Organising your recipes & menu plan Monday - 12 Nov 2007

I wrote a post for Clutter Control Freak recently on organising your recipes. You can read it here - there's also a wonderful resource in the comments!

At the moment, I'm scheduled for surgery on Friday (minor female stuff) which means I've been cooking because I'm not sure how quickly I'll be mobile ;) I'm booked off for two weeks afterwards and then he's said to "take it easy" for 6 weeks in total, so no exercise - YAY! (Have to look on the bright side, right?!)

Menu for the week
Marcia - out
Dion - fasting

Chilli con carne, rice and carrots

Baked potatoes with spicy lentil sauce (food from freezer - taking with me to work as I'm going straight to another talk)

Fish, chips and salad (carried over from last week)

probably hospital food - yuck! (on the bright side, weight loss!)
Dion can pick from the freezer :)

*** I discovered a healthy snack this week - julienned carrots! I take a small container (about 50g) and keep it next to the computer so when I snack, I snack healthy and I find I like the crunchiness. Now here's the thing - without saying a thing, I saw Dion doing the same yesterday. Isn't that cool?!
Visit Laura for some great menu ideas.

If you're interested in joining my research and development team, email me!

Thanks for reading! Come back tomorrow to see how I organise my vitamins.
Oh, and PS, I'd love to read about some of your small, simple pleasures in life!

Looks like a yummy menu.

I'm also paying close attention to your recipe organistaion. I think that may be on the agenda this week sometime.

Good luck with your surgery! I hope your recovery is quick! My menu plan is up too. :)
