Menu Plan Monday: April 20th

Remember last week how I was so excited to get back in my kitchen.  Yeah, by Tuesday, I was done.  I came down with this nasty cold.  That we were worried was the flu, but nope.  Just a God awful cold and a lingering cough that is driving me craaaazy!

That said, I didn't do much cooking last week.  So this week hopefully thing will be better.  Fingers crossed.  I have a feeling this week is going to be just as crazy.  We have a week day birthday party, STARR tests and class parties at school.  And Chico the Chihuahua was attacked and is pretty roughed up so there's that.  Never a dull moment around here!  But there is always food.

The Southwest Wraps are pretty regular around here.  Steak this week.

Spaghetti and salads

Lemon pepper turkey, brown rice and asparagus

Birthday Party


Lumpia and long rice

Fend for yourself / Leftovers

Monster Meatloaf, potatoes and veggies

The boys have been bottomless pits lately.  Like a never ending hunger.  The fruit bowl is empty by Wednesday!  So if anyone has any good snack recipes, I would love to try them!  We make these Energy Balls a lot.  Even David loves them.

Guess what day it is??

One hint:  Its not Hump Day!


Its National Donate Life Blue & Green Day.  

It feels like every April I set out to share so much but something always comes up.  Every.  Single. Time.  But I have a great reason for one of the weeks.  I flew out to surprise my older brother at his homecoming. And then of course I came back and after 2 days I got sick. I'm feeling a little better today and I know my body can't fight off the germs as well anymore. That combined with a little exhaustion from traveling, I knew it was bound to happen.  But it was beyond worth it, to get to see him come home to his family and to be a part of that.  

And while its not the greatest shot (I had planned on getting something special and failed) I did show my support today too!! 

I started this post before noon.  I'm about to hit publish and its almost 11pm.  Yeah, TGIF!!

Wordless Wednesday: Welcome Home Brother!

So incredibly proud of the man you have become.  This trip has proven that even if we go weeks without talking and months without seeing each other, you are still one of my best friends!
