Meal Planning Monday

After a hectic first week back to work - I'm back into a routine and here's my menu for the week! It's light, as we'll be away for the holiday at my sister-in-laws house here in New York. I am listing what I'm making my sister-in-law's after the weekly menu

Monday - 1 pot chicken and rice dish
Tuesday - clean out the fridge left-overs

Wednesday - Saturday - Sister-in-laws

For the 4 days away includes:

Graham cracker crust pudding pie (in chocolate)
A side dish (need to confirm with SIL what my MIL and FIL are bringing first)
Brunch 1 day (breakfast meats, eggs, and either french toast or pancakes)
Making leftover turkey soup (we had a turkey given to us I'm bringing to cook and make into soup)
plus drinks, snacks for us and the kids

Make sure you go over to I'm an Organizing Junkie and catch all the other menu's planned for this big holiday food week!!

WIP Wednesday: a new knitter in the family!

Well, its wednesday again, and still no pictures (maybe someday I'll post the FOs at least).

Well, last night i started teaching my oldest daughter to knit. She's getting the knit stich itself down - but they are tight stitches... and she is somehow increasing at the ends.. LOL... we'll figure it out - but her attempts at this age are SO much better then mine ever were when my grandmother tried to teach me.

I've also finished making the fingerless gloves for my co-worker, and made another set for my son - he love's them!

Now, it's a debate if i start making a doll for my 6 yr old, or the Bell's gloves for my oldest. Decisions, decisions!!
