Seriously? October? We are amidst the last quarter of 2011, and I’m just now getting used to writing ’2011′ on the checks. Is anyone else stuck in the past a couple of decades, like I am? I mean, when someone mentions something happening in, say…1992, in your mind does it feel like perhaps that’s only seven or eight years ago? It certainly can’t be nearly twenty years ago! Can it?!
Anyway, Darling Husbie and I have entered a new season and since then, I have been completely off kilter with my schedule. We are both absolute creatures of habit, and my habits revolve around routine and organization. Well, organization flew out the window. It’s gone south for the winter, apparently. That’s completely unacceptable. We are about to embark on some fun and exciting ~ and chaotic ~ adventures around here. I must, at least, have some sort of organized chaos!
So, since today is a brand new day, and it’s a brand new week, I thought I’d start with something simple. Our menu.
Monday ~ Oven Fried Chicken; Mashed Potatoes; Corn and Cucumber Salad; Cheesy Garlic Biscuits
Tuesday ~ Meatloaf; Roasted Potato Bites; Green Beans; Cauliflower
Wednesday ~ New Orleans Dirty Rice; Tossed Salad
Thursday ~ Beef Roast; Carrots, Potatoes, Celery; Honey Wheat Rolls
Friday ~ Chicken Tacos; Refried Beans; Spanish Rice
Saturday ~ Homemade Pizza; Tossed Salad
Sunday ~ Chicken and Dumplings; Tossed Salad
For dessert, I think I will build a ‘Pumpkin’ Pie. We still have quite a bit of Boston Marrow squash in the freezer, and with our cool fall nights again, I think a nice slice of pie will fit the bill.
Bon Appetit! ♥
PS: Remember my dieting efforts? Well, I lost eight pounds in two weeks, and I’ve stalled. But, then again, with all the ‘change’ taking place, I’ve sort of been cheating, too! I don’t think crab rangoons are on the diet plan menu! I’m happy to report, though, I haven’t gained any back. Now, if I can shed a few more pounds, I’ll be delighted!
