It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas this Menu Plan Monday, and that means that menu planning is rather rushed. The way I planned the meals this week was to sit on the couch with a piece of paper, while watching National Lampoon Christmas Vacation on Saturday night (highly recommended). I just thought of […]

Christmas busy-ness seems like it’s in full swing, this Menu Plan Monday — how about at your house? There are two really busy evenings this week, which always makes menu planning a challenge. Last week, I was watching one of my favorite TV shows, “The Middle.” As often happens on this show, the family (which […]
Happy Menu Plan Monday, everyone. How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was nice; we were at relatives’ and my sister even took a family photo: So now the Christmas season begins in earnest. It is kind of nice because we celebrated over Thanksgiving with part of the family, so that forced me to have a large […]
Hi everyone, and welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of menu plan Monday! We will be visiting this week and so I have less cooking to do than usual, which is always a welcome treat. So, here is the abbreviated menu plan: Monday: Cheeseburger Wraps — new recipe; don’t they look delicious? Probably baked potato fries […]
It’s been another busy week: one daughter’s marching band completed its final competition, finishing 8th in the nation — wow! What a journey this season has been. I was able to travel to one of the state’s universities with another daughter as she competed with her team in the state spell bowl. That was fun […]
Welcome to Menu Plan Monday! Such a nice week here; I hope yours was as well. The weekend brought state marching band finals, and my oldest daughter’s band finished 3rd in Class A. Their show, Dance of the Wind Spirits, is lovely if I do say so myself. If you’ve got 10 minutes to spare, […]
November has arrived for this Menu Plan Monday, and a chilly weekend it was here in the midwest. I spent Saturday outside at marching band semi state finals, where 40-degree temps paired with 20 mph winds made it feel very wintery. This week is looking a little better, and I’m taking solace from recent reports […]
Menu Plan Monday time again — how was your week? I hope it was great. It was a busy fall week here, but full of good things. Fall makes me appreciate nice weather more than usual, with its reminders that winter will be knocking on our doors all too quickly. My birthday was nice; thanks […]
Menu Plan Monday again! It has been a busy weekend here; senior band night for the oldest daughter, a dance performance for the middle daughter, and an out-of-town bonsai club trip for the youngest. Add in relatives visiting and it has been chaotic, but good. I hope your weekend was nice as well! […]
Marching band flute breakfast 2014 is history, and I hope the girls enjoyed it as much as I did. The spread was ready, and it was fun when guests began to pour in. We don’t have a lot of people over to our house, so maybe that’s part of what made this so much fun. […]
