The other night I tweeted that I had cut down my inbox to a mere 14 emails AND planned a menu for the week. What a great feeling that is! I'm happy to report that, while my inbox didn't stay at 14, I've managed to keep it below 25, which is always my goal. I know this will not stay that way, but for now it perpetuates the illusion of control that I love so much.
The other thing that makes me feel in control is having my menu planned for the week. And so, while it's a little late, I thought I'd share what we're having this week at the Whalens, with links to many of the recipes in case you'd like to plan a menu of your own. I used my Pinterest "Food Faves" board this time for my planning and it was a fast process! Plus it's nice to finally make some of the many delicious looking recipes I've pinned.
Here they are, in no certain order:
Teriyaki Chicken over Rice, Roasted Broccoli
Chicken and Gravy over egg noodles, black eyed peas
Pork Chops, Stuffing, Lima Beans
Pot Roast, Carrots and Onions, Mashed Potatoes
Crockpot Beef Fajitas
Pork Roast, Green Beans, Roasted Potatoes
Chicken Drumsticks, Corn, Rice Pilaf
Breakfast for dinner: scrambled eggs, grits, bacon, easy apple dumplings
And don't forget dessert! I love bars so I got the ingredients to make these:
Deep Dish Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars
No Bake Reese's Bars
Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Brownies
