Menu Plans

I've been thinking about menu planning, following this post by Tsh over at Simple Mom. (GREAT blog- lots of really good ideas!)

What I'm thinking is, this is a great idea. I would love to do this.
Somehow, though, it doesn't work for me.
And you would think it would work for me, given my love for routine, and the OCD and all!

But I love food. Nearly every day, I wake up with something on my mind, or I see something, or think I smell something, and it's all I can think about until I make it.
Sometimes it's not even about the eating- the cravings are sometimes just to make it.

Compound this with the fact that I live on an island with limited ferry service and you have a recipe for some very interesting tweaks to recipes!

While this idea doesn't quite work for my (insane) life, it remains a Great Idea.

One I thought I should share with you. Go check out Tsh's menu plan, and make it work for you.

I, meanwhile, am battling cravings for this:


But, really, it may just be for this:


Either way, it ain't happening today.

I may just have to settle for this:



  1. Ok, not fair showing these gorgeous food photos and I'm hungry ;)

    I agree planning would make it easier..but sometimes when I get home..I don't want to make what I planned...such is the dilemma huh..

  2. The turkey looks yummy and the stuffing even yummier. Looks like a coconut bar with chocolate & nuts - ooooh pour me a cup of coffee or a big glass of milk and I'm all set.

  3. Oh, I hate to tell you what's in my oven right now!!! And I absolutely love stuffing, minus that awful celery! We had Mexican food for Thanksgiving, so my kids requested Thanksgiving dinner this weekend.

    You could just make stuffing in a crock pot and skip the healthy part!!!

  4. that 7-layer bars???? Looks delicious. But, I'm with you. Stuffing is where it's at!
