I wanted to start this post off with pictures of Rita’s Burpee Mile, and how it all went, but I sadly left my camera at the gym.  Can you believe it!?!  I’m not happy with myself, because there are some great pictures, and Rita did an amazing job.  I’ll have my camera back and a write-up of the Mile for you on Tuesday!

This morning:  I’m making the World’s Best Blueberry Muffins, and they are the BEST EVER!!  I already have all the ingredients, and the blueberries were on sale, so I figured they would be a nice treat this weekend.

On to this weeks menu.  Sadly my husband was affected by the recent government sequestration that hit a lot of government workers, and he has furlough time now.  In the interest of saving money, my goal is to use the food in our house and only have to shop for produce this week.  We have a lot of meat in our freezer, so I know this is doable.

Monday:  Chicken Enchiladas with Spanish rice and corn.  This is my own enchilada recipe, and I’ll do my best to get some pictures and type up the recipe for you this week.

Tuesday:  Spaghetti Squash Noodles with Thai Peanut Sauce from Family Fresh Cooking is my new “pin” recipe to try this week and it has me intrigued. The recipe looks delish, and I’m always looking for a healthier or cleaner version to my favorite Thai meals.  I think I will also add some shredded baked chicken breasts for more protein.

Thursday:  Caprese Pasta from Aris Menu.  This just screams yummy!

Friday: Breakfast for dinner!!  Of course we will have some fruit with our pancakes or waffles Smile

Saturday: Italian Wedding Soup…I make my own using ground turkey breast for the mini meatballs.

Sunday: We are having company over, so I’m thinking my Crock Pot Pulled Pork or grilling hamburgers and hot dogs.

What is on your menu this week?  Are you trying anything new?

Remember that virtual Bacon 5K Race I shared last Saturday?  Well part of the “bacon challenge” is to eat bacon after or during your run, jog, or walk.  Everyone is posting different bacon recipes on the Facebook page for the race, and this maple bacon cupcake recipe is my choice!

Since I was traveling and leaving the hubby at home and in charge of everything, I put together a “home management” binder for him in case of an emergency.  Here are the sites with free printouts that I used to put together my own binder.  Just click on the picture to go to the blogs they came from.

IHeart Organizing no longer has her pintables for free.  Instead I used her examples from her etsy shop to create my own pintables, since I didn’t need everything she had and wanted to add some categories of my own to spreadsheets.
