have so much more counter and shelf space, even if it has taken a bit of time to figure out what the best places for pots, pans and kitchen gadgets should be.

I'll start doing the weekly posts of our meals, but for now, here are just a few of the meals we've enjoyed in the last few weeks, including some take out/restaurant dinners, because sometimes you need a night off from cooking.

Time to Explore

Saturday we ventured out off of base and did something besides shop at Walmart. Less than 30 miles up the road from where we live in the desert is the Lincoln National Forest.  A perfect place for us to spend many days exploring and hiking and just doing outdoorsy stuff.  

For this adventure, we took a trip up to Sunspot to see the Sunspot Solar Observatory, which is the home of the Dunn Solar Telescope. While we were there chatting with the women working the visitors center, they told us about a little waterfall to visit on our way back down the mountain, which we of course had to see.

Settling In (Wordless Wednesday)

Slowly but surly, we are getting thru all the (what seems like 200) boxes that came with us from Edwards.  My garage looks like an explosion at the moment but thankfully today is "bulk trash" day, so we were able to put tons of empty broken down boxes at the street to get rid of those that have already been unpacked.

With moving boxes comes packing paper.  This is without a doubt the worst part of the unpacking process.  Poor Kenny was heartbroken that I was dealing with paper instead of paying attention to him.

Almost done setting up the home gym.  Sadly, my rower screen is no longer working (and I've only had it for a year now).. We put in a claim with the TMO, so hopefully we will get the full value of the machine so that I can either have the screen repaired or replaced.
