Week 309 Menu

Hi guys!  I actually planned my menu this week and have been sticking to it!  It's a great feeling finally having the kitchen stocked well enough, so when I make dinner I have everything I need.  No more making taco soup and not having any corn, etc.

We're trying to adjust to the weather here.  It's a bit different than bright blue New Mexico skies, even in the winter.  We've had lots and lots of gray days, some rain and some fog.  It's been rainy since Sunday and no sun in sight, so I'm trying to stay optimistic.  :)

Here's a view for you out my computer room window looking into the backyard.

Here's my positive thoughts about the weather...
The fog on the top of the hill behind our house looks cool.
Our grass is greening up.
It's not as cold as we're used to for February.
No need to pray for moisture.  :)
I might need to go shopping for cute rainboots.
You don't have to shovel rain.
I don't need to wear sunglasses.

Great, huh?  For those of you that live in gray, wintery places, what do you like to do to make your days a little brighter?  I feel like baking and eating (and also like taking a nap and not exercising, which isn't very good).

All righty...menu time.

Monday:  we had beef stroganoff and yummy, yummy whole wheat bread

Tuesday:  we had white chicken chili

Wednesday:  Swedish meatballs, steamed potatoes, IKEA gravy, lingonberry, etc.

Thursday:  parmesan chicken and smashed potatoes

Friday:  meatball sandwiches

Saturday:  orange chicken 

Sunday:  pulled pork sandwiches topped with coleslaw

What are you making this week?  (Or what have you eaten for dinner so far this week?)  I love it when you share!  Have a great day!

P.S.  I've been posting on instagram and my blog facebook page every few days if you want more pictures.  :)
