This Week's Menu
I decided to take a few days off from writing and blogging. I've spent this time being super busy keeping my recliner warm. My kids are going completely stir crazy. School cannot start soon enough, both for them and me. Structure, routine, a schedule. I cannot.wait.
I also have been planning for a bunch of new stuff around here. I'll be rolling out a new logo hopefully for the last time, in the next week or so...I am just working on the details of it. Also, where I've been pretty sporadic with posting, that's about to change too! I've got a great little schedule worked out and I am really hoping I'll stick to it. Seeing as how I have over 40 drafts ready to write/edit/post, I dang well better.
Also, I'm pretty sure you all noticed with my last few menu plans how burnt out I was getting...they were boring and lame. I stopped focusing on cooking and really just wanted to write out impressive lists. I am going back to the basics, what I know best. I know that I am really good at making really good dinners. So I am going to go back to focusing on making good dinners. Breakfast and lunch always work themselves out around here but dinner, dinner is when I put time and effort into my cooking.
Lunch will be different starting next week though...Lucy gets to eat lunch at school now so I'll be packing her a lunch every day. I am going to be using EasyLunch Boxes. They fit perfect in this new Frozen lunchbox that I got Lucy which she is super excited about! In light of these bento box type lunches, I'll just be posting a picture of bento box lunch ideas every Sunday! Oh and be on the lookout Tuesday for a giveaway for the EasyLunch boxes!
So this week's bento box ideas, next week I might post a list of what is in them, but really for the most part, they are pretty self explanatory right?
I am also scratching the shopping list idea. The problem that I came across with my shopping list is that I get things delivered on top of doing some small shopping. I used the shopping list aspect for myself when I would go shopping...well I wouldn't put things on my list that I know would be getting delivered so I know that my list was a little off some weeks. Now, instead, I am just scrapping it all together. There was also the suggestion of adding recipes to my plans again. So not only will I be posting links to the recipes I will be using from other people, I am going to start documenting what I do in the kitchen so that when I say we are having my famous potato soup, I can link it back to a recipe of said soup so you can enjoy it too. Be patient with me though on the recipes...I am not a food blogger and good pictures are hard to take indoors especially now that it's getting darker earlier.
I think that is all for now...I am very excited about the upcoming changes and I can't wait to hear your feedback!
So on to this week's menu...
Monday- Tortellini Premavera
Wednesday-BLTs with garlic sweet potato fries (recipe forthcoming)
Thursday-BBQ at school
