Menu Planning.

I have been wanting to get serious about my menu planning for years now. 2011 is the year I’m just going to do it.

So here is my January 1-14 Menu with links, as applicable. 

January 1: Breakfast for dinner. One of our favorite meals. Will probably be scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits, fresh fruit salad.
January 2: Eat out after Church. Most likely our favorite place: Saratoga Pizza.
January 3: Pasta fagiola, salad and bread.
January 4: Pork roast and rice.
January 5: Left overs.
January 6: Bobby’s Goulash, salad and bread.
January 7: Left over Goulash.
January 8: Down to in-laws to celebrate Christmas.
January 9: Chili Cook-off after Worship.
January 10: Panera after Wild Boy’s basketball game.
January 11: Breakfast for dinner. Pancakes, eggs.
January 12: Dinner at church.
January 13: PW’s pot roast, smashed taters.
January 14: Pizza.


2011 is coming. I am so not ready…procrastination.

One of the changes I am looking to make in 2011 is to stop procrastinating! Procrastination really adds to my stress level. Getting organized is right up there on the list of changes, too. Getting my home organized, my home office, my work office better organized. I think that would all help with my tendency to procrastinate.

Christmas Eve Eve Day.

Happy December 23~

I can NOT believe how time has flown! 2010 has been wicked. Wicked good. Wicked crazy. Wicked bad. Wicked blessed.

Already looking ahead to 2011. Wanting to make some changes…not resolutions. Resolutions = failure in my book.

One thing I have really tried to focus on and make a new habit/mind-set, is thankfulness. December has been all about being grateful.

Two Thousand Eleven is going to be interesting. I turn 50 this year. FIFTY! Half a century. (Is it just me or does “century” sound like a zillion years?)

In the year 2011, I will be married 28 years. (just had to stop and recount cuz that just seems like 4-ever!) Yes…28 years. Shawn, our oldest, will turn 21. Sarah, My Girl, turns 20. The Wild Boy, aka The Brettster, turns 15.

All of these numbers make me smile. (except that daggone FIFTY number.)

Actually, even the ginormous 5-0 is making me smile. Laugh, really. In a high-hysterical-unable-to-stop kind of way. Fifty. A milestone.

Fifty is going to be my aliyah.

I plan on blogging more during my 50th year on Earth. Some upcoming topics include:

:: 50 on turning 50
:: Scripture memorization with all my Siestas
:: More Him…less me
:: Photos…lots more photos (it is seriously time to really learn how to use this digital Nikon of ours and utilize our iMac and Photoshop
:: Recipes (probably mostly baking)
:: Decorating (as in…get my house together, finally)

So. I’m looking forward to 2011. I am so thankful and grateful for you to come along with me.

Love ya,
