Weekly Menu

I'm trying to get myself back in the habit of planning my meals for the week.  We are heading into Girl Scout Cookie Season and I definately need to be on top of things or we might not be eating (LOL) We get our cookies on Tuesday of this week. I have to head over to our leader's house right after Issac's therapy and help unload.  Next weekend we have a 3 booths, so I'm trying to plan my meals from today through next Sunday at least.  Here is what I have planned:

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and frozen veggies
Hot Dogs, Tator Tots and frozen veggies
Beef Stroganoff Casserole with either frozen veggies or salad.  The recipe I'm using is from
Squash & Lentil Stew with salad.  This recip is also from
Baked chicken & potatoes with veggies
Spaghetti and either frozen veggies or salad
Chef John's Turkey Sloppy Joes, Fries and veggies.  I got this recipe off
**I wanted to stretch mine a little further than the beef I used that night, so I added cooked lentils to it and nobody noticed:)

I just realized I'm short one meal here (LOL) My brain isn't coming up with anything else at this point. More than likely I'll make homeade soup one day. Maybe on the weekend because after standing outside Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon/evening homeade soup would feel great!


  1. Way to be on the ball and plan your week instead of letting your week "plan you out."

  2. Thanks Trina, I'm trying :) Miss you guys!

Review: Forbrain

Issac is 10 years old and has struggled most of his life with speech delays.  He's been though to have auditory processing  as well as we've had reading difficulties. The older he's gotten we've seen more and more memory issues as well as him having trouble paying attention.  We've done speech and occupational therapies off and on for most of his life.  I recently saw Forbrain by Sound for Life LTD and was really interested in this for Issac. The website states that Forbrain's dynamic filter trains the brain to be more attentive improving not only attention but auditory processing and sensory integration.  Forbrain helps people to improve speech fluency, pronunciation, sound discrimination and rhythm, for clearer and more effective communication.Forbrain helps people to improve short term memory, which impacts such skills as reading, writing and even chatting.  These are all things that I thought were right inline with Issac.  Depending on the age of the person…

Review: CTCMath

When your a homeschooling parent the topic of which curriculum to use comes up quite often. The subject that I've heard discussed the most is math.  One of the names I've heard over and over again is CTCMath.  We were given a Single Membership and they are offering you the chance to try it for free!  CTCMath is wonderful for children that don't fit 100% into a specific grade level.  When you use the program you have access to ALL levels and not just the grade that your child is in.  Issac is in 5th grade and for several years he was actually ahead in math. It was one of the subjects that he really enjoyed. He excelled in it for several years until multiplication and division came into play.  He struggled, so I worked him around those problems while we tried to memorize our facts.  This went on longer than I had hoped and eventually we started getting behind.  Last year we tried a few things that were new to us and they seemed to help him get most of the multiplication fac…

Busy Hands Make a Sleepy Mama!

I have been having trouble sleeping well this week and it's been so very frustrating. What I really struggle to understand is how when I'm restless the nightmares seem to appear. That then makes my sleep worse and it's a vicious cycle! This morning I decided that we needed some muffins to snack on this week and I had varied frozen fruit in the freezer that I wanted to use up. We will be moving soon and while I don't want my extra freezer empty there are some things that could be used up to make the packing go much smoother :) I found a bag of craisins in the freezer and decided to use those for muffins. For the life of me I have NO idea why I have a LARGE bag of craisins in the freezer (LOL) I hit Pinterest looking for some recipes and found one that looked good.  Found this recipe for Cranberry Blueberry Muffins that looked good, so we went with it. I decided to do 2 batches with just the craisins, did 2 batches with just the blueberries and then used the same recipe …
