Menu Plan Monday ~ August 11th (and a little rambling.. as always)

Well, we ended up eating out a few times this week so there will be some repeats! But I don't mind.. it just means I can save $$ on our grocery bill!

Menu for the week:

Baked Flounder (w/ a little lemon, salt and pepper), Green Beans, Wild Rice (repeat)

Crock Pot Short Ribs, Biscuits (I had to come back and edit this to add that this is a new recipe that I got from Gourmet Momma. I'll let you know how it turns out.. I've visited the site many times and the photos always look so good! And I love that she gives the nutritional info as well!)

Blueberry Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs (repeat)

Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Sliced Cucumber & Baby Carrots with Dressing

Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage (using a few recipes to make my own) over some kind of noodles (whatever I have in the pantry), Salad

Since I've been having to repeat a lot of my meals, I'm only going to plan for 5 meals this week; instead of 6!

There's not many great sales going on this week but that seems to be the way it goes sometimes. (Except that Publix milk is on sale for $3.79)

(Breakfasts, Lunches & Snacks as usual!)

Oh and I'm going to be making some yummy cookies this week.. just because I can! :)

In other news....

I'm attempting to do some organizing today! (HAHAH!) My sister is coming over tonight to help with that too!

I'm organizing my shoes in my closet (and getting rid of many that I will never be able to wear.. Before Luke I was a size 7.5-8... and now I'm a 8.5... I must accept the fact that my feet will never be the same!!)

We're also going to be working on our computer/scrap/junk room. It's always a disaster. We have attempted to work on it in the past many, many times.... and it will occasionally look decent.. but most of the time, it's a huge mess.

And hopefully we'll get to do some painting in Eli's room. And by 'we' I mean.. my sister. ;) I think 'we're' going to attempt some polka dots on the wall. I'll post some pictures if it turns out cute!

Now, I must go and re-write my grocery list... Luke just ripped it up in a few dozen pieces!!!

On the pancakes, your recipe says white flour - is that all purpose or self-rising. I hate to ask, but I have both and wouldn't know which to use. Pancakes sound great for supper, but David's insulin pump stopped working last night and he is having to take shots until his pump comes in tomorrow. You wouldn't think it would be a big deal, but he's trying to simulate the insulin delivery of the pump with syringes, which means a shot of insulin every hour or two. I feel sorry for him. We didn't rest well last night out of worrying about his sugar going too high without the constant delivery of the base insulin. Keep him in your prayers tonight!

Those cookies sound great! If you bake them by Wednesday I'd love to sample one Wednesday night!

Oh no, please do not tell me my feet are going to get bigger! I haven't noticed that yet, but there are nine weeks, six days left!

If you help Aunt B paint Eli's room, make sure the room is ventilated well. I hope it turns out like you want it too!

Hey, I was just going to tell you that I saved some shoes from the dreaded foot growth of pregnancy and I can actually wear them again now! I use to wear an 8-8.5. When I got pregnant I had to wear a 9.5-10. Now I wear an 8.5 again...One day I tried some of my pre-pregnancy shoes on and they actually fit again! I was so excited! Anyway, I just wanted you to know that!! I don't think they are exactly the same size they once were....but they did shrink some!

Donna don't tell her that. I want the closet cleaned out.
