Menu Plan: December 12-December 18

Have you discovered Pinterest? I love it. I avoided joining for a long, long time. I thought it would just be another time-waster. You know, another distraction that would keep me from accomplishing anything of importance.

Yet, Pinterest has been very helpful to me in a variety of ways from menu planing, to home schooling, and even for work projects. So, yep, I am on the Pinterest bandwagon. My daughter has joined in saying, “Momma, you NEED to pin that recipe!” Not to mention all the arts ‘n craft ideas she gets. Goodness knows, I am NOT gifted in that way. Thankfully, Pinterest provides her with some inspiration and ideas. Monitored by me, of course!

Much of this week’s menu includes recipes that I have pinned on my Pinterest boards. Really what good does it do me if I never use them?  So, I am trying to be purposeful and cook the recipes, even though I rarely follow a recipe completely. Unless, of course, I am baking. Then, I have to follow it to the letter, or else I get horrible results! 🙂

Spicy Egyptian and Lentil Soup,   Pita Bread, and Carrot Sticks with Homemade Hummus
