Menu Plan Monday
Do I bother?? Really? Last week was a total write off, almost. But I have to remember we are in renos and I didn't clue in that my kitchen was in the middle of it last week. So access to my kitchen for cooking was limited at times.
This week, however, I have high hopes!! Really!
Monday - spaghetti and meatballs. moved from last week and an easy one
Tuesday - I will try the Curry Lentil soup this week as I didn't get it made last week. I'll have it with naan and cut up veg
Wednesday - Chicken. Something in the crockpot I think...Not sure yet
Thursday - Taco Salad. I have some taco meat in the freezer so this should be an easy one
Friday - Greek Baked Chicken with Rice and Salad
Saturday and Sunday - The Husband and I might be taking off for two nights so nothing planned. If we stay it will be easy meals, cereal and pancakes
I have been making more of an effort to enjoy time with my kids and not feel the never ending pressure of keeping a spotless house. We took time to take our kids to the aquarium this weekend, it was raining hard on Saturday morning, but we decided to head out anyway as rain is common here. Fingers crossed it meant less people. We had a great time and by the time we got to the aquarium it was a drizzle. Gotta love the west coast weather. Here are a few pics of our fun...oh and bonus points for me as I packed a lunch so the only cost was for my husband and I and the kids are still free :)
