Menu Plan and Goals

We took a day trip Saturday to spend time with my husband’s parents and brother, sister-in-law, and nephew. Most of the day was spend at a science & discovery center (our daughter still wasn’t ready to leave after hours there) followed by an hour at a park and dinner.

This is what we all felt like by the time the day was over:

Being gone on a Saturday certainly cuts into the ability to accomplish projects, but we tackled as much on Sunday as possible and I’m very much looking forward to spending next weekend at home!

Menu Plan and Goals from Deanna Michaels @ From this Kitchen Table


  • Spicy Indian Chicken Sandwiches (recipe coming)
  • Bean and Rice Burritos
  • Leftovers
  •  Quinoa crust pizza (forgot to soak the quinoa, so we didn’t have it last week)
  • Out of town


  • Butter Chicken and naan (recipes coming – one of our favorites!)
  • Picnic
  • Salads (My husband and me)
  • Leftovers (for my daughter)



  • Keep plugging away in  Mansfield Park and start another book from this list.
  • Price supplies for room sprays
  • Contact the Herb Festival
  • 3 Scripture cards
  • Write 4 posts
  • Exercise. Plan to at least do the video from the 28 days of Pilates every day. Started last week and each day is only 5-9 minutes, so it’s hard to come up with an excuse not to get it done.

What’s on your menu this week? What are your goals?

    I love that you’re reading through Jane Austen! One summer I had more lunch break than I needed and spent the time in a park reading Jane Austen underneath a tree.

    I have my first ever batch of naan rising in my kitchen right now! I wanted to have it for lunch, but I was too slow this morning.

      It’s taking my a while to plug through Mansfield Park. My book is way overdue. I might have to just buy it. Oh, reading Austen under a tree sounds like a great way to spend a lunch break.
