Have you missed me?
I took a little mini vacation this past weekend. Mommies on the loose in the North Georgia mountains… It was very restful and lots of fun.
I wanted to wish a very special welcome to you ladies who are visiting my blog from the retreat! I was so flattered to hear this weekend how much you enjoy reading my blog! And I thought I was just talking to myself all this time. 🙂
But today, I’m back to the real world of school lunches, carpools, after-school activities and planning my family’s meals for the week.
I don’t not want to do this, but it sure was nice to have a break for a couple days and only worry about whether or not I would rather nap, read, or scrapbook. 🙂
This week is SuperMan’s birthday week. I have asked him a few times if he has any special requests, but he keeps telling me no. SO, the menu may change if he thinks of something, but at this point, here’s what I have planned:
- Homemade Chicken Nuggets (this is becoming my Monday standby as it’s a busy after-school day)
- Tacos/Burritos (this one is Little Bit’s special request)
- Salmon croquettes and grits
- Asian Beef with Noodles (this is an old Weight Watchers Recipe I love)
- Slow Cooker Crock Pot Chicken
I’m also cooking for a friend and her family this weekend. She is having surgery on Friday so a few of us are going to provide the family with meals so they don’t have to worry about what to eat or cooking – they can focus on taking care of their Mama while she recovers. I’m thinking I will either cook my great-grandma’s Sausage Rice Casserole recipe or the chicken w/ rotel casserole I made for my family (and it was such a great hit) a few weeks ago. And, of course, there will be a cake of some sort involved. 🙂
