Week 351 Menu

Hi everyone!  I found out last week that our week goes SO much better when I plan and post my menu on Mondays.  Posting it on the blog makes me actually follow through and completely plan for the week...unlike last week when I didn't plan well.  (I posted on Saturday night about my week.)

Anyway...Hope you have all had a great President's Day!  I slept in a little, made crepes for my kids for breakfast, went running, went grocery shopping and went to the park with my kiddos.  

Did you have a great Valentine's Day?  I kind of simplified this year.  Usually I hang up a few heart decorations, but this year I just got out our heart shaped plates, made heart shaped french toast (on my daughter's super yummy, fluffy whole wheat bread) and gave my kids chocolate that they ate right after breakfast.  I made roast beef, roasted veggies, and one hour rolls for dinner, but we really loved chocolate fudge molten lava cakes that we had for dessert with a scoop of ice cream.  Yum!

Thursday night my boys helped get their valentine's ready to take to school on Friday.  I didn't want to do anything extravagant (or expensive) or time consuming.   And my 4th grade son didn't want me to do anything that might be embarrasing and too "valentiney".  So, we found this smartypants idea.  I tweeked the printable a bit, so I printed out six pants per page and changed the fonts to a more "masculine" font.  My boys loved it and I might just make these every year.  Super easy and cheap and creative!  {Side note - my 4th grader came home with 12 fun dips!  Seriously...that's a few too many.}

This week is another full week of lots of things every night, but I'm determined to actually make dinner every night, except tonight we're having leftovers.

Monday:  leftover roast beef from yesterday on sandwiches

Tuesday:  pesto marinated chicken alfredo with butternut squash (from my garden)

Wednesday:  potstickers and fried rice

Thursday:  easy night

Friday:  baked potato soup

Saturday:  teriyaki grilled salmon, quinoa, spinach salad

Sunday:  chicken fajita salad

All righty....I have a giveaway planned that hopefully I'll post about tomorrow when my kids are back at school.  I'm super excited about this and since my blog has a smaller audience you have a super good chance of winning!  Stay tuned!  

What are you making this week?  If you menu plan, I'd love to hear.  And if you don't menu plan, you should let me know how you do it.  I am horrible at making up dinner ideas on the fly.
