Hi, folks!  I am posting this a day early because I have a photo challenge post going up tomorrow and I decided two posts in one day was probably a little much.  I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Ours was busy, but good.  C & I got an eye exam on Saturday and I am now officially old because I have to have bifocals.  Yuck!  I knew I was having trouble reading, but I really hadn’t considered the fact that bifocals may be needed.  When the doctor adjusted the lens with the bifocals it made a huge difference and I hope they help my eyes feel less tired by the end of a long day working at a computer.  Oh, well, I guess it could be worse.  I can still see after all!

It was also a great weekend of college basketball and we cheered on the University of Kentucky as hard as we could.  It was so much fun!! 

The weather is supposed to be really nice this week and I hope to get outside and start cleaning up the flower beds and maybe starting building my new raised beds with a lot of help from C. 

Have a great week!

Good Monday morning! Sorry I was MIA last week, but I just wasn’t feeling up to snuff.  I thought it was just the winter weather blues until I started having tons of sinus drainage by the end of the week.  It turns out I was rocking a pretty severe sinus infection so after a shot and a few pills, I feel SO much better! Now that I am back to normal, there are so many things I want to do!

C & I are planning to update our raised gardens beds with cedar boards and add a couple of extra beds while we are at it.  I can’t wait! Now if the weather will just cooperate.  Speaking of gardening, please check back on Wednesday to see how my seedlings are doing.  

I have a couple of new recipes on the list this week that I hope are keepers.  I will let you know!

Dr. Pepper pulled pork (new) with curly fries

Tacos with salad

Grilled hamburgers with oven fries

Panko pork chops (new) with butter roasted potatoes & salad

Pizza night

One pot baked rotini with cheesy bread

Well, folks, there is light at then end of the tunnel.  We have had warmer temperatures and sunshine finally in the last few days.  What a change from last Monday and Tuesday when we were being bombarded with this:

I am so glad to see all of that mess gone!  I was so inspired by the warmer weather that I started a few seeds on Saturday.  Our breakfast table is now temporarily a gardening table.

We have a couple of fun things going on this week so I am keeping the menu on the simple side.  Our local library is having a photography class one evening and I am excited about that.  Then the second annual Kentucky Green Living Fair is next weekend in Somerset and we can’t wait!  Last year’s fair was so much fun and informational so I expect this year will be even better.  If you are in the area, come and check it out.

I am including one new recipe to try if time permits.  Have a great week!

Chili/Vegetable soup (I have lots in the freezer that needs to be eaten.)

Southern Plate’s Deep Dish Pizza with fresh fruit

Tacos with salad

Panko Pork Chops (new) with oven baked fries and salad

Welcome to another Polar Vortex edition of Menu Plan Monday.  Yes, you read that right-another winter storm is rearing its ugly head.  In fact, I am writing this post on Sunday since I am not sure whether we will have electricity because there is a possibility of serious icing.  Ugh, spring can’t get here fast enough for me.

C & I did make the most of a pretty Saturday by heading down south to Nashville for a little fun and relaxation.  Lots of eating and shopping went on so check back on Thursday for all of the details.  The restaurant we tried was wonderful!

I get to have a root canal later this week (oh, joy) so this week’s menu is pretty simple and straight forward.  I do have a new sweet treat to try next weekend, but thankfully they are being given away as thank you gifts so I won’t be tempted to eat the whole pan. 

Hope it’s warm and dry where you are and I wish I was there too!

Chili/Spicy vegetable soup (I have both in the freezer.) with cheesy bread

Here we are on the last Monday in February and hopefully Spring is just right around the corner.  I am excited about the time change next weekend and gaining that extra hour of evening daylight.  It makes the time after work so much enjoyable to be able to get outside in the sunshine even for just a few minutes. 

Since I am trying to watch what I eat a little better, this past Saturday’s post will be the last dessert post for a little while.  I am concentrating on main dishes that are quick, easy, tasty and fairly healthy for the next few weeks.  Don’t worry though, I have too much of a sweet tooth to go too long with a treat.

On this same “healthy” line, I have a post in the works about a few apps and gadgets that I am using to keep track of my exercise and eating habits.  Most are free which is awesome and all are easy to use. 

Have a wonderful and blessed week!

Good morning, my dear readers!  We have survived another little winter “clipper” over the weekend and this week the temperatures are supposed to be in the fifties and sixties.  Yay!!!  Last Friday evening, our yard was full of robins and I took this as a sure sign that spring is on the way.  If it’s not, don’t tell me.  I like living in my little fantasy world when I can. 

Last week’s menu was a bust.  Do you ever have those weeks when you just don’t feel the best?  That was me last week.  I wasn’t sick and there really wasn’t anything bothering me, but I was tired all week so most of the cooking kind of went out the window.  Actually, it was more of in the window since I did hit the drive-thrus a couple of times.

This week should be better so much of last week’s menu has been postponed to this week.  Have a wonderful and blessed week! Oh, and Happy President’s Day!

Friday is Valentine’s Day, folks, so that means we are almost halfway done with February already.  Hopefully that also means that winter weather will soon be a thing of the past.  C & I went to Lowe’s Friday night and I made most of my garden seed purchase while I was there.  I had to fight myself not too buy too much because the packages looked so tempting.  They had all of my usual favorites and I picked up a couple of new seeds to try as well.  Can’t wait!!

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, do you have plans with your sweetheart?  C & I usually keep it low key by exchanging cards and maybe going out to eat.  That is our favorite way to celebrate.  I hope you and your sweetie have a wonderful V-day! 

I am afraid there is nothing new on the menu this week.  I just don’t seem to be in the mood to look for something.  I need sunshine!!!
