Week 307 Menu and a new home!

Hi guys!  Well, we finally made it to the end of our moving adventure.  We've been in transition since the week of Thanksgiving. It's been a great couple of months, but a little crazy and far from normal and routine.  My favorite part was being able to spend time with so many of our favorite people.

We closed on our new home last week and I thought I'd take a quick break from the boxes this morning to post.  I'm loving our new home.  It's has lots of extra space, a huge yard, a big hill behind the house, beautiful view especially at night, and seems to be in a great neighborhood.

It's been fun to explore our new town.  I don't have to use Google Maps everywhere I go anymore.  We have beautiful rivers, farmland, close shopping and not too much traffic.  Someone asked me if I felt like I'd moved to Mayberry...little did she know where I just moved from or where I grew up!

I've met lots of great people and made some friends.  We are all missing our old friends like crazy, but hopefully the hardest times are behind us now that everyone has already started school, scouts, activity days, basketball, etc.

All right..the boxes are calling my name.  Menu time...

Monday:  we had lasagna with our favorite french bread and homemade freezer jam (so glad that Costco carries raspberries)

Tuesday:  we had honey lime enchiladas with Sandy's famous salsa on top

Wednesday:  we had marinated steak and rice

Thursday:  chicken angelo

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday:  homemade chicken noodle soup

Sunday:  perfect pot roast, potatoes, etc.

All righty...what have you been making lately?  I'd love to hear your menu ideas.

P.S.  Since things have been so busy, I've been posting much more on Instagram than I have on Facebook or here.

  1. Sigh. Cameron has been begging for them, so we are having... hot dogs (shudder) for dinner tonight. We make pizza on Friday. I need something healthy, yet delicious for Saturday!

  2. Your new home looks great. Four square in the basement! My boys would love that.

    We had baked potato soup and homemade rolls last night (it was delicious, even if my kids don't love it). The night before was spaghetti, because I hadn't really planned ahead, and it's quick and easy! Monday was pancakes and French toast. Sunday we had breadsticks with spinach-tortellini in lemon sauce (from Our Best Bites) (I made this on Saturday and just threw it the oven on Sunday). Saturday was Hawaiian meatballs.

    Tonight I think I'm just doing pizza!
