Organization of the desk calendar

october-2009-calendarAnyone who lives in South Western Ontario can vouch for me that yesterday was extremely beautiful outside, correct? It was 18ºC out there!! People were wearing tank tops and shorts. Of course we had to go out and enjoy the last bit of weather before the weather turns.

So, what does your month end calendar look like?

All my favorite people’s birthday are in October. Boyfriends, close friends and loved ones. I wonder if that means something? Do I flock towards them subconsciously?

Get this:

Boyfriend’s birthday: October 4
Best friend #1 birthday: October 22
Best friend #2 birthday: October 27
Nephew: October 31

That’s gotta mean something. haha. I always found that pretty interesting.

I hate messing up my calendar. I get paid on Friday’s, the purple $ sign you see scratched out was when I obviously couldn’t do my math right and got confused drawing every second Friday off as a pay day. Ugh. So I had to scratch it out. Unfortunately I do not get paid three times in October. Whatevs. It’ll be more exciting getting paid 3x a month come JANUARRRRRY.

November is looking pretty similar though too.


Annnnyway, onto more organizing for the week. Here’s my menu plan. I really need to get rid of a lot of things in our freezer (it’s the type that’s attached to the refrigerator, so it’s JAM.PACKED with pork chops and other frozen stuff that was on sale.)

Monday: Macaroni and Cheese
Tuesday: Chicken, mashed potatoes, and carrots (we bought a 10lb bag of potatoes!!)
Wednesday: Pork tenderloin marinade (without the pork tenderloin, just reg. boneless chops), with roasted potatoes, and broccoli
Thursday: Chicken penne alla vodka (Haven’t made this in aaaages. It’s so high in fat. Any recommendations for a replacement of Whipping Cream? I’m also going to replace the penne pasta with large shell pasta that was something likr $0.75 for a huge monster bag)
Friday: Frozen pizza (also on sale. We have three in the freezer)
Saturday: Honey garlic pork stir fry. (I haven’t had honey garlic on anything but chicken before, so hopefully this will be edible.)

Most of these meals can be found on my recipe page. I also plan on making jube-jube cake this week. MMMM. My Mom’s (grandmas?) old recipe. I haven’t had it in years. But it’s super easy to make. I’m stoked!

  1. You just saved me $3 Cassie. Seriously, I always hated purchasing such high fat cream and all we drink in the house is skim, so this works out perfectly.


  2. I never use whipping cream. Just skim (or whatever percent you want, but skim is obviously the healthiest choice) milk and flour. Add enough flour to get the milk to the consistency you want. :)

  3. I like that your desk calendar is nice and colorful. I however am rather AR and only do my desk calendar in pencil. This way I can erase things, as I hate actually scratching through them. I like to just pretend they were never there, LOL.
