Hi friends! Happy Monday! Can you believe it's the 4th of July this week? The summer is flying by.
We have our first wildfire burning close enough that we have to smell and see the smoke. Brings back bad memories of the summer three years ago when we had a fire burning close enough to our little town that we had to evacuate and then breathe smoke for months afterward. Ugh.
Do you have fun plans for the 4th of July? I got to play patriotic hymns on the organ at church yesterday. Playing the Star Spangled Banner with the pedals is easier this year than it was last year. Kind of fun!
Here's a happy thing...my little baby guy just started playing with cars and trains. I'm so happy! He hasn't really played with toys very much in his life. He just toddles around and plays with big people stuff. He also discovered baby dolls too. Super cute.
If you're feeling crazy today, will you click on one of the ads on the sidebar of my blog? I feel kind of silly posting about this. I obviously don't blog to make money and I make a minuscule amount each day (like seriously a few cents), but with ad clicks I get a little more, like $0.50 per click. I know ads are really annoying, but I do like how the ads know what you've been searching, so my ads are usually for The Children's Place or something that I've bought recently on Amazon. Anyway...I'd love to have a giveaway for my #300th menu, so we'll see if some ad clicks add up. Thanks friends!
My hubby was on travel for a few days last week, so I didn't stick to my menu very well. The kids requested puffed oven pancakes for dinner one night and orange chicken for dinner another night. This week has a few repeats from last week.
Monday: chicken fajitas
Tuesday: crockpot fauxtisserie chicken and fingerling potatoes
Wednesday: broiled parmesan tilapia, simple orzo pilaf
Thursday: chicken tetrazinni
Friday: 4th of July! we'll grill something
Saturday: sesame chicken salad
Sunday: crockpot ham, potato casserole, one hour rolls, salad
Hopefully I'll finish my last post about our trip to San Diego. Click here for part one.
Have a great week friends! I'd love to hear what you're planning for dinner this week or for your 4th of July BBQ. Feel free to share.
