S - Lemon Rosemary Roasted Chicken w/ some kind of spuds and salad or asparagus (if enough is up by then...it's starting!)

I'm also finishing the emptying of the kitchen for the remodel this week.  That means this is my last week to try to do some extra cooking or baking for the freezer.  I hope to make a couple of batches of bread and muffins and waffles and perhaps also some extra soup or chili to be reheated at a later date.  The ceiling and walls are coming down! Whoot!


  1. I love how you share your menus! I might try to do that! Im working really hard on sticking to planning meals. im so scatterbrained i almost never follow through but im working on it! youre inspiring! :)

  2. I'm glad that it inspires you. :) I am really scatterbrained too actually. It's only since having baby # 3 and then especially with #4 that I realized it was a MUST for me to be more organized. It is just too crazy to expect myself to pull supper out of thin air at 4pm when I'm tired and everyone is crabby and hungry. My creative side really balks at the idea of having it all planned out. So I think of it more as deciding ahead of time....being creative ahead of time...so that I actually have time to make a good decision and make something worthwhile.
    When I first started out I planned just 3 or 4 meals a week. You might try that! :)
