Week 343 Menu

Happy Monday everyone!  December is flying by too fast!  I wish that time would pause so I could catch up and then more fully enjoy this beautiful month.  So many wonderful things!  

Last weekend was kind of our concert, rehearsal, lesson, recital, etc. week.  It was full of beautiful music.  It was fun to be able to hear my daughter play the piano and flute at her recitals and concerts.  She also got to sing in a children's choir, while I sang in a women's choir.  I've loved learning beautiful music and practicing it for the last few months.  So grateful for the gift of music! 
One year ago today was the last time I was in New Mexico!  One year ago today we packed up our van and headed to our new home in Washington {via Disneyland and Grandma's house in Utah}.  One year has gone by so fast and it doesn't seem like it's been that long.  I'm just so grateful for good friends in so many different places and so many different ways to keep in touch.  

This week I have to get serious about Christmas shopping.  I haven't done hardly any so far!  And my little guy is turning 3 this week!  He wants a train cake like this one that I made for my last three year birthday party.  

I did pretty bad at actually making dinner last week.  I made it a few times, but we ate a lot of pizza (half of it was homemade).  This week I will do better...maybe.  Menu time:

Monday:  baked chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, one hour rolls (my sister made some yummy stuffing for Thanksgiving, but I want to make some too.  Plus I have extra stuffing bread cubes that I need to use up.)

Tuesday: grilled 7 up chicken, sweet potato and regular potato baked fries, green salad

Wednesday: easy night

Thursday: spaghetti (noodles for the kiddos, spaghetti squash for me), one hour breadsticks

Friday: navajo tacos (my daughter's request, because she said they're SOOO good!)

Saturday: tinfoil dinners

Sunday: family's choice, so TBD

All righty...Have a great week!  I hope it's filled with lots of beautiful music, wonderful friends and yummy food (mixed with school, work, homework, etc.).  I  ♥ Christmas time!
