This and That
In less than one week I'll be teaching my first knitting class, because of that and because I keep forgetting stuff I bought a planner. I think it's going to help me immensely. I love opening it up and seeing what I want to do or I write down what events are going to happen. My son just registered for the GRE and the Math Subject test-boy oh boy are they expensive. Anyways, I jotted down in the planner the days he is scheduled. We live "out there" so it's a production and traveling is involved.
This is my second week of menu planning. Menu planning for me is checking the pantry and freezer for meals I already own or partially own and then fleshing out the odd days with what I want to purchase. I still wake up and decide what I feel like making. Now I have a list at my fingertips to choose from. The fish dinner on that list has been pushed back over a week....I'm not that keen on that one! I wrote out all of the meals that I make that we like so that's my master list when my brain is stumped on creating the menu.
Next weekend our son goes back to his campus after having SIX weeks off. Once he is safely there, I'm incorporating new recipes at least once a week to get out of the doldrums of repetitive meals. It's going to be yummy and fun. It will also be so much more inexpensive.
I stumbled across all of my mom's straight metal knitting needles and a spare packet of estate sale needles that a friend picked up for me. My creative side decided to make a knitting needle bouquet. I really like it even though I rarely knit with straights. See that bare corner there to the left? I would love to have a tall skinny shelf for cookbooks. However, I'm in a no spending mood. So for now I dream.
Have a lovely weekend! What are you go to meals that you serve every week?
