    This column each week has really been a great idea. We have an incredibly busy week coming up and to think about a menu plan has been good way to avoid take-out:

    Sunday: Fish and Chips
    Monday: Pasta, meatballs/sausage
    Tuesday: Cub Scout Christmas Party
    Wednesday: German style pork spare ribs
    Thursday: chicken and rice
    Friday: leftovers
    Saturday: stromboli/calzone/pizza

    I’ve eaten almost solely take out last week. I think we’ll have

    Sunday: ham, potatoes, broccoli salad
    Monday: pulled pork sandwiches with left over potatoes and green beans
    Tuesday: curry
    Wednesday: stir fried vegetables
    Thursday: eat out
    Friday: pizza
    Saturday: who knows!

    Wednesday: Chicken and Beef stir fry
    Thursday: left overs
    Friday: Orzo with veggies and grilled chicken breast
    Saturday: Meatballs and salad (if there is any more lettuce and veggies left)

    Congratulations on finding Penzeys. I found them online maybe 10 years ago, and then found that they have a store in my city. I spend way too much every time I go there, and by golly, every dime is SOOO worth it. Their spices actually have flavor!! I am so ruined for grocery store brands now.

    I highly recommend their Extra Fancy Vietnamese Cinnamon. If I had to give up my Penzeys habit, that’s the one I would miss the most….

    Oh my. My Sunday was very busy (two Christmas parties), so I didn’t even Think about food till now. Oh! And my crock pot died! I am in mourning. (Will see what Santa brings before I go get another.)

    Monday: Catfish & frozen french fries. (Only when I pulled out what I thought was catfish, it was chicken. I cooked it like I would have cooked the fish.)
    Tuesday: RWA chapter party – Guys are on their own. (I thought this week was last week, and got my parties mixed up.)
    Wednesday: Out of town-Guys are still on their own.
    Thursday: Two parties in one night- 1 is potluck–will probably take salsa & chips again, because I’ll be coming back to town from parents’ and won’t have time to cook.
    Friday: Landry’s
    Saturday: Carne guisada (may switch w/Friday)
    Sunday: Chicken alfredo

    I am Determined to get to Landry’s for dinner (& their shrimp fresca) before the coupons expire! I’m going to keep putting it on my menus till I drag the fella there.

    Hi Katherine (and Nancy) Thanks for posting! Have a merry Christmas 🙂

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
