Menu, Week of 4/13

Standard

It is spring cleaning time. My kids are not happy with me, because I made a schedule with tasks for every day. I don’t know what they are complaining about, though, because they get a break when they go to their dad’s house! I have tasks every single day!

Mostly I am trying to get rid of as many things as possible. We are in no danger of being on the show Hoarders, but we do have way too many things. I am a big contributor to this problem, I know. I have so much trouble getting rid of books and yarn. I am making an effort with the books–I have a pile of books that I have never read that I have to give one more chance, and if I don’t like them, I have to get rid of them. I am trying to use up at least some of the yarn I have before buying more. These are fairly long-term projects, though.

For the rest of the house, we are getting rid of whatever we can. Clothes purged. Old toys donated. Papers recycled. It is helping, some. We need to get rid of a lot more, though. At least I can remove one decision from my days: I have a dinner plan.

Sunday: Out to dinner with a gift certificatebratwurst

Monday: Breaded pork chops with mustard sauce, fried cabbage and pancetta, buttered broccoli

Tuesday: leftovers

Wednesday: Bratwurst

Thursday: Seafood Alfredo with zucchini noodles

Friday: One skillet paleo dinner

Saturday: Doro Wat, made with chicken thighs rather than drumsticks

As always, lots more ideas can be found at orgjunkie.com

    • Sort of–I am putting together some ideas that I have read around the internet. If it turns out well, I’ll post a recipe, but it will be something low carb/high fat with cream cheese, and spiralized zucchini “noodles”…
