Menu Plan 6•1•20

Happy Monday Everyone.  It is our last week of school here and we are beyond ready for it.  Bring on Summer Break.  We are looking forward to late nights and sleeping in.  Swimming and S'mores.  Ohhh, I can't wait. 

Menu Monday

School might be out soon and our mornings at the table writing and doing school work are coming to a close but there is one thing that isn't going to change around here.  The fact that these boys are always hungry.  The menu planning continues.  This weeks menu includes a few tried and true and a little something new.

Menu Plan 5•25•20

Happy Monday Everyone.  I was up at the crack of dawn excited for this last full week of school.  And then realized its a holiday.  So I let our new foster puppy out (more one him later), let the neighbors dogs out, and am back home working on our menu for the week while the guys all sleep in.  I was a total slacker this weekend and am still putting together my grocery list.

Hope Whispers Menu Plan

This weeks menu isn't anything special.  Figured the less time in the kitchen, the more time we had to make sure we got a solid week of school in.  We need to finish strong.  These boys have been troopers though this whole distance learning thing.  There is talk of it being an option for next year and both boys said they would rather go back to school.  Anthony LOVES High School and Alex is excited about Middle School.  Hopefully we have some sort of plan before the end of summer.  Anyways, back to food.  He is the menu for the week.

Menu Plan 5•18•20

So about that menu... Im a little late this week.  Yesterday was a big school heavy week and then I had to run to the store after David got home.  By the time I got back and had time to sit down it was to late.  So here I am a day late, with the day almost gone again and I just realized I hadn't posted my menu for the week.  Instead of just saying "oh well!" like I would usually do, Im determined to get back to this being my space and posting on a more regular basis.  Even if its just for me.


We went into the store with a list and there was next to nothing for meat left so I had to wing it and this week Im just making what I can with what I found.  Id like to think its still a decent menu.  I mean, as long as there is dinner every night right?  So heres the line up.

Packages, Planting and Perfectly Roasted Marshmallows

Its FRIDAY!  I was a little thrown off because David is coming off night shifts so he was off today.  I pretty much thought it was Saturday for most of the day.   And now that the day is winding down I have a few minutes to sit and reflect on yet another week.


Today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Here are a few things that made my list this week!

Menu Plan 5•11•20

Ok Guys.  Its a new week.  Who is ready for it?  Id like to think I am but Im sure life will throw me some kind of curve call to knock me off my game.  And when it does, I will do my best to just roll with it.

Menu Plan Monday

We had a very chill weekend.  Got all our errands done on Saturday so that yesterday all we had to worry about Sunday was the weather.  And it turned out to be another amazing day. The best weekend weather we have had in a while.  We snacked on lumpia all weekend.  David grilled burgers Saturday. and took care of dinner Sunday too.  Yay for no cooking.  I'll be back in the kitchen today.  But I really did appreciate that little break! This weeks menu is done.  And there is a little of everything.  Check it out!

Curls, Coffee and Chicken Pot Pie

Well, this week blew though like a hurricane.  For us anyway.  Probably because I cleared out so much stuff in the garage and things from around the house that were just taking up space.  So much so that now the boys are just pointing to things and asking me if Im getting rid of that too!  Probably should slow down before there is nothing left.


But I can breath easier now.  I can also get in the car with out hitting a pile of bags in the garage.  I can also see the treadmill again.  I set walking everyday as a goal, but totally failed because there were bags and boxes on the treadmill.  Don't judge.  Its cleared and I will get back to it.  As soon as my feet start hurting from standing on the hard garage floor for two days.  Flat feet problems.  Anyways.
