Birthday Week Menu Plan–January 7, 2013

Phew!  What a whirlwind the past few days have been!  More on that (celebrations) later this week.  Before I move onto the meal plan for the week, I want to show you what I did to entertain myself today.  I was looking for a fun bowl or container to put some popcorn in to take [...]

The New Year and Last Menu Plan of 2012

Today is December 30, 2012. Only 2 more days until the new year. Many people choose this time for new beginnings, whether it be a new diet, new workout plan or home organization schedule. Often times it is only a few weeks before the frustration sets in because things aren’t going the way we envisioned [...]

Christmas Week Menu Plan – 2012

Merry Christmas Eve!  Wow, Christmas sure is sneaking up on us, huh?  I can’t believe I am going to say this, but I think I am ready!  WHAT?!  I wrapped all of the gifts yesterday and today I just need to focus on baking some cookies and dessert and making Catholic Potatoes to take to [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–December 16, 2012

Nine days until Christmas and I haven’t made a single Christmas cookie!  Ack!  I better get busy, huh?  I do have some peanut butter fudge made, but that is about the extent of my holiday baking. 

Here are some of my favorite Christmas cookies:

Weekly Menu Plan–December 3, 2012

Hello, December!  At least the calendar says it is December, but the temperature sure doesn’t!  Today the temperature got into the mid-60’s!  It sure is odd to walk out of the house in Columbus, Ohio on December 3rd and not need a coat.  The morning greeted us with some dense fog – dense enough to [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–Back on Track

What a week!  The past five days sure were a whirlwind, but it was great to spend some of that time with family.  Wednesday was busy preparing for the big day.  The big day started with a traditional 4 mile race and then the big meal.  Friday = Black Friday.  We left the house at [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–November 12, 2012

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Temperatures across central Ohio were in the high 60’s and low 70’s. It doesn’t get much better than that in mid-November in Ohio. Unfortunately I believe this will be the end of the nice, warm weather and we should prepare to hunker down and prepare for winter. BRR! The [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–November 6, 2012

A day late – bad blogger!  Been busy around here with hockey tryouts, our 12th Anniversary and puppy training! 

Good news, though, Jon made the varsity team!  Go Jon!  I am excited to watch the team play in the very near future! 

Since today is Election Day, Pei Wei is offering 20% [...]

Recipe: Pumpkin Shrimp Pasta

A short time ago I had the pleasure of reviewing a pumpkin pasta sauce.  I love all things pumpkin and this sauce is no different! Since my first taste, I have been dreaming up new ways to use this pasta and my latest creation is paired with shrimp.

Halloween Weekly Menu Plan–October 28, 2012

BRR! It was 80+ degrees on Thursday and it is very chilly and windy here in Ohio. While we aren’t in the direct path of Sandy, we are definitely feeling some of the effects. Halloween may be very cold and possibly snowy. If you are anywhere in the path of this nasty storm, please stay [...]
