Week 353 Menu

Happy Leap Day!  I didn't realize that we had an extra day this month until yesterday when I was checking my calendar.

I finally planned my giveaway to celebrate my #350th menu (even though it was three weeks ago).  Find the details here!  Be sure to enter, you have a great chance of winning!

How was your weekend?  I had a great one!  It was pretty special and very, very busy.  Saturday morning I hosted a Book of Mormon Readathon for the kids at church (ages 7 - 11) in my basement (which meant that I spent Friday deep cleaning my basement and scrubbing bird poop off of the windows...lovely, I know.)  It was the perfect way to start a busy Saturday, with super sweet kids, reading one of my favorite books.  So neat!  And it we had cinnamon rolls...yum.

We had three basketball games and one soccer game on Saturday and are almost done with basketball (two kids done and one more week for my daughter).  Now onto baseball and soccer!  I invented chocolate chip frosting accidentally, as I hurridly made cupcakes for my son's basketball team.  I love this whipped chocolate buttercream frosting, but I didn't melt the chocolate chips enough and just dumped them in the mixer.  The kids thought they were great.  

This weekend was Stake Conference at church, so 10 wards (congregations) met together and heard a visiting area church leader speak.  I had the privilege of playing the piano for a stake choir and also sang the closing song with a small group of ladies.  It was a pretty neat way to share my testimony...and I didn't get too nervous, pass out, or mess up really bad, so it was a success!

And the tooth fairy came to visit two nights in a row!  She didn't even forget, thank goodness!
I got out the camera to document two lost teeth and my kids decided that they wanted to take pictures of me.
Photographers are three years old and six years old and are very proud!  :)

This week is looking a little more calm than normal with four less basketball practices than normal.  

I have a few repeats from last week from nights that we ended up having leftovers instead of making dinner.  Yesterday I took a nap and made cookies instead of making dinner.  Here's the plan for this week:

Monday:  taco soup

Tuesday:  pulled pork (from freezer) sandwiches with coleslaw on top

Wednesday:  fried chicken sausage, potatoes, peppers, onions

Thursday:  honey-lime chicken enchiladas and black bean/quinoa enchiladas for me

Friday:  pizza


Sunday:  orange chicken, rice/quinoa, stirfried veggies

What about you?  What are you making this week?

  1. M: green chile chicken soup (in the crockpot already!) and rolls
    T: pizza pasta
    W: Blue and Gold Banquet; we're having Hawaiian Haystacks and I sure hope it all comes together okay (I am a very green Cub Scout Committee Chair so I feel somewhat responsible!)
    Th: taco salad
    F: maybe just an easy night? I need to decide for sure still
    Sa: ward dinner groups (families sign up to host and then invite over other families who help to bring the food)
    Su: two-timing pasta bake (alfredo+marinara)

    Even though I don't comment very often I have to tell you that you've inspired me to be a better menu planner. I have a piece of cardstock in a frame that I use with dry-erase markers (inspired by the menu board you and Julia have) -- so simple but it really does the trick. Just having it written down takes away so much of the trouble of making dinner.
