Week 387 Menu

Happy Monday everyone!  We had a super Christmas.  I posted a little bit about it here.  I might have over-simplified a iittle bit, but the kids didn't mind.  It was great to be able to go to church yesterday and focus a little more on the true meaning of Christmas.

Last week I never planned my menu.  It was busy, busy, busy and I barely even cooked.  We had a birthday to celebrate and lots of other things going on.  I got to take a break and go on a youth overnight sledding activity with my daughter and the teenagers from church.  It was beautiful in the mountains and I had no responsibilities, so it was very relaxing (the photo above was where we stayed).

I gave myself an Instant Pot for Christmas and I'm excited to try it.  Do you have a favorite Instant Pot recipe?  I'd love to hear all about it.

I am in major dejunking mode.  I have been thinking a lot about how much we have and how much we don't use.  I'm making three piles:  one for the thrift store, one for our local refugee program and a giant garbage pile.  Feel so good to only have what we use around.

It's menu time:

Monday:  orange ginger chicken (in the instant pot)

Tuesday:  chicken noodle soup

Wednesday:  chicken fajitas

Thursday:  beef stroganoff with whole wheat egg noodles

Friday:  baked potato bar

Saturday: New Year's Eve smorgasbord...probably homemade pizza first and then snacks and treats later

Sunday: slow cooker sweet tomatillo pork (tacos or salad)

What about you?  What are you making this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!
