It feels really good to be back! The last three weeks of the year are really crunches for me. I am trying to finish strong at work while executing a whole month of Christmas activities (not including shopping) for our family. I also, inevitably, get sick and this year I got REALLY sick. I won't go into it. You've probably heard the story anyway. Oh, whatever, send me a personal message and I'll tell you if you really want to know. The point is that ironically, when I would most benefit from creating a meal plan, I abandon the process. Luckily, Scott stepped in some really amazing Thai-inspired recipes that were just want this patient needed and it took dinner off my plate.. har har.
Along with setting the stage for a much healthier 2014 I am toying with the idea of resolving to post all 52 meal plans this year. Here's to giving it the old college try!
