Happy Homemaker Monday - 07/27/20156:32 AM
Good morning everyone, hope you've had a fantastic weekend. Mine was pretty darn good, I took Jasmine to a Fall Out Boy concert in Dallas and we had an amazing time.
Unfortunately I seem to have picked up something because last night I felt absolutely dreadful and still not feeling 100% today. Not sure what is going on, but hoping it's just something temporary.
Right, on to our Happy Homemaker Monday.....
On the weather front:
We've been seeing triple digits, which is not bad considering we lived in Arizona for 7 years, so 're quite used to this heat. Just leave the humidity out and I'm good. We do expect some rain on Friday though and lower temps.
On my bedside table:
A Pattern of Lies by Charles Todd
The Ones we Trust by Kimberly Belle
On my TV:
Been watching my vlogs, I have followed The Witts for a long long time, and they are my favorite vloggers, but recently discovered The Michalaks and am completely besotted with their videos, the editing is out of this world, so I've been binging from their very first vlog. Another favorite of mine is Mrs Meldrum.
On the menu for tonight:
Smoked Sausage and Potato Skillet with Green Beans
On the menu for this week:
Monday - smoked Sausage and Potato Skilled with Green Beans
Tuesday - Biscuits and Gravy
Wednesday - Bacon and Cheddar Burgers, Fries
Thursday - Hamburger Helper, Salad
Friday - Grocery shopping
On my To Do List:
Laundry - One load of towels, Jasmine's laundry, Nick's laundry
Mopping and Vacuuming
New Recipe I tried last week:
I love Coconut Macaroons and over the years I've tried numerous recipes which never seemed to quite come out well. I just recently came across one that I tried last week and it was so good, I'll be sharing it on the food blog soon.
In the craft basket:
Foam Armor for Jasmine's cosplay
Looking forward to:
A relaxed week, getting some things done in the house and hopefully making a quick trip to Lawton this weekend.
Homemaking Tip for this week:
I have a notebook that I use just for meal planning and grocery shopping. I write down the menu on one page and the grocery list on the opposite page, and I take the notebook with me to the grocery store, just seems to help. Also, I can flip back through previous menus for ideas.
Favorite photo from last week:
Lesson learned the past few days:
We're only as old as we allow ourselves to be
On my Prayer List:
Myself, for strength, for health and for my heart not to turn bitter towards certain people
