One of the things I love to do is read blogs. I don't know how I was turned on to the world of blogs, but I am thankful for it-however it happened. There are so many great blogs and websites out there with tons of wonderful tips and information. Most of the blogs I read (actually, probably all of the blogs I read) are authored by women. Mothers. A few of the ones I was perusing this week were talking about menu planning. Apparently there is a huge subset of mothers who plan out their family's weekly menu (mostly dinner) and even have a budget for the grocery store. I would like to study this subset of the population more and maybe partake in a few of their rituals. This 'menu planning' (is that how you pronounce it?) sounds very intriguing and I think it may be very beneficial to my life. My whole entire life could change. So, if any of you have any tips or advice regarding menu planning and budgeting I would love to hear them.
Isn't this pretty? I love how the berries are still clinging to the branches and the contrast with the snow. It was a little tree in a bank parking lot on some road on our way to a skating rink. I made my husband stop so I could take a picture of it.
