So, last week went pretty well.  I loved having a plan! We tried a few new dishes and the end results were awesome! I made baguette bread that came out great! We saved one of the loaves for another meal and made it into garlic bread! We made homemade pizza and everyone in the family loved it. I really loved that we weren’t doing the “what’s for dinner game” every afternoon. I especially loved that we didn’t go out to eat once – so much cheaper and healthier.

It wasn’t all perfect though. I didn’t read the recipe for the pizza dough all the way through so we ended up with WAY too much dough.  I found a recipe for bread where you could use pizza dough and tried it out. That didn’t turn out so great – it burned on the bottom but we’ll try it again someday.  Also, we made that awesome overnight french toast bake on Saturday night for Sunday morning, but hubby and I had a miscommunication and it ended up sitting on the counter all night instead of the fridge. So, that was out. We ended up making easy appetizer food for lunch – pizza rolls and buffalo bites. At least we had that in the freezer.
