Menu Plan Monday (July 27th)

Well once again another week has slipped past and I only finished half of what I wanted to. This week is another chance. Right? Meals last week went well. We ended up eating leftovers Thursday rather than Quiche. And Friday we went downtown and had chicken fajitas at our local whole foods shop. It was well worth it. the fajitas were great. And it was nice to spend time out of the house, even if it was a very hot evening. The other fun thing that happened this weekend is that Mark and I went on a double date with some friends to see the new Harry Potter movie. It was great; the movie and the date :). After as we talked over the movie, we all agreed that we wished more of the memories of Voldemort were showed. Mark even said he thought it should be split into two movies to get all the information across. But all in all, I really thought it was excellent. Ok so now on to this weeks menu plan. Check it out. And don't forget to visit Organizing Junkie for more menus and idea!

Monday: Lasagna rolls and green beans, maybe garlic bread?
Tuesday: Asian Veggie Stir-Fry with chicken
Wednesday: potluck in the park- Taco Casserole
Thursday: Couscous- Stuffed Peppers
Friday: Summer Ratatouille
Saturday: Leftovers
Sunday: Leftovers or Breakfast dinner

Menu Plan Monday (July 20th) and short update

So I've been feeling bad for being so absent with blogging. To be perfectly honest, I have been reading on another site and blogging just hasn't seemed important enough to drag my attention away. But I'm feeling the need to step back and dive back into blogging as much as I'm capable. Life is still crazy around here. I've not been feeling my normal self: tired and such. Nothing serious, but the constant low blood sugar I've been battling is even more exhausting than the exhaustion from the low blood sugar itself. :( This makes things interesting when trying to chase two boys around the house. Bible school last week was a welcome break. As Ian was gone Monday - Thursday morning from 9 am to noon. He seemed to really like. He won't always tell me much when he got home, but the next morning he was always excited and ready to go long before it was time. My friend S had volunteered to take him and I picked him up. It worked out great. S's son E is Ian's age and she said it was a nice transition for E to have Ian with him when they walked in. Being their first year at Bible school it was also nice that it was at our church this year. We cohost bible school with another church in town and it trades every year who's church building is used. So being at our church meant the boys got to be in their Sunday School room. Which I think helped too. Mostly I just hope the excitement Ian expressed will transfer to preschool when he starts in Sept. Ok so I've rambled enough for this post. Here is the plan for meals this week. After a week of not planning I truly realize how much I rely on planning out my week in terms of meals. It makes dinner time go so much smoother. Be sure to check out Organizing Junkie too. She always has great meals and the other links are wonderful for recipes and ideas. :)

Monday: Spaghetti with Sausage, side green beans
Tuesday: Asparagus "Pesto" with grilled chicken breasts (I have some "pesto" in my freezer making this a very simple meal!)
Wednesday: Church Potluck in the park- potato salad
Thursday: Zucchini Quiche
Friday: Pizza Braid
Saturday: Leftovers
Sunday: Breakfast Dinner

Wishing you all a Great Monday!!

Menu Plan Monday- July 6th

Well I'm back. We actually got back from Goshen on Sunday, June 28th. This last week was crazy catch up. Mark was home both Monday and Friday which was really nice, since the boys have been having some trouble adjusting to being home. Going from an adult-kid ratio of about 3:1 to 1:2 has been a big adjustment. Especially for Ian. He has had to relearn that sometimes Mommy just can't watch everything he wants to show me at the exact moment he asks. I'm hoping this week will be better and we can settle back into our routine. Well more on our vaction later. I promise to post some things from our trip, hopefully even in the next day or two. Here is this weeks menu. And don't forget to check out the Organizing Junkie for more idea.

Monday: Black Bean, Zucchini and Tomato Quesadillas
Tuesday: Leftovers
Wednesday: Church Potluck in the Park- bring potato salad
Thrusday: Salad Potluck in the park with Small Group-bring Sesame Chicken Couscous Salad
