Menu for the Week (1/28/13 through 2/3/13)

My two girls and me!  (Wishing it was that green outside right now!)
How was your weekend?  Over too quick is what my weekend was...  I think I need a few more days in my weekend, but here we are .. rise and shine... its Monday morning!

I did make it to the YMCA this morning!  Got a little run in.  Since my surgery, I haven't gotten back with my running schedule but this morning was a step in the right direction.  The people at the YMCA always inspire me.  I saw all types of people there this morning... young ladies who are in high school, up early for a morning run, elderly people who have health issues and who truly inspire me and make me realize that I have ABSOLUTELY no excuse not to be there, and also friends and acquaintenaces that I only see at the Y.  We support each other!  A friend this morning there told me "ugh... this didn't feel good this morning."  I told her, "yes, but we made it!  And now we can say we did it and got it done!" 

I actually got some good cooking done yesterday and some of those recipes I will post during the week.  I had some 5 Minute a Day dough in my fridge, on its last days of life, so I made some Homemade Pizza Hot Pockets with it.  My husband had one for supper fresh from the oven and I froze the rest for his lunches.  I mixed up some peanut butter cookies.  I normally don't make a lot of cookies but I had some cookie dough in the fridge the other day and having the cookies around was so nice!  I like to make a batch of cookie dough, bake a couple, and freeze the rest (dropped on the cookie sheet but frozen and bagged for baking later).  It's fun to just bake a few cookies and not have a huge baking day to stress out about when you want a quick snack.

I also had some pinto beans languishing in my fridge.  I froze those in about 2 cup portions for using as Cheese Beans or chili, or even just "beans and cornbread."  I could have let them ruin, but I felt good getting those leftovers put away for later.  Saved me money and saved them from the trash can!  I also had about one serving of my Free Soup in there.  I froze that in a canning jar for taking for lunch one day.  Ahh.... to get all that done felt so good!

Here's my Menu Plan for the week:


  • Sandwiches (turkey or PB&J)
  • Homemade Hot Pockets (recipe coming this week)
  • Pizza cups
  • Corndog Muffins in the freezer


  • Homemade Apple Pie
  • Peanut Butter Cookies (recipe coming this week)

  1. Hi Gina. You left a comment on my blog about the posh pillowcases I made. I used a dk weight cotton. You will need to make sure that whatever you use will stand up to many washings. I've had mine for over 2 years now and they still look good. I use them everyday. Here is a link to some very pretty pictures of posh pillowcases that this woman makes and sells in her etsy shop.
    Good luck!
