Meal Menu Planning

I took about 30 minutes this Saturday afternoon to plan all the dinner menus for next week.  Wow! What a relief.  I don't know why I haven't done this in awhile.  Instead, I've been planning about a day ahead or sometimes (eek!) the same day.

I used a couple of cookbooks I picked up at the library this morning, allrecipes.com and my iCalendar (which syncs to my iPhone).  The menus use ingredients I know I already have in my pantry and freezer, so no more grocery shopping this week except for perishables.

I hope to keep doing this on a regular basis.  Sure makes life a lot easier and I avoid that 4:30-5:00 p.m. what's-for-dinner-tonight panic!

P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #8

Here is my photo for Week #8 of Sweet Shot Tuesday.  It's an early spring here in Florida but quite windy. The weather has been changing from hot to cold every few days.  I love the carpet of fallen leaves shown below in the afternoon sunlight but instead of brown, they are a lovely pink carpet--perfect for a princess.  :)

P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday Week 7

I found this dead dragonfly on our porch last week and was throwing it out when I looked a little closer.  Normally you can't get this close to one while their wings are buzzing so quickly.  I was amazing how intricate the design on its wings were...

...like fine lace...


I was also surprised when I turned it over, it looked like someone who had been laid to rest in a coffin with its little "hands" folded so delicately across the middle.

God certainly has such detail in His creation.


Isa 41:20 That they may see and recognize, 
And consider and gain insight as well, 
That the hand of the LORD has done this, 
And the Holy One of Israel has created it.

P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #6

I love the way water reflects light. We've had some absolutely gorgeous sunny days here lately in Florida.  I was working on my porch (I work from home) and couldn't resist taking this photo of the pool in the bright sunlight.  Too cold to swim just now, but sure is nice to look at.   This is my photo for Week #6 in the P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday project.
