Menu Monday and Some Miscellany

Menu Monday

Here is the plan for this week:

  • Monday – Burgers on the grill
  • Tuesday – Apple Pancakes
  • Wednesday – Big Daddy’s Special Quesadillas
  • Thursday – Pizza
  • Friday – ummm….
  • Saturday – Orange Chicken
  • Sunday – Roast and Yorkshire Pudding…I know SHOCKING!!

I forgot that it was National Pancake Day on Tuesday. I had to come back and modify my menu for this week.


And now for a little Miscellany…

1. So last week I felt like my life tumbled a little out of control. Apparently my house felt it also. I noticed that EVERY picture on my collage wall was crooked.


That is something I can definitely fix.


2. My kiddos have decided that if there isn’t school on Monday then Sunday night is family room sleep-over time. So hello President’s Day…


And since they don’t expect Mom and Dad to join the fun it works for me.

This morning I was greeted by quite the fancy furniture fort.


3. I used to deal with stress by not eating…I am over that. I have gained 6 lbs in the last week. Grrr………..

4. I don’t work with the Cub Scouts anymore. I totally have mixed emotions. Now I am going to rock the hot librarian look on Sundays. Is that appropriate?!?


  1. I love the fort!
    and the weekly menu looks really yummy as always.

    Love you

  2. Looks like you are coping well.
    I love the idea of the kids rolling out all over the floor for a family room sleep over. The fort building looks like loads of fun, that's great.

  3. Oh ya, the weight gain is probably just water weight, take a water pill. {Even if it isn't water bloating, the dropping of a couple of pounds does wonders for the psyche}

  4. Do I have to cook again this week?

    Oh forts. So much fun when you're a kid. So much not when you're the adult.

    Damn that stress and weight. I hate it. Want me to sympathy eat with you?

  5. Sounds like you've got some yummy dinners lined up. Mexican is my favorite comfort food!

    I hope Big Daddy gets some hot prospects this week and your visit to the land of stress will be short.

  6. I love family room sleep-over time! So fun!

  7. Wow that is quite the party you had! haha. You're a good Mama. I have never made "ummm" before. Let me know how that turns out. ;) I think it is okay to say "hot" librarian....but that is only because I am one too! Haha.

    I have something for you on my blog.

  8. ooh ive always wanted to work in the library. your kids are so cute..
