We are out of propane! I'm getting so sick of this! I paid them last week and told them we were almost out. I ran out in the middle of cooking dinner on Sunday. So I called them Monday morning and specifically said...I was wondering if we were scheduled to be delivered today. She asked what our tank gauge read and when I said we're totally out her response was...We'll get someone there as soon as possible. GREAT! Until 5pm and there was still no delivery. I called again...the owner, no you'll get it tomorrow, we didn't have anyone driving out your way today. WHY didn't she tell me that in the morning!!!

My whole day would've been different! I would've thrown something in the crockpot instead of having to buy something that was easy to cook on the griddle and microwave, taken the kids somewhere to take showers, done laundry and hung it out to dry or taken it to the laundromat to use their dryers. BUT NOOOOO! I've been waiting for the gas man all day instead!!! GRRRRRRRRRR! I'm seriously considering changing companies. Just have to do the legwork to get it done. (which I stink at)

Sorry, back to the matter at hand...the menu

Saturday... Mu Shu chicken was switched to BBQ chicken on the grill after UB decided it's what he wanted for dinner and bought it.
Sunday... Chicken tenders, stuffing, fried zucchini, and salad
Monday... Hofmann hotdogs, corn on the cob, leftover salt potatoes
Tuesday... Pizza, (IF the propane guy comes today!) salad
Wednesday... Shrimp Alfredo, garlic breadsticks, green beans
Thursday... Meatball subs, sides TBD
Friday... Grilled pork roast, garlic egg noodles, peas
Saturday... Spaghetti with italian sausage, bread

Update...I called the propane company in the middle of writing this. They're suppose to be here...any second. I asked her if she could do me a favor...tell me the truth when I call and ask if I'm getting a delivery that day! That doing so allows me to make appropriate plans. I explained how things are here (not that I expect special treatment because of my family size, but it does make things a bit more complicated for me). I also asked if there was SOME way I could get a delivery without having to call and say I'm out of propane. She said she'd look into it and see why it was happening and what she could do about it. So I guess they get a second chance, but not much of one!!
