Weekly Menu, Dec 4

I feel like such a bad person for not having a menu last week. I was trying really hard to stick with home cooking, but it was hard with our crazy schedule and playing catch-up from our thanksgiving travels. We made it though! Woohoo! Now I’m ready for a new week and hopefully a fun menu.

I’m trying a new pin this week, which I’ve linked up if you want to try it too. Otherwise I’m trying to stick to the basics as we continue with the chaos of the season.

I hope the festive season is treating you well so far. We are going to spend the week decorating it all up! Time to get lights up and music boxes out. We can also hang stockings, but the tree will wait until it’s closer to the big day. It’s just too warm and dry here.


Enjoy! Have a fantastic cooking week!

I've Been Distracted...

The holidays were amazing! And very, very busy. Bear with me as I get things back together. I hope to have a menu up for the week tomorrow. The sooner the better...we had take out tonight and a box of mac n cheese the night before. Eek! Stay posted! I'll be back. Very soon.

Weekly Menu, Nov 14

Ugh, last week was messy. I had to do a lot of last-minute switch up based on what I had on-hand. My poor little girl was sick the first half of the week and it kept me at home. No problem, that's the great thing about having a flexible plan, right? It also helps to keep a well-stocked pantry. Mine is pretty picked over now; time to restock.

I tried my hand at kombucha this week. I friend donated a Scoby and I went for it. It had a week to brew so today I divided it up into my bottles and added juice to each of them. They are now sitting in the cabinet for a second ferment. I like the carbonation created so I'm hoping it all works right. I brewed up some more tea and added the scoby, so I'm hoping it's working it's magic once again. I've never had plain kombucha so I tasted it. I was surprised how good it was. The smell and flavor don't match, which is odd in a fun way. That said, I still really enjoy my juice added to it.

This week is going to be a wild and crazy week. I want to prep all things bread for thanksgiving celebrations. I am going to try freezing and transporting for our holiday celebration. This on top of all our regular craziness should be fantastic!
