Our Menu (Week of July 22, 2012)

Summer fruit love

Why hello there!  I took a couple of weeks off from menu plans due to vacation (yay!) and, uh, laziness.  But I missed having a menu plan last week.  Because when you’re feeling lazy?  That’s when you could really use the plan!  (I’m shouting at myself.)  It just makes meal times easy, breezy, beautiful Cover Girl!

Sorry. Continue reading

My Gotta Tries: What Should Be On Our Menu

Happy 4th of July!  Hope you’re relaxing and beating the heat!

I don’t have a menu plan this week.  What?  I know, how odd.  But I’m headed to London to train for the Olympics.  Yes, I’ll be in the 2012 Summer Olympics.  And One Moment in Time better be blasting when I win the gold for my uneven bars routine.

I’m not headed to the Olympics.  But that’d be a great excuse for not accomplishing a lot of things lately (blogging, deep cleaning the house, organizing the garage, etc.).  Instead, I sat on my buns and watched too much of the Olympic trials.  I kind of feel more athletic and lean just from watching all that sportiness.

My future Olympian.

Since I’m not sharing a menu this week, here’s a plethora (I just wanted to say pleeeeh-thor-aaaaa: name that movie!) of recipes I plan to make this summer.  These caught my hungry eye and I’ll test them out all summer long.

I’ll eat and watch the Olympics.  Totally a sport.

I’ve made a lot of smoothies in my time and even some with oatmeal, but this one from Fudge Banana Swirl just sounds extra yummy.  Continue reading

Our Menu (Week of June 24, 2012)

Poor, poor, neglected blog.  Last week I had too good a time enjoying summer and didn’t give this little blog the love and attention it deserves.  But this week I’ll be back in the saddle and hope you’ll stick around to see what I have up my blogging sleeve. :)

Since Munchie really liked learning about France we’ve decided to continue exploring that lovely country for our “learning about our world” activities (as noted in our 102 Things To Do This Summer List).  So I’ll also keep France a part of our menu plan just as it was last week.  :)  I’ll also be sharing a few recipes from this menu plan.  Are you interested?


Here’s what we’re having this week.  Bon Appetit!


  • Berry crepes, melon, o.j.
  • Pain au chocolat, melon & berries, French hot chocolate
  • Cereal, banana, juice Continue reading

Our Menu (Week of June 17, 2012)

Where I’ll be dining this week.  Ahahahahahaaaaaaaa!……….sob.

Hi all!  I forgot to brainstorm this week’s menu.  But I’ve been thinking about some delicious looking desserts I saw online this past week.  Which I must ignore.  Ignore.

This week we’re doing a bit of “learning about our world” as noted in our 102 Things To Do This Summer List so I’m incorporating a bit of France into the plan.  :)  If you know me, it’s no surprise that I chose France for our 1st “trip”.  I love America, but I have a “thing” for France.  My choices or outcomes might not be terribly authentic, but I’m giving it a shot.  Munchie is excited and asked if we will go to Africa and North Carolina (??? no idea where those came from).

So here we go…planning as I type.  Here’s what we’re having this week:


  • Blueberry coffee cake, strawberries, juice x 2
  • Stuffed breakfast biscuits, blueberries, pineapple juice
  • Soft-boiled eggs, toast strips, ham slices, o.j./tea Continue reading
