Menu Plan Monday

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. For me, it was a busy Saturday, followed by a relaxing Sunday. Not everything went according to plan, but it was still good.

Saturday was a sports day. We started in the morning with two back to back soccer games, which we learned this year are on opposite sides of the soccer park. It meant that I had to miss more of my son's game to get my daughter to her game on time. Then, there was a T-ball practice for my husband and daughter, while my son and I stopped at the grocery store. We headed home just in time for my son to put on his baseball uniform for his game. When we came home from the game, we had to get everything ready for a picnic and game night. A great time was had by all, but I stayed up too late.

Sunday was a much quieter day. I got some wonderful homemade gifts from the kids and spent the afternoon first playing games in the backyard - wiffle ball and then Spud, which I haven't played since probably elementary school and then, watching Hop with my daughter. A quick run to Kohl's to use my 30% discount and then dinner at Chipotle. Originally, we were going to have grilled fish for dinner but my husband asked about us going out for Mother's Day. Unfortunately, time got away from us and we decided that leaving town for dinner wasn't the best choice, leaving us with little choice. Our favorite local Mexican restaurant had a wait and at that hour of the evening, we decided to skip it. I enjoy Chipotle, so it was an okay back-up, just hadn't envisioned 'dinner out' being carry out Chipotle.

TBD - Dinner with Friends

Breakfast is cereal or oatmeal each morning, although sometimes at school my daughter will have pancakes or french toast. For my son, lunch is either the menu item at school or a packed lunch with some type of sandwich. Lunch for my husband and me is typically sandwiches, frozen meals or leftovers.
