Meals! Week 9 and the Christmas spirit

1:19 PM

No recipes to share with you this week but I'll give you a post anyway. We are scrounging this week. I went to the grocery store only picking up a couple essentials, like bread, and maybe a little chocolate...but that's it. We are out of town for the holidays and I hate knowing food is sitting in the fridge spoiling, so we are using the bits and pieces we have. Our fridge was due for a good clean anyhow. ;) And what better time to do it?

This weeks (not so grand) meals…

Monday: Thai honey peanut chicken (left-overs!)
Tuesday: Fish sticks and tots, yep, I found a few left in the freezer, and wa-la! Dinner at its finest ;)
Wednesday: Roasted squash and quinoa
Thursday: Fried rice
Friday: Fried egg sandos
Saturday: Pesto pasta with sun-dried tomatoes (maybe, if I scrounge enough basil in our garden)
Sunday: Pasta left-overs or eggs and rice

And well, there you have it. Not the most healthful, but there are a few veggies in there right? Carrots and peas in the rice, and uh...we will count the squash so I feel a little better. :)

Which brings us to Christmas. First of all, can you believe Christmas is just about here?

And secondly, have you noticed the Christmas spirit? 

The past few days, I have ran into quite a few very nice strangers. It is like everyone is in the Christmas spirit. People have insisted on getting and taking back our shopping carts, opening doors, and kindly greeting us, even in the hustle and bustle. Everyone seems to be doing just a little bit more. Buying drinks for the person behind them..using manners. The Christmas spirit is surely out there. And what a difference it makes. After all, it is the little things that can make the biggest difference. Right? If only we didn't reserve this type of "behavior" for one time a year.

I'm not a big New Years resolution maker, but perhaps this year I will make it my personal goal to do the "extra" things all year, not just in December. Life gets busy, I totally understand that, but is a little more effort that hard? I guess we will see!

Merry (almost) Christmas my friends.
