Putting Up The Cake Pans

Until I get my life more organized and I have a little more time, I am putting away my cake pans. At least until June when Baby "J" turns one.

New Year..New Goal!

I recently watched the Julie & Julia movie. I loved it. Only it really made me hungry watching it. I have a gazillion cookbooks and I thought I could do something like that....NOT! All though it sounds like fun. I have 3 kids ranging in age from 3 to 3 months. There is just NOWAY I could put that kind of time into something like that. (Watch the movie to see what I am talking about)

So I have decided to do more of my part in getting this blog a going! (I am not in a crafty mood right now so this is more of a hobby) I will start planning Menus and posting them. It will kinda fun to try new things and share how they turn out. This is a very big challenge for me because I am not a fan of cooking dinner lately. Not only do I have to worry about Breakfast and lunch and don't forget to throw in those snacks in between AND make sure everything is healthy. Then it comes to Dinner... Hubby would like a home cooked meal when he comes home. (thank goodness he is A OK with leftovers)

So for my goal I HOPE to post every Wednesday my week long menu. I am not saying that I am going to fully stick to it because sometimes you just have those rare moments when what you have planned is not what you want that day. I have found that making a menu for my family has really helped with Grocery Shopping. Tuesday night I make the menu and the shopping list for the recipes that are needed. (I have chosen mid week because the ads come out on Tues and sales start wed in my area).

I know this is a work in progress and I will do my best to share somewhat Healthy Meals. And I think to start out I am only going to share My dinner Menu's and will include some of the recipes that I find. Please feel free to leave comments of your menus and suggestions.

Well I need to get planning because the New Year is just around the corner!
Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
