Last week was a hard week.
I attended an online conference for work, and while the sessions were informative... Some of them pushed me in ways I wasn't anticipating. By the end of the week, I was totally spent.
So... Despite wanting to write new blog posts last week, I didn't have the emotional bandwidth. Rather than force the issue, I let myself take a mini-break from writing. And I gave myself the whole day yesterday to decompress.
I was going to write today's menu plan post this morning, but I got pulled down too many rabbit holes. With the holiday season upon us, I knew I wanted to spend some time today focusing on the kids' play space in the basement. They hardly play down there anymore. Our 3yo loves being down there, but our 5yo doesn't. Unfortunately, our 3yo won't stay down there alone... so I decided to do some rearranging.
We moved some of the bigger toys into our 3yo's bedroom upstairs. Then I let him help me decide which of the smaller toys to keep and which to give to other families in our community. (Thank goodness for our local Buy Nothing group!) That project took a few hours to coordinate, so here we are.
Even though it's late... If you're curious to see what I've planned for dinner at our house this week, then keep reading!
A Week of Dinners: December 6 - December 12
- Sunday: Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes
I've been meaning to update the photos for the recipe for a long time. So I actually made this beef stew in my Instant Pot on Saturday so I could take photos today. One of the other things I did this morning...
- Monday: Breakfast for Dinner - French Toast with Strawberries and Sausage
Oh, yeah... Another thing I did today? I baked this bread so I could use it for tomorrow night's French toast.
- Tuesday: Ground Turkey Tacos with Homemade Taco Seasoning
- Wednesday: Leftovers
- Thursday: Italian Sausage, Bell Peppers, and Onions with White Rice
- Friday: Margherita Pizza
- Saturday: Spaghetti and Basic Baked Meatballs with Marinara Sauce
