Master 'To Do' List and Menu Plan Monday - December 4, 2022

It's a foggy morning here on the tallgrass prairie of Southwest Missouri...47 degrees and cloudy, but still not bad for the first the week of December.

How was your week and weekend? My week ended on a good note here. I got paid, ran errands, and paid bills on Friday; I worked at the park on Saturday. Sunday evening my boss and his fiance came over for supper. We had a nice visit and I enjoyed the evening very much!

Now, here it is Monday morning, and the week ahead promises to be a full, but fun one. Let's take a look, shall we?

This week's master 'to do' list...

- clean house
- do laundry
- make a detailed plan for the week
- run errands
- go grocery shopping
- make a gingerbread house
- finish writing and mailing Christmas cards
- enjoy Family Christmas with my children and grands

This week's menu plan...

This week my plan is to focus on fresh items (apples, oranges, potatoes, onions, and spinach) and frozen items (turkey breast, red beans, homemade pizza, Good Earth Rolls, wheat bran muffins). 

Possible meal ideas include muffins and yogurt for breakfast, slices of pizza for lunch, Guatemalan Red Beans and RiceChicken With Black Beans and Rice (using chopped turkey instead of chicken, of course), or Turkey and Lentil Soup for supper. 

I've also got a leftover turkey burger and two packages of cream cheese that need to be used. I will probably have the turkey burger for lunch or supper today with homemade oven fries and figure out something to use the cream cheese in for Family Christmas.

Well, that's it for today on my end! How is your Monday going? Have a nice day and a great week ahead!

Until next time...


  1. If you happen to have some marshmallow fluff/creme around there, you can mix them together (soften the cheese first) in a stand mixer for a quick and easy fruit dip. It's really good! I had a long list today but didn't get very far, didn't sleep great and that always makes a difference with me. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Sounds wonderful, Jean! Thanks for the idea! Bet this would be great with strawberries and grapes! Yum! Hope you got caught up on your zzz's and hope your week is going well! Blessings!
