Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 5th. I cannot believe that I typed ‘November’ as the month. Wow! I have been insanely finishing a book – if my week goes as planned, I’ll finish Monday or Wednesday this week and will hand it over to my editor. I’m anxious to finish it, because I’m anxious to start the next book. I doubt I’ll even take a day off as this book is flooding my mind and interfering with everything as I mentally work through the story.
Despite all that, my family still has to eat – HA! That has been a big challenge for me as I have spent the last two months turning my writing life into a full time focus — how to do that and keep up with real food. I’ve done it, and I’ll say that the only way I’ve been able to do it is through planning. Meal planning and sticking to the plan keep me sane.
So, this week is volleyball banquet, superhero party, and Veterans’ Day all rolled into one! As far as desserts go, I made some Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Raisin Cookies and sent some to a friend’s car dealership. That Sunday at church, I was bombarded by his employees asking me to send more cookies. I plan to do that this week, as well as make some Super Hero Sugar Cookies for our church’s Super Hero Party the boys will be attending Friday night. I also have a photo shoot for my author promotions and book covers this Saturday, so the menu Saturday night may be changed to read “dinner out with my handsome veteran husband” instead of something I cook.
Lastly, don’t forget that Topaz Heat is on sale this month for just 99 cents!Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 13th. This will be Kaylee’s first full week back to school (she started last Thursday) and the boys both start on Wednesday. We are also full swing into volleyball season, with two away games this week. As far as desserts go, we found some brown rice Rice Krispies, so we’re going to make some Rice Krispies treats using those!
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of March 12th. Tuesday is my daughter’s 15th birthday. She’s requested Floating Hearts in Raspberry Sauce for her birthday dessert. I will probably also make some Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies.
My local Kroger recently had free range organic whole turkeys for $0.49 per pound (as opposed to $2.99 per pound.) We bought several of them, and I will be breaking a turkey down this week to see how many meals I can get out of it.
