Cloudy Saturday

I'm so happy that the weather is a bit cooler today. We haven't needed to run our air conditioning, and we're approaching the break even between solar production & energy consumption, which is fabulous. We installed solar primarily because we knew we wanted to install air conditioning, and the cost of power here is incredible.

As always, we are happy it's the weekend. :-) Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish today:

  1. Make a menu
  2. Go to Costco, the produce stand, & the grocery store
  3. Work out
  4. Take Nick for a practice ride to his middle school. There is no bus service, we are 3 miles away, and it's on busy road. There are bike lanes, but he doesn't have much experience road biking
  5. Return overdue books to the library
  6. Sell our train table
  7. Clean the house
  8. We are having friends over at 4:00 for a barbecue & were supposed to swim. But, probably too cloudy for that today. 
Here's our menu for the week ahead:
  • Friday - I made naan bread pizzas. Adults had pesto & fresh mozzarella, kids had red sauce, cheddar & meatballs
  • Saturday - M is grilling burgers & corn, I'll make a nectarine/mozzarella/basil salad that tastes like summer. For dessert, I'm thinking of ice cream or perhaps strawberry shortcake
  • Sunday - Chicken curry
  • Monday - The plan was for leftover pizzas, but the troops ate too many, so I may have to whip up more
  • Tuesday - leftover burgers
  • Wednesday - leftover curry
  • Thursday - any remaining leftover items, or tacos
  • Friday - TBD
That's it for us today. What are you up to? What's on your menu this week?
