Weekly Menu Plan – March 10, 2014

Spring is technically 10 days away, but it is making short appearances here every few days or so. We have been above freezing for the past few days, but will dip below again, with possible snow on Wednesday. As frustrating as this is, I am trying to look at the forecast with a positive attitude, [...]

Switch to Turkey

Over the past few years I have been gradually switching over to ground turkey from ground beef. We still eat ground beef on occasion, especially for burgers, but when I make tacos, lasagna or the like, I use ground turkey. Jennie-O’s Lean Ground Turkey is easy to find in our local grocery store and is [...]

Pot Roast – AKA Comfort Food City

It has been a long time since I have made a pot roast in this house. When Hannah was little, I would make it all of the time because it was easy to toss into the crock pot and forget about it for the rest of the day. After having it weekly for close to [...]

Weekly Menu Plan – January 27, 2013

Welcome to the last week of January. I’d like to thank Mother Nature for reminding us it is winter. I tolerate cold decently until it gets below 20. After that, I whine and moan about cold toes and frozen noses. Tomorrow the wind chill is predicted to be -25 to -35 Sounds fun, huh?

Weekly Menu Plan–December 1, 2013

Welcome to December!  It really seems like we lost a week with Thanksgiving being so late this year, didn’t it?  Christmas is 3 weeks from Wednesday, which means I better get on the ball.  I still have Christmas cards to design, print and mail, not to mention the shopping list I have to complete!

Weekly Menu Plan–Thanksgiving Week 2013

Busy week ahead.  The kids are only in school for two days, snow is on the way and my mom arrives tomorrow!  Getting ready for the holiday isn’t just about cooking and/or baking, it involves cleaning.  The quickest way to plow through chores is to divide and conquer.  I wanted to make it fair, so [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–November 11, 2013

Before I get started with the menu plan I want to take a moment to thank all who are currently serving and have previously served our country.  I am not only sending thanks to those veterans, but to their families, too. 

Thank you!

Monday – Burgers, baked steak fries and salad

Weekly Menu Plan–October 14, 2013

Only 6 days to the Nationwide Columbus Marathon & Half Marathon.  This will be my 4th time running the half and I can’t wait!  There is such an amazing atmosphere and crowd support throughout the entire city during the race.  This is one race that I don’t bother with headphones/music…I simply enjoy the sound of [...]
