Menu Plan Monday Nov. 18

It’s time for menu plan Monday again.  And there is less then two weeks until Thanksgiving.  Meaning December and the Christmas season is coming up soon. 

Are you ready?  I must confess, I am not.  I thought I would be, but nope. Not yet.

Ian is.  Everyday he keeps asking if it is still November.  And telling people it’s gonna snow next week.  I think he is looking forward to Christmas.

I am looking forward to Sid being able to participate in Christmas this year.

Baby Sid loves tomatoes.  I mean LOVES tomatoes.  He has consumed a whole tomato before.  I absolutely hate them.  They make me sick.  But now I have to order my food with the tomatoes on the side.

For him.

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.

LOVED IT!

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?

Tue:  3 Ingredient Crock Pot Tacos 

Wed: Chicken Pesto Wraps with salad

Menu Plan Monday Sept. 9

It has been a crazy week and weekend.

Baby Sid’s party turned out fantastic.  I can’t wait to put up some pictures.

I have seen him do a number on food and make a spectacular mess, but he didn’t really get that messy with the cake.  The Jello though, that was everywhere, and the blue took forever to come off his fingers!

I will admit that I am still recovering from the event.  It was really hard to try to think about what to cook next week.  I don’t want to step in a kitchen for a month!

Tue:  Three Cheese Chicken Alfredo Bake

Wed: Asian Pork Tenderloin with Cheesy Potato Casserole

Menu Plan Monday May 6th

It is finally getting warm here in the Pacific NW.

I say that like it is summer time and we haven’t had any nice days.

Today I wanted my husband to blow up Ian’s little pool because it was getting really hot.  He wanted to mow the lawn first.  So Ian and I headed over to Bamma’s house.

Her pool is not up and running yet, since May just started.  Although she did work on it this weekend.  Which means the weather will probably go to crap now that we have a way to cool off.

Since we couldn’t cool off in either of the pools we improvised.
