Goodbye 2014

“I grasped two things: I wasn't as happy as I could be, and my life wasn't going to change unless I made it change.” 
― Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project

As we head into 2015 I invite you to join me in our own Happiness Project. We're using the book by Gretchen Rubin as a guide, but really, this is our project, the happiness that you and I and the other members of the group create for ourselves. It's a closed group, but if you'd like an invite, let me know in the comments below.

In prepping for this, I updated my google calendar based menu. It's 20 days of meal prompts loosely based around the following themes:

  • meatless Monday 
  • Taco Tuesday aka international cuisine 
  • Wacky Wednesday aka new recipes 
  • Thrifty Thursday aka leftovers 
  • Friendly Fridays - invite people over or go out 
  • Saturday is Noodle Night (any ideas for something alliterative with Pasta? Yeah, me either) 
  • Sunday is Homemade Pizza Night
We do hot breakfasts most days of the school year around here, but at Oh Dark Thirty it can be hard for me to think of what to make. I've found it helps tremendously if I can prep a little the night before and then just fry the eggs or bake or present the muffins the next morning. 

BTW, there's a good read on meal planning strategies at

So, goodbye 2014. You were an interesting year, I said final goodbyes to too many people near and dear to my heart and "Until We Meet Again" to pretty much everyone else I knew in the world. On the plus side I spent October, November, and December meeting old friends for the very first time.
