Menu Plan Monday Sept. 16


Oh, hello Monday.  When did you get here?

I feel like I had an exhausting weekend, but it wasn’t any worse than the ones before.  I think I am still recovering from the summer.

Sunday I had to run to the store so I used a promo-code at Redbox to rent the newest Star Trek movie.


I am so happy they decided to do a younger Enterprise crew, as opposed to creating a new crew.  I think the cast is excellent.

After doing dinner, baths, dishes, putting boys to bed, and making lunches, we finally turned it on about 9:30.  Which meant I didn’t get to bed till after 11:30!

I know, I am a party animal!



I started my meal plan earlier in the day, but the kids took over and I didn’t get it done yesterday.  When looking at recipes I came across the one for the Cheeseburger casserole, and just then my hubby walked by and said “tater tots! that looks awesome!”

So I had to add it to the plan.  Not really my first choice for a meal.  And let’s be honest, I will probably make some kind of pasta to eat with it.


Baby Sid has found a new way to get messy during meal times.


Really?  Not only to I have to clean his face, hair, ears, hands and arms; but now I have to clean his feet too?
