This Week In My Home: Settling In To The New Year

We've had a wonderfully restful Saturday.  Just what was needed.  I'm feeling more like myself and ready to tackle my home and go over my Resolutions to see where I am incorporating them a where I need to get to work.  First on my list is always planning meals.  I've been over my refrigerator and just discovered it is burgeoning with far more leftovers than I'd supposed.  I'll be putting several single serve portions of things into the freezer, far too much there to be eaten by one.

breakfast:  Banana/pineapple smoothie, toast (x2 for me)
                   Fried eggs and toast (x2 John)
                   French Toast, Bacon
                   Rice Pudding (leftovers and why not?  It's made the same as butterscotch oatmeal)
                   Biscuits (leftovers) with bacon, egg and cheese filling
                   Cheese Omelet, Hash browns, Toast
                   Bagels with Cream Cheese, Clementines

suppers:  Cheese Quesadillas, Mexican Hot Chocolate
                Cream of Tomato Soup, Peanut Butter Crackers
                Sausage Dogs, Chips
                Veg Beef Soup (x2 me)
                Turkey and gravy over toast
                 Loaded Baked Potatoes

Dinners:  Turkey, Dressing, Gravy, Sweet Potato halves, Pineapple Salad, Cranberry Sauce

on my own (x2)
