Menu Plan Monday

Linked up at ORGJUNKIE.COM

Well this is an interested week for us as I have to work two days during dinner time, and will be out of town on Friday night until Saturday night.  Hmmmm~ 
However, I do have some meals ready to go, cleaned, washed, and frozen for whatever might happen...  Here are five menu ideas for this week!

  • Steak Fingers-Mashed Potatoes-Fresh Fruit

  • Turkey Tacos-Yellow Rice-Fresh Fruit

  • Pasta/Alfredo with Grilled Chicken-Green Beans-Fresh Fruit

  • Meatball Parmesan-Garlic Bread-Fresh Fruit

  • Grilled Chicken or Mahi Ceasar Salad-Fresh Fruit
QUICK TIP:  Next time your fire up your grill, cook your meat, veggies, etc... for several meals in advance.  Makes it a whole lot easier to get your meal to the
table with the delicious taste of the grill.

I know our menu may seem redundant with FRESH FRUIT at EVERY MEAL.  Well in all defense, we live 2 miles from a farmers market and who wouldn't want FRESH FRUIT at every meal.  It is inexpensive, healthy, and everyone eats it!  I hope everyone has a great week of cooking and eating.  I plan on trying new recipes next week from a few new cookbooks I got from The Pampered Chef.  I will be sure to include links to get those new recipes!

Until we eat again...

First Day of Kindergarten

Today was the first day of Carter's school career!  He was so excited to wake up this morning and dress in his uniform (thank God!), and make his way to his new classroom at Calvary Christian.  His new teacher for Kindergarten is Mrs. Reena.  He told me about his new desk, and all the new things he learned today.  He is so excited to have Emma in his class this year since they have gone to school three years and not been in the same class. 
This year he will focus on Reading, Math, and Language.  They will also have studies in Science, Computers, Art, History, Music, PE, Social Studies & Geography.  That sure is a lot, but I am certain he will maintain a hunger for all the new adventures he will go on this year and become a walking sponge with all types of new facts to teach Hubs and I about.

*On a side note-littlest boy sure was sad when Carter left this morning. 
They have become buddies this past summer.

Last Weekend Before School Starts!

The ocean was so calm, like a lake. 
This past Saturday we had a treat out to Palm Beach Pier and breakfast at Benny's on the Beach our all time favorite place to dine at the beach.  Griffin can officially out eat myself and definetely Carter.  It was very warm and humid (love that about FL summer's) so our beach picture was foggy. We ended the day for Papa's 71st birthday and two tuckered out kidlets!

I promise...

Haven't we all heard those endearing words..."I promise..." well I do...
I appreciate some of the emails and comments I have got about my blog-thank you fans-LOL!

I am working on a few projects right now (crafting, food, and photo stuff) so I have slacked a bunch to keep up with my personal blog and keeping it updated throughout the summer.  In the last three weeks we have traveled on our family get-a-way, I attended a AWESOME ALL*DAY craft day/workshop (thanks mom & Joe 4 hanging with the little people), gone to a four day MOPS conference at the GAYLORD-wha hooo with my MOPS leadership group, attended my grandmother's funeral (RIP DJ), my Pampered Chef business, and all the rest of the happenings with school starting (my golden child goes off to kindergarten (*sniff*sniff) and my No Child Left Behind job.  WHewwwwww~ I'm tired of just listing all that in the last three weeks.  So give me a few days and I'll get those photos up and the musings of our summer as it comes to a end in a few days~

Be blessed always as you go through the day!
