Menu Plan Monday 4/3/17 and A Teeny Tiny Chore List

Blackberry Greek Yogurt Goodness
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup fresh or frozen fruit (my choice is blackberries this year)
local honey
1 square of dark chocolate broken in to bite size morsels (or dark chocolate chips)

We are well into Spring here in Florida.  We have had many more days that temperatures hovered closer to 90 than 80 in the past seven days....I'm thinking we might actually be closer to Summer than not.  So sad.  At least our nights are still cooling down and life is pleasant on the back porch, well, after about 6 in the evening.

I have just a few outside tasks I want to accomplish before the weather gets too hot.

  1. Have a garage sale
  2. Re-mulch the front flowerbeds
  3. Plant new flowers in front
  4. Burn the brush from winter {we have had crazy strong winds and no rain}
  5. Clean out the garage
  6. Re-arrange the back porch
Goals are good, right?


This is what we ate last week:
A squeeze of lime made this a tasty concoction.

Pulled Chicken Barbecue Sandwiches
Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon and Onions

Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Roasted Green Beans


And this is what is on our plan this week:





Ramen Bowls 
{with leftover pork tenderloin}
or
Thai Curry Fried Rice


Bacon and Spinach Quiche

 Spinach Salad with Chicken and Strawberries

Free Style Chicken Salad


Korean Beef/Chicken
and

Roasted Vegetables

Some riff on Roasted Garlic Chicken Flatbread

I'm not making anything that is over the top or by any definition of the word, extravagant, this week. Of course, portion control is still my utmost goal, you know, for swimsuit season.  My dessert plan is yogurt with fresh fruit, a sprinkling of dark chocolate chips, and a drizzle of local honey. 

Moderation...moderation is my mantra.

Have a great week and a Happy Monday!
