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!!

Following your lead, we've been doing weekly(ish) meal plans. You're right, it IS so much easier. It makes grocery shopping easy and it's great to have already decided what we're eating for dinner that night. Tonight is groundnut stew... I remember reading here that Mark likes it and I've head positive reviews elsewhere as well. Neither of us has ever tried it.
