Well, howdy there!
Been a long time, hasn’t it?
It was a crazy whirlwind summer for us. In spite of the fact that we were uprooted and transplanted to a tropical rain forest in which it rained every.single.day. we had a very nice summer.
The girls started school last week –
Big Girl is in 7th grade. I can hardly believe she is so big!
Little Bit started 4th grade. When I took her to school, she didn’t want me to walk her in – she just hopped out in the carpool line and didn’t even look back. My heart lurched a little, but I was so proud of her bravery and happy that she was comfortable enough to go on in without Mommy holding her hand.
After taking almost every Friday off for the past month (plus a few weeks) and a week here and there to play with the girls, I’m back working a “normal” schedule again. That means I’m also back to managing our family schedule a little bit more closely, including meal planning – and that means it’s
Here’s what’s cookin’ at our house this week:
|Monday: Beef Stew (crock pot recipe) with some crusty homemade bread||Friday: Chicken Noodle Casserole (this is a new crock pot recipe I want to try)|
|Tuesday: Asian Chicken Stir Fry||Saturday: TBD|
|Wednesday: Mexican Potato Casserole (prep ahead & bake recipe)
(Tacos for the kids)
|Sunday: “Lunch on the Lawn” at church (picnic)
and dinner with our Small Group – SuperMan’s absolutely awesome Brunswick Stew, homemade bread and cole slaw
|Thursday: Bourbon Street Chicken (crock pot recipe) and rice w/ steamed broccoli||I’m also nibbling on some of this bean salad for lunch this week|
What’re you planning this week for yummies for your family?
