Welcome to another week of menu planning at Wonder Woman I’m Not. Thank you for stopping by! It’s Thanksgiving week which is one of my favorite weeks in the world. I’m technically on vacation this week (technically because I am doing some work from home) and I have high hopes as to all the things I am planning on accomplishing.
Regular readers will notice that it’s been a couple of months since my last post. Unfortunately, things have gotten a bit chaotic at work due to some unfortunate news and my work days have been long. Like 15 hours a day long. As my work days were beginning to shorten, I came down with a terrible cold (surprise!) and my recuperation has taken some time.
One thing that I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older is that when life hits those icy patches where you are in an uncontrolled spin, you have to learn to let go of things. Menu planning, housework and blogging were the things I needed to let go of.
Fortunately, my husband totally rocks in the housework department. He has kept the house clean and both of us in clean clothes. When I whined about how useless I was, he told me not to worry that he didn’t mind carrying the housework burden when I was dealing with my work stuff. He’s a keeper!
Another fortunate thing is that restaurant don’t mind selling us food! We’ve done a lot of take-out and cereal in our house the last couple of months. It’s easier to share the aftermath versus letting you know upfront my week consisted of not cooking 🙂
Now that things have calmed down and I’ve taken some time to rest up, I’m ready to start cooking again and making some progress on some projects around the house. As I mentioned, I’m on vacation this week. I’m hoping to get our Christmas decorations up (first time ever I didn’t get our porch decorated for fall) and do some organizing around the house.
Turkey Dinner – the kids came over last night for dinner. The four of us celebrated Thanksgiving in a non-rushed, non-chaotic way.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
Dinner with extended family on Thursday. I’ll be bringing the Cranberry Relish and wine.
That’s it for us, what are you serving? I hope all of you have a fabulous Thanksgiving. Take time to stop and enjoy some time with the people you love and care about.
