Trying something new

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted much of anything.  Life has just been too much to add one more thing to.  Perhaps I’m kidding myself, but I feel like I need some accountability to keep on track.  Hello Mornings looks like it might be the ticket.  I’ll keep you posted.  :-)

Menu Plan Monday ~ January Week 3, 2013

I loved using Eat At Home‘s menu and recipes last week!  It made life so easy!!!  However, I did discover that the recipes make a lot for our family–our kids are still little and don’t eat a bunch at one sitting.  That, combined with a couple of unexpected things at dinnertime gave me two recipes left to make for this week, plus a bunch of leftovers.  The ham and Swiss scalloped potatoes didn’t get made until Saturday night and we had LOTS in the fridge still, so that became our take along to the church for dinner tonight before the boys’ BSF class.  It was still yummy, even reheated!

Here’s how the whole week looks:

  • Monday:  Leftover Ham and Swiss Scalloped Potato casserole, broccoli
  • Tuesday:  Lentil Tacos*, fruit, chips and salsa
  • Wednesday:  Breakfast Sandwiches, sweet potato fries, fruit
  • Thursday:  Chicken Curry* in the slow cooker, rice, green veggie
  • Friday:  Homemade Burgers, oven fries, slaw
  • Saturday:  Chili, corn bread, carrot sticks
  • Sunday:  Chicken (not sure if just breasts in a skillet, tenders, nuggets, or what), salad, fruit, homemade bread

*These recipes are from the Eat At Home menu I used last week.

I hope you find something helpful here.  Have a blessed week!!

Menu Plan Monday ~ January Week 2, 2013


Happy New Year!!  Admittedly, the blog (at least any new writing) has been neglected for the last few months as I have been dealing with illness in my extended family, holidays, and just life in general.  I hope you don’t hold it against me.  :-)

But, Tank went back to school today and The Roadie went back to his regular work schedule, so I’m having a “pull myself up by my bootstraps” kind of moment.  There’s stuff to be done and I am officially out of reasons to put it off, so I’m forcing myself back into “real life”.

While the it hasn’t made it to the web, I actually have continued to menu plan during the last few weeks…most of the time.  However, yesterday I didn’t feel like it, so I went to another source that I came across a while back:  Eat At Home.  They post delicious sounding menus, including a PDF with all the recipes and the grocery list.  So, I’m going to be using one of the menus from their website to get us through this week.  It sounds awesome and it was sooooo easy to just use the grocery list they provide, add the other things we needed, and head out to the store!!!

Here’s what we’re going to have each night.  (All the recipes for this menu are included in their post.)

  • Monday:  Zingy BBQ Chicken, corn, green beans (This should be pretty easy to pack and take to our Monday night indoor picnic before the boys go to BSF.)
  • Tuesday:  Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil, Tomato and Onion Salad, Homemade Artisan Bread
  • Wednesday:  Pizza Steak Sandwiches (slow cooker), carrot sticks, frozen fries (baked)
  • Thursday:  Chick-fil-e fundraiser for Tank’s school
  • Friday:  Ham and Swiss Scalloped Potatoes, Brussels sprouts
  • Saturday:  Chicken Curry (slow cooker), rice, broccoli
  • Sunday:  Lentil Tacos, salad or fruit, chips and salsa

Many blessings as you get back into the swing of post-holiday life!!
