Menu Planning Monday - March 11th




Another busy week! At least the weather is trying to improve into "almost spring" status!

Monday -  Leftover buffet
Tuesday - Paninis and soup
Wednesday - "drive through special"
Thursday - Lasagna
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - Us girls will be at a Girl Scout lock-in, so it's TV dinners for the boys (hope they don't blow the microwave! jk )

{this moment}

{this moment} - inspired by SouleMama

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

 If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Keep Calm and Craft On



It has been a while since I have posted what I've been crafting, but being as crafting time has been very few and far between, I'm not surprised at my lack of posting about crafting.

But that as it may, I have been working on a "semi-super-secret" project. no photos, as it's a surprise for the gifter, who may or may not read this blog. But I'll be finished and have it shipped off by the beginning of next week, and hoping to post photos soon there after about it.

So, for lack of my photos and details on what I've been working on, what have all of my reads been working on?

Menu Planning Monday - March 4th




As some may have noticed, I had been taking a bit of break from blogging the last couple of weeks. It's been insane here (hmm, this isn't called the Chaotic Homemaker for nothing!). In addition to working, we've had our 14th wedding anniversary, both mine and my husband's birthdays, Girl Scout cookie sale for my 2 troops and my son participating in Cub Scouts pinewood derby have left me a little deflated in doing much else. But the birthdays and anniversary is past, and pinewood derby is over for us for the year and cookie sales are winding down. Thankfully I have kept up with my menu planning through all this, even when I haven't blogged about it.

This is a relatively calm week for me. Just cub scouts and bell choir between now and the weekend, which is of course full of things for us to do. 3 cookie booths and a cub scout lock in, plus playing hand bells in church and the start of Girl Scout week!

Without further ado...

Monday - Grilled sandwiches, bread sticks and soup
Tuesday - Fend-For-Yourself night
Wednesday- Baked ziti with salad
Thursday - Sausages
Friday - Fish fry (from wegmans)
Saturday - Pizza
Sunday - Baked teriyaki chicken (and quorn "chicken" breast), with rice and broccoli
