Hot Pretzels here!

When the kids get home from school, immediately there is "I'm hungry!"
Today I saw this recipe for Hot Buttered pretzels.
Recently, I purchased those frozen pretzels that you warm in the microwave and the kids loved them. I only bought them because they were on sale, plus I had a good coupon so I paid somewhere around 50 cents for the package.
Right now I have homemade pretzels in the oven, I hope they taste as good as they smell! I wil post a pic if I have a chance before they are eaten!

The Plan

Today's plan was to head to target to pick up some necessities, but I've decided that it can wait. I know that I have some paper towels stashed somewhere, and if not, I have plenty of tea towels around.
After 3 days of Halloween festivities plus the mad dash to school on this Monday morning with backpacks, lunches and a saint costume, I don't feel like leaving the house. Thankfully, it's easy to look like a saint if you drape a couple sheets over the school uniform. I have no idea how we arrived to school on time.
Dinner tonight will consist of something made with leftover chicken. I'm thinking chopped chicken with avocado sandwiches. Basically I chop up cooked chicken, and mix it with a little mayo, shredded carrot, chopped celery, mashed avocado, seasoning, and have it on toast. Something all 3 kids eat and something fast since we have swim practice tonight.
The leftover chicken was from Balsamic Onion Chicken that I made yesterday for a good dinner prior to trick-or-treating and overloading on candy.
Meal planning for the week, Wed-Tue, begins tomorrow. I base my meal plan on the sales at local grocery stores and since the flyers come out on Tuesday, meal plans begin on Wednesday.
