Happy Homemaker Monday-A Look At My Week's Plans

Welcome to my Happy Homemaker Monday post
Weekly joining Sandra at Family Corner

 The Weather
 Sun today is promised.  38' in the morning but climbing to 59'.
Actually beautiful weather.  Maybe a little rain on Tuesday but otherwise it's gonna be nice this week!

Right Now I  Am
Wishing it was spring!  Can't wait to get outside and dig in the dirt. 
And glad the weather is pretty and I have a short work week. 
I only work Tues, Thurs and Friday. Yea!

In the kitchen
A few plans . . . January is a great time to re-organize your cabinets or pantry.  
Check the dates on your baking soda, baking powder and other things you may not use often.  If you didn't already do it during holiday baking.  
Looking ahead... Check the dates in October for the upcoming holidays.
I'll be cleaning the fridge good this week and organizing my teeny tiny pantry space.

Monday- Kielbasa (thawed too much last week), 
Kielbasa Fajita's, Mexican Rice, Cup Chicken Tortilla Soup
Tuesday- Meatloaf, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes
Wednesday- Pasta Alfredo or Red...hmmm

Mac/Cheese Kid Friendly
Friday- Time to grill Steak, Baker, Salad, Bread

In the garden 
Nothing new but I have a few plans.  I am going to plant some Coleus seeds to put in the front of  the house and on the edge of the veggie garden with the mums and butterfly bush I planted.
Have you ever planted Coleus?
