Menu Plan Monday

Goal setting, menu planning, house cleaning, I'm just a January Housewife Stereotype. It feels good though. The Christmas stuff has been boxed up and moved to the garage. I am drawing up a garage organization plan and will begin to implement it this week. Then I will move on to another room. This is what I was just starting on when Bob had his accident in September. I have been in a holding pattern long enough. It's time to get moving again.

Crow takes flight

Bob is still grounded, no travel or physical therapy for another month, but he has been allowed to remove his neck brace. That small change feels like victory. He is making progress. We are both anxiously looking forward to returning to normal life and, even though there is still a lot of work to be done, the removal of that brace is tangible evidence that this stage in our lives will not last forever.

Enough deep stuff.. on to the menu!

Monday - Chicken Sausage, Veggie dogs, Frittata, Biscuits
Tuesday - Lasagna, Bread, Green Beans
Wednesday - Salsa Chicken, Vegetarian Spanish Rice and Beans, Tortillas and Salad
Thursday - Chili stuffed baked potatoes, steamed Broccoli
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Make your own Pizza
Sunday - Tomato soup, Panini, and chips

Yay! That makes me want to plan and organize and clean, too! (Is it okay if I steal some of your meal plan? I'm grocery shopping later this morning.)

OK, you're making me hungry and it is after 11pm...too late to eat.

I'm in the clean/organize house mode, too. It does feel good to finally do it and to have something that you can grab onto that is within your control.

Day one left me a bit discouraged and I'm trying to talk myself back into cleaning mode now. My garage is unbelievable. I could do a month long series on garage archeology!

"Drawing up a garage plan"?!!!I'd be happy just to see more than 4 sf of floor. You are quite motivated!

I actually have about six square feet clear Tiffany.. of course it's the only thing I've accomplished. Big plans, small achievement. Oh well.

I am celebrating in your victory of the removal of the neck brace for Bob.

It is so difficult sometimes isn't it?

Your menu plan is amazing. I barely do a thing and when I do, half the time I don't know what to do.


Love Renee
