Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I am feeling much better emotionally and sometime soon I’ll gather my thoughts and explain why. Thanks for all your wonderful comments.
Due to some schedule changes in our home this past week I never got around to making two of the recipes I had planned. Not a big deal though because I can just move them forward to this week if I want, I love the flexibility of menu planning!
Each week I try and share a new menu planning resource with you if I come across something that I think would be helpful to others. This one is brilliant and although it doesn’t help us so much with our own menu planning it is an awesome FREE service if you are trying to coordinate meals for others. It’s called Food Tidings, a website that exists to simplify the process of organizing meals for friends or family members in a transitional time of life. For someone who has just had a baby, recovering from surgery or injury, grieving the passing of a loved one, confined to bed rest, and almost anything else, receiving dinners from loved ones can be very comforting and helpful. I just signed up and created a “dummy” schedule just to see how it works and it’s amazingly simple and efficient. Once you’ve got a schedule created you can quickly email others giving them the opportunity to choose a day to bring a meal that is convenient for them. As an organizing junkie, this kind of simple streamlining makes me very very happy.
So here is what’s on our menu. Have a great week all!
Tuesday: Pepperoni Pasta
Wednesday: Crockpot Apple, Cheddar & Turkey Meatballs (these look so good, I just have to try them!) served with rice
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Baked Chicken and Acorn Squash
Saturday: Grilled steak, baked potatoes and grilled garden veggies
Sunday: Casual night aka last ditch fridge clean out
