Dinner Menu Week 2

21 Jan

Here’s this week’s dinner menu. I really should put it up earlier to give people a chance to decide if they want to use anything from it.

This week, I plan to take a day off from cooking. Saturday is our family night, and I’d prefer to grab something quick so we can continue our fun.

Dinner Menu

17 Jan

I always have a hard time coming up with dinner ideas. I have to cook for many different people, with many different tastes. We were eating out too much and I finally decided, NO MORE.

I’m trying a variety of new recipes and trying to avoid fast (or semi-fast) foods. Each week I make a menu for the next week. The meals are generally easy to make because I am short on time and I really don’t like cooking much.

I thought it might be helpful to share the menus here. Hopefully, they’ll give you some ideas. Feel free to use them as they are, or pick and choose as needed. If you enjoy a menu, please SHARE it. If you need a recipe for any of the meal ideas, just ask. I’d be more than happy to share upon request. 😀

You can also find the menus on my Facebook page.

Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

5 Sep

I made this list for my daughters. I think they get a little overwhelmed when told, “clean the bathroom!” It’s much easier to follow a checklist and tick off things once they are done. I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m a list maker. Lists keep me on the right path or else my day ends up a mess.

Anyway, this list combines things for our two bathrooms. The main bathroom has a regular tub with shower curtain. No window. The guest bathroom has a shower with door and a high window. Those are the two main differences.

This is our Sunday routine. The Wednesday routine is a quick 10 minute tidy, while this one takes about an hour.

This probably won’t fit your bathroom, but feel free to use and remove or add to the list.


  • Gather supplies (spray cleaner, glass cleaner, paper towels, 2 cloths, bucket, vacuum or broom)
  • Put away anything out of place (hair brushes, laundry, toys, etc.)
  • Remove all towels for washing (once per week)
  • Empty small trash can
  • Remove items from on top of sink, tub, or toilet (toothbrush holders, shampoo bottles, etc.)
  • Spray the cleanser on sink, cabinets, toilet (on & around), tub, shower door & walls, door & knob, and inside trash.
  • Use paper towel to wipe down sink and cabinets.
  • Use cloth to wipe down bathroom door, knob, light switch and walls (where necessary)
  • Use same cloth to clean the trash can.
  • Use cloth to clean tub (inside & out) and shower (inside & out), including walls.
  • Use paper towel to clean the outside and inside of toilet. Flush to rinse. (do not flush paper towels)
  • Use paper towel and glass cleaner to wipe mirrors and bathroom sink/tub fixtures.
  • Use vacuum hose to suck up dust and hair around the bathroom or use a broom to sweep the floor.
  • Fill bucket with warm water and cleanser.
  • Use the bucket and cloth to quickly scrub the floor. Don’t forget behind the door and toilet.
  • After the floor is dry, replace all items (rugs, toothbrush holders, candles, etc)

What is your bathroom cleaning routine? Is it something quick? How often do you do it?
