Weekly Menu: March 4 – 10, 2018

YOU GUYS. I finally made the Homemade Blueberry RXBars! FINALLY! And they are tasty!

We’re continuing cleaning out our fridge and freezer in preparation for the move, and we’re making progress. The london broil for tonight’s dinner was the remnants of a much larger piece of meat. The chicken, bacon and barbecue sauce for the Monterey chicken are all taking up space. We always buy carrots in 5 lbs bags so roasted carrots seemed perfect. The remainder of my homemade sauerkraut, combined with a lb of hot dogs and a couple of small pork chops taking up freezer space will make Wednesday’s dinner. And leftover phyllo dough inspired the mushroom strudel.

Lastly I’ve been told I need to up my protein before I can go back to donating plasma, so I’m beefing up breakfast with high protein banana muffins! (I also have leftover overripe bananas, of course!)

Weekly Menu: February 24 – March 3, 2018

Hey everybody!

This week was much better than last week for me personally. I’ve still got a slight cough from my cold but it’s pretty much gone now. I’m packing and cleaning out the pantry and freezer to get ready for my move, 3 weeks from today. I’m really excited about the beef tacos and the sweet potato cinnamon rolls! Who wouldn’t be excited about cinnamon rolls FOR BREAKFAST?

And yes, life got away from me and I didn’t get around to making the RXBars… but they will get done today or tomorrow for later in the week.

Weekly Menu: February 18 – 24, 2018 plus PODCAST!

What. A. Week.

Allow me to catch you up, dear readers, on what’s been going on in my life. I’ve been spending the last month or so apartment hunting and planning a move. This past Monday my Boston Terrier, Bingley, had a dental cleaning and a small bit of excess tissue removed from his gums. Thankfully, that was entirely benign and he has recovered entirely from the dental cleaning. And, as of Friday morning I have an apartment! I’m getting a unit with an upgraded kitchen which I am SUPER excited to show you. I get the keys on the 15th of March and I will do my best not to disappear too much between now and then.

The next bit of exciting news is I am officially a podcaster!

Tune in to the first episode of Feast on History where Kari and I introduce ourselves and clue you in on what’s to come in our brand new podcast. I hope you’ll give it a listen and give us some feedback! And now, onto the menu!

I was underwhelmed by the sales this week so mostly this was a pantry cleanout week. I’m most excited about the Ham, Cabbage & Potato Soup and trying my hand at making homemade RX Bars. Oh and the DATE BARS. ❤ I’m getting hungry just thinking about them.
