For the first time since I started Weekend Photos in Review, I’ve got nothing for you. I know, terrible. I was a lazy bum all weekend. Well, if you consider putting away all the Christmas decorations, tracking down and hanging curtains, doing six loads of laundry, errands and shoveling out my office being lazy. The weather has been crazy windy, so bad that it’s completely unmotivating to leave the house. Staying in does wonders for increased productivity, that’s for sure.
So since I have no good pictures to speak of, will you settle for my first menu plan for the New Year? In my long list of things to do this weekend, planning the menu was one of them. Here’s what the week looks like:
Sunday: Company for dinner, Smoked Salmon Cream Pasta, Crab Rangoons (still just as good as the last time I made them) and Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels (new recipe)
Monday: Veggie and Cream Cheese Omelet (breakfast, new recipe), Two Step Macaroni and Cheese (new recipe), fresh fruit, steamed vegetables
Wednesday: Homemade pizzas for the kids, dinner out for me
Thursday: Gorgonzola Burgers with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce (new recipe), roasted potatoes
Friday: Out with a friend
Saturday: Spaghetti Marinara with Roasted Sausages
When planning the menu, I wanted to accomplish a few things … make new recipes, make a concentrated effort to use what’s on hand, and make sure to plan days for leftovers lest the refrigerator get too full and things get wasted. So far, so good. If you’ve planned a menu for the week, I’d love to see it – do share the link below for the class. :) For more menus, check out Menu Planning Monday tomorrow at Organizing Junkie.
