Happy Monday everyone!
This week feels totally different than last week. Last week we were scrambling to paint and replace trim, etc. in two of my kids rooms. My house was pretty much a mess and I was trying to get everything done enough to put the kids (and their stuff) back into their rooms before Grandma and Grandpa came to visit. We made it, but still have tons of trim touchup, caulking, etc. but the worst parts are done. I love how it looks.
I've posted a few pictures on instagram, but here's one of my daughter's room. We took out her carpet to reveal these perfect wood floors. They match the other wood floors in my house and are in perfect shape. I'm excited to go rug shopping. (And we still have baseboards to put up and closet doors and the list goes on and on...)
Yesterday was the quietest day that I've had in years. My whole family went with my inlaws to celebrate my husband's grandpa's 92nd birthday with him. I didn't go with them because we were having our first practice for our big children's presentation in church (that is in two weeks). So, I had the whole day all by myself. My house stayed clean. I didn't do any housework (since it was Sunday). I didn't have to make any food or do any dishes. It was very relaxing and quiet and nice to just be me. I was glad when my family came home though.
We are lucky and get to have my father-in-law staying with us this week. We have our regular busy schedule, so I thought I'd better menu plan so we don't end up with oatmeal for dinner (although he'd be totally cool with that).
So, here's the plan...
Monday: honey balsamic BBQ chicken sandwiches, coleslaw, strawberries
Tuesday: grilled Greek chicken, grilled veggies, rosemary flatbread, tzatsiki sauce
Wednesday: salisbury steak meatballs, egg noodles, veggies
Thursday: individual chicken pot pies, big green salad
Friday: orange chicken (my kids favorite meal OF ALL time), rice and/or quinoa, broccoli
Saturday: lasagna, macaroni grill rosemary bread
Sunday: lime and coconut chicken, twice baked potatoes
All righty...that's my plan. What about you? What are you having this week for dinner? Feel free to share. I love it when you do.
