Spring is almost here

Spring is a busy time in our home.  Baseball season starts up again, lots of birthdays, and I just want to be outside playing with my kiddos.  Our baby boy is crawling and getting into everything right now, and I'm lucky if I can get anything done in the kitchen!  I've been trying to get a lot of prep done on Sunday afternoons to make weeknights easier.  Spring Fever?  In our house, its summer fever since I get off work in about 9 weeks, and I get to play at stay at home mom for the summer (with a 9 year old, that means I have a lot of taxi-driving to do!)

Here's our meal plan for this week:
Monday- Spicy Asian Chicken
Tuesday- Corned Beef in the Crockpot (baseball night) and steamed cabbage
Wednesday- Asparagus Frittata with spinach salad
Thursday- Corned Beef Hash
Friday- Pizza and Movie night

Cooking Up a Storm!

While we were on vacation, my copy of Weelicious came in from Amazon.  There are so many great recipes in there, and last week I tried a few.  I'll post a couple of my versions next week.  Here's my menu for this week:

Sunday- Pork Tenderloin with roast carrots
Tuesday- Veggie Calzones 
Wednesday- Pepperocini beef Sandwiches with cherry tomato salad
Thursday- Leftovers
Friday- Pizza and movie night

Hope you have a great week!

I'm back

I'm not sure I like wordpress either, so I'm back and going to fool around here some more.  I've been gone for a year, and now I have a one year old!  Its been a whirlwind year between our new little one and all the activities my older one has!  I need to start meal planning, and I've also been making some pretty cool recipes for my little one that I want to share.  I'm starting back up with our meal plan.  This week, we have 2 birthday dinners.  Little one is going to be one on Monday and my husband's birthday is Wednesday.  I'm trying to keep it simple since its a back to work week, but I still want to make it special.  Here's our plan...

Saturday: BBQ chicken sandwiches in the crockpot
Sunday: Crockpot Beef Stew
Monday: Hamburgers for Little One's birthday
Tuesday: Empanadas with leftover BBQ chicken
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
Thursday: Artichoke and Spinach Paninis
Friday: Pizza and Movie night
