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.

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 […]

Menu Plan Monday 4/25/2016

Hello, friends! I hope you had a good week. Mine had a fun surprise. My middle daughter and I went to see Heidi Cruz when she came to town to open Ted Cruz’s campaign office here. We were in this crowded room, not knowing if we’d be able to see her above the taller heads […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday to all, and I’m happy to report that the weather has been wonderful here this week. I hope yours is as well! This was a busy week as usual. I had fun helping host a writer’s night at the high school here, where seniors in the AP language composition class read […]

Menu Plan Monday 4/11/2016

Happy menu plan Monday to all of you out there! This past week was our spring break, but unfortunately it wasn’t very spring-like. We had snow a few times, and lows in the 20s. Here’s hoping to a big improvement SOON! I was envious of my many piano families who were in Florida or other […]
