Meal Plan #1

So I’m procrastinating on my homework and I figured I would work on my meal plan instead. So here goes…

I’ve been “pinteresting” a lot lately and I’m really excited to try these recipes. The items with links, I’ve never actually tried, but when I do make them I will take pictures and share our thoughts on it. I’ll share my recipes for the other items when I make them! I’m hoping next week to make slow cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken, Pork Shoulder and Black Beans, and a few other delicious things! Anyway, hope this helps to give you some ideas if you feel like you’re in a rut.

Just Checking In

Things have been pretty routine around here lately. The hubby goes off to work, I’m either at school or doing homework, and the dogs are always around- sleeping the day away. I’m taking one class at the school with 3 online classes.The 3 online classes are keeping me extremely busy, but I’m really liking being able to work on things at my own pace. The one thing I don’t like: two of my three online teachers grade things almost immediately so I know what my current grade is, which is awesome. However, my third teacher is 3 weeks behind grading things, so I have no clue where I stand, and it drives me crazy. I’m a little bit obsessive compulsive about things like this so I really can’t handle not knowing what I got a test 3 weeks ago. 

One of the diamonds in my wedding ring is loose, so I can’t wear the ring until it gets fixed. My grandma let me borrow a ring set for the meantime, but it turned out to be too big. I didn’t want to lose her rings, so I bought a pretty, but totally fake set online. They came today and I’m pretty happy with it. The funny thing is, my husband has been working out a lot lately, and he went outside in the dark to find our dog Lucy, because she wasn’t coming when he called her. At some point he flung his hand and his ring went flying off. We grabbed a couple of flashlights and luckily it only took like two minutes to find it! I’m glad we don’t have to pay to repair my ring AND replace his! 

I just wanted to say a quick hello, since I haven’t even started my meal plan for the week yet. I’m hoping to get that done tonight or tomorrow. I promise it will come soon.

Well Hello There!

Wow. So I kind of just disappeared for a very long time. I’m really very sorry about that. School and work consumed my life. But the good news is, I’m not working anymore. Yeah, that lasted long. I quit, I needed to focus on school. More good news, I’m taking on face to face class (that means we meet in person, btw) and THREE online classes. So since I spend the majority of my day life on the internet anyway, I’ll post here more often.

I don’t think I mentioned before that my stepmom changed schools, so while I used to volunteer in her kindergarten class, I am now volunteering for 5th graders. Yikes, now I have to answer hard questions about math and stuff. I’ve been really busy with school so I haven’t made it in much this year, but I am really enjoying the older kids, although I really do miss the little ones.

Okay, so I’ve rambled enough for one post. My thoughts are that for the time being most of my posts will be my menu plan for the week. In those posts I’ll link to the recipes I’ll use if they aren’t one of my own. If they are one of own of course I’ll share it as well. If I’ve never tried a recipe before I’ll take pictures and share any changes I made and our review of the meal. Let me say that I hate when people make huge huge changes to a recipe and then rate it. If you make one small change then alright, but you can’t change half of the recipe and then share your thoughts, it’s no longer the same recipe at that point! It drives me nuts. So I promise I won’t do that.
