Happy New Year!

Since it is a new year I figure it is time to get back to writing on this blog :) I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. Ours were really great. Before Christmas we got the flu and lost electricity for a couple days but everyone was healthy and the lights were back on for our big Christmas gathering.
We have been having a cold and snowy winter here in Michigan. In fact, as I am writing this we are in the midst of a snowstorm which could (and looks like it will) bring us more than a foot of snow. We already had a few inches on the ground before this. School is already cancelled for tomorrow so we get to extend Christmas vacation a little longer!
I admit I am not ready to get back to the morning routine and the lunch making.

I didn’t really set any New Years Resolutions this year but I did set some goals. I set quite a few so I could incorporate all areas of my life.

Here a few of my goals: 1. Run my first marathon 2. Log 1000 miles running this year 3. Daily Bible Study- I am using Jesus Calling and also reading through the Bible  4. Project 365- I am really excited about this as I am bad about taking pictures and getting them printed.  I already bought my Project Life book for it. More on this on Friday.    5. I really want to work on building my friendships so I am going to make more of an effort to call friends and send handwritten notes. I bought some fun new stationery and Note Cards   6. Monthly date nights, even if they are just at-home dates.

I kinda got off track with the menu planning over the Holidays but am ready to get back.  Here is our menu plan for this week.  There are a few recipes from the Vegan Slow Cooking for Two cookbook.  My mom left her’s here so I found a few recipes in there that I want to try.

Monday:  Red Beans and Rice

Tuesday:  Chipotle Quinoa Sweet Potato Tacos with Cranberry Pomegranate Salsa

Wednesday: Mushroom Tempeh over Potatoes and Carrots (Vegan Slowcooker)

Thursday: BBQ Soy Curls (Vegan Slowcooker)

Friday:  Homemade Pizza night

Saturday:  Breaded Brussels Sprouts over Pasta (Vegan Richa)

Sunday: White Chili

Never Miss A Recipe!


  1. Jamie,
    We were at Green Dot Stables in Detroit just before Christmas and I ordered an appetizer that knocked my socks off:
    Sweet potatoes-Thyme-Pumpkin Seeds-Port Wine Cranberries-Maple & Colman’s Mustard Vinegar [Vegan]

    It tasted like they tossed the cooked sweet potatoes in with everything in a quick flash fashion, it was served warm.

    So, so good – your Tuesday dinner reminded me of it!

  2. Your menu sounds yummy! Anything chipotle gets my attention! I just shared my goals for 2014. Lots of running, strength training and learning!

    Thanks for linking up :)

  3. Yay for a full marathon! Sounds like it’s going to be a great year for you!

  4. Mmm, sounds like a tasty week :) the tacos definitely caught my eye!
