As I write this the sun is shining! Oh, the sun, how I have missed it this past week. It is still chilly but the sun makes it bearable. I hope the sun is shining where you are and you are enjoying it as much as I do.
Getting back into the swing of things after the holidays has been a challenge for me. I’m pressing in though and finding some success. I’m hoping this week will be a more “normal” week back in the routine of school and household. I did make my monthly menu plan and even went into February a bit so feeling success in that area….it’s the small things. I’ll take it where I can get it.
I made some Oatmeal Cookies this past week and some for my mom with raisins, next time I think I will make them with raisins and dark chocolate chunks. They will be reminiscent of the Kashi Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk cookies that I used to get. I also made some Maple Nut Granola, I changed that up a bit, I can’t really tolerate nuts now so I used pumpkin seeds instead. It was a tasty change, that I enjoyed, though I do miss pecans which was my favorite nut.
Menu for the week:
Penne Chicken Italiano
Chicken Fried Steak
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
