    12/26 Christmas leftovers
    12/27 Chicken and spinach enchiladas/spanish rice
    12/28 Chicken alfredo/ciabatta garlic bread
    12/29 Tilapia/cous cous/veg

    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 .

    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!

    Welcome! I hope you find this thread a great information source!

    It's called OCD... :lmao: (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!
