Menu Plan Monday - Week of 7/29/13

Welcome to a hastily put together Menu Plan!! Usually I do my planning on Sunday evenings, but last night we went to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate DH and his brother's birthday (they were born 1 day apart (and his parents were born 2 day apart!)). When we got home I was way too stuffed to think about food!!! So here is a quickly thought about meal plan!!

Monday: leftover chicken and cheese quesedilla pie

Tuesday: Cheesecake Factory again - just an app and 1/2 price cheesecake!
 Wednesday: Creamy Chicken and Rice Bake

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: Easy Weekday Chicken Pot Pie

Saturday and Sunday: I will probably make baked ziti on Saturday and have the leftovers Sunday

Dessert of the Week: I have Greek Yogurt to use up, so I will be making Greek Yogurt Pound Cake and Creamy Greek Yogurt Nutella Dip as something fun for the kiddo!

We're Back from Colorado!

flamingos at the Denver Zoo

What a fun trip! The kiddo and I went out to visit my parents for just over a week. It was really nice to get away and go back to a place I love so much. It was E's first visit, and I think he liked it too, especially Pa's car and garage lol we did not do too many touristy things, other than the Denver Zoo and Pearl Street Mall. We also went to a great children's museum in Lafayette. The time went by way too fast!!

Now back to real life for just a few weeks, then we are all 3 off to Disneyland!! The whirlwind summer goes on :)

SmashBurger - the onion rings were amazing!!!


He looooved riding the car at the children's museum

going down a waterslide all. by. himself!

The "toot toot" at the zoo. Yup he liked this better than the animals!

Riding a tractor!

Freddy's burgers and onion rings! The custard was really good too!
We will be back for Christmas, but man do I wish we were going back sooner!!

Menu Plan Monday - Week of 7/8/13

Well, last week's menu did not go as planned.. .in fact the only thing I made that I had planned was hot dogs lol! So this week looks similar to last week... plus more potatoes! On Sat. the kiddo and I are headed out to my parents for a week, so Jeff is on his own! He actually has mentioned a few things he'd like to make (that I  don't like so I don't make), so I think he'll be ok ;)

Monday: leftover pizza

Tuesday: Perdue Italian chicken cutlets and creamy au gratin potatoes
 Wednesday: something from the freezer

Thursday:  Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Friday: leftovers

Saturday and Sunday: Jeff is on his own!

Dessert of the Week: none!

Happy Independence Day!

Hope that you all have a great, fun day! We realized that we have a certificate for a free round of mini golf at the fun center near our house, so we will be doing that. :)

AMF's Summer Unplugged and Summer Pass Programs

Happy almost 4th of July!  What fun activities do you have planned? We are planning to go to a local park/historic site and going for a walk. Now that the kiddo is 2, we are planning on doing a lot more activities with him. One of the things I am most anxious to do with him is go bowling! I have always loved to bowl, even though I am horrible at it, and I really want Emmett to have some great memories like I do. So I was really excited to hear about AMF's new and improved Summer Unplugged and Summer Pass programs.

Menu Plan - Week of 07/01/12

And we are back from vacation! And totally exhausted LOL Walt Disney World was so much fun. Then we went to Sesame Place to meet up with a group of ladies who had babies the same month as Emmett. It was a lot to add to our vacation, but it was still good and somewhat relaxing? No back to getting the kiddo on a schedule and trying to get more sleep. J. has this week off, so it will be good to have him around! This is going to be an easy week!

Monday: pasta and sauce, maybe baked ziti if I feel up to it!

Tuesday: leftovers
 Wednesday: leftovers from the freezer

Thursday:  The 4th of July! It is coming up so fast! We are gonna have hot dogs and oven fries
Friday: Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie (did not get to make it last week!)

Saturday and Sunday: leftovers or fend for yourself!!

Dessert of the Week: no clue, but I will probably make something for the 4th.
