Next Week's Menu

Hubby does the shopping around here so I have taken it upon myself to do my meal planning Friday evenings so that everything can be purchased on the weekend.  I highlight the items he needs to purchase and email the menu off to him so that purchases can be made.

I'm using the new Weight Watchers Points Plus system and it looks solid - very healthy and balanced as long as I follow the rules.  I went ahead and totaled up all the points on my weekly menu too so that makes tracking a . . . well, a piece of cake.  (Maybe I need to come up with a new metaphor?  Easy as pie doesn't work either.)

Eventually, just to make things fun, I am going to learn some Brazilian recipes and figure the WW points on those too.  But for now I will stick with family favorites such as Taco Soup and Baked Broccoli - decidedly un-Brazilian, but Rome was not built in a day.  (I sense the need for another metaphor . . . ).

On the topic of Portuguese today, I managed to add the "Portuguese Word of the Day" widget and some language learning sites to the page.  I finished Pimsleur's Lesson 12 today and, as soon as I finish this post, I am going to do a little practice in my workbook as well.  This qualifies as fun for me - just so you know.

You will see less of me next time,



  1. Try "A walk in the park," it indicates ease, while encouraging good habits. :)

  2. A walk in the park . . . yes! Good metaphor, thank you.
