Last week went by in one of those busy blurs. Not sure what I did exactly outside of working and not blogging but it felt busy!
This week is probably going to be another busy one but then, it’s spring break for us!
Glad to have a plan for these busy weeks thanks to the Happy Homemaker Monday link-up hosted by Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom. Be sure and check it out!
On to the categories…
Breakfast Time…What Is On The Plate This Morning
After a sugar-filled weekend (oops), back to my eating better sugar-free until April 1 attempt. Scrambled egg with bacon bit and toast with butter. And of course, coffee.
*J and I did walk to McDonald’s for our traditional Shamrock Shakes so that had to cancel out a little bit of the sugar, I hope!
On My To-Do List
Haircut this morning
- Finish and publish this post, after haircut
- Parent teacher conferences at both boys’ schools
- Make Easter Brunch Menu
- Make Housecleaning Plans
- See what the boys want to do on their spring break (besides stay home and sleep late)
- Pay bills
- Usual clean out fridge, grocery store, stuff
- Still need to return library books instead of simply renewing them
The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age Of Artificial Intelligence by Amir Husain. It’s nonfiction. Interesting so far although I’m only on page 32. Also, still working my way through the March magazines.
On The TV Today
I confess to spending part of my busy week/weekend watching the entirety of Jessica Jones, season 2. Definitely thought season 2 was as good as the first one.
Now, I’ll probably only watch The Voice tonight and spend most of this week doing other non-TV things.
The Weather Outside Is
Today’s weather is more like this:
We do need the rain though so not too much complaining about it over here. Cold (low 40s) as well. We don’t need the cold. Supposed to be partly sunny and warmer for our spring weather by the end of the week.
On The Menu This Week
No idea. Let’s recap how last week went first:
Tacos, rice We had hamburgers *I worked 1-5*
Chicken legs, twice baked potatoes We had the tacos and rice from Monday’s plan
Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef We had the chicken legs with baked sweet potatoes *I worked 9-noon*
Thursday: We had Subway *I worked 8-4:15* *G had a band concert*
leftovers or shrimp with baked sweet potatoes We had grocery store Chinese take-out and J had taco bell (he went to an event at a local game store with a friend) *I worked 8-4:15*
Saturday: I had training until 3, J and I walked to get our Shamrock shakes, and then, we ended up just ordering a pizza.
Sunday: We had left-overs.
The plan for this week:
MONDAY: Spaghetti and meatballs, salad *I have parent teacher conferences at the middle school*
TUESDAY: Roast in the crock pot *I have parent teacher conferences at the high school* *Bunco night as well*
WEDNESDAY: Bacon Wrapped Chicken, Baked potatoes
THURSDAY: ham steaks, mac and cheese, salad, cornbread
FRIDAY: OUT to celebrate start of spring break for boys
If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself I Will
Either pick up the camera or work on this blog a bit.
What I’m Knitting, Sewing, Or Creating
New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week
I tried 2 new recipes last week! My success rate with them is 0-2. Ha!
The spinach muffins were such a disaster I threw them away. I wonder if the sugar recipe would have worked better but too late now. Spinach is going to stick to being a savory food item for me.
The second recipe I tried went the other direction on the health spectrum. I made Bottom Of The Cereal Box cookies.
They were okay to me. Kind of sweet/salty thing. The sugar cookie mix had a funky/bad aftertaste according to both J and my husband though. J thought it I made a chocolate chip cookie dough base and then added the cereal it might work better. The cereals I used for these: cookie crisp and St. Patrick’s Day edition Lucky Charms.
Favorite Photo From The Camera
Just saw this on a church bulletin board as I was driving home from my hair appointment:
Don’t let your past steal your future.
