Menus and To Do List for the Week of 09/12

It's a fairly easy week for me both To Do List-wise and Cooking-wise because I need to set aside several hours each day for reading. I review books and products for Amazon, and have fallen a bit behind, plus have two great hot-off-the-press quilting books to review for my Quilting on a Budget blog. (I'll be doing a GiveAway for one of the books, so do stop by later this week!)  If I don't schedule the time to read, it won't get done. So picture me with a nice glass of iced coffee, sitting on my deck enjoying our gorgeous Fall Ohio weather... It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it!

I normally add my To Do List link to a web site called "Domestically Obsessed", but I just went there and found out she has taken a break from blogging. Although I'm disappointed (I *love* reading other people's To Do Lists! I know - creepy, right?), I certainly can understand that LIFE HAPPENS!

If you have a To Do List of items you want to accomplish this week, please share it right here in the comments section! Seriously. Other people's To Do Lists either remind me of what I need to do or make me feel good about what I've already done -- or (usually) both.
