Happy Monday, everyone! :)
How's your week starting? Are you ready for the New Year?
It's kind of amazing how quickly this year flew by. Not that I'm going to miss it... In fact, I've never wanted a new year to come sooner. For many reasons... One of them is that as much as I love white and playing in the snow with kiddos, I'm getting more and more ready for some vibrant spring colors. Kind of like these:
Gorgeous, right? Are you getting tired of winter already too or are you enjoying every minute of it instead?
This is also the last time this year to keep track of our food waste. Unfortunately, I'm not ending it with a nice big zero. Still, with all the Christmas celebrations and parties - read, lots of leftovers - we only threw away two pieces of pita that got moldy. I'd say, not bad at all!
The New Year's Day is by far the biggest holiday of the year in my country. But we decided to meet it quietly. I'm not cooking anything big but we will enjoy time around our Christmas tree for one more day. Yes, my tree is still up, as it is every year during this time :)
And this is what our menu looks like so far. As usual, it's always subject to change. Our weekend is not planned because we might be meeting with my sister's family for a belated Christmas dinner. Last week they were all sick with flu, so we stayed away:
Mon. - busy day casserole (my day was crazy busy today:), steamed broccoli
Tues.- stuffed shells, baked cauliflower
Wed.- cutlets, leftover rice from Monday, mixed veggies
Thurs.- hot dogs, fries, salad
Fr- vegetable soup or leftovers
Are you making anything special for the New Year?
