Menu Plan Monday December 31

This is the week that we ring in a new year! I always feel super organized and ramped up to start a new exercise plan and diet.  My house is super clean and running on a schedule....for about a week.  Then I slowly get back into my typical groove. 

I think that this year my resolutions will be a little less optimistic than in years past.  No point setting my self up for failure!  I am certainly not going to make any resolutions about not eating certain foods.  That is a sure fire way to gorge on whatever I am trying to cut out.

All normal food here.  Here is the first plan of the new year!

Happy Weekend Peeps!

We have become a bunch of lazy slobs around here.  The littles are sleeping until 8:00, playing games in their PJ's until lunch and then, maybe, getting dressed.  It has been so much fun!  I dread the lunch box packing, homework, waking up early school rut that will begin again soon enough.

Anyway, they have been playing so nicely, I have had some extra time on Pinterest.  Here are my top 5 favorites for this week.

Korean Beef

Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Oven Chicken Fajitas

Welcome home Friday!

This is our first full day of Christmas vacation.  String Beane got out of school at noon yesterday.  Everyone was up and at 'em at 6:30 this morning!  Typical. 

All the little Beanes are so excited about Christmas.  Butter Beane and String Beane keep asking how many more days and Jelly Beane goes around the house looking for our Elf.  I am getting excited too!  I think this will be the year that Christmas morning will be so fun. 

Here are my top 5 favorites for this week.

Any way, here are my top 5 picks for this week.  I hope you have found some good things too.

Hello Fridizzle!  I am so glad to see you! 

We are in full swing Christmas mode here at the Beane house.  Our Elf on the shelf showed up this morning.  All 3 little Beanes were up at 6:15 trying to find her.  Note to self:  Next year do not tell them that the elf will be somewhere in the house when they wake up.  Lesson learned.

Here are some of my favorites from around the web this week.  What are your favorites?

Almond Joy Cookies

Maple Bacon Biscuits

Cinnamon Rolls with Browned Butter Icing

Low Fat Baked General Tso Chicken
