Menu Plan Monday

Monday: Pizza night
Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Crockpot creamy deer over rice (I really need a better name for this stuff)

Thursday: White bean and sausage soup

Friday: Leftovers before Care Group

Saturday: Grilling!!! (It’s supposed to hit 40 and around here that means it’s grilling weather!)

I might be substituting pancakes at some point because I made them the other night and actually followed the recipe and they were a flop. Now I need to redeem myself for my taste buds sake.

I’m tired. Tired of having things that just don’t have a home so they get stuffed in a tub and in my van when our house shows. I’m tired of feeling like my things own me, instead of that I own my things. So I’m doing Org Junkie’s challenge. I’ve started taking my before pictures, and I’ll post before and afters when I get the areas organized. I’m also going to keep a count of all the stuff I’m purging from my house either to the dumpster, or to Goodwill. I want to see how much I’ve really accomplished by how big that number is going to be, and to see those pics that show how much room I will have.

If anyone else is interested in the  Org Junkie Challenge , click the link and check it out. I’d love to see your before and afters as well. If you are blogging about it, post a link to your blog in the comments section so I can see your hard work as well.


Menu Plan Monday

I haven’t done a very good job planning my menus the last few weeks since the youngest munchkin had his surgery. I’ve done well with not shopping much and eating from the stockpile. With the start of a new month, and munchkin in short leg casts instead of the long leg ones I feel like I have time to really get back into my good habit building.

Sunday: Red Beans & Rice

Monday: Sitter night – Pizza

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Homemade Pizza

Thursday: Cheddar Cheese Soup

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Girls Night Out!!! Boys are on their own.

Sunday: Church potluck, still deciding what to make for that.
