Menu Plan Monday

Welcome all to another Menu Plan Monday! It’s a really hot one here — heat indexes around 100 (which means that the actual temperature is in the 90s, but our Midwestern humidity kicks in to make it feel hotter). My youngest daughter begins band camp today, which runs 8-4 each weekday for the next 3 […]

Menu Plan Monday 7/11/2016

A happy Menu Plan Monday to you all! What has your past week been like? Typical summer week here, although the weekend was busy. Yesterday we traveled 3 hours away to enjoy a niece’s graduation celebration. The entire trip was made in under 24 hours due to work schedules — not ideal, but we are […]

Menu Plan Monday 7/4/2016

Menu plan Monday again — this time on the 4th of July! Happy holiday to everyone! It’s a quiet holiday here. The neighbors we often celebrate with are in China. I’m okay with not doing anything, though — we are recently back from a big vacation, had a trip to a theme park, and there […]

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday, post-Alaska. Last week I began posting about our trip, and I’ll continue that in the weeks to come. Are you planning a vacation this summer? If so, let me know where you’ve visited in the comments. I know frequent commenter Peg was up here in Indiana and Ohio recently! This […]

Menu Plan Monday: Food in Alaska

Today’s Menu Plan Monday is a bit different. I just returned (at 2 this morning, to be exact) from 11 days in Alaska. Thanks to all who visited the blog during that time. I don’t think I’ve been away from it for that long since its 2008 inception. Food — Alaska Needless to say, I […]

Menu Plan Monday: Grocery Planning

Welcome to another menu plan Monday! This one is a little different. We’re preparing for vacation 2016, with which I will thrill and bore you after our return. While we’re still here, I plan on dinners involving as many leftovers as possible. Since that’s not too interesting, I thought today I might go into a […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday, Memorial Day edition! Are you doing anything special for the holiday? It’s a quiet day here, although I’ll still do the weekly grocery shopping. Last Friday, our extended family went to Holiday World in southern Indiana for the day. More on that later this week … In the summer, I still […]

Menu Plan Monday 5/23/2016

Happy Menu Plan Monday! Do you plan your menus for the week? If you don’t, give it a try. For me at least, it has made dinnertime much less stressful. Sure, it takes me an hour or so on Sunday afternoon to get the dinners planned and ingredients either gathered or put onto the grocery […]

Menu Plan Monday 5/9/2016

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It’s been a busy week here, with the annual celebration of all three girls’ birthdays over the weekend. We made the Brick Street Chocolate Cake I posted the recipe for last week. You can see it on the left in the photo at the top. It was delicious — very chocolatey […]

Menu Plan Monday 5/2/2016

Hi everyone! Happy Menu Plan Monday! How has your week been? It’s been busy here as usual, and the week ahead will be as well. This is such an exciting year to live in Indiana. Our primary election is tomorrow, and most Presidential election years we get pretty much no attention, since the nominees are […]
