My THM Menu for February 17-23, 2020

Hello!  Thank you for stopping in and visiting Mixing With Michelle.  I have been doing THM since May of 2013.  It has been an eventful journey, but very worth it. I have enjoyed cooking through all 3 of the THM cookbooks. I can't want for their new one to start a new adventure.

The next 2/3 months I am going to be working on eating down my pantry shelves. I have a garden each year and I use it to help lower my grocery bill.  With having cooked through the cookbooks I haven't been as frugal as I like to be. Winter is normally a smaller food budget.  I am hoping I can do a better job of less waste and eat my freezer down a bit.  I grow a garden for a good reason. 

I started a FB group, called THM New Habits Challenge for some interactive support and new habits challenge. You can also participate on IG if you are more of an IG person. 

Jen, from the Well Planned Kitchen had a great free course a bit ago and I took a few gems away from her classes. I like to meal prep, but I kinda fell out of the loop of ease that I use to do... or she suggested. It is always nice to take a refresher and learn a few things, or in my case to be reminded of things you use to do.

I found this great book, The Ultimate Ketogenic Cookbook (UKC), by Ella Sanders at my library that I found a few recipes to try. I think I have enough recipes for the MONTH of February.  Don't worry. I will break it down by the week and I will be adding some E meals with links to round out the week.  

Breakfast:
Cherry Cobbler Smoothie THM E
California Eggs Benedict p.23 THM S

Lunch: - leftovers!
Italian Artichokes Salad p.48 THM S
Curried Chicken Salad p.50 THM S

Snack:
Lime Avocado Ice Cream p.145 THM S

Unfortunately I will not be able to offer a shopping list until I find another program. My current one is no longer an option

How I did with my goal for January 2020

So this is what I am working with....

Personal
Make up and Hair Routine - I am working on my hair... I still need to find a better moisturizer.  My hair is still SO dry.

Walk/Exercise 3 times a week - Yeah, not yet. But we have a YMCA membership so I have NO excuse

Memorize Psalm 37 = 1 verse a week - I need to find a way to print the verses up on cards so I see them daily/weekly.  Ideas welcome!

Start Vlogging - after I get my goals consistent on the blog - I haven't started. I am needing to get better lighting for my kitchen.  I did find BOTH my my tripods to be able to film though!

Seasonal Recipe collection - Finish by November -Single and Family serving - I haven't done a single recipes for January. Oops

Cook and blog/vlog my cook through my menu this year (my book for the year hasn't been posted publicly yet) _ I am posting more pictures on IG, but I will strive to do better until I can get to the vlogging.


Use my business, health, garden, and menu planner - I am doing things, but nothing in my planners yet. Dumb because I NEED to.

Marriage/
Ministry/Family 
Read 4 marriage or family books - I actually DID THIS!

Write a "love" note each week - Um, yeah. Needs some work

Write one positive thing a week to read at the end of the year. - tips on actually accomplishing this!

Children/Homeschooling
Special day for each child, once a month, do 1 fun outing/activity. - I am thinking I might not be able to do this... I am not sure HOW. Most of my kids only want to play video games sadly. Any ideas to help me?

Establish game night - Finally got into a somewhat habit.

Check work once a week-school - I didn't do this yet. I am still too random. Computer problems are NOT helping.

Blogging

Weekly Grocery Hauls - Vlog - I was doing pictures until this month. This month I am striving to NOT spend much of anything other than Rubys. I have a full freezer etc. Time to use it up

Try a 1 new recipe a week or a month and vlog/blog about it -  do new recipes all the time. Do I remember to vlog... nope... I mean even blog about it would be great Nope... UGH

Monthly or weekly Goals/plans! - DONE!
