A Winter Week of Plans


Here we are in the middle of January, 2009, already! This promises to be a memorable week with the inauguration going on and our weather forecast includes SNOW tonight and tomorrow which always means excitement in my neck of the woods!

How are you doing with your New Year's Goals?

I'm off work today and it will be wonderful to get another head start on the week by having a Monday off. I'm really pleased with my progress on my 2009 To Do List and today I hope to be able to mark off another item as completed.

This week's plans:

Today while off work:

1. Clean. Finish cleaning and decluttering the kitchen cabinets. I did the worst of it Saturday. I still need to pull out all the pots and pans and try to create some order there. I need to wipe down the fronts of all the cabinet doors and the knobs.

2. Cook. My hubby comes home for lunch and he isn't lucky enough to be off work today like me. So, I want to have a nice meal ready for him instead of those less than "good" meals he sometimes has for lunch on work days.

I plan to cook two good meals today, which can be eaten today and tomorrow when we are all back at work. (Maybe, maybe not since we have snow in the forecast!)

3. Mama. I plan to go over to Mama's to do a few housekeeping chores and check on her. I think she would like to have her flannel sheets put on the bed. Why haven't I thought of that sooner since she is so cold natured!

4. Sewing. I am going to work on my 2009 Sewing To Do List, even if its in bits and pieces of my time.

Menu for this week:

Sunday: Mexican chicken casserole, sweet potato clouds, broccoli and cheese, biscuits (with jelly), chocolate cake. I plan to post more on this "Sunday Dinner" tomorrow for Kitchen Tip Tuesday.

Monday: Pan fried pork chops, rice with gravy, green beans, crescent rolls

Tuesday: Crock pot roast, potatoes, sweet peas

Wednesday: Vegetable Soup made with ground beef.

Thursday: BBQ chicken, corn, baked beans

Friday: pizza or "planned overs".

Saturday: Chili, cornbread

Have a wonderful Monday!

Debbie, I enjoy your blog. I thought I'd delurk today and say hello.

Your menu sounds delicious btw. Perfect for the snowy weather they are predicting for the carolinas.

Enjoy your day off.

Debbie, you are so efficient. You make me tired when you detail all that you accomplish!! The organization of your closets and cabinets is inspiring, however.

Can you share the recipe for the Mexican Chicken? It sounds good for cold weather.

Wish you could be off work tomorrow to watch the inauguration.
It is a momentous occasion.

I like your new header, Debbie.

You are doing so well with your 2009 To Do List. Keep up the good work.

Can I come to your house to eat this week....your menu sounds delicious. I'll do the dishes!

We're suppose to get snow tonight too. This will be the first snow this winter.

Keep up the good work on your To Do List and enjoy your days off...can, you squeeze in a few hours for yourself?
