the menu.

Welcome to my first Menu Planning Monday post!

This is going to be quite a hectic week for DH so I'm afraid I'm left to fend for myself most of the week.

Monday: baked tilapia with vegetables
Tuesday: lentil loaf, broccoli
Wednesday: holubchi (stuffed cabbage), salad
Thursday: chicken pasta skillet, garlic bread
Friday: lentil loaf, broccoli and zucchini (as takeaway)

No plans for the weekend as we will be staying at a relative's house.

You can find more over at I'm an Organizing Junkie!


Okay -- taking pictures of everything is going to be quite a daunting task!

the hotSACKS giveaway @ JANE4girls.

Hey y'all! Just thought you should know about the amazing giveaway over at JANE4girls! She's giving away a 5 bag set of Ultimate hotSACKS with matching Meshy hotSACKS! They're ADORABLE!

Sign up today!

the project.

Here's my goal....

I plan on documenting every piece of food that I consume. Yes, this is possible! I have not necessarily been making the wisest decisions when it boils down to WHAT I am eating.

This is a problem.

So, starting tomorrow, I shall take pictures of everything - or almost, anyway. We shall see.

To kick things off, I would like to share with you a cookie recipe I found a few years ago. These are delicious!

Cranberry Orange Cookies
from bakingsheet.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg
zest of one large orange (about 1 tbsp)
3/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar, beating with an electric mixer until light. Beat in egg and orange zest. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring only until just combined. Stir in the cranberries.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/4-inch balls) onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for 9-12 minutes, until edges are very lightly browned. Cool for 3-4 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen.

See you tomorrow!
