Menu Week of February 23 – Working out of Town

oregon food

This week I’m working in Oregon for my twice yearly audit that I do with them. I flew into Oregon on Saturday and spent the weekend with my daughter (she lives outside of Portland). On Sunday she brought me to the shop and we stopped at Trader Joe’s so I could pick up food for [...]

Hello Menu Planners! This week we have another fairly simple menu lined up. My hand is still messed up so I need help in the kitchen with basic things like cutting and carving. Joe has been great at ‘giving me a hand’ in the kitchen. For those of you thinking my hand has been a [...]

Eggs

Hello fellow Menu Planners! I have to tell you how much better my weeks go when I make an effort to not only plan my menu but also stick with it. I love the structure that having a plan provides and I really love not having to come up with a dish to make at [...]

February!

 

Our welcome to February here in Wyoming includes a day this week with a forecast high of -3. I’m not going to lie. Negative 3 is cold. But truthfully it’s not terribly bad unless the wind is blowing too. If the wind is blowing then it is a good day to stay [...]

Menu Week of January 12 Real Food for Less Money

Already the last week of January! It’s cold and snowy here. Not as cold as it was last month but still chilly. Have you heard about the propane shortage? I hadn’t until last week when our propane guy arrived for our monthly fill. But because of the shortage he was only allowed to fill [...]

WOW! I am super excited. I returned home last night from Freedom 2014 in Tampa for my wrapping business. It was several days of awesomeness, inspiration, training and more. I shared my goals for 2014 in a post that included paying off our consumer debt this year. After going to training I am motivated to [...]

Wednesday morning bright and early I’m leaving town. I’m going to Tampa, FL for Freedom 2014 Conference for my skinny wrap business. Joe will be holding down the fort here at home. Usually when I’m leaving town I prepare a few things for the family to have while I’m gone. Since cooking is a bit [...]

Menu Week of January 12 Real Food for Less Money

This is a sad time. My daughter’s boyfriend lost his mom Saturday night. She was only 43. Her death comes just a few days after he lost his uncle and his dad had a severe asthma attack. His dad is still very ill and unable to take care of himself. My heart aches for JT [...]

Menu week of December 29

A few weeks ago I shared my broken hand menu plan. That week Joe helped me do a bunch of cooking on Sunday afternoon and I was able to easily heat meals at supper time each week. This was wonderful! It was super helpful since things like cutting and slicing is challenging with a cast [...]

I thought about subtitling this week’s menu “Real Food with a Broken Hand” because that’s what’s happening here. Last Sunday I slipped on packed snow (aka ice) in our yard and hit hard. I ended up with a little bone in my right hand broken (scaphoid) and yes, I am right handed.

I’m now [...]

Menu Week of August 3 and Memories

I can’t believe that we are already in December. It seems that 2013 has completely flown by. Our Thanksgiving weekend was very nice. Joe was off from Wednesday until today (Monday). He did a few things around here and even made our bread for the week on Saturday. I have to tell you, I felt [...]

Thanksgiving!

Last year at this time our kitchen was upside down in the process of getting a makeover. As a result we had our Thanksgiving meal at a local hotel that did a buffet. While the buffet was fine, it was certainly not the same as our usual at-home Thanksgivings. This year the kitchen is [...]

Last week I mentioned that we’ve not been as diligent with our budget as we need to be. One of the places that we’ve let slide is dining out. A few years ago (around the time I started this blog) our budget was super tight and eating out was not something that fit into the [...]

Black Beans

Sunday afternoon I had a little time to myself. Joe and Christopher went in to town to do a couple of errands and pick up Lulu from a friend’s. Kiki was at work. It is quite rare for me to have the entire house to myself. I took advantage of it by watching a show [...]

Menu Plan Week of October 27

Design a Dish Muffins

Cold and blustery today. We’re supposed to get one to two inches of snow. The weekend was so warm that we didn’t even need jackets. Interesting weather, for sure!

We have a three day weekend scheduled starting this Friday. We’re planning to go up to the new property providing snow doesn’t prevent the trip. We [...]
