Weekly Preview

would be a big fibber if I said I accomplished everything on my weekly to-do list last week, but I am proud to say that I stuck with my weekly menu to the very letter (no desperation-mode runs to Little Caesar’s!) and I managed to wrap up two sewing projects that had been ongoing for far too long than I care to admit. So that is something! I really did find it motivating to have my list to refer back to, so I think I’m going to continue doing this on a weekly basis.

Here’s my plan for this week…


Monday – Chicken Tarragon with Polenta and Wine-Braised Green Beans
Tuesday -Tuna Cakes (don’t knock ‘em till you try ‘em ;) with Caprese Salad
Wednesday – Fish Picatta with Spaghetti
Thursday – Ginger Peach Gumbo (a recipe from, a site I recently discovered that is a terrific wealth of information pertaining to local foods and growers!)
Friday – Baked Caramelized Onion Mac & Cheese with Salad
Saturday – Green Chile Cheeseburgers with Sweet Potato Fries
Sunday – Ham, Egg and Hashbrown Bake; Sandwiches and Cantaloupe


  • Clean out kids’ clothes (this is one thing that didn’t happen last week that really must this week)
  • Finish kids’ bathroom decor
  • Take inventory of my fall decorations
  • Finish two projects for the blog that I currently have in progress
I’m not going to lie…Y’all are probably going to see a lot of repeat appearances by certain tasks on here as the weeks progress. Somehow sewing is immensely more fun than things like packing away clothes to put in storage. ;)
Do y’all take time each week to gather your thoughts and make a game plan?
Let’s support each other in our efforts!

    I didn’t keep a todo list when I was a Stay at Home Mom, but since I have gone to work I find I have to. If I don’t I won’t get anything done at home. Plus it feels really good to cross off things I have completed.

    I do need to start a weekly meal list though. We eat our way too often just because we don’t have a plan. Maybe I will start one soon.

    I usually make a weekly menu plan, but after seeing your post last week I have started adding a project list as well. It’s nice to have a plan.

    Tuna cakes are amazing! Love ‘em!

    Good luck with the to-do list!

    I would love to see your mac and cheese recipe!
    I also have a weekly menu. It saves tons of money on groceries, we are not wasting nearly as much.
