It's not even 6:30pm and I am ready for bed. Really!
I've been moving kinda slow today, so I'm thankful that I got all my major housework done yesterday, including all the laundry that needed to be washed and put away.
The only thing I really needed to work on today, was my menu planning, and I don't know what is going on, but I'm just not feeling it.
I seem to go through these phases where it seems to take me days to come up with a plan that I'm happy with. There's a lot of writing, erasing, and switching of meals, and that's usually when I step away and leave it be.
By the time I return to it in a few days, it finally seems to flow.
Finished my menu plan today with the help of some of my favorite cookbooks.
I also pulled out one of the newest I found at Goodwill, The Settlement Cookbook. Now usually I much prefer a book with pictures, because I like seeing what the end result should look like, but as time has gone by I've started enjoy these older ones with just the recipes.
This particular one is filled with little notes in pencil, and even sticker stars of different colors. I'm assuming one of it's previous owners used a color coded chart of some kind, maybe different colors for how much they enjoyed a recipe? Who knows.
The recipe for Pierogies caught my eye because my wonderful mother in law always told me the story of how she would make pierogies with her neighbor while their husbands worked swing shift. They were both marine wives :)
I'll have to make some soon, I do love Pierogies.
Been looking through my crochet projects for some inspiration, not sure exactly what I want to make next.
This one is so beautiful and I really need to finish it.
This morning I watched the first episode of a new 5 part drama series on ITV, called "Lightfields". It premiered last night.
New Supernatural Drama spanning over 3 time periods, starting in 1944. A tragic death in 1944 sends ghostly ripples down the years ensuring that truth will eventually surface, whatever the cost.
Watch on ITVplayer
Or watch the first episode online, here
Really enjoyed the first episode and can't wait for the next one. Also have some great shows coming up like Broadchurch on ITV, a murder mystery series starring David Tennant from Doctor Who.
Shetland on BBC, another murder mystery set against the beautiful Scottish backdrop.
Dancing on the Edge on BBC, currently playing. 1930's drama about a jazz band in London. You can catch up with the episodes on BBC iplayer, or online here.
The one I'm most excited about is premiering on Sunday, on the History Channel. The Bible. It looks phenomenal and we'll be watching as a family. You can watch a preview for it here.
I have a grocery list to finish and some bills to set up for tomorrow, so I'll cut this one short.
Good night everyone :)
