Sunday Fun – Consignment Sale and Meal Planning… YEAH, that’s FUN!!!
unday Funday – not so much… Anyone else ever get themselves into too much to handle at one time? I am famous for doing that to myself… this weekend (being a long weekend) I committed myself to going through some clothes and FINALLY getting situated with the WINTER clothes (and putting away the shorts and swimsuits for GAWD SAKES!!!) I know I have mentioned MANY times that organization is not my strong suit… if it was I could probably RULE THE WORLD – doncha’ know??!! Anyhow – in this house, I swear, we have enough clothes for a small country… yet I have a tough time finding clean underwear…. SERIOUSLY – is that TMI? Oh well, we’re all friends here, right?? And where in the name of all that is good and wholley is that bag of heavy sweat-shirts that I put away to be easily accessible when I need it – which is NOW…. UGH!!
Anyhow, I have a wonderful friend that is the “organizational queen” and she and another friend own and operate a bi-annual consignment sale which is coming up… Check out MOTHERTIME MARKETPLACE here – HI Jen and Jessi!! AND I say I am going to get rid of the clothes once and for all, every single time – I mean really, last time I actually got my act together and took clothes I made over $500… So that is my goal… I am bagging up all I can (I am going to use the “Mommy REP. – Helper Service” and take a reduced commission but will have someone else do all the work for me – Hi Brandi!!) and am excited about the reduction of clothes we will have to dig through to find something; 1 – weather appropriate, 2 – that actually fits… and a pair of clean underwear!!!
So anyhow, baby steps here… I have one full big black garbage bag and want to have at least a second by the end of the weekend… which in my twisted mind has me home working so I might as well think about my weekly meal plan and multi-task myself half to death… LOL! See my issues??? And since I am thinking about the week’s meal plan, I might as well document the horror of it all so someone can laugh WITH me…. You are laughing WITH me – and not AT me – right????
So back in the kitchen I go – where I do really LOVE to be, I just wish I had a “cleaner up – er” to follow me around…don’t we all! Anyhow, making my meal plan on Sundays really allows me to plan ahead and get a head start on everything for the week. For example, we like to have a big family meal on Sundays and I try to make a bunch extra of whatever the main course is and then plan some quick week night meals from the leftovers. This week I chose a ham dinner for our Sunday Meal and then picked out a few more ham dishes for the week. One of the meals we have all been craving is Chicken Cordon Blue so I added it to the meal plan ~ and realizing I need chunked chicken, I am actually making the chicken today and picking a few other meals including the chicken to round out the week’s meals.
So here is the WEEKLY MEAL PLAN:
SUNDAY: Ham Dinner (Did you know that pouring soda/pop over your ham reduces the “saltiness” – it has made a HUGE difference in the taste of my hams and I will never NOT use it again!!)
MONDAY: Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole (New Recipe I’ll share this week)
TUESDAY: Baked Fried Chicken with a Salad
WEDNESDAY: Baked Ziti – Olive Garden Recipe w/Alfredo and Leftovers of Salad and Chicken
THURSDAY: Ham Sliders (another new recipe that I am trying out as our SuperBowl highlight)and Baked Mac’n’Cheese using Gnocchi – made in the crockpot!
FRIDAY: Not so Sloppy Joes – my friend Julie introduced these to me and I have to try them… Grands biscuits, flattened out and filled and folded over sloppy joe mix, with cheese of course… and baked to perfection…. YUMM – I can’t wait!!
SATURDAY: Ham and Cheese Braid
SUNDAY: Turkey Dinner – YUP, another biggie to have lots of leftovers and plan some easy meals for the next week!
So – how is your weekend going? Does anyone else want to share their dysfunction?? How about what you plan to eat this week?? Let’s CHAT!!!!
