Week 35 Menu and Kitchen Tip #3 - Cutting Melons

Hi everyone! We just got home from a nice week and half vacation visiting family and friends, shopping, going to my hubby's graduation, etc. etc. etc. We had a good time, but it's nice to be home. This morning as I stared at my empty fridge my mind was pretty empty too of ideas of what to make this week. We have a busy week, so this is what I came up with:

Monday: chicken chimichangas (or as today gets later, cereal starts sounding better and better, is that bad?)

Tuesday: spaghetti and turkey meatballs

Wednesday: I was going to make Swedish meatballs, but my grocery store didn't have any ground pork, so this day is TBD.

Thursday: breakfast

Friday: pizza of some kind

Saturday: easy night, maybe grill something

Sunday: white chili

So, what are you making this week? Post your menus in the comment area.


I bought a watermelon this morning on my grocery shopping trip. I don't buy watermelon very often since my hubby is allergic and my kids don't eat much of it. It sounded like a great healthy, light snack (which I need more of as I get bigger and bigger with my pregnancy). Last summer Sandi, my cousin-in-law (?) showed me this great way of cutting melons. So I thought I'd share. It works with cantaloupe or watermelon.

Step 1. Wash your watermelon. Get out your cutting board and knife.Step 2. Cut watermelon in half. Set one half on cutting board cut side down.Step 3. Cut off end of watermelon.Step 4. Slice rind off starting at the top.
Step 5. Continue around melon cutting all the rind off.Step 6. Slice.
Step 7. Cut into pieces and start snacking!
