weekly menu:: week 50

trying to eat healthy during this time
what?!  week 50?! how can that be?
the year will be over before we know it.

and as christmas approaches we are keeping super busy around here.
not just with christmas gatherings and to do's but with lots of birthdays and celebrations.

so this week i promised myself that i would keep things simple in terms of dinner. i want some time to relax and enjoy.

making this week::
monday: chicken and vegetable soup - perfect for this cold and rainy day
tuesday: turkey burgers and fries - never made that last week
wednesday: bbq salmon, mashed potatoes and green beans
thursday: mole and tamales - celebrating my parents' birthdays
friday: pizza
saturday: eat out
sunday:  family christmas celebration

baking this week::
i missed the annual cookie bake this year.  but the kids went and brought back some goodies to share with me.  i'm trying not to overdue it with the sweets but they are tasty.  i would love to try to make some cookies too.  i especially love this recipe for raspberry linzer windowpane cookies.  hopefully i can find the time to make them this week.

i hope you are all staying dry.
i'm off to the grocery store.  wish me luck.
