Menu Plan Monday
I strayed quite a bit last week from my menu plan! Cravings would kick in and I was useless to resist! Wednesday I had planned on the Chicken Strips I think, but I really wanted Baked Potato soup. So I had seen several recipes on it, and a friend of mine had given me a quick run down of how she made hers. I combined the recipes, added my own touches and came up with a really tasty soup, that will probably be a regular on our menus! I did eventually make the Sesame Chicken Strips yesterday, they were great! Only my picky oldest wouldn't touch them, which was as to be expected. So he just ate lots of rice! And the Confetti Spaghetti was a huge hit as well! I would add a little more spice to both recipes, but thats just because anything even slightly bland tends to annoy me right now!
Most of this week will be from last week, that we just didn't get to!
Monday:grilled cheese and tomato soup (Duty Day)
Tuesday: Amish Meatloaf with Mashed Potato and salad
Wednesday: Chicken Pesto Pasta and Garlic Bread
Thursday: Sausage with Datil Dew Sauce and oven roasted seasoned red potatoes
Friday: grilled chicken sandwiches with vermont white cheddar , peaches
Saturday: Pizza cheese and a pepperoni, sausage, and pineapple
I had another ultrasound on Friday, everything looks great! Little one is growing and I am excited for August. Which I know is a long way off. But time seems to be moving quickly and I know it will be here before I know it!
My vacuum cleaner of 6 years finally bit the dust Friday as well. The rotator brush on the bottom stopped spinning and it just didn't suck the way it used to. So Sunday we went to Target! I, of course, wanted a Dyson, but just couldn't justify spending $500 on a vacuum cleaner. Yeah, yeah, I know it will never lose its suction, but for that much I should have someone who will come and vacuum for me! I had put aside about$200 for a new vacuum, but found my second choice for much less. Oddly enough I saw it online at Walmart for a whole lot more. Thats right everyone, Target ROCKS!! Heres a pic of my new vacuum!
The little yellow thing on the side is a duster, it has a telescopic pole thingy and after you dust, you stick it in the holder for it, flip a switch and it SUCKS all the dust off of it! I am so excited about it. I already vacuumed my dining room area, and it works amazingly!
I also got to have a girls night out Friday night with my friend Kiki, we went and got pedicures. I really needed the pampering. She brought my boys the cutest thing ever! And they have been playing with it since Friday.
So anyways, if you participated in Menu Plan Monday, let me know!
