Menu Plan Monday

We had a good weekend. It was a reasonably uneventful weekend - which I think is a good thing. It started early, which is an even better thing.

Friday afternoon was my son's talent show at school. I took a half day vacation and we went to the talent show. Afterwards, we went to the movies (late matinee) to see The Lorax. We did the standard version, not the 3D version. It was a cute show. Since we ate so much popcorn, dinner was a grab what you want affair. There was some pizza, some cereal, and a waffle. I also made up two loaves of Light Rye Bread in the evening - a warm slice was part of my dinner.

Saturday we boiled the eggs for coloring, started some laundry and the kids went to an Easter event (not a hunt, a business to business trip around the downtown collecting eggs filled with candy and prizes). Saturday afternoon was full of errands. I got a lot of errands in, but otherwise, did little that I planned for a Saturday. Saturday evening was spent hanging out with friends - it was a nice relaxing evening. I had made the Asparagus Guacamole and it was just too yummy - I felt stuffed (which is a feeling I hate) by the time the evening was over.

Sunday we colored our eggs and I started to go through clothes drawers. I am doing a community kid's only garage sale in a few weeks and want to make sure that I take everything that I can. Normally, I would wait a few more weeks to go through so that I could be more thorough on the winter stuff, but in the interest of time, I figured I would at least pull out the stuff that is too small now and worry about the winter stuff later. We also started the process of 'refilling' the drawers and determining what we will need. Right now, things are looking well and little shopping will be required for summer clothes this year.

We also made up a batch of German Cream Puffs. My son had tried them at school during someone's book report on the country they chose. They turned out okay, but I think I might have to retry with a slight tweak to the puff recipe.

BLT (yum!)


Chicken Tacos

Baked Chicken and pasta




Breakfast is cereal or oatmeal each morning, although sometimes at school my daughter will have pancakes or french toast. This week is spring break week for my son, so lunches will be at home. Lunch for my husband and me is typically sandwiches, frozen meals or leftovers.
