Weekly Menu July 17th - 21st, 2016


After sharing a menu post with you a few weeks ago, I truly intended to start making it a weekly thing again but it seems as though the second it hits 4:30 on Friday and my weekend begins, the hands of the clock start spinning at an impossible rate and by the time I blink, it's 7:30 pm on a Sunday.

I don't know why, but every July I feel as though I have a million and a half things that need to be done right away. It didn't help spending a week on vacation, getting me behind in work and losing (not in a bad way) two weekends that I usually spend cooking and baking. My brain is still trying to catch up, wondering how it's possible that the 4th of July, what I consider the middle of the summer has already passed us by.

It also seems to be an annual tradition in July that I am hit with the spring cleaning bug (a few months too late obviously). Something about this time of the year makes me want to take multiple days off work and go through every single item in the apartment removing absolutely everything that isn't of use or value. I thought it would be a good time to start going through the Kon Mari process again.
(Check out The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up if you aren't familiar.)

We moved my computer into the spare bedroom because it's impossible for two people to share a regular sized desk and I found myself never wanting to sit at the computer, to blog or write or even clean out emails. Which prompted me going through a file cabinet where I had shoved office supplies, bills and old cards. One extremely full trash bag later, I realized the whole apartment was going to get Kon Mari'd. (I've finally decided to part with 90% of my books, saving only 8 cookbooks, my Harry Potter collection and approximately 12 other books that I can't bring myself to part with. 60 are in a box to go to the library.)

In other things keeping me away from my usual tasks of cooking, baking, blogging and writing, work has been insanely busy. First, there's just the simple catch up of being out of the office for a week, followed by missing two days spent in the warehouse doing quarterly inventory, added on top of two of the companies needing significantly more of my time than they ever have before. A clone of myself would be wonderful.

Now that I've caught you up on the crazy that is currently my life, I suppose I should share the menu with you since that's the reason you all clicked on this post to begin with, eh?

Sunday: kielbasa, potatoes, peppers and onions 

Monday: teriyaki chicken tacos 

Tuesday: smoked gouda pimiento burgers with fries and salad 

Wednesday: twice baked potatoes with fajita chicken and Mexican corn 

Thursday: pulled pork with Veracha BBQ sauce, baked beans and coleslaw 

I'm trying something new for breakfast this week, having two different things to choose from instead of one meal for the entire week. 

Breakfast: cinnamon roll smoothie  / hard boiled egg and sausage patty
Lunch: honey lemon ginger chicken with sesame ginger spaghetti squash and cucumber carrot salad 

Desserts and Misc:
Berry Fruit Trifle
Bacon and Roasted Corn Guacamole
Peach Crumb Cake 
Zucchini Cheddar Chive Bread

As you can see, there's going to be quite a bit of time spent in the kitchen to get all of this prepared. Wish me luck it all gets done!
