Menu Plan Monday

I hope all of you had a great Christmas and have had a couple of days to recover!

This week is going to be a pretty simple menu week. It seems that a couple of the mystery shop companies I contract with are having a hard time filling some restaurant shops that are to be performed this week. It's the end of the month and not to mention the end of the year and contracts need to be completed. So, I have had some calls and requests to complete a couple of secret shops this week at local restaurants. I have no problem doing them this week. After preparing and the cleaning from Christmas , I will gladly go out to eat and get paid TRIPLE to do so and reimbursed for our meals!

News years Eve we are hosting a little card party here but, we will be serving appetizers for dinner. So, that will be fun and easy.

So, here is my super easy menu for this next week.


Restaurant Mystery Shop


Restaurant Mystery Shop


Ham salad sandwiches, pierogies and sliced fresh veggies

New Years Eve

Taco Soup, homemade bread, leftover niblets
