Menu Monday and Plans For Holiday Neighbor Gifts

 


Hello and Welcome to my almost weekly Monday feature. 

Sometimes I get too busy to write a post!  

Does that happen to you?  



Here are my Menu plans.  And following my plans I am sharing what I am hoping to make for my wonderful neighbors for Thanksgiving and Christmas.


Saturday 

Oven Braised Pot Roast  and fixings.  In the oven for 4 hours I home it is as good as a Chuck Roast!

Sunday 

Doritos Taco Salad 

Monday 

Rotel Sausage Quiche, Salad and Fruit

Tuesday 

Poor Man's  Steak aka Ground Beef,  Asparagus, Mashed Potatoes  and Onion  Gravy 

Wednesday  

Spaghetti, Salad and Bread 

Thursday  

Chili Rellenos, Spanish  Rice and Beans

Friday 

Chicken looking for  a recipe. Maybe with Spinach and Mushrooms 

Here's what I am hoping to make my neighbors.   I found all these on Pinterest. 





And for Christmas . . . 


Aren't these adorable?  I never would have guessed they are Strawberries. How clever!  

Are you thinking about planning for the  holidays? 

Today I am Linking at The Fabulous Party here on my blog.  I would love for you to link your posts too!  

And at all the regular parties.  My list is below the post 

Have a Sparkly Week! 




Welcome To My Craft Table

 


Joining my Author friend Jocie McKade and sharing  my crafting. 

First  I am sharing  2 tags I received  in a SWAP.  I will share the tags I made and sent below. 

The theme/prompt was make a big tag I think 6" I don't  remember.  It had to be Brown. 
And also  make a layered tag in Brown 



This is the layered tag I made.  I absolutely  adore how it turned out. 
You can see a bit of my messy table.  I am working in Brown.  What is the Yellow  Highlighter and Blue Flower hanging around for? 
Another  shot did I say I adore these.  I have had the Camo paper  awhile. Got it in a sale bundle at Hobby Lobby.  I had only used it for samples of ideas I see on YouTube.   It is perfect  for this application!


The next week we had to make Yellow ephemera.   I used a map from an old atlas.  That I actually  got a few years ago.  It had been  made into an envelope and mailed to me.  
Everyone loved the Rooster  and the #1.  I added the ribbon to look like a Fair Ribbon. 
The bottom  piece was Yellow stripe scrapbook  paper I had played  around splatter painting Blueberry dye I made. 
And Orange  week.  The bottom is a torn paperbag I dyed with an Avocado. We were to make a pocket and put something  Orange in. 
I made the Orange  Raffle Ticket.  


And so all the above pieces of Ephemera are the reason  my table is such a mess. 

Now I need to go clean it up to be ready  for a new week of crafting.

Simple Sunday

 


Happy Homemaker in Texas

 Joining Sandra for the  party



The weather 

I was wondering about Hurricane season.  It seems to be pretty much over.  The season is April to November but the peak is May to October.  It is usually upper 70 in the morning and 80's in the afternoon. 

Perfect and beautiful mostly beautiful skies. 

How I am feeling 

Thankful that we live in Galveston. 


On my mind 

Kind of worried about the Cowboy.  He has had a stomach bug a few days. And the allergies still.  We think the bug might be what he ate on Wednesday.  I hope! 

On the breakfast plate

I want to make these for the neighbors for Christmas.  The trees are Strawberries!

To relax this week I will 

I will  try not to be anxious  about the Cowboys health. 

His allergies and pain.  He sleeps  most of the day. 

I can't  get  him to drink enough  water.
