Weekly Menu Plan #58 Re-Entry

Why, hello there!  Did you have a nice holiday season?  I really wasn't planning on dropping off the internet for two weeks, but believe it or not, this is my first time touching a computer since mid December.  When I first started writing in this space, I made a pact with myself that when push comes to shove, this blog would be what is sacrificed during a very full season before I took more time away from family.  I had plans to write ahead of time and schedule posts to be published during the holidays but time ran out for that, too.  Looking back on these last two weeks, I am so very thankful for that pact, and the treasures of memories I have tucked away in my heart forever that were made during this time.

These past two weeks have also helped me realize how much I love to menu plan.  We managed to live without them, but I was ever so thankful for the stash of fourteen meals I had frozen and we relied on them while we were home.  It works for me to sit down and focus on what to make for each meal of the week all at once and never have to think about them again.  Never having to face the it's five o'clock and I have no clue what I'm going to make for dinner with what I have in the fridge fiasco brings such peace.  So without further ado, let's get to this week's plan, shall we?  Oh, and happy new year!  There's so much to share about what's to come here on our homestead, but that is for another time.

  1. What do you use for bread for your GF sandwiches?? :) I've been kind of at a loss for lunches now that we have gone totally GF and no longer have the sourdough :(

  2. Right now I'm compromising a bit on the sandwich bread and I bought GF Maninis Bread. It was on sale through Azure.

  3. Thanks :) It's a tough one for SURE!! Always good to hear what others are doing :)


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
