Week 404 Menu

Hi all!  I thought I'd put off putting away my groceries a little longer, but actually posting my menu this week.  I just posted what we ACTUALLY ate last week.  It was a pretty yummy week, so check it out if you need some ideas.  

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine was great...full of good intentions, sweet hand-drawn cards and homemade gifts, lots of hugs and people wishing "Happy Mother's Day."  

Love these kiddos...crazy as they are.  (This wasn't yesterday...because I didn't make my kids take an obligatory Mother's Day picture...didn't want to push my luck.  Haha!)  This was last week when we ate al fresco for the first time this year.  

Menu planning time:

Monday:  we're having leftovers (so much good food in my fridge -- see THIS POST to see what we ate last week)


Wednesday:  French Dip

Thursday:  Salmon

Friday:  Grilled Flatbread Pizza

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  TBD - going to let my family pick, most likely grill something

That's what we're having this week.  What about you?  What are you having this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!

Week 403 Menu: What we ACTUALLY ate

Hi there!  Just noticed that I haven't posted AT ALL in May and it's already halfway over.  The first week of May my daughter and I went on the best mother-daughter trip to see some of our favorite people from New Mexico, whom we haven't seen since we moved over two years ago.  I went to BYU Women's Conference and my daughter and her friend hung out and got spoiled by grandparents.  

Last week we were getting back into the groove of things after being gone.  I actually made dinner almost every night, but never posted my menu, so I thought I should do it now...you know, because if I don't blog about it, then it's like it never happened.  :)

Monday:  we had breakfast burritos with homemade salsa

Tuesday:  we had sandwiches

Wednesday:  we had grilled pork chops, orzo pilaf, broccoli and fruit

Thursday:  we had turkey quinoa taco skillet (I love to eat this for lunches in taco salad form!!!)

Friday:  my family had BBQ chicken tinfoil dinners and I had the yummiest pesto margherita chicken  at Twig's with some friends at a baby shower/dinner out.  

Saturday:  pizza - I got my favorite thin crust veggie since it was practically Mother's day

Sunday:  my family helped with dinner - 7up grilled chicken, potato salad (w/out eggs since I'm a hater), my daughter made salsa, veggies, fruit and to-die-for lemon brownies

What about you?  Do you remember what you ate last week?  It's a great brain exercise to try to remember...for me at least.  :)

Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.

Cedar-Planked Teriyaki Grilled Salmon

Cedar-planked teriyaki grilled salmon is my pickiest eater's favorite meal!  He requested it for his 7th birthday last summer.  And just this last Sunday he told his teacher at church that it was his favorite healthy food.  


My family doesn't really love seafood, probably because I didn't eat much of it growing up because I "didn't like it."  I still can't stand shrimp (unless it's so breaded and fried that you can't tell it's shrimp) and I've never eaten lobster or scallops.  We are slowly branching out beyond our favorite Broiled Parmesan Tilapia into other fish, like salmon.  I've been making this recipe for two years now and every one loves it.

Week 402 Menu: The Dr Says...

PHOTO:  View from my sun-rise run along the canal the other morning.
The sun was amazingly bright.  I shared more about it here on my OTHER instagram account @jennysharesjoy.)

Happy Monday!  Nothing like a doctor appointment first thing on Monday to start the week out on a good foot.  I switched doctors and had a great visit with my new one, actually she is a nurse practitioner, but she really knows her stuff.  I loved that she listened to my whole health history (and my family's too) and answered all my questions and didn't make me feel rushed at all.

Week 401 Menu


Hello there!  Happy Wednesday!  I'm finally getting around to planning my menu for the week.  Last weekend was filled with lots of food and lots of food planning.  

Friday we fed the missionaries and three of my husband's co-workers (+ a wife).  We had a nice 
hamburger, hot dog BBQ and topped it off with fresh chocolate pudding cookies (so good!)
