The Week's Possibilities

What I thought sounded good at the beginning of the week:

1.Something with leftover shredded chicken (no clue what but the chicken is thawed)
2.Pork tenderloin with coleslaw, tomatoes, and riced cauliflower
3.Weird paleo pizza stuffed bell peppers, tossed salad, carrots, and some other vegetable
4.Stir fry chicken with broccoli, carrots and mushrooms
5.Grilled chicken, cole slaw, green beans, grilled fruits
6.Grilled steak, baked sweet potato, sauteed brussels sprouts, tossed salad
7.Paleo Buffalo "wings" coleslaw, fakin potato salad made with cauliflower

And the reason I have no idea why I bother with a list:

1. shredded chicken became a veggie dense chicken salad with a side of broccoli
2. pork tenderloin and salad
3. paleo meatloaf baked potatoes (sweet potato for me) cole slaw, green beans
4 zucchinighetti with meat sauce, (shredded zucchini "noodles") tossed salad
5. steak, huge tossed salad
6 leftover pork tenderloin, sliced vegetables (everything cold straight from the fridge)
7. Something that I don't even remember eating so it must have been a bad and tasteless leftover meal

This week's possibilities that may or may not happen:

1.Buffalo chicken breasts, coleslaw, "cauliflotato" salad
2.Some TexMex Paleo casserole, salad, green beans
3.Turkey, cauliflower dressing, fakey gravy, asparagus, waldorf salad
4.turkey leftovers, cranberry relish? sweet potatoes, green bean casserole?
5.steak, tossed salad, baked sweet potato
6.paleo tacos (regular tacos for others) taco fixings, chopped salad
7. stuffed peppers, coleslaw, cooked carrots, pineapple slices

                                                  Major to-do's this week


paint outside brick wall at lake
scrub deck and screened porch at lake (de pollen, should be the last time)
scrub deck and screened porch at home (ditto)
completely clean upstairs den
finish anything left over from this week

Adding yet another "F" this week.  Finish, Focus and Fine Tune.  It is now time for some of the finishing touches that have been neglected. Ugh, like silver polishing.


  1. I want you to make the caulifloato salad because I want you write about it. Also, when you are the lake house do you find it easier to work on your to do list than at home?

    1. I made the cauliflotato salad last night so look for it in a few days. We bought a small place at the lake a year and a half ago. It was a good deal and fantastic gigantic lot, but the house was not in great shape. We spent 3 months working our tails off just to get it habitable. Now we are getting it livable and it is an ongoing battle of routine chores and heavy labor. In the next 2 weeks we have to tear down the dock, which is rotting and needs to be replaced. Somehow when we planned our budget we forgot to include our time and our backs! The labor is harder, but it is more enjoyable because it's in a prettier place.

  2. "And the reason I have no idea why I bother with a list:"- That made me laugh.
    Good luck with the chores. We are doing a bunch too. Its the no fun time of year.

  3. I keep telling TheHub that I was born for the good life. When I tell him he just laughs and passes me a paint roller, rake, sander, your poison. Spring is a beautiful time of year, but it is just a pain in the butt.

  4. Our hubs were cut from the same cloth. Sigh.
