Menu Plan Monday – Oct 29th

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Welcome to the NEW home of I’m an Organizing Junkie!

I’ll post shortly why I decided to make the switch from Blogger to WordPress and tell you all about my fabulous designer Shaz! We are still working out a few of the kinks not to mention I’m still trying to figure out this platform on the fly. Yikes! Please be patient with me!

One thing I do want to point out to all Menu Plan Monday participants is the brand spanking new tab at the top devoted specifically to MPM. Clicking on that tab will bring you to the MPM guidelines as well as the various MPM banners. Be sure to check it out!!

Oh and don’t forget to enter my Fall Y’all Bloggy giveaway!!!

That’s a lot of excitement for one day! Gosh I can hardly stand it. Time to focus on my menu for the week:

Monday: Baked Chicken Teriyaki served with potatoes and broccoli

Tuesday: Smoky-Flavored BBQ Ribs served with rice and carrots

Wednesday: Whole wheat spaghetti served with garlic bread and salad

Thursday: Leftover Buffet

Friday: Frozen pizza for the family ~ mommas going out of town (I’ll post about that soon)!!

    Hi, I have already commemted on #16. I didnt read the rules before I went to Mr. Linky. I am sorry I posted my homepage and I didn’t add that I was *new* on Mr. Linky either. I promise I will do better next week. 🙂

    Nice look. I was worried when you said the neon was going away. ;-( The tabs will be handy, though. I’m impressed that you ventured into a new program, I’m just getting to know what blogger can do!

    Love your new page! It’s very soothing. 😉

    I like your menu, too. Since I’ve been seeing whole wheat pasta on sale, I’ve been buying more of it. (which is great since I’m doing Weight Watchers!) I really enjoy it. Glad to see it on your menu, too. 🙂

    Have a safe trip. Thanks for hosting!

    I’ve been planning my menu on my blog for about a month, but this is the first time I’ve ever come over and linked up with everyone.

    Any chance of getting a small square banner that could go in my avatar space? (I notice you said you don’t want us making our own banners, or I’d make one by adapting one of the rectangle ones.)

    Laura says

    Hi Cjmr, yes please feel free to make smaller versions of my MPM banners for your sidebar. I’ve no problem with that. Thanks for asking!

    Love the new site! I’ve used WordPress since the beginning. I’ve never used Blogger, always been really happy with WordPress (even though I’m using a REALLY old version!). We host our own site, so it always made sense.

    It looks awesome, enjoy!

    Char says

    Laura – the new site is FABULOUS! You will be so much happier on a Word Press platform.

    Menu looks great as usual. And I’m a bit envious that you get to go out of town.

    I love your new look (although I didn’t mind the neon either 😉 I think that wordpress is a little harder to work with than blogger in some ways. I’d love to hear why you made the switch!!

    I’m a day late for my first MPM. I blame it on the stomach bug.
    I love the new site, but then I liked the neon colors on the old site, too. They really woke me up in the morning.
    Thanks for hosting MPM. 🙂

    I love the new look! I’m not participating in Menu Plan Monday this week – moving kind of knocks the whole eating at home thing off kilter.

    I may have to try your recipes though – they sound quite tasty!

    I am so happy for you. Congratulations!!
    I’m glad you’re keeping the chair, lamp, etc. They are so homey and kind of reassuring when you log on….Love the menu plan idea. It makes life so much easier. Thank you.
