Oh, the eating. I'm sure over the holidays I have consumed a whole tray of Big Mama's toffee all on my own. All the different and varied foods that you eat at day after holiday day that you never eat at any other time starts to wear at small part of me. Don't get me wrong, I love every bit of holiday food and treats as is evidenced by my annual tightening of the pants, but by this time, I am starting to crave the regular, everyday meals. And for us the Christmas food was only the beginning. It doesn't even mention the popcorn at this movie that we went to on Saturday for my birthday. We so rarely, ever go to the theatre, that when we do hubby just has to have the big bucket of popcorn to share and the pop to go with it! It's all part of the theatre experience, right? And then, the family took me on Sunday to Tony Roma's. Rib heaven. I had the St. Louis Sampler. And a tip if you ever go there? Their Mud Pie is to die for. Make sure you leave some room. Four of us actually shared one slice. It was that huge!
But now I'm staring the eliptical in the face. The dreaded January urge to get on the exercise machines. Ugh.
So in honor of getting back to routine, Laura, here is my menu plan for this week:
Monday: Slow cooked Maple garlic pork tenderloin, rice, steamed cauliflower
Tuesday: Turkey soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
Wednesday: Barb's Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake, bean medley
Thursday: Shepard's Pie, steamed carrots
Friday: Scrounge Day
Saturday: oven fried chicken drums, baked potatoe, broccoli
Sunday: BBQ Beef, buns, salad, baked beans
