We’re on our second day of sunshine this morning. I’m seeing more robins in the yard. Feeling a bit restless. Could it be spring is on its way?
First, we must get through the last Monday in February. Glad to link up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for these posts. Makes planning Mondays fun.
On to the categories…
Breakfast time…what is on the plate this morning…
Big breakfast to see if I’d do a bit better with the no refined sugar thing today: 2 egg omelette with red peppers and Parmesan cheese plus 2 slices of pumpernickel toast and of course, coffee. Glad I’m the only one home because I browned my eggs a bit more than I intended (sounds nicer than almost burned them, yes?)
On Today’s To-Do List
Mostly the usual…
- Write and publish this post
- Clean out the fridge
- Go to the grocery store
- Call about getting car serviced
- Clean rest of house/maybe make a spring cleaning plan
- Get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather!
Despite renewing all my library books, I picked up a book off my own shelf and am now in the middle of reading Raising A Responsible Child: How To Prepare Your Child For Today’s Complex World by Dr. Don C. Dinkmeyer Sr. and Dr. Gary McKay. It’s insightful.
I also have the Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle book sitting there but I’m stalled on reading it AGAIN. Just doesn’t do it for me. Might be time to call it on that one.
On The TV Today
Probably not too much. I was bad on Friday and watched the entire season 2 of The Magicians on Netflix. Time for a TV break although my husband may have said something about The Voice starting again…if that’s tonight, I might watch it with him. And of course, I’ll watch The Flash on Tuesday night.
SUNNY! And yes, I’m shouting it. Sunny and getting warmer! Perfect after a week of rainy cloudy skies. Of course, the rainy, cloudy skies return mid-week but then leave for the weekend and no icy nonsense in the forecast.
On The Menu This Week
Struggling for ideas this week so let’s look at how last week went first:
MONDAY: Tacos. We did follow this plan! We also had yellow rice with the tacos. Extra taco meat is in the freezer.
TUESDAY: We were all here, no work or Bunco for me because of the weather. Instead of left-overs we had spaghetti.
Spaghetti We had fried pork chops and baked sweet potatoes
Pork Chops We ordered pizza
The plan for this week:
MONDAY: Chicken Enchilada Casserole (left-over tacos or rotisserie chicken for my husband and J)
TUESDAY: French Toast and bacon per request (I’ll probably have a salad with left-over rotisserie chicken)
WEDNESDAY: Slow cooker broccoli beef, rice
THURSDAY: Kielbasa, green beans, and new potatoes in the crock pot. Ham steaks for the boys. (Maybe fried okra as well),
FRIDAY: Probably frozen pizza or OUT or left-overs
Still not entirely happy with the above plan, probably going to change it after I go grocery shopping…moving on…
If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself I Will…
Go somewhere to look for a bit of bright spring decor for the house.
What I’m Knitting, Sewing, Or Creating…
Just dreaming of new garden spaces right now.
New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week
I tried these honey pumpkin muffins yesterday and they were good but a little sweet. Think they’d be perfect with a cream cheese filling or maybe some dark chocolate chips (I did leave out the toasted pecans simply because I didn’t have any). They take a lot of honey though (my poor little bear went from full to barely anything after making them). You’d need to either rob a bank or a beehive to make them on a regular basis. Still it was nice to have a muffin choice that didn’t call for anything too weird while being refined sugar-free.

Quote For The Week
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. (Interesting info on this being incorrectly attributed to C.S. Lewis can be found here)
What’s on your agenda this week as we move into March?
