This Week In My Home: Menu Plan and Work Week
The weeks seem to be rushing towards the inevitable conclusion of the end of the year. I feel truly that I've only just begun each week and it is Friday and the end all over again. I want to wrestle with time a bit and tell it to slow down, sit on it if I must to keep it from flying away from me. But it's like trying to wrestle with the wind...It can neither be captured nor sat upon and it will do what it will do. Right now it seems determined to speed along and leave me reeling.
Our meat stores are seriously low, especially in the poultry department. Never mind. I can always purchase more of that nearby. It's the beef we want to stretch a bit harder and that we shall do. I've a number of dishes on a list nearby that I've thought of over the past week or two which sound lovely for cooler weather. Things like cabbage rolls and picallily over rice, Swedish meatballs and Baked Chicken and Dumplings and Pot Roast with Cherries.
Let's get on with the meal plans shall we? I'm getting awfully hungry!

Jobs This Week
Clean out the dishes and glassware cabinets in the kitchen
I'm leaving this week open. I want to make it into town to the booth and would like to take new stock with me when I got in. But I also have a big family weekend coming up and I need time to prepare myself mentally and physically for it all, so I'm slacking off on the additional duty that I normally set for myself and doing whatever is required to make the weekend go very smoothly and easily. The only 'extra' planned tasks this week are to clean up the guest room very nicely, right after I tag a few new items for the booth (need to carry those in this week and replace what's sold). I also hope to get a day out to do some thrifting, but we'll see.
