Time is Flying by and the Weekly Menu

I can't believe that it is already the end of January.  Holy cow.  I swear the older I get the faster time flies.

Tonight, we are going to the home show. We hope to get some ideas for renovating the addition on the back of the house.

This week is pretty quiet.  We are watching Melody tomorrow while Mama and Charlie go out on a date night. John and Kirsten will be joining us for dinner after Mass.

Wednesday, I have Food Pantry as there are 5 Wednesdays this month, after which we will take Melody home and then take dinner to Aunt Irene's so I can help her shower.  Thursday is choir and then the weekend is upon us once again.

I am sharing the Weekly Menu. It's actually a pretty quiet blogging week too.  Tomorrow we are celebrating Chocolate Cake Day and I have an easy peasy mug cake that Mel and I made to share with you.

I have a recipe redo to share with you on Sunday and some delicious muffins on Monday.

 I will be sharing an easy recipe for Clafoutis on Tuesday.  Not much work but I have been trying to cut down on my desserts and didn't  like the idea of having a whole Clafoutis sitting on the counter calling my name so I am making it for tomorrow since we will have company to help us eat it.

  1. Do you have a link for when you made Vera Cruz en Papillote? We like fish and I'd love the recipe!

    1. Hi Tina, I will be making that for our dinner next Friday and I will be posting the recipe for our Fish Friday Foodies group on 2/16. You can find lots of fish recipes on our Pinterest Board at and if you are a blogger and would like to join our group we would love to have you. Just leave your blog url and I will send you an invitation.
