Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - February 27, 2023

Good morning! It's the last Monday of February and spring will be here before we know it! I can hardly wait! 

How was your week and weekend? My week here was good and my weekend quiet. I piddled around the house most of the week, but didn't really accomplish much. I got some baking done and had a good day at work on Saturday. After church and lunch on Sunday I settled down to a gloriously good book and read the afternoon away. 

Now it's time to delve into a brand new week. Let's get started...shall we?

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

- Clean house
- Do laundry
- Take my car in for an oil change and its annual 'spring check-up'
- Wish Bud a Happy Birthday
- Flip the calendar page over to a brand new month
- Figure March budget
- Go to the bank
- Pay March bills
- Gear up for the 2023 Iditarod
- Plan St. Patty's Day celebration
- Work

This week's menu plan...

I still need to tweak the food situation. I can cook for a big family or a churchful just fine, but am wondering if I'll ever get the hang of cooking for just one. I didn't make but about half the meals that I had planned to last week and, even with eating a lot of leftovers, still ended up with a freezerful of extra meals. I guess that's not a bad thing, as long as I remember to schedule them into the menu in a timely fashion. 

Meals this week will largely be made up of leftovers...THM pancakes (or eggs and toast) for breakfast, homemade pizza, chicken ranch salad (or soup and salad) for lunch, and green chili burritos, oven-roasted chicken or meatloaf with fresh vegetables (baked Yukon Gold or baked sweet potato, corn-on-the-cob, and asparagus), or turkey burger and oven fries for suppers. One evening this week I have been invited to enjoy homemade Chinese with some of the fam! It's been a good long while since I've had Chinese, so I'm greatly looking forward it!

Well, that's all for today! You have a nice day and a great week ahead!

Until next time...

  1. I remember making a Lemon Chicken Chinese dish. I haven't made it forever. Need to do that again! Love ya, Angie

    1. Yes! I remember that and it was so good! So...when you make it, Ange, just let me know what time supper is ready! LOL! ;)

  2. Homemade Chinese food sounds delicious! Cooking for one can't be easy. My only experience with it was when I first moved into my own apartment, seems like I would eat a big lunch (usually out though as I was in my 20's and working full time) and then eat a very small dinner. Hope you have a wonderful week and happy almost March!

    1. It's not easy, Jean. I know there's got to be a way, but I haven't figured it out...yet! I will though! Happy almost March to you! Saw a flock of robins today and Amber's daffodils are in full bloom! Beautiful!!! <3
