Week 378 Menu: House Reno Update and more

It's officially fall, I guess.  Today is actually chilly and I'm enjoying wearing a hoodie.  I'll be honest and say that I would love to live somewhere where it never gets really cold and snows.  I love being warm.  :)

Anyway...if you follow me on Instagram you will have noticed that we've been doing some home reno projects.  I had good intentions of posting my menu last week, but I was painting like crazy and our dinners were pretty thrown together at the last minute.  This week will be much better.  My family is much happier when I have an answer for them when they ask what is for dinner.
My husband and I are working on painting and replacing trim, doors, etc. in two of our kids rooms.  We worked on another bedroom in August, but real life was too busy to do much reno work.  We're getting rid of the builders beige walls and ceiling and all the honey oak trim and doors.  We're replacing it with white ceilings, gray walls, tall white baseboards, new white 2 panel doors and pretty white craftsman trim.  It is tons and tons and tons of painting (my husband builds and I paint), but it looks so great!

This Sunday was a nice break from working on the house.  We got to stay at home and watch General Conference on TV instead of going to our regular meetings.
It was my favorite day for lots of reasons:  truly a day of rest, day with my family, I made pumpkin granola and cinnamon rolls, and the talks gave me much needed guidance and inspiration.  I especially loved these this talk about finding joy (found here).

Ok, menu time and then I've got to go tackle some ceiling and wall painting (the fun part!!!).

Monday:  we had turkey meatball sandwiches (Costco torta rolls, my favorite turkey meatballs, spaghetti sauce and a slice of swiss cheese)

Tuesday: chicken gnocchi soup and fresh whole wheat bread

Wednesday:  beef enchiladas

Thursday: grilled Greek chicken and tsatziki sauce, grilled flatbread and veggies

Friday:  steak and/or chicken stirfry

Saturday: something with a pork roast (to be determined I guess)

Sunday: leftovers

What about you?  How was your weekend?  Do you have any home projects going on?  What are you eating this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!
