#atozchallenge : R is for Recipe

Sometimes I am totally at a loss for what to make for dinner.  I've started making lists and then making definite decisions on what we will eat during the week. 


The recipes shown here are the ones I am planning for next week for the people in my home.  I do not get super fancy because the childrens will not eat fancy.  I don't know what days we are going to eat things yet, I have to consult with the calendar and see what's going on which days.


Flatbread Pizza w/ Caesar Salad


Such an easy dinner idea!  I'm simple with the salad.  I buy the bag with all the ingredients already in it.  The flat bread all you need is the flatbread, pizza sauce and whatever toppings you desire.


Shrimp Scampi and Angel Hair Pasta


My oldest son hates fried shrimp, but loves shrimp scampi.


BLTs


On this one, I am going to take out the T and replace it with an A for Avocados.  I use Texas Toast to make my sandwiches and grill them up all tasty like. 


Meatball Sandwiches


Another cheap dinner and another use for the leftover pasta sauce.  I get a large French loaf and halve it.  I toast it, then put the sauce and meatballs on and put the cheese on top, then toast it again. 


Breakfast for Dinner


Breakfast for dinner will be using bacon for another meal.  My plan is waffles (I kept seeing chicken and waffle recipes but that didn't sound good to me, so I narrowed it down to just waffles), bacon and eggs.  Yum.  So simple and also another cheap meal. 


What are some of your favorite meals and recipes?  Link them in the comments so I can take a look!

#atozchallenge : Q is for Quixotic


Quixotic.  Q works are hard.  I think the one I use most often is question.  It’s one of those phrases that I use a million times a day in my job.  People tell long elaborate stories and then I ask them….so what is your question?  They tell me stories but fail to give me their problem I need to help them solve.  I like direct and to the point.  I am not a mind reader, please just ask the question or tell me what you are needing assistance with.  Maybe I should have written the blog post on the word question.  Haha.  Anywho, back to quixotic.  I decided on this work because it’s fun to say.

Quixotic means unpractical and unrealistic and exceedingly idealistic.  This does not describe me at all.  I try to live in the practical and realistic world. 

But let’s take a minute and think of an unpractical and exceedingly idealistic life I could think of. 

This first thing: money!  We either wouldn’t need it in my world or I would have so much of it that I didn’t have to worry about it and I wouldn’t have to work.  I could spend my days vacationing with my family.  My family and I would travel all over the world with my never ending funds of money.  I would own a place for all the abandoned cats in my area.  I would have a staff to provide them exceedingly good care and the cats would live in cat heaven with all the toys and things to jump on at all times. 

I think I would still have my house.  I love my house.  But I would make all the improvements I have been wanting to do on them whenever I want.  I wouldn’t have to budget and plan, because I already have all that money at my finger tips.

So in my quixotic world, I wouldn’t work, I would travel all the time and I would offer a safe haven to all the abandoned cats in the area.

What would you do in your quixotic world?

I am pretty satisfied with my world right now, but it doesn’t hurt to think unpractically at times.

#atozchallenge : P is for Personality Types

When I was looking for a Pen Pal on Reddit, I saw a theme.  Everyone listed their personality types.  Why?  I didn’t get it.  Also, everyone is an introvert on there.  Except me.  I decided to take three different online personality tests online and I got three different answers.  Two of the traits I got each time, but the others were different.  My two traits that were the same on all of them were: Extrovert and Judging.  I got Thinking on two of them and also Sensing. 
What does this all mean?  I have no idea. 
What do you get when you take one of the personality tests?
I've posted my results below.
