The new normal has been rather elusive this year. Survival is the name of my game these days. And, I think I’m okay with it. Food and clean underwear – if we’ve got those, we’re okay.

But, I know from experience that if I don’t have a plan for food, we’ll be eating way too much take-out which is expensive, fattening, and not all that tasty.

We don’t always follow the plan I make each week. In fact, lots of meals got shifted last week. But, having a plan means I have some sort of direction to follow come 4 pm. This week we have opportunity to visit with family and enjoy a few days off from work and school. And, we are rejoicing in Jesus and his coming. Great cause for celebration. And at our house that means great food.

  1. Mom to Five says

    Hi there. Would you be willing to explain to me how I create a link to recipes? I also have a blog on blogger.com but I am very computer illiterate:)
    Your meals sound healthy and delicious!!!
    Thank you,

  2. Your plan looks great. I’m surprised at how many people opt for lasagna on Christmas day… what a fun and comforting tradition! Enjoy, and thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
