Have you seen my new Recipes tab at the top of the page? I’m thankful for the motivation from Laura over at Orgjunkie to make one. She now has an ongoing link-up where bloggers can share their recipe pages. Such a fabulous resource of real-life recipes!
I’m calling this the Uninspired Edition because I’m feeling . . . uninspired. As I began typing I had no idea what I was going to put on the menu. Even now, I only have one idea that I can’t do until Wednesday, because that’s when I’ll stop by Target where ground beef is on sale.
Monday – Chicken Fried Rice
Tuesday – Chicken Spaghetti (Can you tell that pre-cooked chicken is about all I have on hand right now?)
Wednesday – Cheeseburger soup. I saw this recipe on Feels Like Home last week, and was so excited. My normal friend made it for us once – just because. It sounds so good that I’m sad I don’t have what I need to make it right now, but I’ll be looking forward to Wednesday.
Thursday – Round Steak in the Crock Pot. I’m motivated to make this, because several of you requested the recipe, and I’d like to post it (with pictures). I didn’t end up making it last week because my sweet daughter was sick and couldn’t hold out long enough in the store for me to examine meat prices.
Friday – Out to Eat
Saturday – Homemade Pizza
Sunday – Superbowl Party – My contribution will be my cheese dip with its secret ingredient, which I just realized that I didn’t include on my recipe page.
THIS is why I make a menu plan. I could have gone all week long without a plan.
Panicking every single night.
Feeling uninspired . . . every single night.
Instead, I trudged through and made a plan, and now I don’t have to dread 5:00, six times in the next seven days.
Be sure to come back here on Tuesday for the first monthly Decluttering Update Party of 2011! You can link up a blog post or leave a comment sharing any decluttering progress you’ve made in January, small or large!
