Life has been rather hectic lately. I feel like I’m being pulled in 12 different directions, and unfortunately, none of them are the ones I’m interested in being pulled towards. I’m working towards planning a more toned-down week that focuses on things I am interested in: cooking, baking, keeping my house organized, participating in family activities, editing photos and working a bit less. We’ll see how well I do at achieving an appropriate work-life balance. If such a thing exists.
To start the week off, I’ll be heading to a string of doctor’s appointments early tomorrow morning. Hopefully everything checks out, both routine and non, and then I’ll have to decide to give the kids the flu vaccines or not. To flu or not to flu? To swine or not to swine? I still have 9 hours to make a decision.
Monday – Orecchiette pasta with chicken, caramelized onions and blue cheese, spring mix salads, bloomin’ bread
Tuesday – Pit beef on hard rolls with horseradish, grilled avocado pesto tomato salad
Wednesday – Smoked BBQ ribs, perfect mashed potatoes, baked acorn squash and maybe some jalapeño cornbread to make Ole happy
Thursday – Bacon-wrapped salmon, wilted spinach salad
Friday – Caprese grilled pizzas and maple vinaigrette salads
