Another digi card

Non-traditional Christmas colors but I like it anyway. She's a beautiful angel.

Music to my ears

actually it really is. Trevor is doing an amazing job with the drums. So glad he doesn't play the clarinet - no offense to those that do.

Menu Monday

Today is the day I do my menu planning. Well, actually I do it on Sunday night ;)
It makes our life so much easier to know what's ahead and not have to rush to plan what to eat. Love it!
Sunday: chicken salad and veggie platter
Monday: chicken in Italian dressing and parmesan, sauteed green beans, rice

Tuesday: Spaghetti and salad

Wednesday: Potato Soup (yes again, it was a big hit) and ham sandwiches

Thursday: Pizza (take out) it's cleaning day
Friday: Steak on the grill!! or maybe that will be Saturday's dinner....

3 amigos

We got to get outside and truly enjoy this beautiful day. Walking, biking, boarding... throwing rocks (in a creek!), climbing rocks, finding big sticks.... makes for a good bonus fall day. Top it off with homemade soup and cream cheese pumpkin muffins and we are a household of happy campers tonight.

More card making

is happening in my house - having such fun being creative. The frog and the lilypads are both popped up. The glaze is still drying...

Menu Planning

Yes, it's true, I menu plan. It makes life soooo much easier - most of the time. Now, I'm not a pro, I don't HAVE to stick to the plan, and some weeks I only plan part of the week and fill it in later (shhhhhhh ;). Here's what I've got for this week:

Sunday: soup and sandwiches for lunch - BBQ and peas with carrots for supper

Monday: Stuffed pork chops, garlic rosemary potatoes, corn and green beans

Tuesday: Baked Potato Soup - new recipe - hope we like it!

Wednesday: Marinated chicken in italian dressing, rice, salad

Thursday: Cinnamon French Toast and sausage

Friday: take out! of some kind, any kind ;)

Saturday: will wait to see what the weekend brings...

Keep in mind, Mom made mac and cheese for the party Saturday and forgot it - SCORE for some time this week!!
