Menu Plan Monday - Week of April 22nd
We've certainly been busy around here. Last week was the first week in a while when Jack was feeling back to normal after all this teething madness and I wasn't sick. It was nice to have a normal(ish) week! We had a day where Jack and I ran errands (including to a butcher shop to pick up some local grass-fed ground beef for $1.99/lb - steal!) and a day where we played with friends.
The weekend was also busy. Saturday, I grocery shopped and ran to the library earlier in the day, then we had friends over for some pizza and Jack got to play with his little friend Carter that evening.
Sunday, Mark made us a nice pancake breakfast and then he picked up a sandbox for Jack while I did some laundry and later that evening we went out to my parents' house to visit with family and eat dinner. It was Jack's bedtime by the time we got home and after folding some laundry Mark and I finished up season 2 of Downton Abbey. We surprisingly like it even though I tend to have trouble with British-y shows.
Now Jack seems to be dealing with a little bit of a cold. Considering he made it through Winter without any illness I'll take a little runny nose in Spring!
Here's what we're eating this week:
Sunday: At parents' house
Monday: Chicken and Noodles (from the freezer) over Mashed Potatoes
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken with Brown Rice and Green Beans
Wednesday: Meatball Subs with Roasted Cauliflower
Thursday: Grilled Burgers on Homemade Buns with Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Friday: Creamy Chicken with Black Beans and Corn (CrockPot) over Cilantro-Lime Rice with Chips and Salsa
