Our Menu (Week of February 12, 2012)

I didn’t get to several things on my menu plan last week.  I took the easy route a few nights and pulled items from the freezer or made simple meals on the fly.  This week, although we have a schedule that will keep us on the run, I sense a good week for my kitchen and me.

This year I’ve found the more intentional I am about looking on the bright side, seeing the blessings in mundane or dreaded tasks, and not stewing over minor inconveniences or hiccups in my life, the more relaxed and content I am.   Gee, surprise, surprise.  🙂

I try to stick with my “intentional” ways by scheduling extra kitchen time into my week to test out new recipes or bake with my little girl.  I can get my ommmmm on without ever stepping into a yoga class–major bonus because I am not a yoga gal.
