HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

Been another long week for us here.  Hubby is still recovering from the surgery he had a few weeks back for a massive shoulder tear that included 3 tendons so I’ve been busy playing nursemaid making sure he does what he is supposed to, but really making sure he doesn’t do what he isn’t supposed to.  He was supposed to stay “immobile” for 6 weeks before beginning physical therapy and we’re coming up on 2 weeks complete. But now dr. says physical therapy won’t begin before June because the tear was so massive.

Be sure to link up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

HEALTH & BEAUTY TIP
These days I use coconut oil for most cooking that requires any kind of frying. But, coconut oil has wonderful health and beauty uses too.

Every other week I use a small handful of coconut oil and work it through my hair.  I let it sit for 20 minutes before showering, but after I comb it through my hair I rub the remaining oil on my hands across my face.

I started doing this after a bad perm a year ago and my hair is softer and silkier than when I was a young girl and my face is clearer and smoother than a newborn baby.

HOMEMAKING TIP

When I’m making a couple of veggies and want less clean up, I cover the cookie sheet with foil and then make foil dividers.  These Brussels Sprouts were roasted in a balsamic glaze while the asparagus was done in a lemon butter.

Been trying to get my mom to get rid of things for quite some time that don’t fit.  She recently got a bee up her butt and started going through everything and making piles for donation.  Here’s just one of several piles:

ON MY MIND
Tons of things, but nothing specific LOL.

I tried slow cooker pork carnitas last week (a different recipe) and they were quite good! Do you have a recipe for your salisbury steak? I would love a good tried and true recipe for it 🙂

I use coconut oil for my hair too! Also my face, arms, legs – anywhere I have dry skin. Love it.

Hubs is doing okay, but just plain getting bored. I hope you try the chicken scallopini – it really is divine. I'll post the salmon if it turns out well.

Have a great week.

Happy Monday my Dear!

Hope that hubby is behaving better about his shoulder!!

Love your menu plan again – especially the chicken scallopini sounds divine! And great tip for doing 2 veggies at once on your sheet pan. Love that!! And the future salmon recipe sounds wonderful – would love to see that one.

Your Mom sounds like mine – and she just brought a bunch to good will recently too! Lol

Happy week ahead. xoxo
