Menu Monday

Monday - Fast Food
Tuesday - Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole
Wednesday - Hot Dogs, Mac & Cheese
Thursday - Chicken & Pepper stir-fry, Rice, Egg Rolls
Friday - Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, veggies
Saturday - Pizza (homemade or frozen)
Sunday - Labor Day Party with Family

This weekend is Labor Day so Sunday we'll be visiting with my family. Our big meal will be at lunch but there will either be more food for dinner or we will be on the road heading home and we'll just pick something up. I have got to stock my freezer with some more easy to prepare meals - especially things that don't need to thaw first! Pretty much the only meat in my freezer is beef from my uncle's cow. But things involving ground beef just don't sound all that great and things involving steak take too much effort right now.

Menu Monday (on Tuesday)

Monday - Leftovers (because we have ton of stuff from last week to finish up)
Tuesday - Frozen Casserole (yay freezer meals!)
Wednesday - Baked Pasta
Thursday - Sandwiches, Chips, Cottage Cheese, Applesauce
Friday - Barbacoa Beef
Saturday - Dinner @ my mom's
Sunday - Chicken, Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy

The name of the game is EASY this week. I'm not even cooking at all 2 night. And sandwiches barely count as cooking (although they may be grilled cheese).

I actually had this mostly done on Sunday, I just couldn't figure out WHAT to eat on Friday.

And...I'm Back...

That was a little break...for (most of June and) the entire month of July (and half of August)!

Summer has been all about being lazy this year. I haven't worked on Project Life since the middle of June. My summer fun list didn't really happen.

Claire took four weeks worth of swimming lessons. She might have learned something. She didn't drown. And I didn't go insane.

We took a 10 day vacation to Colorado. It ended up including a lovely visit to an ER because Claire came down with a cold AND two ear infections AND a little bit of altitude sickness. Actually, by the end of the trip, we had all come down with the cold. My brother & dad started it though.

We did not use our swim pass nearly enough. But it also wasn't in the upper 90s most days. Compared to last summer, this summer has been lovely.

We found out we're going to have another baby. I thought I'd just slide that in real quick like you wouldn't notice. Due in January a whole 6 days after Claire's birthday. Let's just hope they don't have the same birthday.

Apparently being pregnant makes me tired. And makes any cold that I get turn into a nasty multiple week cough. It is great fun.

Both kiddos have started school. Claire is in Pre-K again. Anaya is in 8th grade! Seriously, when did she get so old?!?
