Tripped over my menu planning the last few months.. just not interested in cooking, which has turned into bad decisions for my waist line lol.


Back on track as soon as we get home from visiting family. Ive been digging through magazines and trying to get my head back in to meal planning.

I need new skillets, so buying all new this week .. I am sure that will help spark my interest again. I am also considering new dishes. My old stuff is beautiful but pretty dated , Lenox Poppies on Blue about 16 years old, I am slowly losing pieces , down to three bowls as of yesterday lol. I am wanting just a plain white set, looking at Mikasa Anitque White .. or there is a Wedgewood white set I like.

Nothing like new kitchen goodies to get ya in the mood to cook .

12/29 Tilapia/cous cous/veg
12/30 Creamed chicken and biscuits/some sort of veg

Not sure beyond that. I need to go grocery shopping and also make a trip to Sam's to stock up on chicken, ground turkey and fish.

Looking forward to getting some new ideas for dinner.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy our little thread. If you see anything that looks good in someone's meal plan, don't hesitate to ask about it or for a recipe. We love to share!

It's called OCD... (Well, I do actually have it, but that was more of a joke). Really though, it helps me by keeping me accountable for what I eat. Earlier in the month I decided to eat healthier and make it my new lifestyle. I always look at it again weekly to make sure things still sound good or if I can switch something to save money. So, it is always subject to change!

Wow! So glad you started a part 2 thread. I was intimidated by the large first thread.

I can't wait to get inspired to eat at home in 2012. We are currently planning to eat out only 1 night for the entire month in 2012.

Here is what I'm having this week (my son's bday is also on the 29th. Must be a popular day to have a bday).

M: Homemade lasagna, garlic parmesan rolls and salad (lasagna was sooo good)
T: leftover lasagna, bread and salad
W: Ham (leftover) with butter beans and salad
Th: Taking DS out for his birthday unless he wants to just eat in
F: Our annual family snack party featuring chicken rolled tacos, bagel pizza, loaded nachos, bbq wings and just about every other carb filled treat under the sun. Since it's only once per year it's okay.
S: Hot dog and sauerkraut
Sun: Pork and sauerkraut (both Sat and Sun were DH's idea)

We just made the decision to send our son to a private school for 6th grade so, yep, we're in mega-budget mode now! I don't mind - it's a great opportunity for him - and we've explained that this decision will change a lot about how our family lives and that we'll all have to pull together to make it work. Job #1: eating at home, packing lunches, homemade snacks and so on. Healthier for our bodies and our pocketbooks!

Anyway, here it goes for this week...

Monday: Christmas dinner leftovers (pork roast diced into gravy, mashed potatoes made into potato pancakes, braised carrots and olives)
Tuesday: Qdoba-style burritos (tomato rice, black beans, seasoned meat, homemade guac, cheese, salsa)
Wednesday: pasta with meatsauce, salad
Thursday: Some kind of homemade veggie soup; popovers
Friday: Ham steaks, broccoli fritters, onion rice, herbed carrots
Saturday: My birthday! Potluck dinner and party with friends, not sure what I'll bring yet.

No problem. I have been getting pretty good on my phone. I am in south Texas right now without my computer.

This week has been fun!

I made homemade egg nog for the first time. I made the cooked version.

Last night I made scalopped potatoes with ham. Today I am starting to make the meat for my tamale making day tomorrow. I've got a pork shoulder in the crockpot and a chicken defrosting because there are giblets I have to get out.

I am going to finish bagging up the ham from Xmas today and might make split pea soup tonight. I also will be making Denver omelets tomorrow for breakfast.

This sounds very good. How do you make them? We don't have that restaurant around here. Can you use dry black beans? I have a bunch but don't really know what to do with them. How do you make your quac? I love the stuff! Thank you for sharing!!!
