Menu Plan Monday

What a beautiful (and busy) weekend! The sun was shining. The only rain that fell fell while I was in bed or just getting out of it. We had friends over for a game night on Friday and spent some time hanging out on the deck. We played soccer and baseball, non-stop Saturday morning into the afternoon. We bought the plants for our garden and our flower bed and then planted them. The kids played outside all afternoon on Sunday - water gun battles and Slip'n Slide playing. We grilled out. I bought corn on the cob and watermelon. It really felt like summer could be coming.

I fit in a quick trip to the grocery store on Sunday to pick up the stuff we needed for the week. I was able to get a deal on a value pack of pork chops and repacked them into three meals - making each under $3. I picked up some steaks which we grilled last night.

This is the last week of school for my son. As such, he got to choose the Friday night dinner. I can't believe that he is almost done with the second grade. Where does the time go?

Grilled Steaks and Baked Potatoes

Chicken Patty Sandwiches


Stuffed Pepper Casserole


Turkey Roast and Mashed Potatoes

Memorial Day Picnicking

Breakfast is generally cereal or oatmeal for everyone - we just eat it at different places. Lunch during the week is either the lunch available at school or is packed - PBJ or sandwiches for my son, leftovers for me, leftovers or microwave meals for my husband.
