Whew, What a Weekend!

Honestly, I'm pooped!
 
Daughter had lower back surgery the first of this month; so I've been trying to help out as much as possible....while living more than an hour from her. I've made two trips this month to pick up the grand-daughter (giving Mom a break) and have carried frozen meals each time.
 
So, this is a "weekend of cooking" as my grand-daughter was picked up Friday afternoon. So far, in the freezer are large containers stacked...and labeled. The weather is going to be bad this afternoon and early evening...high winds, rain, tornado warning. So, Aidan will be "staying" one more day...and missing a school day tomorrow...because Nana is not driving in this mess. She has 13 days of school left this year...so, I'm not overly worried about missing one day (and it is a no-test day). Yeah...all you teachers go ahead and write me...but, I won't be changing my mind. I'm not driving in this stuff!
 
Anyway, I've been busy cooking Stuffed Pasta Shells with Sauce (3 lg); Cheesy Ranch Noodle Casserole (2 lg); Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole (3 med); Chili (2 lg); Spaghetti Noodle Bake Casserole (2 lg); Beef Stew (1 lg); Broccoli Potato Bacon Cheddar Casserole (2 lg); and Potato Salad. 

I'm considering pumpkin pies and carrot cake...but am too tired to stir anything else. So, they will wait until tomorrow morning...and may magically turn into cupcakes instead. :)

Also, keeping up with registrations for the latest BCQC-1...which has over 80 ladies signed up! I love large groups...they are so much more fun! (and work). But, who is afraid of a little extra work when it comes to crazy quilting! NOT ME! Hugs to all...I'm going to take a nap!

I think you deserve several naps after all that cooking!! Stay safe - hopefully the storm will be a non-event.

Your post made me hungry, just thinking about all the food. Would you share any recipes? cheesy ranch noodle casserole and spaghetti noodle bake casserole sound pretty good.

I don't know any teacher who would expect you to go out in horrible weather to get a child to school, even for a test day! I never would have. I'm glad you are able to help your daughter, and take a little of the burden from her.
