Menu Planning Monday - July 29th







I feel terrible that I have been neglecting my blog this summer. Time has just seemed to get away from us and I haven't caught up yet. I thought the kids would be less busy once they were done with school for the summer?

Nothing much to do about the past - but we can press forward from now though! Here is this weeks menu, leading up to when 4 out of 5 of us will be gone away for 1 camp or another!

Monday - Pasta night
Tuesday - Chicken (Quorn "fake" chicken pieces) and rice
Wednesday - BBQ hot dogs, burns with corn on the cob
Thursday - Homemade macaroni and cheese
Friday - Picnic dinner at the beach
Saturday - Pizza night!
Sunday - My husband will be solo for the next 3 days - so whatever he wants!

Menu Planning Monday - June 10th




Just 2 more weeks of school - we can make it, right?!?! With the addition to summer soccer now for the lil man, I feel like we are even busier then usual, especially on Monday (karate from 4:30-5, soccer at 5:30 on the other side of town). Thankfully it's only Mondays that have the dual activities, and thankfully only for about 6 weeks. End of the school year activities are picking up, with addition to 3 out of 4 kids having birthdays in the next 2 weeks - I'm just praying for July to get her, and swiftly!

Monday - Picnic dinner of sandwiches, strawberries, carrots and drinks for Andrew and I, microwave meals for the rest (first night of summer soccer, right after karate class!)
Tuesday - BLTs
Wednesday - Chef salad
Thursday - Subs, veggies and chips
Friday - One pot pasta night (8th grade moving up celebration)
Saturday - Pita pocket pizzas
Sunday - fend-for-yourself (shopping day)

A Friday ritual. A single photo(s) - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Menu Planning Monday - June 3rd




Anyone else already "checked out" for the school year and ready for summer? For those you read this and are already onto summer vacation, let me say I'm highly jealous! But I'm pretty such I checked out end of February, right after winter recess and the start of state testing prep for the kids. But I'll leave that for another time..

So This week is my last regular Girl Scout meeting before summer vacation starts. I still plan on meeting a couple of times a month over the summer for girls who want to have the chance to earn their second Journey award, so they have a chance to earn the summit award before they bridge to Cadettes next year *weep* My girls are growing up! An orthopedic surgeon appointment post-surgery for my knee, a spring concert, karate class, a Zoo (1st graders) and Hospital (girl scouts) field trip will help round out this very busy week also. Thank goodness summer vacation is right around the corner! I may complain about how busy I am, but I do love it. And it keeps me out of trouble... lol Plus, my kids still want me around for their activities, I'll take that for as long as they want me!

So to that end, here is this weeks menu to keep us feed while we're sprinting around town this week!


Monday - Nuggets (chicken and vegetarian ones) and tater tots
Tuesday - Breakfast for dinner night (french toast, sausage, eggs and regular toast)
Wednesday - Bar-B-que chicken (and vegetarian burgers), salt potatoes, salad
Thursday - Pasta night
Friday - Subs/sandwiches and chips, veggies and dip
Saturday - Pizza and salad
Sunday - Not sure yet... shopping day so I want to see what the weather is like, maybe grilling outside

Menu Planning Monday - May 27th




It's no shock that I've been a bit lacking in the blogging department. Spring (and the winter holiday seaso0 seems to be such a busy time of year, I barely have time to breath.

Summer will be better, right?

It's seems like a short week for us, just getting back home after spending the Memorial Day holiday weekend at with my sister and brother-in laws house. And my adorable nephews. You can still call boys adorable at ages 12 and 8, right?

Without further ado...

Monday - Baked Ziti with garlic and herb french bread (in Watertown!)
Tuesday - Pizza
Wednesday - Grilled teriyaki chicken and croissants.
Thursday - Sandwiches
Friday - Perogies and asparagus
Saturday - Homemade pizza
Sunday - Grilled chicken halves, salt potatoes, salad
