How about starting the New Year with a plan?!januarymealplan

Week 1

  • Wednesday, January 1—We’re swimming in leftovers and I’m making homemade bagels just to show 2014 who’s boss.
  • Thursday, January 2—Spicy Tomato Soup and Cheese and Pesto Paninis
  • Friday, January 3—Homemade Pizza (Try our new flavor with pesto, spicy eye-talian sausage, feta, spinach and sun dried tomatoes—SO GOOD!)
  • Saturday, January 4th—Quilting, Raclette and Fondue Party!  This is a redo of New Year’s Eve, because it’s my birthday and, well, I’ll eat if I want to:)  Read more about raclette here.  It’s a fun way to eat in a crowd, somewhat rustic, somewhat fancy!  I bought my Raclette grill from Amazon, of course, and with my prime membership, had it in 2 days. (Thank you to our friends, Sebastian and Sara, for introducing us!)  For the fondue, I melt — 1 stick of butter, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1 bag of chocolate chips, 1 cup of sugar, 1 t. vanilla and mix on low heat until all is melted and delicious!

  1. I just wanna come eat with you. I think (I KNOW) it’d be worth the drive. Isn’t Bean Station close to Knoxville? I know the way like the back of my hand!

    Sounds delicious! And quilting party? How fun!

  2. Thanks…looks excellent….we are swimming in homemade chilli, homemade ranch dip, wings, onion rings, popcorn, sugar cookies, and floor puzzles, and bloody marys on this New Years Day!!!

  3. I thought I couldn’t love you any more than I do and then you go and put In and Out Burger on your monthly menu.

  4. Happy Almost Birthday! Mine is also on the 4th! And I looove Raclette! I lived in Switzerland as a child and remember walking to the Saturday market or festive events at the town square and getting Raclette, or eating it huddled around the kitchen table. My favorite is it drizzled over fingerling potatoes, gherkins, pickled pearl onions with smoked paprika on top. Yum! Enjoy, wish this was on my Birthday menu : )

  5. Happy Birthday! Mine is the 3rd which is why my NY resolution must always be postponed every year. I don’t know if this is possible but I’d love a “print” option following all your recipes. You could save me a lot of work and go ahead and publish your cookbook. Thanks

  6. This meal plans sounds so yummy. I have a question about the main picture. Is it the tomato soup with kale and other things added?

    I can’t wait to make some of these menu items.

  7. Hope you had a wonderful Birthday! Thank you for all the inspiration, and ministry, and cool ideas for fashion and home that you share with us. You have inspired me, and encouraged me. You have been such a blessing to me! God Bless You!!! Love, June

  8. Thanks so much for these posts! They must be a ton of work, but I appreciate them SO much. I love to try a few new recipes each month. Keeps things exciting around here!

  9. Thanks for the time you take to post this! I’m trying several new things each month and loving it. 🙂 Helps break up the monotony of our “normal rotation.” Also, your google calendar idea to notate and store recipes on repeat has SAVED. MY.LIFE!

  10. Oh Edie, how I appreciate your God centered life and that you share it with all of us. Indeed God’s purpose IS for us to be saved through our Blessed Savior Jesus and what a glorious purpose that is. As moms and wives, we equip others to “go into the world” and live the word for others that they may come to know Christ and be saved as well. What purpose could ever be higher!! Thank you for your blog and deeelicious recipes!!
