Menu Plan Monday: February 20th

I mean technically its still Monday, so I'm not really that late with this post right!? These long weekends always get me confused.

It's been a pretty decent weekend too. We didn't go on any grand adventures, but we did have fun. We went to the library, and went out for lunch, lots of sleeping too. And today while I did yard work, David played some street ball with the kids. So it wasn't quite what we had planned, but we were still together and that's good enough for me.

Grocery shopping got done today too. Dad used to warn me that growing boys eat EVERYTHING. It is true. These guys are not picky and will eat pretty much anything. When you are bagging asparagus, and your kid says "YES! I love asparagus!" people look at you crazy. Then he asked if we could try Brussels Sprouts. I did my best not to make a face. That is my the one food I don't ever want to eat again. I suppose I could just try it. Lead by example right.  Sigh...

Monday:  Mozzarella Chicken.  We played outside until dinner time, so we had pizza instead.

Tuesday:  Mozzarella Chicken and salads.  Take 2.

Wednesday:  Beef and Broccoli.

Thursday:  Fiesta Cream Chicken with Corn.

Friday: Parmesan & Herb Salmon with asparagus. 

So, what did y'all do this weekend? Anything fun and exciting? We had a storm blow through last night and turns out 6 tornadoes too. Craziness! Thankfully it's a short week. Before we know it, it will be the weekend again!

10 things that made me happy this week

This week has been quite jam packed. But I kinda loved it. Mostly because it's already Friday now and I just love linking up with Krysten, Lindsay and Charlotte to share some happiness.

Right now there is so much going on around me and I was expecting to be so stressed. But I am still just rolling with it and trying to stay as relaxed as possible. My body is tired and my head is mush, but I am here and that pretty happy news if you ask me. I'm hoping to squeeze in a nap between lunch and school pick ups. So I will get straight to it.

Having lunch with the little kids at school.

Koopa the tortoise is starting to come out of his shell.

Janet Evanovich. Although after 23 books, I'm a little bored with it.

Laughing so hard I cried over dinner conversations.

Watching Anthony give his best friend a giant stuffed dog (she is allergic to the real thing)

Planning a spring break road trip.

VitaTops. The blueberry ones are so good toasted.

Talking to my big brother every day.

Google Home. She's just got an answer for everything.

Snaps from David when I sent him to the store for me.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I just realized it's a three day weekend! What ever will we do with ourselves. David is off too. I think a trip to the park is needed. Or maybe something a little more. We will see.

Take the OREO Slam Dunk Challenge

This post is sponsored by OREO, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
**Sweepstakes Rules --- bit.ly/OREOSweepsRules **

After a rushed weekend and a hectic week, we all needed a little down time.  And by downtime, I mean lots of laughing, screaming and just good clean fun.  Well, not so much clean, but lots of fun!  And since the boys have been talking non stop about food challenges I decided to grab some OREO cookies and challenge them to a Slam Dunk Contest.

Challenges are taken very seriously around here.  So first we decided to play a game of OREO chicken.  We all dunked our cookies and tried to be the last one to pull our cookie back up before it fell into the depths of our milk.  I got scared my cookie was going to fall so I yanked it out and lost. Alex kept his in for 60 seconds and beat us all.

How do you dunk? Are you a slam dunker?  Or maybe a double dunker? Break and dunk or dunk and bite? In this family we do a little bit of everything.  I am a half dunker.  Dunk half, bite and repeat.  The boys go all in.  Right into the milk, fingers and all.

OREO cookies

For a second, I though about dunking this stack of OREO cookies, but then I figured I should play the safe route.  I pretty much failed all the challenges and this one probably would have gone the same way.

OREO fun

So head to your closest Walmart , pick up your favorite OREO cookies and join the OREO Slam Dunk Challenge. We are loving the OREO thins!  Don't let their thin look fool you!  They held up better than the rest in almost every challenge.  Which ever cookie or challenge you choose, just have fun doing it.  A little spilled milk is worth the memories!
