Menu Plan Monday May 6, 2013

What a crazy weekend!!  There are at least 4 different posts I could write just from Saturday and Sunday.  I won't off course!!  But, maybe someday??

I will share the two biggies for me.

         #1  The celebration of a birth!!  Baby Samuel turned 2 on Saturday!!!! Where has the time gone??
My beautiful baby boy on the day after his birth.  So cute!!

Big boy Samuel on his birthday!!
My how he has grown!!

The big boy with his birthday cake!!  I had to do some serious improvising because I couldn't find most of what I needed to make the cake I wanted.  All in all,  not too bad!!!  

           #2  The sorrows of missing mom!!  Sunday was 5 years that my Mom has been a resident in Heaven. 
                 There are so many days I miss being able to just pick up the phone and tell her something one of
                 the kids had done or call and just complain!!!  But,  I have the promise of seeing her again.  I 
                 have blessed hope and look forward to a blessed reunion!!!

There was so much more that happened in just those two days, but I just don't feel like rehashing them!!  So,  on to this weeks menu!!!

MONDAY - Crock pot chicken,  mashed potatoes, green beans,  yeast rolls

TUESDAY - Baked chicken, crock pot sweet potatoes (didn't get to this last week), peas

WEDNESDAY - Homemade pizza

THURSDAY - Grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, mac n cheese, baked beans


SATURDAY - Spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread

SUNDAY - I'm hoping to spend the day outside with the family,  so I'm thinking a nice picnic would be in order.  We'll see,  that of course is flexible!!  BUT,  since it's Mother's Day,  I'M NOT COOKING!!!!!

Enjoy the week!!  Thanks for taking time to read my blog and head on over to Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday for even more menu ideas and fabulous recipes!!
