good thoughts...

your journey has molded
you for your greater good,
and it was exactly what it needed to be.
don't think you have lost time.
it took each and every
situation you have encountered
to bring you to the now.
and now is right on time.

meals for the week 11.6.11 through 11.12.11

yep, it's time for me to get back into meal planning for sanity... :) and budgeting... :)
after a trip to Illinois, family being here, family leaving, family coming back...things have been a little "crazy." :)
but, i'm happy to say that we're back into a semi-normal routine... :)

i'm also "working" now 2 days a week... i'm at the elementary school where i worked at for 9 years helping with an afterschool program, but the hours present the opportunity for making dinner a challenge, so it's good to meal plan... :) i can plan for leftovers or a crock pot meal on those days i'm going to be working in the afternoons so that i can get dinner on the table before midnight :)

sooo, on this election day week, our bellies will be filled with...

Sunday: crock pot roast with potatoes and carrots
Monday: crock pot beef stew
Tuesday: leftovers (pot roast)
Wednesday: leftovers (beef stew)
Thursday: sour cream pancakes and turkey bacon
Friday: skillet lasagna
Saturday: hamburgers on the grill

hope you all have a wonderful week! :) remember to VOTE! :)
