So glad it’s officially March and spring’s on the way!
Unexpectedly called into work this morning so my post is going up late. And since I’m working again tomorrow and possibly on Wednesday, this week needs a plan. Glad to be joining in with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom to make one!
Is Was On The Plate This Morning
Super rushed morning without a weekend grocery trip meant I grabbed the last of Chobani Flips even though they contain quite a bit of sugar. Needed the protein! And coffee although not enough. Plus took a G-Fuel water bottle to work.
On Today’s To-Do List
None of it happened since I went to work but it was a typical list:
- Clean out fridge
- Go to grocery store
- Write and publish this post
- Go get lawn bags and pick up leaf piles
- Target/cat litter
- Start planning for Easter Brunch
- Pay bill (electric bills arrived after I paid all the others, annoying)
Still wading through Raising A Responsible Child: How To Prepare Your Child For Today’s Complex World by Dr. Don C. Dinkmeyer Sr. and Dr. Gary McKay. Heard myself using some of its logic at work today. They’ve written one about raising teenagers, I think I want to read it also.
On The TV Today
Probably just The Voice with my husband. Maybe that show after it.
The Weather Outside Is…
Warm? 50s Rainy? Cold? 40s Windy? Sunny? 50s. All of those within a day? Yes. Predicted to be cold (41) and windy again tomorrow but who knows. Lows in the upper 20s on Thursday and Friday? Hoping that one changes!
On The Menu This Week
No ideas…none. I really need to think on it. Let’s look at last week first…
Chicken Enchilada Casserole We bumped the French Toast to this night
French Toast We had regular chicken enchiladas (instead of the casserole) and taco salads
Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef We all did our own thing: mozzarella sticks for J, ham sandwich for J, and G and I had copycat Chik-Fil-A sandwiches (I adapted mine to leave out the powdered sugar)
Kielbasa, green beans and sweet potatoes in the crock pot, fried okra, and we all had ham steaks. Frozen okra into fried okra was not very good. We’ll wait until August for fresh okra.
FRIDAY: Frozen pizza or Out. We ordered pizza.
Now what to have this week…I really need to go to the store!
MONDAY: We all did our own thing: just deli turkey for J, hot dog for G, I had a turkey sandwich, and my husband had to do a few work errands and hasn’t eaten yet. *I worked 7:40 to 4:15*
TUESDAY: Maybe spaghetti of some sort *I work 7:15-3:45*
WEDNESDAY: Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef take 2 *I may be working 3-6*
THURSDAY: Chicken legs and salad maybe
FRIDAY: Probably OUT or maybe breakfast for dinner
If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself I Will
Finish my book.

New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week
I made these Flourless Strawberry Brownies. They aren’t awful. (Unless you ask my husband who for some reason tried one…yes, they are awful after a normal chocolate chip cookie). Definitely need to use seedless jam if I make them again. And some sort of frosting, I didn’t frost my batch.

Liked this one since it had my word of the year in it!
So what’s on the agenda for your week? Did it get off to a fast start like mine or did you get to linger over your coffee?
