Menu Plan Week of December 9

I’m happy to be back home after being out of town for work last week. My husband tells me he is extremely happy I am home! It is nice to be missed. I did find being away by myself to be quite interesting. I had a wonderful visit with my daughter before my work assignment started (she lives in the Portland area), work was very productive, and I had an interesting personal journey in those few days. I’ll share more about that in a future post all its own.

This week my youngest girl, Lulu, turns 16. It is very hard to believe that she can possibly be that age! We celebrated her birthday over the weekend due to her schedule for this week.

While you are here, be sure to enter the giveaway that is going on this week. Chaya from Pantry Paratus interviewed me for Pantry Paratus Radio and is also hosting a giveaway here at Real Food for Less Money. What’s the prize. The totally awesome popcorn popper in the picture.
