Menu Plan Monday

What a busy few weeks we have had! Two weeks ago, we took some time to head out to Geauga Lake for the day. It was a blast, except I got burnt. It figures - I spend my day making sure everyone applies and reapplies their sunscreen and somehow, when I did my back with the spray, I must have missed some areas and I never bothered to reapply. I'm peeling now. This past weekend was filled with family fun. We took a long weekend, enjoyed lunch with my brother and his family, as well as my parents on Friday. Went to a pool party at my Aunt's house, thrown by my cousin who was in town from NYC. Then, on Saturday, we went to a family wedding (Dad's side) and had a great time. My daughter couldn't get enough of dancing. Then, on Sunday, we had a family picnic (Mom's side) at the community park. Again, the kids had a great time playing with cousins and extended family and enjoying a picnic at the park.

Weeknights have been filled with sports and meetings for the past two weeks. Dinner planning has fallen by the wayside and my lack of creativity when I don't plan is awful. This week, I have planned my menu and that should at least make the evenings go a little smoother.

Turkey is on our menu a few times again this week - Turkey Roast on Tuesday, Turkey Sausage on Wednesday and ground turkey in our taco meat on Friday.

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me.
